45 Gifts For Tea Lovers That Will Help Them Steep The Perfect Mug

Pinkies up!

gifts for tea lovers
Alyssa Gray

Tea has a long history. It's one of the oldest beverages around, dating back to references made in 2737 BCE. According to a Chinese legend, Emperor Shen Nong accidentally discovered it when boiling water in the garden. A leaf fell in the pot from a wild tree and infused the water. He enjoyed drinking it so much, he continued to research it, eventually discovering its medicinal properties. But it wasn't until during the Tang Dynasty a few thousand years later that the drink became popular.

Now, just about every culture on earth drinks tea (except maybe Ted Lasso. IYKYK). There's nothing quite like cozying up with a warm mug in hand, whether it's filled with a calming chamomile, caffeinated English breakfast, or flavorful matcha. But we all have that one friend or relative in our life who doesn't just love tea—tea is their entire personality. They drink multiple cups a day, have tea-themed clothing, and try out every new tea product.

This list of gift ideas is for them, but also the mild tea lovers looking to explore the tea world a little more.. You can't go wrong with anything on this list. From the basics (tea, kettles, mugs, infusers) to products to outfit their lifestyle (tea warmers, tea-infused skincare) and merch that shows the world just how much they love the drink (a tea-shirt, enamel pins, boba tea plushies) these fun gifts match any budget.

And if you're looking to add a little booze to your tea, check out these recipes.
