Sherlock Holmes Tea Gift Set From Victoria Mae Designs.

If you know me well you'll know I love tea; it's something of an obsession in my family so when I was asked to review a set from Victoria Mae Designs I could hardly wait! I chose the Sherlock Holmes Tea Gift Set which comes in two different sizes; the small contains 8 teabags (£7.50), the medium contains 16 teabags (£15) and the large contains 24 teabags (£22.50).

Victoria is a South African designer-maker now based in the UK, and you may have seen her products in Country Living, Design Week, Elle and many more. All teabags are handmade with white paper and white cotton and you can choose from three packaging options; a card box or a small paper gift bag or loose envelopes wrapped in tissue paper. 

When my package arrived I was so excited to see what was inside. I adore Sherlock Holmes and his quotes are quick-witted, clever and sharp; which means with every cup of tea comes a little giggle or a reflection upon my current situation. These teabags certainly make you think!

I opened up the package to discover a selection of gorgeous teabags and a lovely little brown bag to store them in. The whole package feels very luxurious, both serving as a gorgeous and unique gift but also perfect for tea lovers...

Each teabag pouch has a very well placed quote, including one of favourites-

 'There are always some lunatics about. It would be a dull world without them.'
The pouches are perfectly printed in various fonts with complimentary backgrounds, and they just look too good to use! But of course I had to sample the tea, right? I tried out the peppermint and I have to say, it was bloomin' delicious!

I love everything about this set; it's inspiring, gorgeously artistic and just so much fun to use. I have already decided that even after using them all I'm going to keep the packaging and do something (anything!) crafty with them! 

I love how each one has a different design and quote, as well as a mixture of flavours within the set. You don't find out the flavour until you open it up, but this set has a selection from British tea companies and includes the following: English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Camomile, Rooibos, Indian Spice Chai, Mint (spearmint), Jasmine Green Tea and Honeybush.

Obviously if Holmes isn't your cup of tea (excuse the pun and how can you not like Sherlock?!) then there are lots of other beautiful themes available such as The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland and a super cute Dog Lovers Tea Set

I love Victoria's take on traditional tea drinking, but more than that I adore her design and how she has created such unique gifts for tea lovers all around to enjoy. 

Disclosure: I received a set in exchange for review. All opinions are 100% honest and my own.
