Hannah Tunnicliffe

New Zealand


Hannah Tunnicliffe was born in New Zeland but is a self-confessed nomad. After finishing a degree in social sciences, she lived in Australia, England, Macau, Canada and, memorably, a campervan named Fred. A career in human resources temporarily put her dream of becoming a writer on the backburner. She currently lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband, Matthew, and their two daughters. The Color of Tea is her first novel.

“It is not a cold day, but she looks warmed by the tea. Tea has that effect on people. I love watching it bring comfort.”

“I feel like I finally understand how family love is. Tangled, wounded, and wonderful. Imperfect. A forever love.”
Hannah Tunnicliffe, The Color of Tea

“Her smile was somehow a little too bright, but I watched as she showed me how she had scored the puff pastry and brushed it with oil. She got me to smell the thyme pressed between her fingers and thumb, and told me how good garlic was for keeping away colds. She preached about food and sang and laughed and baked until the light started to come in the windows. Then we sat and ate hot tart without knives and forks. She kissed my cheeks and smelled like garlic. I remember the hot cheese dropping onto Mama's sweater and drying to a rubbery streak against the wool.”
Hannah Tunnicliffe, The Color of Tea
