I have designed a set of 'Jane Austen teas' now presented individually in eco friendly, little round, white carboard tubs. I think these make a lovely gift for anyone who admires the many wonderful characters and places that feature within her novels.
The tubs are filled with a variety of my loose leaf tea blends, each one has been chosen carefully to suit the character or place; please refer to the individual description to find out more details of the teas.
As an extra special treat - I also offer a fabulous little tea infuser which carries a silhouette of Jane herself and will certainly add to the joy of drinking of one of my fabulous tea blends whilst reading tales from the Regency Era. Please note this infuser comes as an additional purchase option and is not included within the price of the tea tubs. Please scroll down to read the details of the tea infuser.
