Taytay loves Perth and thought the soon to be Indiana Tea House was “one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.”


“So here we are in Perth. It’s a beach town on the Indian Ocean and it’s beautiful. It’s 25C and sunny and yesterday I went to Cottesloe Beach,” she wrote.

The letter was written on an typically beautiful Perth day in March of 2012, during her ‘Speak Now’ concert tour.

“I’ve never seen water that crystal clear. And white sand.

“After our beach afternoon, we went to this restaurant right on the beach called Indiana.”

Taylor Swift described the iconic Cottesloe beach building as an “old fancy hotel” with “old world arches, antique tables and big French doors opening to views of the blue ocean.”

“We sat there for hours drinking strawberry Mojitos and eating calamari.”
