For all the tea lovers and those endless tea breaks.
Oh dear, do we love tea. Here at The Grumpy Olive HQ we certainly do. So much that we have a full cupboard of it. Not only that, but we also all meet regularly in the kitchen at around 3pm in the house for a tea break. Such a soothing thing to have and do.
Tea has sort of been overlooked in the industry, with a lot of bad brews happening. But don’t worry, we got you sorted. We have compiled a list of the best tea gifts you can get – or ask for- this Christmas, all for making better tea at home.
So, without further ado, let’s talk tea.
