From his meteoric rise in the early 1990s as a remarkable young footballer, Beckham appeals to Brits and Americans alike as an unpretentious athlete who's down to earth excellence also made him a passionate leader, advocate for his teammates, for the sport, and for health in general.
Which brings us to the all-important question: what tea would Beckham drink?
Our Scottish Caramel Pu-erh and our Summer Passion Green teas are the perfect tisanals for two fit, fabulous, high energy Brits who've redefined modern glamour (or us well-meaning, reasonably fit and not-too-shabby American tea-lovers). We think David and Victoria Beckham would love them. Beck’s life revolves around energy, focus, and recharge. He needs antioxidants, a sharp memory, and relief from a long day's work. Scottish Caramel Pu-erh's creamy and earthy flavor would no doubt hit the spot – when Beckham is looking for an after-meal dessert drink.
