Between Will and Kate’s Summer of Love tour and Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” (thanks for making us feel normal, girl), you’re eating up all things English.
Wash it down with Village Tea Company.
Selling loose leaves and individual packets, the local brand is not your mum’s morning cup.
Owner Martin Ekechukwu blends flavors — ranging from vanilla, cherry, and strawberry to lemon ginger, spiced chai, jasmine green, and ginger orange and ginseng — by hand. The packaging is modern (no flimsy boxes here) and made of 100 percent recycled paper. Filter bags are made of unbleached cotton.
Our most anglophilic friends rave about the Royal Organic English Breakfast and Simply Organic Earl Grey black teas.
They promise to put some Pippa in your step.
Available at Whole Foods Market, 4100 Lomo Alto Drive (214-520-7993); Central Market, 5750 East Lovers Lane (214-234-7000); online at villageteaco.com, $3-$16.
