• Kama Sutra Tea: Tales of Love (£12)
Inspired  by  the  romance  in  the  air,  The  East  India  Company’s  tea  master  has  created a  special  blend  for  Valentine’s Day. With delicate rose petals, sweet ripe orange and warming spices, this tea captures the sentiment of the heart, soft whispers and caresses, passion and butterflies.

The  Kama  Sutra  is  one  of  the  world’s  oldest  treatises on pleasure and sensual living and was originally  compiled in the 3rd century by the Indian Sage Vatsyayana. First translated in 1883 by the renowned orientalist  and  author  Sir  Francis  Burton,  it  titillated  and  scandalised  Victorian  Britain.  While  its  risqué  content is most often referenced, it provides a manual of balancing mind, body, and spirit to achieve harmony with one’s partner.

To  add  sparkle  to  your  celebration,  this  stunning  and  evocative  tea  also  comes  complete  with  a  perfect  recipe for romance exclusive to The East India Company – The Kama Sutra Cocktail.

For  those  looking  for  extra  indulgence,  The  East  India  Company  has  also  created  a  stunning  range  of  hampers to suit all styles and tastes on this romantic day.
