The Art of Tea
Who knew a cup of tea could be so stylish and so innovative? Turn a simple cup of tea into a celebration! Tea Forté’s blends are enclosed in pyramid-shaped silk infusers, each topped with a uniquely designed handwrapped wire and “leaf,” which functions as an elegant handle. Hot water flows easily through the woven silk infusers, allowing the tea leaves to unfurl and swim around as they steep. The flowers inside the stand-up infuser actually bloom after brewing and enhance the visual experience. Tea Forte claims to use only exquisite whole-leaf teas and rough cut herbs from the finest tea-producing regions. Also a great idea for a hostess gift.
