Great Gifts for Tea Lovers

When creating this list full of tea lovers’ gifts we tried to go for variety. This way, you should be able to find a suitable gift – whether it be a Christmas gift for tea lovers or a unique tea gift for another occasion.

Just try to remember if your tea lover already owns a specific product before making a purchase. You probably don’t want to gift them a full tea set when they already own one or two. If in doubt, opt for something a little less common – like the Matcha tea set – or for something that can be consumed – like different teas.

Matcha Tea Set

For those tea lovers you know who are super into matcha – or those that are interested in trying new things – this is the gift for them: A traditional matcha set! Preparing the perfect cup of matcha has never been easier (if you’re outside of Japan, that is).

Things to Consider When Buying Gifts For Tea Drinkers

There are a few things you’ll want to consider before you buy a tea gift for a tea lover. Let’s break them down one by one below!

Ingredients

If you do end up buying actual tea bags or loose leaf tea itself, then you should definitely consider what ingredients are used in the tea you are planning on buying. It’s always a good idea to buy tea with high-quality ingredients that are ethically and sustainably sourced.

Your tea lover will likely also have a distinct tea tasting palate – e.g. they are a green tea fan or black tea lover – so try to get a sense of what that is!

Price and Quality

We have included tea gift ideas in different price ranges on our list. Cheaper tea gifts don’t necessarily have a bad quality – often they are just smaller, more affordable items. You could always buy a few different small gifts and create your own tea gift basket.

More expensive pots, infusers, mugs, sets, etc are higher in price for a reason – generally, they are a good quality product that lasts a long time. These make great gifts – but make sure your tea lover doesn’t already have a go-to item like a pot they always use! Otherwise, they might not use your gift.

Affordable Gifts for Tea Drinkers

Affordable gifts for tea drinkers can be simple additions to larger tea equipment. They can also make great stocking stuffers – or bundle a few of them together for a tea-based gift pack that you built yourself. There is no harm in a bunch of useful little tea gifts.

Mid-range Gifts for Tea Drinkers

Mid-range gifts for tea drinkers can also be quite simple. There are plenty of great gifts that, depending on who they are for, can be the primary gift or still act as an accessory piece to a larger gift.

Often times, these mid-range gifts are accessories like cups, books, mugs, etc. In fact, we have a whole post on really funny mugs if you want to include that in your gift set!

High-end Gifts for Tea Drinkers

If you are looking to spend a bit more on that tea-based gift, there are some great gifts for the ultimate tea lover in your life. Often times, these are tea sets or pots that are great to look at and are – most importantly – super functional for serving delicious high-quality tea!

Purpose

Obviously, this is an important one. You do need to consider who you are buying for and whether they have a similar item. If they do, and you buy them another one, the likelihood that your gift will just sit on a shelf is high.

There is also often a difference in tea gear that a tea drinker uses personally while alone versus something they would offer to another person who is visiting. Just something to keep in mind when considering a tea gift!

And there you have it – 13 gift ideas for the tea lover on your list this year. In the end, there are plenty of different great gifts that could be a great choice! Just think about the person you’re buying for when considering a gift and we’re confident that you’ll find something suitable!
