Next up is the tea lover gift guide, because how could I not?!
Clockwise from top left, we’ve got…
1. T2’s Melbourne Breakfast Tea
What’s it all about? My favourite black tea – deliciously rich, with an amazing vanilla flavour.
Buy it for: English breakfast tea drinkers who are due for a change
2. A T2 tea set
What’s it all about? T2 have the most stunning tea sets, at a range of prices to suit everyone. The one pictured was a gift from my sister for my birthday, but it’s not my only one!
Buy it for: Everyone. Whether they’re being used to drink or decorate, there’s something for everyone in there!
3. English Tea Shop tea
What’s it all about? Organic, fair trade and utterly delicious, these are my favourite tea bag teas. I go through a 20 pack box of English Breakfast tea probably every 6 weeks or so, and I’m also in love with the lemongrass, citrus and ginger first thing in the morning.
Buy it for: The tea lovers who care about what goes into their tea, and where it comes from.
4. The Old Tea Shop almond & vanilla tea
What’s it all about? One of my favourite places to buy tea from, the range is enormous (over 200 different types), the gem scones baked on site are fantastic, and you can order online if you don’t have time to get to Warburton. My favourite is the almond and vanilla black tea.
Buy it for: Again, everyone – with over 200 teas to choose from, it shouldn’t be too hard!
5. Target glass teapot
What’s it all about? I’ve always wanted a glass teapot, and when I found this one for around $20 at Target, I jumped at it – there’s something beautiful about watching the tea infuse…
Buy it for: The tea lovers who have every other type of teapot.
6. The Spice & Tea Exchange coconut oolong tea
What’s it all about? Hands down the best non-black tea I’ve ever had. Found it in New Orleans and just found out I can order it online to be delivered to my door! It’s the most incredible coconut, woody, fresh flavour, get on it!
Buy it for: An alternative to the standard black or green tea options.
7. Op shop tea accessories
What’s it all about? Underrated way of shopping for tea accessories; hit the op shops and see what you can find! I got that teapot at an op shop for $10, and the vintage cup and saucer for around $15, and they’re my favourites in my big collection because they’re the two pieces that really have soul 🙂
Buy it for: The special tea loving hipster in your life.
