One needn't be a tea lover to enjoy this unique business that produces greeting cards, notebooks, trinket boxes and other products adorned with recycled tea bags collected locally and abroad. Jill Heyes, a schoolteacher who moved to South Africa from England in 1996, came up with the idea for this business after witnessing the overwhelming poverty and apparent hopelessness in Imizamo Yethu, an informal settlement in Hout Bay, and employed residents to refashion the tea bags into saleable products. On weekdays you can come out to the Hout Bay factory, watch production, meet craftspeople from Imizamo Yethu and enjoy a cup of tea. The company also operates a stall in the Blue Shed of the Victoria & Albert Waterfront that's open daily.

Several locations

If you're new to South African wine and not sure what to buy, it's a good idea to head to a Winesense store. There are four in Cape Town and two in Johannesburg. Each store has state-of-the-art equipment that allows you to try before you buy some of the wines, whiskeys and premium spirits from South Africa and around the world. The stylish stores pour more than the average wine bar. Olive oil is also sold, and there are many fun events involving top chefs and hot new winemakers. Winesense stores ship overseas, so you don't have to worry about getting your purchases home.
