My tea themed Easter basket would have a multitude of wonderful items. First of all: tea! I'd have some wonderful teas gathered from Happy Earth Tea, perhaps some Himalayan Imperial Black or a Temple of Heaven! and since it's a holy day, I should get my favorite Holy Ginger, which I always keep on hand! In addition I might create a special blend from Design a Tea (perhaps a passion fruit mango green or a chocolate hazelnut black) or add something from Eastern Shore Tea Company, (my favorite is Black Raven, but maybe I'd try something new like Blackberry Summer Tea or Burgundy Cherry-which is made from a Keemun tea.).
Next I'd like to add a cup or mug. A fancy tea cup, or a cup with an infuser already attached, or a tea for one set!
I'd add a tea accessory, perhaps a useful teaspoon, a tea pet, or a fun infuser!
What would Easter be without candy! Hedonist Artisan Chocolates have absolutely amazing goodies and their Spring 2016 truffle collection is tea inspired: Milk Chocolate Chai, Earl Grey Caramel, Jasmine, Green Tea, and, my favorite (of course) Lapsang Souchong!
There has to be a book or two, perhaps a nonfiction book about tea and a tea mystery. I need to add Tea with Milk and Murder by H.Y. Hanna to my basket. You could add any of her Oxford Tearoom Mysteries, or Laura Childs Tea Shop Mysteries, a Teapot Collector Mystery from Amanda Cooper, or...
Why not get creative and add a coloring book. They're all the rage and for good reason. I love to color! Did you know there are coloring books devoted to tea?
I love home fragrance products! In fact I'm an independent consultant with Pink Zebra! Our main product are Sprinkles a soy/paraffin wax blend you melt to fragrance your home. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the March scent of the month was Sweet Tea!!! I'd add a jar of Sweet Tea Sprinkles as well as our Pomegranate Tea Sprinkles to my basket! You can also combine our Sprinkles to create your own personalized scents too-I have recipes to make Raspberry Tea and Chai Tea Latte!
Finally I'd add a fun tea themed goodie. Perhaps a bracelet, like this one from wileywolverine. Or maybe a pair of socks or a tea-shirt, er t-shirt.
Wouldn't this be the perfect Easter basket?! Heck, I'd be happy with one item from it. Whether you get an Easter basket or not, I hope you have a joyous day!
