If tea is more your thing, indulge in the delicate textures and fresh floral flavours of white tea from Tea Treasure. We recommend their Silver Needle Tea Travel Kit, which comes in a delightful tote bag and comprises a mix of loose leaf tea and tea bags, honey sticks, and a bio-degradable wood pulp tea filter. What’s not to love?
