Simpson & Vail is unveiling a new line of tea tins that they have quietly been working on for many months. Each blend was created with a specific author in mind. The ten different teas vary from a black tea blend to a flavored herbal blend.

The specific authors are William Shakespeare, Walt Whitman, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Emily Dickinson, James Joyce, Beatrix Potter, Lewis Carroll, and Charles Dickens. Each of these ten teas comes in their own specially designed tins branded to each author, their lives and works.

These authors are some of the all-time greats who have written many of the canonical classics that occupy prestigious positions on bookshelves everywhere.

“We really wanted to create something special for the literary minded person, libraries and book stores,” said Connor Lofink who helped create this blend with Cyndi Harron (co-owner of Simpson & Vail). “A warm mug of tea and a good book go together like, well, a warm cup of tea and a good book.”

Simpson & Vail is well known for creating delicious traditional and dessert tea blends with a quirky sense of humor and love of history.

There is a literary tea for everyone in this collection. The delicate prose of Jane Austen’s novels is evoked in a tea blend that combines peppermint with a gentle touch of vanilla. The adventures of Pip and Oliver go wonderfully with a hearty, well-rounded variation on the typical British tea of Dickens’ time.

Each tea tin has brief information about the author it represents. Deeper information on each author is found on the Simpson & Vail website
