Enjoy A Cuppa Tea Based on Your Zodiac Sign

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Every Zodiac sign has its own strengths and weaknesses, its own specific traits, desires and attitude towards life and people, carrying specific energies. Just like every star sign and its own traits, Newby Teas' Zodiac Collection is here to celebrate the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival as we enjoy the delectable mooncakes with their tea pairings under the beautiful night sky with our loved ones.

Newby is the most awarded international brand in high-end luxury tea, they are committed to the preservation not only of the character of tea itself, but also its history and culture, with quality as their number one priority.

Using just the leaves of a single estate means standards can vary from year to year. That’s why only the finest leaves from a variety of tea gardens, picked at their most prime season, are selected. Expert tasters sample thousands of harvests, with their recommendations sent to founder and tea specialist, Mr Sethia. Only after he has personally tasted and approved each tea will it be ready to bear the Newby name.

For the Zodiac collection, they have chosen a variety of luxury tea to reflect the personality of each celestial constellation. Each adorned its midnight-blue caddy with Swarovski® crystal elements for a touch of luxe. Not only are the collectible tins perfect for gift-giving, they are also lovely to add to your cabinet display. Check out how pretty the Virgo one is!

Within, you will find 25g of the special tea leaves that will suit your Zodiac sign. Each packed in an aluminum bag, all you need is cut a little hole and pour out the amount needed, when done, roll the bag up and have it stored back in the airtight tin.

For Virgos, we have the Gunpowder tea. It might sound very strong, but it's actually the slight smoky aftertaste that gives its name. It's a light, fragrant taste of finest green tea leaves rolled in the Chinese tradition that makes it a nice pairing with sweet desserts or even a round of Dim Sum. Below are the list of teas for the other Zodiacs.

Aquarius - Darjeeling

A much-celebrated Indian tea, refreshing and invigorating with muscatel notes. India’s steep Himalayan foothills are home to probably the world's most celebrated black tea. The cool, rainy climate shapes the florally aromatic character of Newby’s Darjeeling blend.

Pisces - Green Sencha

Subtly fragant green tea with a note of rice and a pleasing freshness. Carefully plucked in early spring, the young leaves in this green tea have been steamed in traditional Japanese style, preserving their dark green colour and delicate, slightly rice-like taste.

Aries - African Blend

An exclusive blend of the finest African black teas. The bright copper cup has a spicy aroma, and the taste is rich and earthy with a slightly astringent finish.

Taurus - English Breakfast

The Great British classic, full-bodied, smooth and malty with notes of citrus. A classic British tradition once enjoyed by Queen Victoria, English Breakfast remains enduringly popular. An unmistakably malty flavour and citrus tinge add an edge to Newby’s robust blend.

Gemini - Indian Breakfast

A light, refreshing blend of fine black teas from Assam and the Himalayas. While still one of the darker teas, this breakfast blend is lighter than English Breakfast, with a muscatel fragrance.The taste is malty and light, with a refreshing finish.

Cancer - Fujian Oolong

Fujian Oolong’s cup is light-yellow / amber, and has a fascinating orchid aroma.The taste is balanced, if complex; fruity, spicy, and with a sweet finish.

Leo - Assam

A full-bodied, malty black tea from northern India. The region’s reliably warm climate and summer monsoon rains are conducive to producing strong, malty teas such as Newby’s Assam, a classic blend particularly fortifying at breakfast.

Libra - Earl Grey

A fragrant and balanced black tea with a citrus aroma and sweet bergamot hints. A British tradition enjoyed all over the world, Newby’s Earl Grey is characterised by the subtle taste of bergamot, its smooth finish and appealing citrus fragrance.

Scorpio - Jasmine

A smooth and delicate tea infused with a sweet jasmine aroma. Green tea leaves absorb the scent of richly fragrant night-flowering jasmine, lending an unmistakably floral note to Newby’s smooth and delicate Jasmine Blossom.

Sagittarius - Ceylon

A bright, full-bodied black tea with an invigorating light citrus note. Sri Lanka’s mountain monsoons create the character of Newby’s distinctive Ceylon blend, noted for its refreshing taste and subtle citrus aroma.

Capricorn - Himalaya

The Himalayas’ masterpiece, a majestic and memorable black tea. While still one of the darker teas, this breakfast blend is lighter than English Breakfast, with a muscatel fragrance.The taste is malty and light, with a refreshing finish.

This range of tea is lighter in taste, which will pair good with the mooncakes during the Mooncake Festival. I like that it will make good gifts together with the mooncake deliveries for your friends, families and even business clients.

Each Zodiac caddy retails at a special price of $35 (usual price at S$44), only at TANGS Orchard. The entire zodiac collection gift set that comes in a beautiful black box retails online at S$541.30.

Other than the Zodiac Collection, Newby Teas also offer other ranges of tea in teabags other than loose tea leaves with pretty packaging too. I like that the teabags and even the string is made with potato starch instead of the usual nylon, to prevent any toxic exchange.

Newby Teas are all available for purchase at their pop up booth at TANGS Orchard from 18th September to 1st October 2017. There are a few promotions, do check them out. If not, you can also head over to their e-boutique at www.newbyteas.sg to make your online purchases.
