Is there anything better in the whole wide world than a good cup of tea?
Okay, so winning the lottery or marrying the love of your life or getting stranded on a desert island full of cats or something, but APART from those things… Is there anything better than a cup of tea?
And before you say anything, yes, my milk jug is very cool, thank you. It’s part of my collection of ‘milk jugs in the shape of chickens where the milk comes out of their beaks’. It’s fun because it looks like the chicken is throwing up in your drink. It’s a fairly niche collection, but I like a challenge.
The tea that my chicken was ‘helping’ with today was a rather lovely earl grey from Blue Tea Box. I was excited to try them because their coffee – Blue Coffee Box – is my favourite coffee of all time, not even an exaggeration. The tea is a new strand to the business, offering rare and single-origin teas, ethically sourced from across the globe by specialist tea merchants.
Blue Tea Box works on a subscription model and you can choose either one large bag or three smaller bags delivered to your door every month, either for yourself or as a gift. Tell Blue Tea Box what kind of tea you normally like and your tea concierge selects your perfect teas. Fancy!
Your tea comes beautifully packaged in a letterbox friendly box and includes information abut the teas and tasting notes.
Blue Tea Box teas are ethically sourced from smallholders, local cooperatives and smaller plantations where possible. By encouraging the growth of high quality, often organic tea the farmers are better paid. This, in turn, enables them to support their families, villages and communities and to invest in sustainable farming and a better future.
Just as importantly, they’re delicious – fresh, fragrant and all round a great cup of tea.
Bee mocks me because I’m always going on about how the main thing I hate about being single is not having anyone bring me a cup of tea in bed in the morning, but I stand by it. It’s not just about the tea is it? It what it symbolises, having someone to care about you and do little things for you. When you’re making your own tea, it’s a similar thing – it’s the ritual of taking your time over it, boiling the kettle, putting the tea leaves in the teapot and waiting patiently while it brews.
