New Arrival: Tea Thoughts
Hello from our first blog entry on this beautiful day of June 2022!!! Sometimes we have more to say about a new small business or ideas and recipes, so we thought it would be more convenient to write up blog posts instead of cluttering our periodic newsletters! It is very suitable that our first blog entry would feature a wonderful small business, tea-themed of course!
I am so pleased to announce the latest line of products we have introduced in our gift shop – Tea Thoughts by blogger and designer Nazanin Yousefnejad. I have been a fan of her work for a while now, following along as Nazanin tries different teas, reflects on many aspects of teaware, and spotlights various businesses and creators in the great tea community. I am very excited to share her unique designs with you all.
Based in New York, the Tea Thoughts brand consists of both a blog and a shop of original tea-themed products that you are sure to love. Tea is a ritual for sharing time with friends, family, and strangers all around the world. Hailing from an Iranian household, Nazanin understands the importance of tea and the way in which the ritual of tea drinking builds connections. The products evolved from the designer's original drawings, photographs, experiences and symbols that hold special meanings in her life.
Here are some featured products that would make wonderful gifts for loved ones, for teachers and school staff, co-workers, simply to treat yourself!
This enamel camper mug is lightweight and perfect to use while relaxing at home, out on a picnic or camping. The mug features a tea leaf and Osmanthus flower design and has a bright yellow rim. We also offer Osmanthus Petals in our herbal infusion section –this delicate fruity flower would pair wonderfully with this beautiful mug.
This pin perfectly captures the beauty of the Gaiwan, adorned with intricate floral detailing.
