Now that the holiday season is over for another year and there’s snow on the ground I can’t think of a better time to nestle in your home and invite your girlfriends over for a tea tasting experience they will hopefully never forget!


Tea sampling kits are available through House Warmings. One of our favorite suppliers is “Sloane Fine Tea Merchants”, www.sloanetea.com.


The Sloane story is about beauty as told through the senses of taste, smell and sight. Sloan’s signature line of teas and tisanes (herbal teas) combine the finest loose leaf teas, exotic ingredients and artisanal techniques. The teas are sourced and blended by certified Tea Sommeliers from around the world!


Why not present your tea on a beautiful tray of your choice and ask your girlfriends to each bring their own tea cup and saucer, each will have a story of it’s own for them to share. When not drinking the tea you can use a vintage inspired tea pot or sugar bowl for other decorative purposes in the home whether on a kitchen shelf, placed in a built-in or as a decorative grouping on a dining room buffet as shown below.
