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. 😀
Here you can see Chinese tea of different flavours bought in Cambodia, Organic Sikkim tea and tea from Cameron Highlands, Malaysia.
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.
Apple, Pomegranate et al.. Turkish tea (Turkish: çay) is a type of tea that is popular mainly in the Turkish-speaking countries, but others like me also fall for it. 🙂
You can see, Dilmah tea from Sri Lanka, tea from Sabah, from USA, Turkey, Malaysia and from our own India.
Yes, I buy this kind of boxes as well…. just for gifting purpose.
