Tea brands have introduced luxury tea boxes and gorgeous crockery for festive gifting this season

Almost every brand is offering luxury tea boxes or hampers for gifting, with a clear focus on wellness and well-being. Here’s a selection to sip on.

CELES TE

This Delhi-based brand, born during the pandemic, has been launched by Anubha Jhawar, daughter of a tea master. Trained as a tea sommelier and blender, she offers a range of blends made with teas sourced from across India. The brand also offers tea in “brew pockets”, loose-leaf tea in bags made from natural material. The Grey Gift Box is a customisable gift of two teas, with the option of a handwritten note to go with it. Other gift boxes come with a mix of teas and accessories and can be customised. The curation of the gift boxes named Love, Zest and Serenity keeps in mind the feelings they are supposed to evoke. For example, the Serenity box has three teas that induce a sense of calm and well-being: Gold Rush, chamomile-based green tea, Mind Body Soul, detox tea, and Free Spirit, a white tea blend with lavender and mint. The box is a brew kit in itself, all you need is a cup and hot water. The handmade brass tea basket strainer can be used for both a cup and a teapot. Its double handles rest gently on the rim and can be used to brew or strain loose-leaf tea.
