Tea Gifts

Chai, çay, tea or teh… Whatever name you call it by…. tea has become an integral part of our daily life. Reading morning newspaper, travelling in a train, driving down in wilderness, watching the rain, or waiting at a bus stop in mountains… we enjoy our cup of tea very much.
I am sure many of you are tea drinkers like me. Though I have tea twice a day and can manage with only a cup a day, the husband is a big lover of tea and can easily consume 10-15 cups albeit in small quantities!

Simple plain tea with milk, Herbal, masala, Assam, Lemon, Ginger-Tulsi, Apple or any other flavored tea… Are you a fan of only one kind or do you like to try out different flavours? That brings us the question.

Do you buy tea as a gift or souvenir?
I do. Many times.

I once had three Tin boxes from England in the shape of a letter box, open bus and a telephone booth. It was an attractive gift set of embossed metal caddies featuring famous icons from London’s rich heritage. A compact size for tourists to carry. I still remember the color… RED ! And the flavours were English Breakfast tea, Earl Grey tea and English Afternoon tea. 😀

Tea Gifts are a delight for the tea connoisseur and beginning tea drinker alike. If it is lose then I buy in small quantities. Packaged in beautiful boxes in shapes of Mugs, teapots or even some monument gives it a nice feel & makes it memorable too.

  1. Shreya,
    Well, I always carry a variety of gifts and when you meet somebody for a cup of coffee (tea), you can easily find out whether the person is fond of tea or not. 🙂

    P.S.- I generally buy tea for my dear ones who are tea drinkers.
