Cue Justin Timberlake music… “We’re bringing Tea Giving back…”
Ok a little off-key, but what matters is that we are bringing back and kicking off our 25 Days of Tea Giving today – on Giving Tuesday!
If you are a regular TeaLove / Pearl Fine Teas follower, then you may remember the original version of this from 2016 called 25 Days of Tea where we spotlighted and discounted a different tea each day leaving up to Christmas Day. In 2017, we called it Tea Kindness and gave a discount weekly. In 2018, we’re back to tea giving daily with discounts from today until Dec 21st – the last Friday before Christmas.
We hope you will watch us here on the TeaLove Blog, as well as on Social Media (Instagram,Facebook and even Twitter) and keep an eye out on the Pearl Fine Teas Website as well for each day of tea. So without further adieu….
DAY 1: FRANCIS!
Kicking off Day 1 with one of our most recent and beloved tea blending endeavor: The Francis! Tea Blend. Francis caught our attention on Instagram in early summer and we’ve been smitten ever since. The backstory on this micro kitten is heart warming and you can read about it here on the latest feature on The Dodo. He’s also all over our Instagram page.
We created this blend to help raise money for the NoVA Cat Clinic’s Chris Griffey Memorial Feline Foundation which helps special needs and neo-natal kittens. 10% of sales from the Francis! Blend is being donated to their foundation.
About The Francis! Blend: Long whiskery green tea leaves, tiny flowers that open slowly, small bits of crystalized ginger, dried ginger and granulated honey, with a micro-hint of orange citrus created in honor of our favorite micro-kitten! Fresh and bright with a touch of sweetness – with a slight zing from the ginger linger on the palate for a long while… A healthy green tea blend that brings about spontaneous happiness.
• Aroma: Earthy, sweet, floral, ginger
• Liquor (liquid): Light pale yellow
