If you could give someone the best morning, what could that be? Well, we’ve been working hard to answer that question and believe we have found a gift that would go a long way to help. Taking some time to simply enjoy a great cup of tea, taste some amazing chocolate whilst enjoying the uplifting fresh cut flower scents, from a gently burning candle, provides a tranquil experience The Best Morning gift can create. So how did we get here?
If we break it down a little, let’s take a ‘great cup of tea’. In 2019, Jenier were approached by the Balmoral Estate in Ballater, home to Balmoral Castle, to create a new black tea blend that was not only a superb tasting tea, but also recognised the various links tea has with Scotland – a new Scottish Tea Blend. So inspired by historic tea pioneers Robert Bruce, James Taylor and Robert Fortune, after many months of work, a blend was created. Using teas from six estates across three growing regions, this blend is a balance of robust teas from Assam, high grown leaves from Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka and a gentle presence of Keemun leaf from Anhui, China. This blend is now served to visitors at Balmoral and sold throughout the Visitor enterprises on the estate. We’re delighted Balmoral gave us permission to use and sell this blend too and so when thinking of The Best Morning cup of tea, we couldn’t think of any blend better – so this blend is our Best Breakfast which we would say is definitely one ‘great cup of tea’.
For our ‘amazing chocolate’ we had to reach out to the professionals of course and COCO of Edinburgh chocolatiers are definitely that. Sample after sample we tasted (it was hard :)!!) until we found the perfect match – Isle of Skye Sea Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate. There was no doubt – one word described the taste pairing with the tea, ‘amazing’!
The scented candle had to be totally natural and who better to approach for 100% soya wax natural candles than the Isle of Skye Candle Company? We knew the scent hadn’t to be too overpowering, but still have enough power to give off scent that would help to create a relaxed, uplifting ambience. The result? Our beautiful ‘Thinking Of You’ handmade soya wax candle which is delicately fragranced with notes of rose, mandarin & bergamot.
Add all the above together and we believe you have a gift that really could give someone The Best Morning!
