It's impossible to step inside TranquiliTea without making a purchase. Mary Ann was the pleasant and helpful sales assistant while I was shopping.
The shop [located in Plymouth, MI] carries a large selection of teas from Harney & Sons as well as The Republic of Tea - including their Downton Abbey line.
My shopping bag was full of purchases.
Will & Kate Jeweled Silver Plated Teaspoons
A Queen Silhouette Cookie Cutter
~ Tea-themed Note Cards by Lissom Design ~
~ Tea-themed Christmas Gift Tags by Carol's Rose Garden ~
~ Tea-themed Christmas Paper Napkins ~
And three tins of The Republic of Tea's Downton Abbey Teas: Downton Christmas Tea, black tea with mulling spices; Lady Cora's Evening Tea, caffeine-free blend of chamomile and lemon balm; and Mrs. Patmore's Pudding Tea, black tea with caramel and vanilla.
I'm sipping the Christmas Teas as I type this post. When I lifted the lid a wonderful orange, citrusy aroma wafted out of the container. The citrus taste is not overpowering, but delightfully subtle and mild.
In case you're wondering, the Christmas teacup doesn't have a pattern name. The manufacturer's trademark is Bluebird, and it's made in Canada.
