Laura’s Christmas candle is made with 100% soya wax and essential oils orange, cedarwood, cinnamon and cloves. The candle comes in 4 handy sizes and will remind you of all the great times spent with loved ones.
3) Mount Fuji Beer by Barneys Beer
This one is the perfect gift for a beer lover in your life. Barneys is a microbrewery located in Summerhall. Mount Fuji is a fragment and aromatic pale ale made in collaboration with us! They used our Jasmine Green Tea to produce a pale ale that packs a herbal and floral punch. It is only available in limited quantities so be quick!
4) Harris G & T set – Isle of Harris Distillers
Our favourite Gin just had to appear in our Christmas Gift Guide. The Isle of Harris Distillers have put together a gift box that includes our Isle of Harris Gin Tea, the gin itself and a unique tea ball. You would win Christmas if you gifted this to your nearest and dearest. The Isle of Harris Gin has been described by Nigella Lawson as “the most delicious gin I have ever ever tasted”. Double the “ever” equals double the delicious. Our Concept Store is a click and collect location for the Isle of Harris Gin (handy).
5) Blooming Marvellous Lip Butter – Lucky Cloud Skincare
The perfect wee stocking filler! Pucker up and enjoy this heavenly lip butter. Notes of vanilla, rose, lemon and strawberry will leave any pair of lips nourished! Lucky cloud used our Blooming Marvellous tea as inspiration to make the lip butter which is packed in small metal tins (which is way better then the plastic most lip butters come in). The lip butter is available in our Concept Store or on Lucky Cloud’s website.
6) Tomatin Triple Pack 3 x 5cl – Tomatin Whisky
We have had a soft spot of Tomatin Whisky ever since they said we could age our tea in their barrels. They describe themselves as the softer side of the highlands and their whisky reflects this. If you have a Whisky lover in your life why not get them a selection to try like Tomatin’s triple pack.
