March is a month with several dates in the calendar to celebrate the wonderful women in our lives: International Women’s Day is coming up first on 8 th March, followed by Mother’s Day, or Mothering Sunday, on 26 th March. Here’s some gift inspiration for your golden gals.

Lucky charms

Spread the positivity:  The Mindful Company has beautiful friendship bracelet-style bands with a variety of upbeat and mindful messages engraved on either silver or gold hardware. Choose from such positive vibes as “Believe”, “Breathe”, “Gentleness”, “Gratitude”, “Heart” or “Hope” – or the assertive “Filter” and “Grit”.

Pandora’s Box:  Pandora has beautiful jewellery to suit every taste, as well as meaningful charms to add to their famous charm bracelets.

Join the club: You’re bound to find a charm that means something special to the fabulous women in your life at the Thomas Sabo Charm Club.

Time for tea?

Afternoon tea treats: Check out www.afternoontea.co.uk for afternoon tea inspiration across the UK – there are reviews, special offers, and you can even book online.

Say it with Chateau Rouge tea: Chateau Rouge has a selection of the finest loose leaf teas, with all the usual favourites: Earl Grey, a luxurious breakfast blend, Darjeeling, and some fine Chinese green teas. But why not buy something a bit different as a gift to celebrate the unique ladies you know, like the Butterfly Lovers - organic green tea blend.

Have your own Mad Hatter’s Tea Party: For a hand painted, Alice in Wonderland-themed teapots, teacups and glasses, visit Toasted Glass - you can also pick your own design, or select from one of their best-selling ranges, such as Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, or Star Wars. Truly unique and individual, just like the women we know and love.

The gift of tea: What about the gift of a tea experience – for a great cause? National Tea Day is on 21 st April and tickets are just £5, and 100% of the ticket price goes as a donation to the National Tea Day Charity Partners. One of this year’s partners is The Sick Children’s Trust Big Chocolate Tea campaign, running throughout April 2016. Find out more at  National Tea Day 2017 and  Sick Childrens Trust Tea.

For the coffee lovers

Barista quality coffee: We recommend Chateau Rouge Barista Blend coffee, of course. A smooth, sultry blend of 100% Arabica coffee beans, the coffee is a mix of six single-origin coffee beans from estates in Central America, Brazil, India and Ethiopia. The coffee is slow roasted and blended by a fifth-generation Italian family business, ensuring a suitably Italian coffee brew that makes the ideal espresso.

Fancy a pot of coffee?  Really good coffee needs a really good coffee maker. Why not by a beautifully designercafetière to accompany your gift of top-notch coffee? Here’s our pick of the best and brightest:

  • We love the simplicity of this white, stoneware Le Creuset cafetière.
  • This copper, stove-topcafetière from La Cafetière would look stylish in any home.
  • This Dualit cafetière is shiny and stylish, with a double-filtration system.

A weekend away from it all…

For a taste of real luxury, without breaking the bank, check out these fabulous sites, full of super weekend breaks:

Doris & Dicky: Doris and Dicky offers luxury, boutique hotels at budget prices. Check out their March offers at dorisanddicky.com

Hand Picked Hotels: Hand Picked Hotels are running a Mother and Daughter spa day promotion from £74 per person – visit  handpickedhotels.com for these and other special offers at some stunning locations across the UK.

We’re looking forward to celebrating all the wonderful women of the world on 7 th March, and doing something special for the wonderful women in our own lives (our Moms!) on 26 th March.

History of Iced Tea and How to make the perfect iced tea from scratch

July 10, 2017

Most tea historians, rightly or wrongly, attribute the “invention” of ice tea to the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis when iced tea was popularised and commercialised. The summer of 1904 was a particularly hot one and drove many fair goers to shun hot drinks in favour of colder drinks, including ice tea. But was ice tea only “invented” in the early twentieth century?
