At Sloane Fine Tea Merchants, we believe that beauty is in the details, and we strive to make every aspect of our packaging and beautiful and intricate as the tea blends themselves. We put a lot of love and care into our tea tins, and we like to think that you might want to keep them around long after your tea is finished. In the past we’ve used empty tins as pen holders, or storage for tea accessories, but this Martha Stewart idea got us thinking- wouldn’t Sloane tins looks great filled with flowers?
We love the entire Sloane tea collection, but over the years its become quite clear that our customers definitely have a favourite- in fact this particular blend has developed an almost cult-like following! If you haven’t guessed already, it’s our Heavenly Cream, a rich vanilla bergamot Ceylon black tea that seems to enchant every tea lover it touches, and there’s no better way to enjoy it than in a fluffy, indulgent tea latte!
As fun as it can be to get all dressed up and head out for a night on the town New Year’s Eve, we often forget the importance of celebrating the new year on New Year’s Day itself. One of the few moments in an entire year where everything is closed and one can truly relax, New Year’s Day is the perfect opportunity to gather friends and loved ones together to celebrate and make resolutions in style.
There are few things that provide that festive Christmas feeling more than a hot cup of spiced apple cider. Left to brew on the stovetop, this sweet and spicy beverage boasts enough fragrance to fill your entire home with the scent of holiday cheer, and it’s caffeine free, so the entire family can enjoy!
Every family has a collection of favourite holiday recipes that they enjoy together year after year, and one of our favourite festive activities here at Sloane is putting our own tea-infused twist on those beloved classics. Today we’re sharing a very special recipe that originally belonged to the grandmother of one of our staffers- Whipped Shortbread Snowballs!
