Mama Tea’s Year
2012 has been the year Mama Tea got into visual story telling, or in other words we had some fun with iPhone photography and used it give you a peek behind the scenes of Mama Tea HQ and some of our exploits. Some pictures we took for a practical reason, some we tried to make arty and some were just for fun. Here’s some of our favourite pictures of Mama Tea’s year.
Mama Tea on Instagram
Our first ever Instagram photo, this was taken for a friday giveaway we were running on Facebook on Valentine’s Day.
Mama Tea’s Birthday
This is one of our enduring favourite photos of the year, our birthday cake for Mama Tea’s third birthday in April.
Mama Tea and the Jubilee
Another enduring favourite is this picture we created for the Jubilee in June. This was one of our attempts at being artistic and this picture was the subject of a blog about using photography apps on the iPhone.
New Packaging for Mama Tea
A highlight of the year was our shiny fresh new packaging for Mama Tea. We’ve taken lots of photos of our new packaging this year including…
… an arty attempt at a picture of morning mama.
Mama Tea lunches with the Prime Minister
This was also the year that the mama had lunch at Number 10 with the Prime Minister…
… and met George Osbourne.
Mama Tea H.Q.
We also enjoyed taking photographs of Edinburgh (the home of MT HQ) this year. This picture is taken from the Dean Bridge looking over Dean Village. We’re so lucky in Edinburgh that the city is beautiful and the light changes all the time giving us lots of photo opportunities.
Mama Tea selling Tea to China
The mama also took some amazing photos of Tokyo and Shanghai (Shanghai above) when she visited on a trade mission in November. The trade mission was a great success and it’s a case of watch this space to find out what business opportunities develop as a result of the trip.
Merry Christmas from all at Mama Tea
The year has nearly ended and these are the Christmas lights that twinkle at us each evening as we leave MT HQ. We’re having our Christmas lunch tomorrow and we’d like to wish all our customers and supporters a Merry Christmas.
It’s been an amazing year for Mama Tea and we’re looking forward to taking more photographs next year, follow all our attempts at photography on instagram (username: mama_tea).
