It is always a happy day when our Holiday order of Mariage Frères tea lands in Seattle from Paris. I get updates along the way once it is picked up at the warehouse, what flight it is on, once it has landed, when it has cleared customs, and finally when it will be delivered to the shop. Kind of like waiting on the arrival of an old friend coming to visit.
Once it is delivered, it is a half days work by a group of us unpacking, pricing, stocking, back stocking and then displaying all that glorious tea. Sort of a ‘whistle while you work’ mode as we are all so happy it has arrived safe & sound. This year we are excited to offer the full range of NOEL teas. Perfectly timed for the Holiday Kick-off Open House this Saturday. The beautifully deeply hued boxes and tins a very stylishly French gift to give this season. Add to that our ever growing grouping of honey and various tea-centric goods and the display is once again nice and full waiting to be enjoyed by all our Mariage Frères loving fans.
