The Very Best Gifts for Tea Lovers

Updated by Amy Furr

Tea lovers know there’s just something so special and satisfying about enjoying a cup of tea. Perhaps it’s the ritual of preparation. From hearing the tea kettle whistle on the stovetop and selecting the morning’s tea blend to taking in the aroma of a steeping tea bag, making your tea can be a centering experience.

Perhaps it’s the presentation. There’s something for everyone to love about the look of tea time, whether you find dainty teapots and tea sets irresistible or prefer the utilitarian aesthetic of an electric kettle or tea infuser for loose leaf tea. Or, maybe you simply appreciate the humor of a quirky tea mug or the function of an ergonomic travel mug.

Perhaps most of all, it’s the discovery of new favorite teas. There’s so much for an enthusiastic tea sampler to experience: classic black teas like English breakfast tea and earl grey; awakening herbal teas like matcha green tea and chamomile; exotic types like chai tea or oolong...options are endless for those sampling different teas. Not to mention, any variety can be served hot or as an iced tea brew.

If you love tea and want to share your passion with fellow tea drinkers, you’ve come to the right place. Tea subscription boxes make great gifts for tea lovers, and for coffee lovers looking to expand their palettes. They also make perfect gifts for birthdays, to say congratulations, and are a great way to sweeten up special seasons like Mother's Day and the holidays.

Here at Cratejoy, we have subscription boxes featuring high-quality tea, tea accessories, and tea gifts galore to delight a deserving loved one. Whether you want to order your tea lover a monthly tea subscription or a sampler tea box, or you‘d like to treat them to a tea gift set including a unique teacup or tea party accessories, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect gift among our array of subscription box gift ideas.
