To celebrate the launch of their new and improved Earl Grey blend, iconic British tea brand Twinings has teamed up with another British icon, fashion designer Alice Temperley, to create an exclusive Temperley for Twinings print, which has been turned into a limited edition scarf.
Alice Temperley’s beautiful print is an hommage to the incredible journey of the original Earl Grey blend, created by Twinings in 1831, as it travelled across the oceans from China to the UK. This exclusive print will be featured across a range of products, starting with the scarf.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of these before it goes on sale on Friday, July 1st on the Twinings website and let me tell you: it is one of the nicest scarves I’ve seen in a while. 100% silk, absolutely huge in size (my arms don’t stretch that far), comes in a beautiful keepsake box, and the print and colours are light and breezy -perfect for summer. The scarf is limited to 1000 pieces and will retail for £115, so you’ll have to be quick if you want one of these. Or…
…. you could just win one from me. Yes, I’ve been given a second one to (rather reluctantly) give away to one of my readers. It’s easy: I won’t force you to follow me on Twitter (here) or join my Facebook fan page (here). I won’t make you retweet or forward to your friends. I won’t even make you join the Twinings Facebook or Twitter pages either. But if you want to, that would be pretty nice. Just saying.
All you need to do to win is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling me your favourite place to drink a nice cup of tea. Afternoon tea at The Ritz or your kitchen, it’s all good to me. My good friend Random Line Picker will choose the winner at random from all entries I receive by Saturday July 2nd, 6pm GMT. Simple enough, right?
Good luck, can’t wait to make someone as happy with their scarf as I am with mine.
