The newly launched Tea Gift Company is aiming to deliver the perfect brew by offering small but beautifully presented packages via their online store.
Founded by Pip Gorst who sold her successful online resort wear business on the family’s return from Australia, Pip describes the inspiration behind the Tea Gift Company: “In Brisbane the heat can be relentless meaning traditional gifts such as flowers or chocolates just don’t last. As an alternative I would create unique tea-related gifts. Everyone would comment on the beautiful packaging and the originality of the gift. Back in the UK, I realised that tea gifts are the perfect alternative to flowers or chocolates – especially as we are such a nation of tea drinkers’.
Pip selects only the finest quality teas (available loose or as pyramid teabags) with blends including Morning – the perfect blend of Indian, Kenyan and Ceylon teas; Noon – Lovers Leap, a Single Estate, Ceylon Tea; and Joy – Darjeeling, Margaret Hope, 2nd flush, all ethically sourced and selected from specialized Tea Masters.
Each tea blend is chosen carefully for their individual characteristics relating to special events or celebrations. For example, the Mr. & Mrs. tea caddy includes a velvety combination of a fine Chinese speciality black tea blended with layers of rose petals. The rich malty flavor from the tea and the subtle sweetness and fragrance from the rose petals are perfect partners and the marriage is a very successful one, and a fabulous gift for those celebrating anniversaries or a wedding. Other gifts include presents for Mothers, Birthday, New Baby, New Home, Thank You, For Him, For Her.
The Tea Gift Company has also created a selection of teacups and mugs that complement the teas. All gifts are presented in a stunning black tea caddy and wrapped in beautiful packaging in a presentation box to arrive on your loved ones doorstep with your personal gift message included. Tea caddy prices start from £5.75, plus postage.
