Fancy a pot of tea? Whether you prefer rich black teas or soothing chamomile blends, drinking tea is a daily ritual for many people around the world. But this isn’t anything new; tea is one of the most popular beverages throughout human history. Its origins date back to 2737 BCE in China.

Legend has it that Emperor Shen Nong accidentally discovered the drink when a wild tea tree leaf drifted into his pot while he was boiling water in the garden. He was pleasantly surprised by the infused water’s taste and began researching the plant further. He discovered tea's medicinal properties, and the ritual of drinking tea soon became an important part of Eastern culture. Traders and explorers brought tea to the West, where the wealthy would partake in tea ceremonies for special occasions. However, today, drinking tea is for everyone, and most households have some sort of variety and flavors in their kitchen cupboards.

If you know someone who can’t go a day without a perfect cup of tea, we’ve put together a blend of fun and functional tea-themed gifts that are sure to warm their hearts. Featuring unique items ranging from adorable tea strainers and teapots to quirky coasters and spoons, this selection is perfect for those who want to make, drink, and enjoy their drink in style. In addition to tea-making tools, this list also features fashionable finds—like a cute tea shirt, delightful enamel pin, and clever tea bag—that allow dedicated tea lovers to share their infused interest with the world.

Steeped in originality, these gifts are bound to be your special someone's cup of tea.
