Simpson & Vail introduces a Floral Tea Gift Box in time for Mother’s Day featuring Four Exquisite Floral Loose Leaf Teas

BROOKFIELD, CT March 15, 2024 – Simpson & Vail, a century-old purveyor of premium teas, is delighted to unveil its latest offering: Floral Tea Gift Box, an enchanting gift box curated for tea aficionados seeking a floral experience.

Crafted in small batches, the teas in the Floral Gift box combine the finest loose leaf teas, sourced from around the world, with aromatic floral botanicals and heavenly floral flavors.  Each tea in this collection has been carefully chosen to provide a sensory journey reminiscent of the Spring and Summer seasons.

The Floral Tea gift box includes four unique tea blends:

Floral Nectar - For those lovers of lavender, this tea provides a unique tasting experience. It's lavender all the way, from the delightful floral bouquet to the tantalizing lavender liquor. The addition of sweet, succulent apricot fruit flavoring to this blend produces a cup that is full bodied with a uniquely sweet, floral taste.

Lilac Bouquet - Springtime wouldn't be complete without the intoxicating aroma of lilacs blooming! This tea blend brews to a deep amber cup with a fragrant taste that leaves a delightful flowery aftertaste on the palate.

Spring Blossom - To honor the first bulbs and plants popping up through the recently frozen earth, we have created a Spring Blossom blend. This tea is made with green tea and colorful flowers with the subtle, sweet taste of passion fruit. It's beautiful to behold and lovely to drink!

Violet Rose - We added our delicate, fragrant violet flavor to black Rose Congou to create a deep amber cup with an incomparable bouquet and a flavor that is absolutely heavenly.

"Our Floral Tea gift box is designed to captivate the senses and transport you to a serene garden setting," said Cyndi Harron, co-owner at Simpson & Vail. "Each tea in this collection has been thoughtfully chosen to represent the aromas and tastes of Spring.”

Ideal for gifting, to others or yourself, this Floral Tea box comes in a kraft box with beautifully designed floral graphics.  The packages for each tea feature stunning illustrations of the flowers in each blend.  Whether enjoyed alone or shared with loved ones, this collection of aromatic teas promises to delight the senses and inspire moments of blissful relaxation.

The Floral Tea gift box is available on the Simpson & Vail website starting March 15, 2024. For more information or to place an order, please visit
