Afternoon tea in the shearing capital of the world (allegedly)

Te Kuiti in the King Country proclaims itself the “shearing capital of the world.” I’m not sure how such a title is bestowed, but the town definitely takes its links to sheep shearing seriously — with this seven metre high statue of a shearer at work.

Sheep shearing is not really my thing; but carrot cake is. Eaten at Stoked cafe in the old Te Kuiti railway station.

  1. ha ha; I was eager to see what place was the SHARiNG capital of the world….. – now I’m a bit put off πŸ˜‰
    I blame it on my failing eye sights – but I DO see that this looks like one rich carrot cake PLUS…. (I think I’d only have the ice cream with berries)

  2. I’ve seen some sheep shearing done on television – mighty impressive when done with expertise.
    But when there’s cake, there’s cake – who cares about sheep then? πŸ˜‰ xxx
