On The Hunt For Tea

I was very disappointed when I first saw this about a year ago:


A sad site

Not because I naturally have anything against people in the decorating trade, but because it used to be this



The Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum

The website says it's closed for renovation and yes apparently the decorators are there, but it doesn't look like they're doing renovations to the place.

Those of you who follow me on Twitter will know I saw a sign indicating that it might have moved on Tuesday on the way back from molly. It was this sign in fact:


A sign of hope

Having wondered about in the dark on Tuesday in the middle of the night and failed to find it, I thought I'd go back today during the daylight.

I didn't find the museum, but found this instead:


Hope abandoned

According to wikipedia, the museum used to be located at Butler's Wharf, which these must be a remnant of, so it appears it is closed.

Hopefully one day it will reappear, but it doesn't look like it's going to be in the location any time soon and the website doesn't give any indication of a new location.
