Assorted Teas Packaged As a Singapore Travel Memento

I was happy to receive an assorted tea gift set from a friend for Christmas. It's a travel-themed tea set from "The 1872 Clipper Tea Co." The packaging is rather unique, resembling the shape and form of a travel journal, complete with an elastic strap to hold the pages together. It conveniently fits a hand grip the same way you'd hold a travel guide.

Opening the box reveals 16 individually packaged assorted tea bags. There's English breakfast, earl grey, lychee, peach, mango,  passion fruit, green tea, and garden tea and the box contains two of each flavor.  The assortment of pure Ceylon tea and pure Ceylon tea blended with herbs are packed in Sri Lanka.

Among the selection of teas, I wasn't familiar with garden tea. The tea is described as a delicate tea created by mixing pure Ceylon tea leaves with natural rose petals. It's an ideal evening tea accentuated by a smooth floral sweetness.

The box is definitely reusable. It's a perfect fit for refilling with tea. 

The back cover reserves space to write notes, giving the feel of maintaining a journal. During these times where travel has been severely impacted, this is a nice, simple touch of remembering the feeling of traveling. In this case, it's a travel experience to different flavorful destinations in the form of tea.

I'll be traveling to each tea destination soon.
