Charles and Marie: Tea for Jet Setters
Someone once told me that Franz Ferdinand would not record in America because they could not find a good cup of tea. True or not, I can see why this might have affected them so much. Everyone has one little piece of home that they need to have with them where ever they travel, be it a MacDonalds in France, a Calvin Klein in Italy or perhaps a Seven 11 in Tokyo just to make someone feel at home. If tea's is your thing, here's your answer. These teas are packaged in a wool bag-envelope that unfolds like a cross and the size is perfect to pack away in your suitcase. The beautiful packaging is by Les Petites Emplettes for Leaf, and the tea is better still! These natural loose leaf teas come in flavours like: earl grey scented with natural bergamot from Sicily, white tea, green tea scented with osmanthus, black tea scented with rose, black tea scented with lychee, and regular black tea. There have only been 500 of these made, so you better bet they'll be gone even before the water's finished boiling!
Particular about your tea? Here's a wonderful collection of 100% natural leaf teas: earl grey scented with natural bergamot from Sicily, white tea, green tea scented with osmanthus, black tea scented with rose, black tea scented with lychee, and everyday black tea.
