Beautiful tea to nourish the body and mind

A cup of tea is one of life’s great pleasures. Whether your tea gift is a thank you, a Christmas or birthday gift or to treat mum upon the arrival of her new baby, your gift will give that person a moment of restorative relaxation every time they brew a cup of tea. What a beautiful way to keep connected with someone special.

Our small gift box includes two different artisan teas, each with a unique fragrance and flavour.

The teas in our gift box change regularly. We include one darker style tea (a black or dark oolong) as well as a lighter style (light oolong, green or white tea). We currently have Lapsang Souchong and White Pekoe Silver Needles in this box (see tasting notes below). If you would like something different, we're happy to change the teas - simply add a note to your order in your cart. 

_____________

Lapsang Souchong, black tea, China
Ripe plum, wood, smokey finish
Lapsang Souchong often thought of as a highly smokey tea but this is an unsmoked version of the tea. From the moment you smell the dry leaves you are struck by an assortment of flavour notes - plum, stone-fruit tree blossoms, tree bark - which carry on through into the steeped tea alongside notes of malt, freshly-cut wood, mineral and a subtle smoke finish. This Lapsang Souchong is a rich and clean black tea. 

White Pekoe Silver Needles, white tea, China
Sweet hay, sugarcane, lychee
These plump, soft downy buds are the first flush of 2018, plucked by hand in the Chinese Spring. After a brief wilting period, they are dried with warm wind that is tunnelled through the tea. This is a refreshing, sweet and nicely rounded white tea with a pale sun-set yellow liquor and notes of hay, sugarcane and lychee fruit.
