A tea company called ‘tea horse’ have a brilliant Christmas survival kit, which is a mini Tea Horse Taster Box, containing four loose leaf teas curated for their specific flaours and properties.
They also have a subscription to their Tea Horse Taster Boxes which arrive monthly and could be a brilliant gift for an avid tea drinker.
Some of the Christmas edition includes ‘Winter Spice’ which is a bespoke tea blend which was created by the Tea Horse Master Blenders and contains black tea, vanilla, cloves, cinnamon, peppercorns, nutmeg, orange rind, cardamom, coriander seed and bay leaf. It sounds amazing so I’m sure it will taste amazing as well. For more ideas go to their website http://www.teahorse.co.uk
London’s ‘Tea Palace’ (one of my favourite tea houses) in Covent Garden and Chelsea, has so many ideas for gifts for tea lovers that I could just keep buying the lot.
The Book of Tea (£25) offers a selection of 4 signature teas, Assam Superior, Imperial Ceylon, Finest Darjeeling and Palace Earl Grey all presented in a vintage tin ‘book’.
They have an amazing Granny Tea Cosy (£19.95) which is a tea cosy in traditional and festive style, with classic green, red and white colours.
Or the Rosy Robin Mug (£9.95) which is a lovely fine bone china mug depicting one of nature’s best known Winter visitors.
