I've been drinking and enjoying tea for many decades and even though I enjoy my coffee if I have to make a choice tea is still hands down my favorite.
What to give a tea lover? Well there's lots of great options available from a selection of teas to strainers, mugs, tea pots and much, much more.
Let's have a look at a few things that I'd like to see gift wrapped for me!
Cute, Fun, Unique, Retro & Anything BUT Boring Tea Infusers!
There are so many different tea infusers available to purchase from cute tea infusers, to fun ones, cool retro tea infusers and more - one thing these tea infusers have in common is that they're unique and are perfect gift ideas.
I have been in love with the Sloth tea infuser for a while, but that didn't stop me absolutely falling head over heels in love with the manatee inspired infuser I received one year. Check out my fun tea infuser reviews below -
These tea infusers are a couple of my favorite tea inspired gifts that I've received and they put a smile on my face every time I use them.
I may only have a couple at the moment, but that doesn't stop me looking at others all of the time - here are some of my favorite ones -

Tea Pots & Tea Pot Gift Sets
Of course you can't go past a tea pot as a gift idea for a tea drinker and there's an awesome selection available. The great thing about a tea pot is that you can use it with tea bags or loose tea so it doesn't matter what their preference is.
I love the stackable tea pot sets that you can get that combine a tea pot and cup (some of them even have a saucer as well) . If you're buying for a cat loving couple who enjoy tea then this set is sure to bring a smile to their faces -
In my household both my hubby and I enjoy drinking tea, but I do like to experiment with different teas whereas he sticks with his standard cuppa.
In cases where people are single, or the sole tea drinker in the house, or likes to try different teas then a stackable tea for one tea set is an awesome gift idea.

You may just want to get a straight tea pot, after all lots of people prefer to drink from mugs instead of cups these days and I do have a few for you to look at right here -
Blue Floral Cast Iron Teapot, 34-Ounce, Blue FloralCertified International 22457 Tunisian Sunset Teapot, 40 oz, MulticolorPorcelain Butterfly & Dragonfly Teapot Trimmed In Gold
As you can see teapots can be found in a range of different styles, personally I like what I think of as a traditional teapot (The Pioneer Woman one featured below), but I know that a lot of people associate teapots and tea parties with the style of the porcelain butterfly & dragonfly teapot style above.
With more and more people being inspired by different teas and infusions the blue floral teapot featured makes me think of an Asian influence, perfect for a Japanese tea ceremony.
I deliberately haven't included any clear, glass teapots in this selection even though they do appear to be quite a popular choice these days. If you're a tea drinker you'll be aware of how much the tannin in tea can stain your cup/mug/pot which is why I'm not sure how long the glass ones will stay looking as nice as they do.
Despite this I was given a clear tea pot as a gift so I will be trying it out for myself and will report back with a review at a later date. If the clear pots can be kept looking nice then there are a couple of different gifts that feature them including teapots that dispense the tea from the bottom and 'flowering' tea pots. Stay tuned for more on these after I've investigated more!
Tea Inspired Jewelry
Along with tea I do love jewelry and combining the two makes a unique gift idea for a tea drinker in your life. Just check out some of these favorite pieces of mine -

As I've said other options can include a selection of teas or a mug. When it comes to mugs there are some great personalized mugs available. An alternative to a personalized mug is the mugs that come complete with a strainer that sits inside them and a lid - I received one of these from a work colleague a few years ago and it's fantastic!
I hope I've given you a few gift ideas for the tea lover in your life & maybe even a few things you'd like for yourself.
