Purse strings may be tightening this Christmas but many UK shoppers are still not willing to scale back on quality. Christmas is one of those occasions when friends and family can all get together to enjoy a special meal and sample some of life’s little luxuries. It’s certainly not the time to compromise especially where food is concerned.

The Exotic Teapot offers an affordable range of blooming tea gifts to make these rare get-together moments extra special. Originally created as a drink for emperors, blooming teas today are delicately made by local artisans in Fujian Province, China. When steeped in hot water these premium grade teas magically transform into stunning compositions of green tea and flowers like White Jasmine or Orange Osmanthus. They are best enjoyed as a refreshing and healthy alternative to coffee at the end of a meal or dinner party.

Nadia Iliffe, founder of The Exotic Teapot, says “Our delicious blooming teas and clear glass teapots are proving to be very popular gifts this Christmas. Each tea takes about 3 minutes to fully bloom and never fails to surprise and delight people”.

Blooming green teas can be purchased individually in tins or as part of a Discovery or Gourmet tea set. These beautifully packaged gift sets offer several glass cups and a variety of glass teapots to view the blooming teas. According to Nadia Iliffe, “We specially designed our new Shan and Jewel glass teapots ourselves to maximise both aesthetic appeal and durability. They are hand-made by expert glass makers using the thickest and strongest borosilicate glass we could find”.

Each gift set also includes a selection of blooming green teas with exotic sounding names like “Dancing Lovers”, “Jasmine Fairies” or the rather heavenly “Three Moon Pearl”. Prices range from under £16 for a basic Discovery Set to £60 with free shipping for the top end Imperial Set, served in an elegant bamboo box.

The Exotic Teapot is a leading UK specialist brand of luxury tea gifts and hand-tied blooming Chinese tea. The company is based in London and primarily sells its line of products online through the Exotic Teapot website, and other selected retailers.
