Tea Faeries, that is.
On Tuesday it seems one visited us by way of the afternoon post which contained...
...this charming collection of goodies including a cheerful greeting card with a fabulously sassy quote, warm wishes from a stellar tea comrade hailing from Texas (by way of the U.K.), and two exquisite tea bags.
Exquisite...really? YES! First of all just look at the tea bag. How often do you come across hand-sewn, organic cotton bags in your tea box? If you are like us, not too often. However, what was really exquisite was the tea inside the bag. This fragrant, full-leaf tea is graded as, Super Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. Note the SFTGFOP on the packaging. In the tea world those letters are jokingly said to mean, So Far Too Good For Ordinary People. It's rare, expensive, and very limited and we've always wanted to try just a cup of it. Are you starting to believe us now? This tea was exquisite and enjoyed to the last drop.
The unassuming blue envelope came as such a beguiling surprise to us, we now unanimously agree... we believe in Faeries! Thank you, Lindsey!
