Fancy a cuppa? Ashley from Scotland does:
There’s been something I’ve been trying to find out for a decent amount of weeks now but I can’t find what I want.
Over the past few months I have been subscribed to Graze, a website you can paid £3 odd for a box of 4 healthy snacks and have them delivered to your home. One of the snacks I last got included a teabag (not just a plain PG Tips teabag, it was flavoured), and it got me thinking.
Answer me this, is there not just a website somewhere like Graze that you can only order tea bags? Like you choose which different types of tea you want to try and they give you ones of each.
Readers, do you know of any such companies? Advise Ashley in the comments.
From what I’ve found, you could build your own tea pick’n’mix from Chinalife or Olly’s favourite Teapigs, or buy yourself a selection box from somewhere like Post Tea or Fortnum and Mason. My brother got me a tea advent calendar from Imperial Teas of Lincoln, which was a delightful means of trying twenty-five different teas.
But all of those are a rather expensive way of getting a cuppa. It would be more economical to buy yourself several boxes of different types of teabag, removing them from the packaging and mixing them all together in a big box, then grabbing a handful, shoving it into a fancy envelope and posting it to yourself every week.
Of course, this approach would lack some of the serendipity and surprise you associate with Graze, so write your postcode with a minor mistake on the envelope and send it second class, so you’re thrilled when it finally turns up.
Alternatively, buy a fairground grabber and fill it with assorted teabags. Then every time you want a cup of tea, you have to play the grabber game.
You’ll die of thirstFUN!
