Museum Selection Afternoon Tea

Elephant Afternoon Tea Caddy* link
When the Museum Selection read about my love of tea in the British Tag they kindly contacted me to see if I would be interested in trying their Elephant Afternoon Tea Caddy*. I gladly accepted their kind offer as one can never have enough teabags and after a week of drinking coffee in America I was missing a decent cuppa.

Museum Selection is an online retailer that works with various museums and galleries to offer all manner of trinkets such as the aforementioned tea, homewares and stationary. It is somewhat reminiscent to me of Past Times a shop that sadly closed it's doors some years ago - does anyone else remember? It's the sort of website that can offer the perfect gift for that difficult to buy for friend or relative who might want something a little different than what is found on the high street?

So how did this amateur tea connoisseur find her afternoon tea? I must admit to being somewhat apprehensive to trying the teabags on their arrival. I take my tea very seriously and what if my last cup of the day as I retired for bed wasn't up to scratch? I eventually realised I was taking things far too seriously, took a teabag from the pretty tin which had been sitting ornamental in my kitchen for too long and made a brew. I'm pleased to say that any fears were unfounded and I have happily used these teabags over others for a number of days now and as expected made a sizeable dent in my stash. Mum was an unknowing guinea pig on one occasion and didn't notice any change to the usual tea I offered.

These are fine quality teabags made by Williamson made from tea grown in the Kenyan highlands using sustainable farming methods so if I dare mention Christmas if you have someone who is keen to support such interests and has a love of tea wouldn't this be the perfect gift they can enjoy time again, even once the tea has long gone due to the attractive tin they're housed in.

As I mentioned these wonderful tea caddies are just one of many gifts that can be found on their website here so why not take a peak, maybe you'll even find something to add to your Christmas list.

  4. Interesting packaging. I know I should not judge a book by its cover but truthfully I would not think to ever purchase tea or coffee in a tin like this. When I picture "tea time" I think of elegance cute sweet I think regal. Maybe I should think outside the box once in a while. Grace xoox

    1. Sounds like someone is already thinking about the Fortnum & Mason tea packaging!
