For Holiday Season 2016, high-end tea company Newby Teas of London presents an elegant advent calendar for tea connoisseurs: Discover 24 luxurious flavours with the Newby Classic Tea Bag Collection.

The three dimensional advent calendar has a “dolls house” frontage, an attractive black and white illustration of N. Sethia House – the Newby global headquarters in London’s design quarter Clerkenwell – a five-story building on the corner of St John Street, near Smithfield Market, which has become a landmark of the vibrant area. Festive silhouettes stand in the windows.

The doors open out to reveal 24 drawers, each with a sophisticated silk handle, and containing four individual sachets of hand-picked luxury Newby tea.

From the first day of December, the calendar takes you on a journey through Newby’s Classic Tea Bag Collection.  Each day brings a new flavour experience to tea lovers, perfect for enjoying the holiday season with friends and family.

Nirmal Sethia, philanthropist, founder of Newby Teas, and owner of the world’s largest private tea accessories collection, said, ‘This advent calendar is designed to bring the exquisite flavours of Newby Tea to your home in twenty-four scintillating episodes.  Advent calendars are an integral part of the build-up to the national holiday, building the anticipation with small, often delicious, surprises.

‘At the heart of everything we do is our commitment to promoting tea culture and to making the world a better place by helping others,’ he continued.

Newby Teas is substantially owned by a charitable foundation – which funds, among other causes, the training of surgeons in advanced surgery techniques and autism research – adding to the Christmas spirit of these gifts.

Each advent calendar tea has been selected by Newby’s world-leading tea experts.  Newby Teas is the world’s most awarded tea company (recent wins include one at the prestigious North American Tea Championships) and this is an opportunity to taste a wide range of the world’s finest teas.
