With the monsoon season that comes with Christmas, our outdoor time is reduced. For us, this means more afternoon tea sessions. With our collection of beautiful tea sets, we need good teas to match. And because I'm such an aesthetic person, beautiful packaging attracts me like bees to honey (or pollen, strictly speaking). These latest range of Basilur teas not only have very aromatic tea leaves, but very unique and creative designs. In fact, they are so beautiful that I collect them simply because of their packaging.

|Four Seasons Collection ~ One doesn't need four seasons to enjoy the Four Seasons Collection!|
My favourite among the Four Seasons Collection is the Spring Tea. If you're a floral tea person, the aroma of the cherry blossoms will awaken your senses and bring you on a walk in the park where the sakura blooms. Okay, maybe a bit exaggerating, but it's really very nice!
|The Music Concert Collection and the Tea House Collection|
For this festive season, Basilur Tea's Festive Collection is simply enchanting. K loves her Tea Houses, which proudly sit on our mantlepiece (aka the piano).

In place of the bubblies for non-alcoholics, the New Year's Tea with pure Ceylon leaves infused with fruits and herbs is great as a toasting alternative to bring in the New Year with family and friends. Just make sure the tea isn't boiling hot!
|The cosy Knitted Collection|
In this rainy weather, the Knitted Collection makes me feel rather cosy. This 100% pure Ceylon black tea range reminds me of those Christmas knitted jumpers, but more stylish, haha! I like the Indigo one with a mild kiwi fruit taste, very refreshing!
|Tea with Jamie Magazine = Perfect afternoon, heheh...|
|The gorgeous Tea Book Collection!|
Tea Book Collection
Love Story Collection
Oh, this set is simply gorgeous! Even the name is so dreamy. Each volume is designed like a book and contains a resealable bag of loose tea leaves. Very classy and romantic. The tea is mild for the taste, but smells heavenly. This set is available in mini versions, each containing 5 pyramid teabags.

Tea Book Vol. I - V
This has to be my favourite collection of the lot. Each volume has its own distinct flavour and aroma of 100% pure Ceylon tea leaves. Volumes I, II and V are also available in mini versions, each containing 5 pyramid teabags.

|A mini Tea Book, just nice as a little gift this Christmas.|
