Chai Walli Workshop

Saturday May 5 - 11am to 1.00pm

$20 per person

Discover the bliss of sipping chai tea in this very special The Art Of Chai Class featuring the renowned Uppma Virdi, the founder of Chai Walli. A former corporate lawyer, she started Chai Walli as a hobby, inspired by her grandfather – a doctor who specialised in remedial Indian teas.

In The Art of Chai Class, the origins of chai are explored and its role in Indian culture, its Ayurvedic or healing qualities along with its complex flavours and how to make the perfect brew. You'll be tasting different blends throughout the morning.

By the time the class is over you’ll know all about the different chai teas and how to brew chai at home using traditional Indian methods.

There’ll be prizes throughout the day and a goody bag with chai samples to take home. But it’s also fun meeting the inspirational Uppma, who’s been featured on TV shows, listed in the influential Forbes Magazine 30 under 30 and was recently invited to host International Women’s Day in India.

Tickets for this event are $20. Places are strictly limited and bookings are essential. Click on the image below to purchase your ticket.

Peter's Pink Ribbon Breakfast

The annual Peter’s of Kensington Pink Ribbon Breakfast bought an extra rosy glow to our store on Thursday, October 26 and it wasn’t just the pretty archway of pink balloons over the doorway.

Our feel good event of the year, which raised an impressive $30,710, was a sell out and a testament to our loyal customers and suppliers who are always keen to get behind the National Breast Cancer Foundation. It’s a cause so close to all of our hearts because we all know someone who’s been touched by breast cancer.

Showing a generosity of spirit in keeping with the Pink Ribbon theme, arriving guests including Real Housewives of Sydney’s Nicole Gazal O’Neil, in a fetching pink dress with hair to match, were presented with crystal flutes of Moet & Chandon with Peter’s of Kensington’ gift bags on every seat. The tables were set with Miranda Kerr’s collection of Royal Albert china and resting on them was an indulgent spread of scones, pastries, cakes and pastries, rivalling even tea at The Ritz.


With a charming duo providing the entertainment, one of the highlights of the day was the raffle with over 100 valuable prizes kindly donated by some of the biggest names in kitchewares, fashion and homewares.

No wonder that all of our guests left happy, judging by the number of pale pink balloons merrily bobbing up and down as they were carried along Anzac Parade following the event. But not to worry if you missed out because the countdown is already on for next year’s Pink Ribbon Breakfast.
