Tea Quotes

Tea Quote - As far as her mom was concerned, tea fixed everything... In case of Armageddon, steep for three to five minutes.

“As far as her mom was concerned, tea fixed everything. Have a cold? Have some tea. Broken bones? There’s a tea for that too. Somewhere in her mother’s pantry, Laurel suspected, was a box of tea that said, ‘In case of Armageddon, steep three to five minutes’.”

– Aprilynne Pike

Teas to Relax With - Creamy Earl Grey

A simple pot of tea can be the perfect antidote to a hectic day. Just steep, sip, and let your worries drift away. Here are a few of our favourite teas to relax with after a busy day:

Creamy Earl Grey

This is our most popular black tea, and for good reason! Smooth black tea and citrusy bergamot create a fragrant, soothing infusion. The addition of creamy vanilla is our unique take on this quintessential British afternoon tea.
