Six Speciality Artisan Tea Gift Selection
Teas have been consumed for thousands of years, initially in Asia and originate from the leaves of the camellia bush. Introduced into Europe in the 16th Century, tea is now a worldwide occupation and in Britain unbelievably, more than 165 million cups of tea are consumed every day. The word chai, ubiquitous in many countries, derives from the ancient Chinese for ‘bitter herb’ and found its way from Persia with tea along the Silk Road over 1500 years ago.
Here we offer you a selection of green, black and rooibos tea bases with a range of fruits, flowers and exotic flavours. These teas from around the world will take you on a journey of discovery through a variety of tastes, colours and aromas.
Each of the ingredients are individually packed in round clear containers and holds between 10-13 grams of tea. Four containers are held in an elegant clear gift tube measuring approximately 250mm in length.
