Variety Packs: Steven Smith Teamaker

Tuesday, September 27, 2011 4 No tags Permalink 0

Tuesday morning, down to my last few tea sachets. Loose leaf is ideal, but when you need sachets in a pinch – and who doesn’t, I love the ones from Steven Smith Teamaker. This particular box was purchased from The Tea & Honey Store…though it’s slightly cheaper if you get it direct from Steven Smith Teamaker. A fun variety pack tucked into a sturdy string-tie box, good for the indecisive [waves hands].

Two sachets each of black, green, and herbals teas: Brahmin, Lord Bergamot, Fex, Mao Feng Shui, Meadow and Peppermint Leaves. We always go through the herbals ones first, then green, and save the black teas for last. And then you can save the box! I use it to store other brands of tea bags as well as sugar packets and random knick-knacks.

We’re on our fifth box of this variety pack and counting, Pierre suggests that maybe it’s time to switch things up. We shall see, old habits die hard ;)

This is what the box looks like full – all the pretty, slightly muted colors are indeed fall appropriate. On the stove this morning: boiling sliced ginger and hot water with a slip of Chinese brown sugar. Slide in a Brahmin sachet, brew three minutes, close to perfection!

    Hi Kat! Yeah! I always make sure to keep both types at home. Never know when one or another will come in handy :)Hi Samantha! Aahah, no worries! Me too! At first I thought I was a packaging/box hoarder…but the way you phrased it "box collector," sounds much nice. I might adopt that phrase haha. And I definitely confess to sometimes purchasing things based on packaging alone ohuhu ^_^

    Haha Feel free, i feel it's a much more accurate description as what i would say is a refined art not a horrible habit ;) rriiiight. My mother calls me a packrat for it though so i had to come up with something nicer haha.I know that feeling! Like i know they say that you shouldn't judge on packaging etc but sometimes you just HAVE to have the beautiful ones :) Anyway blabbericious comment over. Have a good weekend xxx
