This week we are really feeling that vibe. We are busy, the door is open more often than not and our new (rather lovely) blinds are down just enough to shield our customer's eyes but not enough to deny them their much needed fix of vitamin D, albeit through the single glazed Georgian window.
We are restlessly moving our new stock around to help us feel inspired again by our own surroundings, those 4 walls we see on a 6 day a week basis. Naturally we are taking our inspiration from our trusted friends, the Swedes; spring bulbs, on trend colours and palettes provided to us by our stylish Scandinavia suppliers in an attempt to make Fika feel airy, pretty and somewhere you might want to stick around a bit...
Most importantly, we are anxiously awaiting a palette from Malmo which has on board a brand new venture for Fika. A company whose very existence is all about Fika but not of the coffee variety. Oh no, this is a Swedish/Taiwanese couple dedicated to designing and providing tea like you've never experienced it before. A brand new generation of artisan tea flavours, to quote them directly. Of course it'll be served in the Nordic fashion so you can experience a whole new tea drinking experience that's authentic, healthy (in fact super healthy) and will be offered as ice teas when the weather warms up....happily, this company has the super cool branding of 'teaministeriet' which translates directly as The Tea Ministry. We simply cannot wait. More to come and watch this space...
