T2 and Penguin Random House AU announce limited edition gift packs

T2 and Penguin Books Australia have joined forces to honour the perfect paring of tea and books.

Premium tea retailer, T2 Tea has joined forces with Penguin Books Australia to create a limited edition tea and book gift pack collection that harmoniously combines T2’s beloved blends with Penguin Books' timeless stories.

The collaboration unites the world’s most perfect pairing: tea and books. Whether for gifting or personal indulgence, the four genre-curated gift packs offer something special for every tea and literature enthusiast.

The uniqueness of this collection lies in the thoughtful attention to detail. Each pack features a literary genre, including three book-shaped teabag boxes emulating authentic titles. These beloved teas are matched with Penguin's classics with descriptions that beautifully illustrate the connection between each brew and the plot of its accompanying story.

Complementing this tea assortment is a genuine Penguin paperback book with a bespoke T2 cover, plus a matching fine bone china mug designed to correspond with theme.

As the driving force behind this collaboration, T2 Senior Buyer, Sally Morris explains 'combining my two loves, tea and books, in a range of gift packs is a dream.'

'Together with Penguin and our talented in-house designers, we meticulously matched each tale and its characters to iconic T2 teas, leaving no page unturned. The creativity and care we put into this collection is evident in every detail, which we know will be appreciated by tea lovers and bookworms alike.'

Sophie Teague, Senior Business Development Manager at Penguin Books Australia expresses the Penguin team is 'immensely proud to collaborate with T2 Tea in creating these exceptional book and tea gift packs.'

'The simplicity of enjoying a cup of tea while reading a great book is a creature comfort that resonates with so many. We are so excited to share our passion for books with the T2 community.'

From the captivating realms of General Fiction and Romance to the thrilling worlds of Mystery & Thriller, as well as the imaginative frontiers of Sci-Fi & Fantasy, there's a pack bound to captivate the imagination and delight the taste buds.
