Tea Lover Geekgasm: Lewis Carroll

I am totally in love with tea lately. Snuggling in bed with a good book, typing up articles at the office, or just watching the rain bounce off your wooden venetian blinds—they can all get better if you bring in a cup of warm tea into the mix. The magic that is condensed within the small porcelain is now something I think I can't last a day without.

Scouring the Net for some random tea trivia, I stumbled upon this awesome collection inspired by none other than the Mad Hatter’s tea party in Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Literature and tea? I love it when two of my favorite things are mashed up together. Gads, I’d love to have this collection. They're gorgeous enough for display, but my tummy would be more than glad to house them! Haha! :) I mean, come on. I want to know what Mad Hatter Green Tea, Alice Peach Oolong Tea, and White Pear Rabbit Tea taste like! Curiouser and curiouser!




The Die Line says: “Founded in 2010, The Lewis Carroll Tea Collection aims to capture the essence of Lewis Carroll and his work. The brand creates the most delicious blends of whole leaf teas, rough-cut herbs and f lowers. In addition to all the goodness packaged within this box, feel great knowing that the proceeds from the sales go towards encouraging children to do all things creative, with the help and support of Pencils of Promise.
