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.
