If you're getting loose leaf tea as a gift for a casual tea lover, you can't be sure they have a good way to steep it. Give them a cute tea infuser to go with it, like this adorable swan swim float infuser!

Personally, I prefer metal or mesh infusers over silicone infusers, no matter how cute the silicone ones are. The one here has a metal infuser basket underneath the floating top!

Gifts for the Aspirational Tea Lover

The Aspirational Tea Lover drinks tea daily and makes decent tea, but would like to improve the quality of their cuppa. They are interested in learning more about tea, and may still use bagged tea for daily use, but use loose tea when they want a really good cup. 

What to buy them:

Electric kettle with tea temperature presets

I just got one of these a few weeks ago after my super-basic decade-old electric kettle died. And I've been wanting one like this for yeeeears.

The reason this is awesome is that not only does it look beautiful on your counter, it has temperature presets for all the different types of teas you might want to make, so I was able to successfully make white tea today for the first time without an unpleasant mouthfeel or a bitter aftertaste.

It also has a sweet "hold temperature" button on it so it will maintain the temp you set it at for an hour if you want, instead of just turning off once it reaches the desired temperature. That way you can come back for seconds!

Continue Reading

Digital tea timer

I'd love one of these digital tea timers to go with my new electric kettle. It has preset buttons for green, white, black, or herbal tea so you don't oversteep your cuppa!

Continue Reading

ingenuiTEA Bottom-Dispensing Teapot

Photo Credit: www.amazon.com

I received one of these as a gift from my sister over a decade ago and I've been using it ever since. It is hands-down my favorite way to brew loose-leaf tea.

Unlike a ball diffuser, it allows the tea leaves to float around in the water, much like a French press would for coffee. To dispense, you just sit it on top of your mug (or that thermos I have linked above!) and the tea dispenses out of the bottom!

Perfect as a gift with a few flavors of loose-leaf tea!

Continue Reading

Gifts for the Traveling Tea Lover

These gifts are great for the jetsetting tea lover who loves to travel and experience international flavors!

What to buy them:

Exotic Teas of The World Gift Set

Does your gift recipient love tea and love to travel? This sampler features 8 different flavors of tea from all around the world!

Continue Reading

Dual Voltage Travel Foldable Electric Kettle

Photo Credit: www.amazon.com

If your traveling tea friend is looking for something they'll use every time they go on a trip, consider this tiny collapsable electric kettle.

Any tea lover will tell you microwaved water is the worst, and a hotel's drip coffee maker produces water that's flavored like stale coffee and not nearly hot enough for a good cuppa.

You'll solve all those problems with this .6-quart kettle that will collapse to fit effortlessly in their luggage and is even dual voltage for when they travel internationally!

Continue Reading

Gifts for the Working Tea Lover

Working in an office daily comes with its own tea-drinking challenges, like trying to get out the door in the morning for work and keeping your tea warm throughout the day. These gifts will help make their tea easier and more enjoyable!

What to buy them:

16 Ounce Stainless Steel Commuter Bottle

Photo Credit: www.amazon.com

This is another product I can personally vouch for. I have been using this thermos for years and I can attest to its ability to keep things hot and leak-free for HOURS. I can drink my tea at 2 p.m. after 6 hours at work and it's still perfectly warm.

No more running back to the microwave every 10 minutes or trying to chug your tea before it gets cold! Your desk-bound tea lover friend will appreciate the ability to have a nice hot tea that lasts all day.

Continue Reading

Breville One-Touch Tea Maker

This item is pricey but it's been on my tea-loving sister's wish list for ages. It's the automated tea maker of tea lovers' dreams. You can set it the night before like you might a coffee maker, and at the designated time it will brew your tea at exactly the right temperature for exactly the right amount of time for your specific type of tea. It then removes the tea from the water so it doesn't become bitter.

Can you imagine a better gift for the tea lover who has limited time to get ready for work in the morning?

Gifts for the Ceremonial Tea Lover

This person is interested in tea ceremonies and may drink mostly green tea or matcha. This is in contrast to the Afternoon Tea Lover, who is interested more in the British/Western tea culture. Someone may be both an Afternoon Tea Lover and a Ceremonial Tea Lover, but if you get an Afternoon Tea Lover-only a matcha whisk don’t be surprised if it ends up in the back of a drawer.

What to buy them:

Complete Matcha Ceremony Gift Set

Handmade Natural Mate Gourd Set Including Bombilla (Yerba Mate Straw)

Photo Credit: www.amazon.com

The Japanese are not the only ones who use tea ceremonially!

Yerba Mate is a strong tea and a traditional drink in South America. It's brewed in a gourd like this one and drunk through the included straw (which has mesh on the bottom to prevent the loose leaves from entering the straw). The mate would then be ritually passed among guests in a group, each drinking from the straw.

The drinking vessel is an important part of the ceremony and would make a perfect gift!
