The Art of Tea is long celebrated in many cultures. From India to Africa, China to the West Indies, the Camellia sinensis, the evergreen plant from which all tea is derived, has become a mainstay in the lives of many.
Enter SMAKS Bespoke Teas. A family business dating back some 32 years, thrives as the premier Luxury Tea House of the West Indies.
For Kiran Shiva Akal, creative director of SMAKS, the teas invoke his ancestry and tell the stories of his life, his island and his culture. The teas, infused with ingredients as exotic as roses from Persia and cocoa from the West Indies, are packaged in several varieties, including Bermuda Pink, Barbados Silver, Caribbean Chai, Trinidad Breakfast, Tobago Afternoon, Antillean Green and Grenadines Purple. www.smaksbespoketeas.com.
