The Perfect Tea Gift for Everyone on Your List

‘Tis the season for sleigh rides, snow angels, holiday decorations, caroling, and shopping for presents for all of your loved ones. Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be challenging, especially when you take their unique interests into account.

Banish the stress of holiday shopping by giving the gift that everyone will be thrilled to receive: tea. Friends and family will be overjoyed to unwrap these thoughtful tea gifts, chosen with their personalities and passions in mind.

For the Traveler

Someone who is always jet-setting around the globe may not have time for a sit-down tea ritual, but that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t love to indulge in the ancient art of tea drinking.

Single Sips® are the perfect tea gift for anyone who is constantly on the go. These portable packets can be added to any bottle or cup of water—ideal for sipping on the plane, in a hotel room, or while exploring a foreign city.

We recommend including a leak-proof insulated travel bottle as part of your gift, too.

For the Wine Aficionado

Innovative Sonoma Teas bid adieu to the Camellia Sinensis leaves found in traditional teas, and instead feature fine wine grape skins harvested from Sonoma County. 

Delight the wine enthusiast in your life with the sophisticated flavor of Cabernet Sauvignon grape skins blended with oranges and currants, or Chardonnay grape skins merged with golden pineapples and peaches. 

Every sip of these bright, fruit-forward teas will gift them with the world-class flavors and aromas of California wine.

For the Student

Late night study sessions, back-to-back final exams, and group presentations—being a student comes with many responsibilities, and that stress can take a toll on the body and mind.

Help the student in your life suppress stress and block burnout with the organic SuperAdapt™ Teas. These teas feature adaptogenic ingredients like reishi mushroom, ginseng and holy basil.

Whether your student needs a rejuvenating boost of energy or a sense of calm and clarity, these teas will help them feel prepared for any task or test.

For the Chocolate Lover

Know someone with a serious sweet tooth and an affinity for all things chocolate? Treat your loved one to a tea that is as sweet as they are.

Cuppa Chocolate Teas blend premium cocoa with caffeine-free rooibos and other flavors, for a decadent indulgence that can be sipped any time of the day or night.

Each of these satisfying teas is reminiscent of a beloved dessert, from frozen bananas dipped in chocolate to a slice of freshly baked red velvet cake. 

For the Foodie

The Republic of Tea experience extends beyond tea leaves. Shop our pantry for a variety of tea-inspired treats, any of which would make the perfect gift for the foodie in your life.

Artisan-crafted Sea Salt Caramel Honey Cream can be spread on apple slices and toast, or mixed into oatmeal and popcorn. Our tea boosters—available in Double Dark Chocolate Mate and Tropical Hibiscus—deliver bold flavor to smoothies, sorbets, applesauce and yogurt.

With any of these tea pantry products, your loved one will have endless flavor combinations to explore and recipes to create.

For the Health Enthusiast

Do you have a loved one who is always planning their next 5k or squeezing in hot yoga before brunch? Show your support for their fitness-focused lifestyle by gifting them with tea from our line of Be Well Teas®.

Curated from caffeine-free rooibos and other natural botanicals, these wellness teas celebrate the joy of being and feeling your best. 

The Get Lost® Stackable Tea Tin or Wellness Stackable Tea Tin each feature three different teas, and make wonderful stocking stuffers.

We hope this tea gift guide helps you choose the perfect tea gift for everyone on your list. Happy holidays to all of our Citizens!
