What a beautiful collection. The cup is beautiful, it invites one to slow down, enjoy the beauty of nature and relax with a luxurious cup of delightful Tea Forte tea. The box is reminiscent of an earlier, slower time when it was more natural to sit and slow down and enjoy the little things in life, art, nature and a cup of tea. It reminds me of having tea with my grandmother who taught me how to brew and enjoy tea. The tea collection is a wonderful blend of an afternoon tea, Chocolate Rose, a fruity, fun tea, Green Mango Peach, and a soothing evening tea, Chamomile Citron, as well as the sweet yet spicy Vanilla Pear and the great new Strawberry Hibiscus. I love that a portion of the sales go to the NYBG work in plant research, conservation, horticulture and education. Well done Tea Forte!
Everything about this set is beautiful and well planned - all the way down to the gift box that it comes in (which I will be saving and re-using). The cup is the typical Tea Forte version just in pink and you get to have that little leaf sticking out of the top. For some reason I just love that. I found the tea blend choices to be perfect for the spring/summer season as nothing has a "heavy" flavor to it. It's all very well planned, quite elegant and makes a thoughtful gift that can still be enjoyed even after the tea is gone.
