One of my Christmas gifts from kaptaink this year was tea. But this is no ordinary tea. Part of my enjoyment of consuming tea is the ritual of making it, and this tea delivers.

First, the packaging. Each bag is individually packaged in a pyramid-shaped box, and the boxes are arranged with the points facing the center. Very esthetically pleasing.

Second, the actual bag. It’s made of silk with a leaf poking out of the top, and it’s the most delicate tea bag I’ve ever seen.

Third, the steeping. You put the bag in the water, and it sits at the bottom of your cup with the leaf poking out the top.

And, finally, it’s delicious tea. I’ve tried both the Darjeeling and the Black Currant, and both were amazing. I’m sure the English Breakfast and Earl Grey will be just as good.

The only problem with this tea is that I’m going to run out of it before the end of January, at the rate I’m going!
