About the speaker

I am 29 and have been living in Cape Town for over 8 years. I studied Drama and Philosophy and did my honours in Film and Media Production. I began Lady Bonin’s Tea Parlour as a platform for expressing my creativity, sharing my passions and ultimately fulfilling my pursuit of happiness. The caravan was born as a solution to limited finances. It quickly morphed into Cape Town’s first and most loved mobile truck, or tea room. The caravan allowed me to introduce a new product into a market in a fun, delightful and beautiful way.

The company has three main aspects, the caravan, distribution and the new shop. Lady Bonin’s Tea Parlour’s methods allows consumers to reconnect with themselves and others through the nurturing, comforting and age old act of tea drinking by reforming the tradition to suit a modern lifestyle. The sharing of which provides a magical escape with the benefit of a healthier, happier and more fulfilled life.
