Every time I think I have more tea than I can possibly finish, I get seduced by another blend to try, either my own or one I see in one of my favorite shops around Albuquerque--a classic tea lover's dilemma! Same goes for tea accouterments--strainers, teapots (especially my mom's!), tea cups...you name it. These two holiday gift baskets are perfect for quenching the thirst of your favorite tea lovers.
1. Tea Sampler: Samplers, or small jars of various teas, are a great way to try a bunch of different flavors before committing to a whole jar of tea. I like to use little 2 oz jam jars to share an array of my festive holiday blends like Winter Wellness Blend, Winter Solstice Tea, Holiday Chai, and Orange Spice Rooibos. As always, stick to a theme--in this case, winter or holiday teas. You can go the extra mile and provide the recipe for each tea should the receiver ever want to mix up a batch of his or her favorite!
2. Tea Treats: For the tea lover whose tastes are pretty set--or who you know absolutely loves a certain kind of tea--provide her with a jar of her favorite tea, a cheesy holiday tea mug, and maybe a funky strainer. Wrap in ribbon and wa-la! You have the perfect treat for your tea buddy.
