Those fancy teas come from an English brand called Fortnum and Mason, and include flavours like gin & tonic, bloody mary etc. For the tea lovers out there, there are multiple luxury tea options to sip on. Listed below are a few:
The luxury shopping destination in London retails its own brand of teas too. English breakfast, earl gray and English afternoon teas may be staples, but the brand has some exciting flavours to choose from. Sample strawberry & cream, summer flowers and radiance infusion ones. Perhaps, once done with all the tea shopping, head to the store’s tea rooms for some freshly baked scones and finger sandwiches at afternoon tea time.
From the land of beer, Germany, comes the luxury tea house Wital. The brand has multiple product lines like finest, organic and wellness teas, and pays close attention to packaging. The teas come in sleek, single colour boxes, with details printed on the cover. Exotic flavours like white rose, chocolate cinnamon, raspberry verbena, lavender and aloe vera avocado baobab are just some examples of what the brand has to offer.
This Singapore-based tea brand is a little over a decade old, but has very quickly made inroads into the luxury tea space. Innovative packaging like caviar tins instantly provide a lift to the brand’s offering. TWG has a range called the caviar tea tins, with names like the Grand Explorer Tea Set, Mon Amour Tea and Talisman Tea Set. With those pretty tins and exotic names, the aura game at TWG is strong.
Cartwright And Butler
Another English addition to the tea table. This one though is known more for its biscuits than teas. But then, what’s a tea party without a little bite of heaven, right? Tins of stem ginger biscuits, some salted caramel ones, and perhaps a few strawberry and chocolate ones thrown in for extra measure would be a good idea. They’ll go down perfectly with those earl gray cups.
Move over Swiss chocolates. There is a new addition to the shopping list for the fancy folk visiting Switzerland - the gourmet tea brand Sirocco. Take your pick from Yellow Wish, Pina Moringa or White Peach.
