Let’s be honest – wedding favours are just as important as your entire wedding setting. It is the first impression and also the lasting impression for your guests and you should not neglect this detail. We all fail to remember that sometimes, these little gifts are a gesture of appreciation for our guests and it is only right if we lived up to its namesake and treated it as it is – a favour.

Compared to coffee, tea is a widely accepted beverage that everyone at some point will drink. From classic Earl Grey to Japanese Sencha, tea comes in so many flavours that you are bound to strike an interest. Not only is it an elegant gift but a useful and memorable one, too. Some notable brands that have great tea are my personal favourites Harney & Sons, Basillur Tea and TWG.
