With Christmas just around the corner, we thought we’d share some ideas for tea-themed gifts and holiday tea parties. Of course our teas make a wonderful gift for any tea drinker on your list and there is still time to have them shipped for Christmas.
This is a great time to get together with friends and family to partake in a Christmas tea. This website, A Taste of Home, has a wonderful article full of ideas.
Some of my favorites are:
- Tea sandwiches cut with holiday cookie cutters such as a holly leaf
- A cookie exchange for a party favor
- A recipe for a holiday spiced tea with notes of cranberry
Other nice favor ideas are ornament exchanges or Christmas crackers — an English tradition! It’s also fun to just make tea a part of any other holiday event such as building a gingerbread house or wrapping presents.
Tea themed gifts are also fun for seasoned tea drinkers or those just starting out. Consider giving one or a few of your favorite teas to let someone else try and then you can compare notes! For a new tea drinker, a set of a mug (or teapot), tea and a strainer/tea ball is a great way to get someone started on loose tea.
