17 Tea-Riffic Gifts for Tea Lovers

There's nothing better than a warm cup of awesomeness.

By Sarah Taviani | 3rd May 2016

Do you have some tea lovers in your life? Or maybe you ARE the tea lover. Either way, there are only a few things you need to ensure eternal happiness for that person. If it’s not tea, it’s tea accessories. And we’ve got some awesome gift options right here.

OUT-OF-THE-BOX FLAVOURS

The Literary Tea Co.

opt_literary-tea-co_etsy
This adorable Etsy store features tea inspired by various authors such as C.S. Lewis, William Shakespeare and Agatha Christie. Perfect for curling up with a good book! Best of all, this company is based in Sydney so you get to support a small Australian business.

Vintage TeaWorks 
This company is passionate about two things: tea and wine. So Why not have the best of both worlds? Vintage TeaWorks’ range celebrates the unique characteristics of wine and tea in flavours such as Green Tea Sauvignon, Black Tea Merlot and Oolong Chardonnay.

T2

opt_lamington_t2
If you're anything like most tea lovers, you’ve probably checked out T2’s insanely awesome range before. They have something for EVERYONE (even lovers of iced tea!), but who can go past the range of chocolate and sweet teas? Crème Brulee, anyone? Choc Chip Chai? LAMINGTON? I will take 17 of each, please.

Adagio Teas
If you’re a fan of, well, anything, then Adagio Teas has a blend for you! TV shows, movies, comics and bands – they all have their own range from various stockists. Fancy a taste from A Galaxtea Far, Far Away? Or perhaps you’d like to sit back and relax with a cup of Magnum from Zoolander? Adagio has everything from A to Z.

West End Tea Co.

OPT_west-end-tea-co
If you’re looking for organic loose leaf tea or premium tea bags, look no further than the delicious flavours of West End Tea Co. This locally-owned and –operated organic tea company has been going strong in Brisbane since 2012. Yes, THAT West End! How’s that for some local flavour?

TEA INFUSERS

Koala Tea Bag Infuser 
Why have a normal tea infuser when you could have something that’s higher koala-tea? This adorable koala infuser is the perfect way to show off some patriotism… or just remind people how much you loved Blinky Bill. Bonus points if you couple your cup of tea with a Caramello Koala.

Mr Tea Novelty Tea Infuser

OPT_MR-TEA_-australian-geographic
Ever wanted to bathe in tea? Well, you probably could. Or you could just live vicariously through Mr Tea.

Sharky Tea Infuser 
It’s Sharknado in a cup! This is an infuser for the hardcore tea lovers out there. Drink your tea. Glare at your enemies. Freak them out with what looks like blood in your tea cup. You do you.

Manatea Infuser 
This one wins everything. LOOK AT HIS CUTE LITTLE FACE. You just have to pull off the manatee’s head to get your brew on. Sounds harsh but he seems to be totally fine with it.

Pug in a Mug Novelty Tea Infuser

OPT)pug-in-a-mug_australian-geographic
I didn’t choose the pug life. The pug life chose me.

TEA POTS

Tale as Old as Time 

OPT_tea-for-one_target

If you didn’t want Belle’s library from Beauty and the Beast, you sure as heck wanted a Mrs Potts tea set. Go on. Click on it. You know you want to bask in its awesomeness.

Tea for One
Sharing is caring but sometimes you just want the tea all to yourself. This set has got you covered.

Bigger on the Inside 
This Doctor Who tea pot may or may not allow you to travel through time and relative dimensions in space. I make no guarantees.

TEA CUPS AND MUGS

Baby, You’re So Classic

opt_goddess-ocean-ink-teacup_t2

I’m a sucker for beautiful tea cups. Some of my current favourites include this Goddess Ocean Ink Teacup from T2  and this gorgeous Cristina Re Jolie Paris Tea Cup.

A Few of Your Favourite Things

OPT_books-and-tea_bookworm-boutique-
“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” C.S. Lewis was right on the money, man. Show off your love for books and tea with this super cute mug from Bookworm Boutique. It comes in more than one colour as well, so make sure you find your favourite! Or just buy them both. That could work too.

Fit for a Mad Hatter 
It’s always tea time with this delightfully quirky Alice in Wonderland-inspired mug.

Mr Tea Travel Mug

opt_mr-tea-travel-mug_etsy
Ain’t nobody got time fo’ their tea to cool down! Drink your brew on the go and pity the fools who didn’t think to grab one of these.
