you know me well you’ll know I love tea; it’s something of an
obsession in my family so when I was asked to review a set from
Victoria Mae Designs I could hardly wait! I chose the Sherlock
Holmes Tea Gift Set which comes in two different sizes; the small contains 8 teabags (£7.50), the medium
contains 16 teabags (£15) and the large contains 24 teabags (£22.50).
is a South African designer-maker now based in the UK, and you
may have seen her
in Country Living, Design Week, Elle and
many more. All teabags are handmade with white paper and white cotton
and you can choose from three packaging options; a card
box or a small paper gift bag or loose envelopes wrapped in tissue
my package arrived I was so excited to see what was inside. I adore
Sherlock Holmes and his quotes are quick-witted, clever and sharp; which means with every cup of tea comes a little giggle or a
reflection upon my current situation. These teabags certainly make you think!
The pouches are perfectly printed in various fonts with complimentary backgrounds, and they just look too good to use! But of course I had to sample the tea, right? I tried out the peppermint and I have to say, it was bloomin’ delicious!
I love everything about this set; it’s inspiring, gorgeously artistic and just so much fun to use. I have already decided that even after using them all I’m
going to keep the packaging and
do something (anything!) crafty with them!
I love how each one has a different
design and quote, as well as a mixture of flavours within the set.
You don’t find out the flavour until you open it up, but this set has
a selection from British tea companies and includes the following:
English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Camomile, Rooibos,
Indian Spice Chai, Mint (spearmint), Jasmine Green Tea and Honeybush.
isn’t your cup of tea (excuse the pun and how can you not like
Sherlock?!) then there are lots of other beautiful themes available
such as The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland and a
super cute Dog Lovers Tea Set!
