I know you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover but I have to confess that sometimes I try a tea based on the tin or packaging. All-in-All this really doesn’t have any sway on the outcome of what I think of the tea inside but I have to say clever and colorful packaging grabs my eye!
This London Tea from New English Teas did just that. The tin is lovely! It’s a deep red with 3 different faces of authority (for lack of better words) on the sides. They are in full uniform, too. On the 4th side of the tin you can read about the location of the tea company.
This is a standard black tea that I’m sure is what they use for many of their bases but it’s bold and dark and just about everything you look for in a hearty morning tea or afternoon pick-me-up. This could very well please the masses!
And I’m not going to lie…I’m going to keep and prominently display the decorative tin!
