Twelve Days ‘Til Christmas…


Okay, so it’s actually fourteen days, but you don’t want to wait until the very last second to complete your shopping. We have a great selection of gifts for your tea loving recipient, and the price range is varied.

For the Mystery loving tea drinker, I would choose one of the teashop mysteries by Laura Childs and pair it with a package of tea by the same name in the title. For instance the first book in the series, Death by Darjeeling  paired with a tin or box of Darjeeling tea, the Champagne of teas, will delight your tea drinking mystery lover. Other titles include Shades of Earl Grey, Gunpowder Green, The English Breakfast Murders, Jasmine Moon Murders, Dragonwell Dead…you get the idea. The books all have recipes at the back for tea time. Price of the books ranges from $6.99 to $7.99 and tea selections from $3.50 and up. 

For the  family Grandparents, those of us who have all the “things” we’ll ever need, you can’t go wrong with a little gift of their favorite tea packaged up with a pack of McVitie’s Biscuits and a jar of luscious lemon curd. Wrapped up in a basket and tied with a ribbon, this selection is priced from about $10.00 and up. (Don’t get me wrong, this is not only for grandparents). Anyone would enjoy this selection.

We have a huge selection of teapots, cupsinfusersservewarebookstinyteapot jewelry…whew! Oh yes, and TEA; lots of tea ! Choose from loose leaf tea, tea bags, fancier and roomier tea sachets, priced from $3.50 and up.

So, come on in, and have a cup of tea while you’re here before moving on to your next engagement.teasetting.JPG
