Our Latest Friendship Box: Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!
The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the biggest holidays in many Asian countries, second only to the Lunar New Year. Falling on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, it’s a time for homecoming and family reunions. Those who can’t be with family gather together to lament their homesickness, light lanterns, and laud the full moon.
Feasting on rich mooncakes is also part of the tradition, and we believe there’s no better way to do so than with friends and exquisite tea — especially tea handpicked by our guest curator, the Silver Needle Tea Company.
The Way of Tea
Steeped in the art of tea, the Silver Needle Tea Company is a New York City-based tea purveyor offering exclusive single estate teas. Each is hand-selected seasonally and comes straight from plantations throughout Asia.
For our latest Friendship Box, Silver Needle Tea has chosen a lovely and fragrant jasmine to accompany delectable taro and green tea mooncakes on a holiday that pays homage to the full moon, family reunions, and missing home. You’ll also find festive lanterns, a pair of teacups in classic blue and white, and instructions for brewing the perfect cup of tea.
Whether you reunite with family or gather with those who can’t, you can savor warmth and sweetness with our latest Friendship Box.
