Bonjour! I’m sipping my morning cuppa Harney & Sons Tower of London Blend while gearing up to reveal my Tea Tetris tea drawer to you. It’s an Earl Grey blend with honey notes which definitely brings out a certain smoothness and luxuriousness to this tea. It’s a dark, rich color and when you add milk it almost looks like a latte.
After my Harney & Sons Paris tea post, I thought it would only be fair to give you a glimpse into the world of my tea Tetris. I have to warn you, when I go all out… I really do! Below is my tea drawer and not everything I own is contained in this drawer. I’m starting to think I need a dedicated pantry just for all these delicious treats. I tinker with this drawer trying to make all the teas fit. It’s like its own form of Tetris or some sort of jigsaw puzzle.
The lovely Jean-Paul Gaultier Kusmi Paris tins that were designed for Anastasia and Prince Vladimir teas. Teapigs: Superfruit, Darjeeling Earl Grey, Silver Tips White Tea, Harney & Sons: Rooibos Chai, Pomegranate Oolong, and Organic Assam, and Kusmi Paris: Organic Darjeeling No 37, and Green Tea with Spearmint.
Teapigs (I got their special try 12 tea sampler kit) and I stuffed most of them into this jar, Mariage Frères: Earl Grey with Silver Tips, Fortnum & Mason: Diamond Jubilee (tulip shaped weck jar), Republic of Tea: Downton Christmas Tea (round weck jar), Stash Tea: Breakfast in Paris, Peppermint, Mango Passionfruit, Twinings: Lady Grey, Stash: Double Bergamot Earl Grey.

If you follow them on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook you will get to see their specials or giveaways and it will give you more of an opportunity to experience a variety of what they each have to offer. It’s worth it. And if you’re anything like me, you’ll share your teas with friends.
