There's Always Time for Tea

The idea of "tea time" is a luxurious concept, but it needn't take an hour or be accompanied by a fox hunt. Treat yourself to a daily dose of antiquity with this literary set of 25 teabags. Each English Breakfast teabag is individually tagged with beloved quotes from your favorite authors. You may not have time for cucumber sandwiches, but you can certainly bring CS Lewis into the boardroom. Tea is grown and packed in Sri Lanka.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

        It was a gift. The little novelty sayings on tea bag made a hit. Wish the teabags were in something that you could keep.

              I got this for my mother, a former librarian, for Mother's Day. She loved the gift! She said she's saving all of the quotes from the tea bags and plans to design a scrapbook page with them. I'd highly recommend this gift for book lovers.

                      I gave this as a gift for someones birthday. She loved that it had literary quotes. My only concern is the back of the product says "Bag lady". I know they mean tea bags but when she opened it to see this saying it came across as calling her an old bag for her birthday. It's only on one side, so I had a 50/50 chance as to which side she would see first. Anyway once she flipped it over she loved it.
