Lady Bonin is coming for Tea

Posted on Jul 2, 2014 | 0 comments

We are delighted to be hosting the ladies on the #GonzoTeaTrek for lunch on Tuesday 8th July, the last day of their travels through the Overberg.

One of the things that is so special about Dutchies is that it is on Grotto Beach. So many people choose to begin and end journeys here. Whether it be journeying into a new year or a marriage or bidding the ocean farewell before travelling on or ending a long hard hike; Grotto is an iconic place to mark these important moments.

As the restaurant right on this glorious Blue Flag beach we get to share these moments – and feel privileged to be able to do so.

Read more below about the planned travels of Lady Bonin and her wingman Thaya through the Overberg on their #GonzoTeaTrek.


Jessica (Lady Bonin Tea) and Thaya (Love Overberg) will be traversing the Overberg with the Lady Bonin gypsy Tea Caravan, for the#GonzoTeaTrek campaign, from 2-8 July, 2014. This is the first official campaign to promote tourism in the Overberg, conceptualised by the new Social Media agency, The Wanderlust Club, for ON! – an Overberg business network launching on the 2nd of July in collaboration with

Jessica and Thaya will be highlighting ethical, conscious and ‘green’ businesses, movements, projects and more, while travelling through the Overberg for a week (between spontaneously opening the Tea Caravan in little towns and serving tea, like a mobile Mad Hatter’s tea party!). Jessica and Thaya hope that their #GonzoTeaTrek campaign will create awareness around how many people there are doing wonderful ‘green’ things in the Overberg, promoting ecotourism with the delightful gypsy Tea Caravan and a huge dollop of ‘Mad Hatter’ humour in tow. Jessica and Thaya will also be pledging or planting trees to match their mileage for the teatrek, in an effort to reduce their carbon footprint. Keep an eye out for unusual ‘tea pairings’, yoga in weird and wonderful places, raw food and even vegan wines as they post Instagram videos, pics and moments filmed on their GoPro!
