National Tea Day with Oliver Pluff & Co. and Storied Goods

National Tea Day with Oliver Pluff & Co. and Storied Goods

, by Lena Melentijevic

Every April 21 on Queen Elizabeth II's birthday we celebrate National Tea Day. There’s nothing more classically British than afternoon tea, and this occasion is one we celebrate by drinking Oliver Pluff’s Charleston-made tea, paired with Storied Goods’ flavored sugar cubes, and serve alongside our favorite High Tea recipes with a Southern twist


From traditional flavors like English Breakfast and Earl Grey to extravagant Cacao Chai and Cinnamon Orange Spice, Oliver Pluff & Co. offer tin for any afternoon tea craving you might have. 


Consider pairing a warm cup of Cinnamon Orange Spice tea with a couple Cinnamon Vanilla sugar cubes by Storied Goods for your next afternoon tea. The subtle spice and sugar compliment the cinnamon and orange flavors of the tea blend, elevating its spice, and the vanilla flavor of the sugarcube brings the citrusy orange to the surface, underscoring the blend with a cozy finish  in every sip. Pair with one of our High Tea favorites, Almond Apricot Scones


Something like a Cacao Chai blend would better pair with an Orange Cherry sugar cube or two. The sour undertones of both cherry and orange stunningly complement and bring out the sweet bitterness of pure cacao, making this dark, sophisticated tea a bit more whimsical and unexpected. Sticking with the decadent theme, consider making our Chocolate Buttermilk Tea Bread to complete this afternoon tea pairing.
