45 Best Gifts for Tea Lovers - Unusual Tea Gifts

There's never a right or wrong time to enjoy a cup of tea — in the morning, at night before bed or during the work day. Avid tea drinkers appreciate the little pick-me-up that this ritual can provide, whether they're sitting in their office cubicle or cozying up with a good book prior to hitting the sack. To make a loved one's tea drinking experience even sweeter, why not treat them to a product or two that they'll look forward to using every time they sit down for a cuppa? That's why we're sharing the best gifts for tea lovers, which range from the highly practical to the witty.

If you're looking to splurge a bit, consider treating a tea drinking pal to something luxe like a tumbler that will keep their tea warm for hours on end or a special collection of cups and saucers — we've sourced the most beautiful Alice in Wonderland themed set that is sure to become a forever favorite of theirs. If you're sticking to more of a budget, you can never go wrong presenting your recipient with something cute like a heart-shaped infuser or a matcha sampler that they'll enjoy trying out over time.

Whether you're shopping for Grandma or any other tea lover in your life, we've provided you with plenty of possibili-TEAs (get it?) that are bound to be crowd pleasers. Any of these picks make great hostess gifts, too!

You can't go wrong with this stainless steel tumbler (it's 22 ounces, by the way!), complete with an infuser for their favorite loose leaf tea.

This mug (that's equipped with an infuser) has five stars on Amazon. Why? Along with taking your pick of 13 colors, it has an easy-to-hold handle that's designed to withstand heat.

Rather than seeping a tea bag for a few minutes, just drop one of these in hot water to enjoy the flavor. This set comes with eight different ones, including citrus ginger, sweet peppermint and blueberry açai.

Their next tea party will be one to remember thanks to the addition of these lovely floral plates. They resemble china but are actually disposable — because who wants to clean up after hosting?

Everyone needs a trusty stirrer spoon to make sure their cuppa tastes just right. This one features an extra special phrase that's ideal for the tea drinker who's also a bookworm.

Every month, they'll get four personally curated types of tea, (including exclusive brands!), which will produce up to 48 cups. Yep, enough to last them the whole month.

If they appreciate the French bakery Ladurée as well as an unexpected present, these macaron-shaped surprise balls are perfect. Each one contains a few sweet gifts, including a joke and an enamel butterfly charm.

This 1,000-piece puzzle shows just how eye-catching tea essentials can be. Once they're done putting together the colorful mix of teapots, cups and spoons, they'll be tempted to frame their puzzle and use it as decor.

The Good Housekeeping Institute loves this 1.7-liter electric kettle for a few reasons. Along with an ergonomic handle, it has six pre-programmed temperature settings to suit a range of tea drinkers. You can even clearly see how much water is in the kettle without ever opening the lid. Genius, if you ask us!

If they're wild for honey, they'll enjoy taking part in a "honey flight" and testing out all three of these flavors. How cute are the little bee-adorned bottles?

Nothing is more appropriate for a whimsical tea lover than this Alice in Wonderland themed tea set, which is sure to make an appearance at every gathering they host. When it isn't in use, it will look fabulous on their kitchen shelving and make for an instant conversation starter.

Delicate vintage teacups have been repurposed into charming candles that are begging to be displayed in a tea lover's home. When the wax is burned through, your recipient can easily clean out the cup and use it traditionally once again.

Beyond adding a dose of personality to her cooking space, this enamel teapot with a stainless steel rim can hold enough water for six cups of tea. Choose from one of four colors to complement her kitchen aesthetic.

A funky handbag will never fail to take an outfit to the next level, and this one is bound to be a showstopper. Unlike some novelty purses, it's actually quite sizable, so you can feel good about its practicality.

Bring a dose of Jonathan Adler's energetic design style into their abode with a high-fired porcelain teacup and saucer. The hexagon pattern and gold details are just what they need to add a touch of sophistication to their daily ritual.

The tea loving history buff will get a kick out of this set of five teas — all of which are the types that were thrown overboard during the infamous Boston Tea Party in 1773.

These tea pods fit inside of a Keurig, making them excellent for the workplace. There are so many fun flavors to try, ranging from lemon to chai spice, so you'll have an option to look forward to when that 3 pm slump hits, no matter your mood that day.

Sure, tea for two is nice, but there's nothing wrong with enjoying a cuppa solo, either. This set is meant for one person — the teapot is designed to sit on top of the cup when not in use, which also makes for easy storage if you're short on cupboard space. It's the perfect accessory for their self care nights!

Say goodbye to those basic to-go mugs collecting dust in your kitchen cabinet. The Good Housekeeping Institute is a fan of this new 16-ounce Ember tumbler. It'll keep their tea warm for up to three hours, plus they can choose their desired temperature. While it's certainly a splurge, it's something they will truly want to use each and every day.

Packed with good-for-you antioxidants and antibiotic properties, this raw honey is produced on a Hunterdon County Farm. It's refreshing blend of wildflower and lemon is perfect for sweetening their favorite tea.
