Kirsty and Debbie from Sodbury Chamber member Blue Samovar Teas have been on a tea discovery trip to Sri Lanka.
They've brought back a superb organic Ceylon tea from the beautiful Hethersett tea gardens, where they even tried their hand at some picking.
To try this exclusive tea for yourself, visit their shop in Beaufort Mews (next to Shabby Chic).

The Sodbury Food & Drink Festival will be held on Saturday 12th September this year, with plans for a possible foodie event in the Town Hall on the evening before.
This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever, involving as many food and drink retailers in the town as possible.
We’re looking for people to join the organising group – if you’re interested and can spare a few hours over the next few months, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sodbury Chamber of Commerce was so impressed with the floral displays in Chipping Sodbury this summer that local photographer and Chamber member Rich McDonough was tasked with capturing the local views.
You can now find the Chamber’s 2015 calendar on sale in Sodbury shops such as Penny Farthings, Swagger, Purple Parrot, Card Boutique, Blue Samovar (Beaufort Mews), Koala Kreations (Hatherell’s Yard) and the Post Office as well as the Tourist Information Centre by the clock tower.
Priced at £5, the calendar has been sponsored by many local businesses and this year comes shrink-wrapped with an envelope for posting.
Profits from the sale go into Chamber of Commerce funds and will be used to further its work helping Chipping Sodbury to be a thriving town and sought after business location.
The calendar includes local event dates such as the Farmers Markets, Vintage and Handmade Fairs and the twice yearly Mop Fairs.
Sodbury Chamber of Commerce Joint Chairman Kate Richardson, of Sodbury based IT training company Your Impact, says: "The Chamber is very pleased to show our appreciation of the hard work of the Sodbury In Bloom team, and to celebrate their success this year by having a floral theme to the calendar. The new calendars have been well received and Chamber member Rich McD has captured some wonderful views of the town."
