Simpson & Vail is unveiling a new line of tea tins that we’ve been working on for months.
The Literary Tea Line is a collection of blends that were created with a specific author in mind. The teas vary from a black tea blend to a flavored herbal blend and each is inspired by the authors’ works and lives. The Literary Tea Line is inspired by William Shakespeare, Walt Whitman, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Emily Dickinson, James Joyce, Beatrix Potter, Lewis Carroll, and Charles Dickens.
A warm mug of tea and a good book go together like, well, a warm cup of tea and a good book. Keep warm in any armchair with occasional sips of tea while letting the words of brilliant writers wash over you. The authors we’ve chosen to represent with this line are some of the all-time greats and they’ve written many of the canonical classics that occupy prestigious positions on bookshelves. Every effort has gone into making these blends as delicious as possible while still maintaining a tight connection to the author they’re meant to represent. We didn’t want to sacrifice flavor for authenticity or authenticity for flavor, so each blend was tweaked and fine-tuned until we found something that incorporated the author’s works and lifestyle while still tasting so good we’d want to drink it. We’re thrilled with the results and excited to add these teas to our offerings.
This collection of ten tea tins aims to complement any library or literary-minded person. We’re excited to share these blends with you and we hope you’ll enjoy drinking them as much as we’ve enjoyed making them.
