Simpson and Vail announces two new additions to their successful literary tea line.

Tuesday, July 4th 2017 @ 9:25 PM

BROOKFIELD, CT – Simpson & Vail is unveiling two new literary (author) teas to their successful line of literary teas.  In addition to the twelve literary teas, Simpson & Vail is excited to offer two new author teas: Frederick Douglass Black Tea Blend & Edith Wharton Black Tea Blend.

The full line of authors are William Shakespeare, Walt Whitman, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Emily Dickinson, James Joyce, Beatrix Potter, Lewis Carroll, Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Louisa May Alcott, Frederick Douglass, and Edith Wharton. Each of these fourteen teas comes in their own specially designed tins branded to each author, their lives and works.

This year’s authors were chosen based on customer requests.  The Frederick Douglass blend honors the man who played a vital role in shaping American history. To commemorate this eloquent and powerful man, a blend was created using teas from different countries that perfectly co-exist to create a taste that is strong and bold.  The Edith Wharton blend pays homage to her descriptions of the undercurrents rippling through fashionable society. It is a smooth and elegant blend comprised of a refined, high-grown Darjeeling black tea with a little passionfruit and citrus flavor, a dash of spice and lovely flower petals.

Simpson and Vail is well known for creating delicious traditional and dessert tea blends with a quirky sense of humor and love of history.

Each tea tin has brief information about the author it represents.  Deeper information on each author is found on the Simpson & Vail website
