We all have that one friend who keeps tea bags in their tote at all times. And even though coffee is constantly hyped up, we think the tea-obsessed friend deserves a little love too. That's why we rounded up all the best giftable essentials for them — from a colorful tea kettle and funky glassware to delicious tea bundles and more. Tea-riffic.
Tea drinkers know: there's something about using a kettle that feels extra-special. This stylish one comes in seven colorways and has an automatic shut-off function so you don't need to stress about burning your house down. Plus, it has an ergonomic grip handle, a water-level gauge, and a light indicator during boiling. Check it out. ($76.99+, Wayfair)
This seasonally themed set comes with four full-sized canisters. Flavors include peppermint rosehip, tulsi cinnamon, pomegranate hibiscus, and apple rosemary. The best part? The brand is woman-owned and the packaging is so cute, you don't even have to wrap it. ($54, Leaves of Leisure)
Keeping their surfaces protected = a necessity. These floral-shaped coasters have an aesthetically pleasing speckled print. They’re made of recycled plastic and can easily be wiped clean. Not to mention, the price for a set is almost too good to be true. ($18/4 pack, Urban Outfitters)
It's handmade, painted with pretty clouds, and will be sure to add a whimsical touch to their space. Their go-to mug deserves an upgrade…and you’ll be buying one for yourself in no time. ($24.99, Amazon)
Covered in hand-painted florals, this duo includes a teapot that nestles on top of a matching cup. It's ideal for small spaces, plus it's dishwasher- and microwave-safe. It’ll elevate their tea time by making their daily cup feel even fancier. ($38, Anthropologie)
This "book" of honey comes with six gourmet flavors. They’ll get lavender, orange blossom, wildflower, black sage, tupelo, and sourwood. They’re all locally sourced and pesticide-free. Add a honey pot for the ultimate gift. So sweet. ($49, Uncommon Goods)
At-home matcha perfection, coming right up. Whether it's for their AM ritual or their afternoon pick-me-up, this kit from Golde has them covered. It comes with matcha and a bamboo whisk, so all they’ll have to do is add their go-to milk of choice for the latte of their dreams. Even if they don't have barista-level talent, they’ll still be able to whip up the perfect drink easily. ($48, Golde)
Now they can make delicious foamy creamer while at home. It's super simple to use — just click the on/off button to start whisking. Buy it for the coffee drinkers in your life too. ($9.99+, Amazon)
A messy drawer or a plastic bag is not an ideal way to store tea. This wooden tea organizer has eight compartments so that they can stash their bags on their countertop. They can show off their selection thanks to the clear top, and refilling will be ultra-satisfying. ($32.99, The Container Store)
They can keep this and a couple tea bags on hand so they’ll always have a caffeine boost when they need one. The cup folds down to fit into any bag, is made of heat-resistant, food-grade silicone, and even comes with a straw. Plus, it's a solid sustainable swap so they can avoid buying single-use plastics. Sip, sip hooray. ($17.99+, Amazon)
This delicious blend from Dona is sweet, spicy, and sustainably sourced. All they have to do is add milk. They can drink it hot or iced, and it's even great for cooking and baking. One editor's local bagel spot uses this concentrate and they get a flavorful latte every time. ($25/2 pack, Amazon)
If they’re new to loose-leaf tea, this sampler from David's Tea is the right place to start. It comes with 12 refreshing flavors, from green passionfruit to strawberry rhubarb parfait. If they are a loose-leaf aficionado, this set allows them to try new flavors before they commit to buying a full size. ($29, David's Tea)
This adorable tea infuser has arms that’ll cling to their mug as their tea steeps. It's made of extra-fine stainless steel mesh to ensure the leaves will stay in place. It's a sustainable option that makes using loose leaves a lot less intimidating. ($8.99+, Amazon)
Maybe you’re looking for the perfect housewarming gift or someone in your life deserves a treat. This mini box from Sips by comes with one tea bag kit, loose-leaf tea for up to four cups, and a gift note all wrapped in a velvet bow. Just pick whether they’ll want a caffeinated or decaffeinated option and add their gift note. PS: If you’re looking for a larger gift, we recommend their three-month tea subscription. ($5, Sips by)
