Always be ready in case the Queen comes to tea! That is what my mom liked to say, and you can without Victoria Grey! Did you know Earl Grey Is HRH Queen Elizabeth II’s favourite tea?
The perfect pairing literature and tea! Celebrating our first Etsy sale! The purchaser bought my personal fave a lovely Victorian afternoon tea named after one of our most beloved authors Jane Austen.

About

Time Travel in a Cup - Drink a Bit of History.

Sense and SensibiliTea started from humble and dirty roots. It began in a make shift 18th century tea parlor. Having hosted many fully costumed period teas I decided to take the next step, and begin research to make sure the teas I was serving were accurate to the various periods we were playing in.

It began with two simple blends, as a re-enactor I had decided to further the experience for people that came to visit me at museums by representing a tea merchant, a job that women in the 18th century were able to hold.

Over time it went from small reenacting hobby to something much more and ever expanding.

My aim is to recreate as closely from research and description tea blends from various historical time periods. To essentially offer you a small but of time travel in your cup. We want everyone to not only enjoy an excellent cup of tea, but to also learn a little bit of history in the process.

We are also creating tea blends based on great pieces of literature.

Being artistic my husband and I also offer hand painted and decoupaged specialty tea wares.
