This luxury tea and coffee gift hamper crate is handmade by a local craftsman here in Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland and filled with a selection of great local produce.
Starting with tea, there is great black tea, Bari Breakfast, from the fabulous Northumberland Tea Brewery located in Alnwick's Castle Quarter. For coffee, we have included Berwick's Northern Edge Coffee's "Jimmy Strength". "Jimmy Strength" coffee is roasted just across the River Tweed in Spittal and named after the legendly strong man from Berwick-upon-Tweed. As expected from the name, this is a strong coffee, from the Rainforest Alliance Certified Brazil Fazenta Pantano - 1150 metres altitude. For enjoying tea and coffee in fine bone china, we have included a "Fog on the Tyne" mug from a river south of the Tweed!
We have also included a box of red and gold foil wrapped chocolate hearts and a bag of hand dipped chocolate marshmallows, both handmade in small quantities by artisan Kiki's Chocolates of Coldingham.
Finally, for washing up after your treats, there is a beautiful Jones and Jones of Berwick-upon-Tweed "Fine Tea and Artisan Coffee" tea towel.
