How about infusing a bit of poetry into your day? With Élodie – tea sommelier and founder of Tea Heritage –, wave goodbye to uninspiring, conventional and square teabags!

Hand-sewn tea bags in Lyon

This winter, the specialist in original tea bag designs is releasing a Christmas tree-shaped bag to join the snowman and Bambi, sewed by hand in her Lyon-based workshop. They contain delightful blends like Christmas tea, cinnamon roll-rooibos and frangipane-style ‘Rooibos des Reines’ (queen’s rooibos), available individually or in the brand’s advent calendars and Christmas crackers. What’s more, Tea Heritage, which is distributed at 500 outlets in 36 countries, is on course to achieve its zero-plastic goal this year and now produces its packaging just 50 km from Lyon.

Available until the 11th of December at No Bad Day, on Place des Jacobins, Lyon 69002, and all year round at Nous, the homemade-tea room in Craponne.
