Tea Party

10 01 2012

Tea is usually associated with the Orient, and the Orient usually includes Egypt.  Hence the exotic packaging on these two boxes of tea, c. 1930.  The Edjol box pictures a little-used motif, the Colossus of Memnon.  I’m not sure why the Sphinx brand tea needs to be distributed by a laboratory, though.. unless it has something to do with the herbal additive.
