It’s that time of the year when we celebrate women and raise a toast to their strength, skills and resilience. The theme for International Women’s Day this year is “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change”, which places innovation by women and girls at the heart of efforts to achieve gender equality. There are many ways to acknowledge and honour the women in your life on this special day, but there is nothing quite as nice as a special gift to show them how much they mean to you. And, one of the best gifts you can give this year is the Tea Chest from the Sublime House of Tea.
The Tea Chest, which is a miniature model of the traditional tea chests of the past, is beautiful in craftsmanship and rich in the variety of teas that are within the box. When you gift a Tea Chest to someone you love, you are also giving them a lifetime of health and happiness as tea has been regarded as the key to well-being for thousands of years. Studies have shown that tea can combat a number of diseases like heart disease and diabetes and also, help in weight loss and improving mental prowess.
The Tea Chest has a lacquered finish and as it is made of fine dark wood, it looks like a work of art. It would look spectacular in any setting. It would find pride of place on your dining table in your home.
The Tea Chest contains an assortment of teas to suit a woman’s every mood. If she is feeling stressed, the gentle fragrance and flavour of Rose in Bloom tea would calm her instantly. For a shot of energy, a cup of Rooibos Vanilla Spice would be perfect, and if one is depressed, the warm scent of Earl Grey is like a tonic for the soul.
Women’s Day was first launched on February 28, 1909 in New York and it was suggested that a Women’s Day should be held annually. But it became a part of our calendar, only after it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations. In some countries, it is a national holiday but across the globe, it is the day marked by conferences, talks and award- functions and a day of recognition of the work done by women. Across offices and homes, women are given a special status for the day and they often receive gifts and tokens of honour as a part of the celebrations.
The flavours of tea in the Tea Chest includes Rooibos Vanilla Spice, Seventh Heaven, Jasmine Mandarin, Moroccan Mint, Earl Grey and Rose in Bloom. Each of these teas has special properties to improve one’s life and get healthy too. Rooibos Vanilla Spice tea has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredients that can protect against many diseases like cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Moroccan Tea, on the other hand, can help in digestion and respiratory problems, while Earl Grey can boost energy and immunity and help in weight loss.
The Rose in Bloom tea contains rose petals, liquorice, fennel and aniseed, all of which blends together to create a lovely aromatic beverage. In the Jasmine Mandarin Tea, jasmine flowers are picked during the early hours of the day and infused with green tea after dark. In the Moroccan Mint tea, green tea leaves are mixed with Moroccan mint while Seventh Heaven tea is an in-house blend of black Nilgiri tea.
The Tea Chest contains six slots and each of the teas come in luxurious pyramid teabags. The beauty of the box offsets the eclectic assortment of tea flavours that are within.
So, this Women’s Day, invest in a Tea Chest and gift it to a friend, a parent or a relative. If you are a woman, buy one for yourself. This wonderful Tea chest can enrich life in more ways than you can imagine.
