Birmingham, MI (January 14, 2011)—Lido Gallery, a creative gift shop and art gallery in Birmingham, Michigan, presents the Literary Tea Collection, the newest line of Steep Show Teas.

The Literary Tea Collection pairs famed authors with exquisite teas to pay homage to the literary greats like Jane Austen, William Shakespeare, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Oscar Wilde and more. Beautifully packaged with an author’s portrait and a famous passage, each tea is a fine blend of custom notes and flavors designed to evoke the spirit of the author.

“Steep Show Teas are carefully selected for quality, flavor and superior health benefits,” Lido Gallery Owner Diane DeCillis said. “From the art that celebrates the beauty of the human form to the intoxicating aroma and textures, we give you a tea experience that indulges body, mind and spirit.”

DeCillis created Steep Show Teas two years as an addition to her company’s wholesale sector. DeCillis—who also launched a line of artistic chocolates called Masterpiece Sweets—enjoys the creative experience of blending teas or adding special herbs, to create a unique taste, aroma or health benefit.

Each 1.5-2.5 ounce bag retails for $12; Steep Show Teas are available at Lido Gallery, 33535 Woodward Avenue, Birmingham, MI; 248-792-6246;

Lido Gallery offers imaginative gifts, original vintage posters, fine art exhibits, expert custom framing and more. In addition, Lido Gallery holds charitable fundraisers, art history lectures, and poetry and fiction readings by authors from around the country.
