Sharing tea is the perfect way to celebrate every occasion. Below are some of our favourite times to share tea:
Saying goodbye to friends or family before they move away or set off on an adventure is the perfect occasion to share tea. If they are embarking on a journey let their trip inspire your choice of teas by featuring a selection of teas from around the world. We suggest the following selection: Japanese Genmaicha, Darjeeling and Organic Assam from India, Vanilla Almond Rooibos from South Africa, Cream Earl Grey from the United Kingdom, and Moonlong from China.
A tea party is a fun dress-up opportunity for a child’s birthday. Choose a theme (The Mad Hatter or Beatrix Potter are two of our all-time favourites), and serve fun, flavourful teas that make the guests feel like they have stepped into a fairytale. Some of our recommendations for children are: Peppermint, Abegweit Lullaby, Vanilla Almond Rooibos, and Berry Hip Rooibos. If you are feeling creative, try making tea popsicles. They are a tearrific way to fancy things up and aren’t too labour intensive!
It may not be an occasion per se, but pairing tea with your favourite chocolates or cheeses is an art form that, when mastered, will win the admiration of even the most discerning of guests. Teas that pair well with dark chocolate are Lady’s Slipper, Moonlong, Peach My Cheeks, Chai, Assam, Darjeeling and Earl Grey. If you are more of a milk chocolate lover, try Sencha or Sencha Cherry.
