It’s that time again of the year for: Christmas parties, gifts, card sending and, of course, advent calendars! A dear friend of mine has a birthday conveniently placed closely to advent calendar giving month. So I set out into the world in search of a unique gift that keeps giving all December long…
After searching far and wide I found the perfect one out there in the world. She loves teas, so I decided to invest in an all organic unique tea calendar that I thought would be perfect for her! Rauf teas, having been around since the 1970s, are apparently one of the best in world and internationally acclaimed for their unique blends.
This being Rauf’s first year to have advent tea calendars they wanted to make it special so all the calendars are hand painted. The Rauf teahouse is also a huge supporter of the Martinshof foundation, which offers training and employment to disabled people, which in turn means proceeds from the sale of the teashop calendars, would go to the Martinshof foundation. I was sold and the truth was I wanted it for myself, but I was happy to wrap it up and hand it over on her birthday.
Just to show you how cool all the teas are I will be posting a picture every day in this post of her enjoying her daily tea! So, if you check back each day you will find two new pictures: one of the daily loose tea flavour and one of my friend sipping on her tea…
Stay warm my friends xo
