Jessica Bonin, also known as Lady Bonin, quit her job in film and advertising to pursue her passion for tea.
She opened her own tea factory and packaged her own brand of tea, Lady Bonin's Tea Parlour.
Last week she opened the first Tea Bar on Long Street after selling her tea at markets and festivals and operating from a caravan.
I wanted to experience tea in a way that was not out there, just like all the options that are offered on coffee.— Jessica Bonin, founder of The Tea Bar
