The Gift That Steeps On Giving
The holiday season is about sharing time with friends and family. Sometimes it seems as though the days of giving a heartfelt gift with meaning have faded. Far too often, it is easier to just give a gift card or some mass-produced widget. Modern life is busier than ever, so how can you find the perfect gifts for your loved ones, without over-stressing yourself? Well, tea is a perfect way to make your holiday shopping a relaxing and personalized experience this year. Even the pickiest one on your list can delight in the indulgence of a well-crafted tea. At Discover Teas, we have you covered.
For the last several years, I have enjoyed sending my loved ones great loose-leaf teas as well as steeping solutions and toys for tea lovers. A gift of tea is not just something to drink; it is an expression of caring. It is a wish for the people you care about to take a moment, slow down and nurture the self. The rich aroma of a cup of tea can take us back to simpler times; a memory of sitting at Grandma’s table; or it can excite the senses and thrill the soul with an adventure. Whenever I steep a tea I have received as a gift, it reminds me of the strength of my friendships and how well my friends and loved ones know me.
Whether you choose a tea for certain flavor notes, one for its uniqueness, or even one to support a healthy lifestyle, choosing tea for someone you care for doesn’t have to be complicated. Remember, we are here to help! At Discover Teas, we offer several beautiful single-estate teas, as well as many incredible exclusive house blends which we hand-blend right here in our shop. When you give tea, you are also helping to provide health benefits that can improve anyone’s quality of life. Our line of WellTEAing herbal blends, also created right here in-house, is an excellent way to aid in healing of all kinds.
Want to create your own one-of-a-kind gift? You can visit either of our locations to build your own blend for friends and family. We are experts that can guide in the creative process to signify your personality, honor a special memory, or evoke joy in the season. You can even take home a pound of your own custom tea to wrap up and send to everyone as an exclusive signature blend!
So now you know why I say that tea is the gift that steeps on giving! All of us here at Discover Teas are so grateful to have the opportuni-tea to help you with all of your gifting needs. So from us to you, have a wonderful holiday and drink great teas!
