Delve into the world of tea with The Tea Deck. This set of 50 cards is equipped with nearly everything you need to know about green, black, white, oolong and herbal varieties. Each card is dedicated to a specific tea, and includes information on origin, taste and brewing tips. The deck also has a recipe section on how to make sweets and other treats to go with your tea, pairings included. So whether you’re looking to make something as traditional as Buttermilk Scones with Warm Strawberry Jam, as regal as Buckingham Palace Shortbread, or as ritzy as Fresh Figs with Bacon and Goat Cheese, this deck will show you how.
With its classy design and durable, easy-to-read cards, this deck makes a nifty gift for an avid sipper or just about anyone interested in the brew. The only oddity to this product was its deck format: despite being separate cards, there was also a table of contents included, which compelled us to keep our cards in order. But on the other hand, there’s the option of pulling out your favorite cards for use in the kitchen (they’re liquid resistant) or organizing them in the order you like, because in the end, they all fit nicely in their quaint box anyway. All in all, it’s tea-licious.
