What’s new at the Carmién Tea Shop


Have you been to the Carmién Tea Shop at De Tol Farm Deli?

Located on a historic piece of land along the Piekenierskloof Pass, is a white building filled with many stories. Stories of Pikemen, toll fees and a nurse with her first aid cabinet. The building acted as a supply station and pitstop to many travellers since 1864. Back in the days, the beautiful Piekenierskloof Wines Tasting Room used to be the original winery and the Carmién Tea Shop contained a waterhole for donkeys and horses of travellers. Still keeping their character, the buildings have been transformed to be enjoyed by visitors. To keep the memory and tradition alive, we offer honest food, exciting pairings, quality artisanal products and excellent wine and rooibos tea from the surrounding to visitors.
