Friday, 6 March 2020  |  The Tea Makers of London

Mother's Day is fast approaching, and here at the Tea Makers, we have a list of luxury gift ideas to help you celebrate in style.

At the Tea Makers of London, we know how special mums are and we want yours to feel like a queen at high tea. 

We understand that gifts for your mum is not always straightforward and that is especially the case when you are searching for a unique idea to make this year extra special. 

Our gift guide lists a selection of premium tea and elegant glassware, to help reward your mother with well-deserved luxury. 

How To Plan Your Own Afternoon Tea

There is no better way than celebrating mother's day with an afternoon tea which can be planned at home in your own comfort and space. Here is a selection that no good afternoon tea is complete without, in our professional opinion.

This stunning version of the classic Earl Grey offers a blend of exquisite Ceylon teas, scented with flavours of bergamot oil and blue cornflowers. The citrussy notes of the tea compliment any cake layered with vanilla or chocolate. There's a reason our Earl Grey is our best-selling tea - ask our customers and they'll tell you!

Our traditional English Breakfast tea is a sure choice for your afternoon tea. It imparts a rich and beautifully smooth taste which is a reflection of the Sri Lankan tea gardens the leaves are grown and harvested in. Pair this with a simple rich tea biscuit, crumbly shortbread or a classic golden Hobnob and remember to have plenty on your plate to choose from.

Allow this delicate green tea to stun your mum with its intense floral flavour and graceful qualities. Our Jasmine Dragon Pearls has an elegant champagne hue which looks stunning when served in glass teaware.   Enjoy this fragrant delight with your choice of cucumber, egg, cheese and tomato finger sandwiches.

This exceptional loose leaf tea, made by plucking the most delicate fledgling rose buds, offers a soothing cup of rose goodness. If you are looking for a light refreshing tea to cleanse your sweet-tooth palate, allow our Whole Rosebuds to work her magic.

Our Lemongrass and Ginger tea is a combination of aromatic lemongrass and spicy ginger pieces, mixed with soothing peppermint and liquorice to give that subtle natural sweetness. Enjoy this zesty herbal tea with your cream and scones, loaded with fruity jam or tangy compote! 

The King of fruit teas! Named after the island of Bora Bora, this loose leaf fruit tea is created by combining an array of exquisite fruits to create that intense sweet flavour. Pair this tea with your favourite lemon or blueberry cupcake or fruit crumble for maximum sweetness.

Once you finish your sandwiches and begin to move onto dessert, may we suggest you try our calming Peppermint Leaves tea. Its minty infusion and soothing qualities can help you take a moment to enjoy your savoury delights. Plus it is caffeine free, so you won't feel guilty pouring your mum cup after cup.

Rooibos at an afternoon tea? You heard it here first. This delicious tea is created by combining the finest quality green Rooibos and Honey Bush leaves with an exquisite array of juicy fruits and delicate rose and orange blossoms. Enjoy it as a steaming cup of tea, or if your afternoon tea has that special edge, cold brew it and let us know what you think!

This authentic Indian chai blend offers a slightly malty flavour with an alluring aroma of fresh cardamom and delicate notes of clove, cinnamon and black pepper. Our Masala Chai blend is an exceptionally calming, sweet and spicy chai loose leaf tea, which is best enjoyed with milk to provide an unrivalled taste sensation! We recommend you indulge in this tea once you have eaten all your treats, as it is best enjoyed with a side order of full-tummy relaxation.
