I love my coffee but I also enjoy a cup of tea at night. As a child, I drank tea in the morning with my butter and honey toast. In the winter, we would make tea to warm ourselves. For others, tea is the only thing they drink, next to water, and wouldn’t have it any other way. If you know a tea drinker and are looking for the perfect gift, we can help. Below is a list of the best gifts for a tea lover that are sure to please the senses and taste buds.
Benefits of Drinking Tea
There are many benefits to drinking tea which include:
- Less caffeine than coffee
- High in antioxidants
- Ginger tea can help with morning sickness
- Peppermint tea can help with stomach discomfort and headaches
- Chamomile tea is soothing and perfect for bedtime
- Hibiscus tea is great for lowering blood pressure
These are just some of the different teas and their benefits. No wonder people are obsessed with their tea and can’t get enough. Myself included.
The thing that can make your tea unhealthy is adding milk and processed sugar. Doing this can diminish the health properties. Instead, add a dash of raw honey to make it more enjoyable. Also, avoid drinking very hot tea as overly hot beverages can cause stomach issues.
Tea Loving Gift Ideas
Moving on to the best part, gifting! I love to give gifts more than receiving them, sometimes. Giving a gift that the person needs or will utilize is the best part. So if you are looking for the best gifts for a tea lover, you can choose one or two from the list.
Tea Set- Every tea drinker should have a proper tea set. These sets usually come with a teapot, tea cups and saucers. They can also sometimes include a stand or tea set holder. You can choose everything from ceramic to stainless steel to hand made tea sets. Make sure to choose the color or design that they love, not something you prefer.
Tea- Could a tea lover possibly need more tea? The answer is usually a yes. Choose a variety of teas or stock up on their favorite tea. If you’re giving just tea, make sure to add something else with it such as a tea steeper or a fancy tea cup.
Mug- If your friend loves tea but hates dainty things like a traditional English tea set, get them a tea mug. There are a few different options including funny tea mugs, clear glass tea mugs, and cups with infusers.
In the end, the best gifts for a tea lover come from the heart. You don’t have to spend a lot in order to show your friend that you care, miss them or are thinking of them on their special day.
