Where there's tea, there's hope!

Despite the on-going heat wave, sales of our Tea Bag Favours are rising along with the temperature! If you haven’t had the chance to check out one of our best sellers, read on for all the information you will ever need to know!

Inspired by the thought of finding a wedding favour that was special, unique and useful; Joanne was enjoying a warming cup of tea and had her Eureka moment! The Tea Bag Favour was born there and then, originally formed from a scrap piece of card and scored, cut and stuck until it was just perfect. Then came the fun part of finding the beautiful patterned card to create the base, poring over reams of lace, pearls and embellishments for the decoration, and finally, searching through hundreds of famous quotes about tea to adorn the front! Recent themes for the quotes have included English Playwrights/Authors and Alice in Wonderland…. who can forget the infamous Mad Hatter quote of, “ Clean cup, clean cup, move down!”. And for something altogether more sophisticated, how about the Noel Coward quote of “Wouldn’t it be dreadful to live in a country where they didn’t drink tea?!” We couldn’t be more in agreement Noel.

Each favour comes complete with an English Breakfast, Herbal or Fruit tea bag and is encased carefully in a dainty cellophane bag to preserve it. They really are something different to give to your wedding guests and will certainly raise a smile and a nod of agreement around the tables!  We’ve also found they provide perfect presents to pop in to a birthday or get well card as something to really cheer someone up. Postage cost is kept to a minimum as they are light as a feather… recession proof gifts for everyone!

Watch out for some stunning new designs coming up for the summer and don’t forget to ask if you would like them custom made in colour, design or quote for your wedding, party or event!
