I admit. I’m quite a tea junkie. I’m one of those who have my caffeine fix from coffee while I’m in a cafe. But I’d very much prefer to sip tea when I’m in the office / at home. I have somewhere around 14 different teas in the office. I’m tempted to open a tea salon in that small corner of mine. Naturally, I was thrilled to learn that The 1872 Clipper Tea Co. has crafted a Christmas gift pack this year, better known as ‘Three Gifts of Christmas‘.
Each tin of tea leaves costs $15 when bought separately, but for just $38, you not only get 3 tins, but with them wrapped, all ready to be given as a luxury tea gift. What I love about this tea gift set is its variety of tea leaves; comprising black, green and white tea.
Hope: Blend of green tea, willow bark and strawberry fruit pieces.
Love: Blend of black tea and blueberry. Complete with (visible) sugar hearts.
Peace: Blend of white tea and peach. Open the ‘porthole’ cover, a dove might appear.
Visually, ‘Love’ wins, hands down, thanks to its scattered red, heart-shaped sugar.
Smell, ‘Peace’. Powerful but gentle and soothing fruity note.
Taste, ‘Peace’ is my favorite combination. Lightly flavored, but strong smell presence. I am also pleased to learn that the brewed teas aren’t anywhere astringent. And while they are of fruity flavors and smell really heavy, they are not overpowering. I could still very well savor the respective tea leaves.
