Tea lovers have got to be some of the easiest people to shop for. That’s because there’s just so much tea and teaware that they’d love to have, and so many ways to build a gift they’ll absolutely cherish . In this post, we’ll look at the best tea gift ideas for tea lovers – at any budget!
Budget Conscious Gifts
If you’re on a budget, there are many great tea gifts you can buy the tea lover in your life. Every tea lover appreciates a tea tumbler, and the Yixing clay tea tumbler is one of our most popular tumblers. Or, get them an infuser tea mug they can keep on their desks at work for all-day sipping.
If you want to get them some tea, try a beautiful “pearl” tea such as Jasmine Dragon Pearls Green Tea or the sumptuous Black Dragon Pearls Black Tea. Finish the gift with a small tea tin, tie with a ribbon and you’re good to go!
There are so many options for fantastic mid-range tea gifts. Narrow down your options by considering their style. If your friend is more traditional, they’ll love a Yixing clay teapot, which will absorb the flavor of their favorite tea and become “seasoned” over time. Pair the gift with a specialty “straight” tea like Monkey Picked Oolong Tea.
If the tea lover in your life has more eclectic taste, get them a set of glass tea cups. You can’t go wrong with this set of four Pixie Glass Tea Cups. Another beautiful choice is our Kiran Tea Glasses. Pair the glass tea cups with a beautifully colored tea such as Youthberry White Tea or Gyokuro Imperial Green Tea.
Gifts to Wow Them
If you can afford to spend a little bit more on the tea lover in your life, get them a gift they’ll have forever. A tea appliance like the Breville One-Touch Tea Maker is absolutely life-changing. They’ll use it every day, and they’ll have it forever.
Another very special gift is a cast iron tea pot. Our Tetsubin cast iron teapots come straight from Japan, and they’re made to last a lifetime. Each teapot is decorated with meaningful symbols. The dragon symbolizes power, strength, and good fortune while the tiger symbolizes courage and bravery.
