Twenty Nine Ninety Eight: A Collection of Blends for the Intellectually Bent
A series of 4 kinds of tea, each featuring a different literary heroine. The idea was to combat the idea of the domesticity of tea and women by creating fictional tea blends themed on with strong, intelligent female literary characters:
Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter (© JK Rowling)
Alice from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol
Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
and Mary Poppins by P. L. Travers (© The Walt Disney Company)
The name comes from the geographic coordinates of the place where tea was first discovered (28 N, 98 E).
The packages are made from watercolour paper.
