Our new tea collection recently launched is inspired by the writings and characters of Agatha Christie. This English writer is known for her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections, with the most famous revolving around her fictional detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.
During the Second World War, she worked as a pharmacy assistant at a hospital in London, where she developed a good knowledge of poisons which feature in many of her novels.
Agatha Christie’s novels have sold roughly 2 billion copies, and it is claimed that her works come third in the rankings of the world's most-widely published books, behind only the works of Shakespeare and the Bible.
Most of her books and have been adapted for television, radio, video games and comics, and more than thirty feature films have been based on her work.
With this pedigree, this has inspired us to try and emulate some of her characters and places from this huge literary offering, and so we have put together 8 classics into this collection which we hope you will enjoy.
