The Way of Tea - A tea tasting journey though the history of tea guided by the collection of the Ashmolean Museum.


The Way of Tea is a tea tasting journey created in collaboration between Team Tea and the Ashmolean Museum, University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology. Founded in 1683, the Ashmolean’s world famous collections range from Egyptian mummies to contemporary art, telling human stories across cultures and across time.

The tea set includes six award winning teas, each packaged in our signature slide tin,  and an unbleached cotton tea bag. Each tea is accompanied by a souvenir card leading the drinker from tea’s origins in China and charting its spread across the world via Buddhism, Empire, trade, and espionage. The journey is guided by objects from the Ashmolean’s extensive collection, revealing not just fascinating stories of individual endeavour but also how culture has been influenced by this seemingly humble drink.

An ideal gift, the set features a woodblock print, with bokashi (tonal gradation) by Utagawa Hiroshige I (1797–1858), from the Ashmolean Museum collection.
