At a T.J. Maxx in Anniston, Ala. over the weekend, I came across what I believe is the prettiest tea tin I've ever seen!
This tin of English Breakfast tea is from the English Tea Shop. The soft pink coloring and the lush roses on the tin are just my speed. Even my husband said it looked like Rachel Ashwell herself could have designed it! (A little scary how much my man knows about tea and my favorite designers these days!)
When I opened it, I was pleasantly surprised to find the tin with an inner lid to keep the tea fresh. Nice!
I enjoyed one of the rare cups of hot tea I've prepared lately, and the English Breakfast blend, brewed for just about 4 minutes, had a pleasant black tea flavor with no astringency, just as I had hoped. But frankly, if the tea had been terrible I still would have loved this tin! (Also comes in blue. Sells for $5.99. Just in case you feel a T.J. Maxx shopping trip coming on ...)
