# 1 “Teo” Spoon Tea Bag Squeezer
Okay, you probably think that draining a tea bag by winding the string around the spoon is the proper way to remove the used tea. But what if I tell you that this move is against the tea etiquette rules?
Believe me or not, there are some basic rules when drinking tea, especially when attending a tea party. And taking the tea out the cup, leaving it in a tea saucer, is one to remember. No matter how many spots you may leave on the table during this uncomfortable movement (the speed here is crucial, you know).
A clever little tool (that is actually a oddly shaped spoon) is perfect for the tea lover who can’t stand spots on the table or for the great hostess of your friends who’s freaking on non-spot-tablecloth-when-having-guests.
# 2 Teapot Lamp
The Teapot lamp is a great gift idea for the tea aficionados and their living rooms. This teapot lamp features a vintage teapot as a base, with a lampshade on top. Looking more as a decoration, it somehow works as a teapot and lamp at the same time, giving every single room a feel of antiquity.

The right measurements are the key to the perfect cup of tea and that’s what every tea lover knows. If you add too much or too little you’ll end up with a tea that is too strong or too weak. This digital measuring spoon will make sure you get it just right without any guesswork.
The Digital Measuring Spoon has interchangeable cups that let your tea-friend get his recipe exactly right. Need to convert measurements? The LED readout in the molded handle delivers information in ounces, grams, milliliters, tablespoons, teaspoons, and cups. The best part – the 2 pairs of liquid or dry measure scoops (2 sizes each) could be used to measure also other liquids (vinegar, oil, wine, cream) or dry ingredients (like flour, sugar, and salt, spice). Pretty useful gift for foodies, too! 🙂
# 4 Tea Stick
Simply elegant gift for tea lovers! It is actually a tea infuser (a very elegant one) which is made of stainless steel. You just slide to open and put the tea inside. Close it up, and stir it right into a cup of hot water. The holes are small enough for any size of tea leaves. It is tall enough to fit any size teacup. The Tea Stick designers have really done their best to make it work simply and efficiently so you can get to the most indulging part of the process: drinking freshly flavored tea.
Why would any tea lover love to get one? Well, many of the best tea brands and high-quality tea don’t come in bags anymore. This Tea Stick allows you to take the best of every tea. Not only! It could be used for adding flavors to your favorite cappuccino (like cinnamon sticks). Why not even fresh herbs for your soup? Yum!
# 5 Flowering Tea
These flowering tea blooms are so gorgeous gifts for tea lovers! It’s a real pleasure for all the perceptions – eyes, taste and smell. This flowering tea is actually a bundle of dried tea leaves wrapped around one or more dried flowers which blossom in hot water. It’s so magical and leaves a feeling of drinking tea as a very special ritual. There are different flavors and brands, but this set here is the perfect for a gift. It comes with a handy glass teapot that allows you to witness the miracle of this original Chinese tea ball that turns into a flower plus 4 different blooms of flowering tea. (and it’s not expensive for the Christmas!)
#6 Turkish Tea Set
Bring your tea lovers to the next level with an original Turkish tea set. Why? The countries from the Orient have very special traditions concerning tea drinking (so as Russia and Great Britain). Turkish tea is usually made with black tea leaves. But the secret of the perfect cup of Turkish tea is in the kettle. The tea should be slowly brewed over steam (coming from the bottle kettle) over medium heat. Pour out some tea brew and then dilute it with water.
I’ve told you- it’s a next level tea drinking, for aficionados only!
# 7 Beautiful Little Spoons
Each household needs little spoons. Especially those where tea is in adoration. The little teaspoons could be used for coffee and desserts (although they are so pretty that probably will be ‘hidden” for very special occasions only)
#8 Hand Stamped Spoons
Being on the teaspoons topic, I can’t miss these adorable hand-stamped spoons down below. A great advantage is that they are made in the USA and are truly unique gifts. Choose your favorite design (and words) to please your tea lover! The best part – these are customizable, meaning that if you have a special own message, better write the design the artist and directly ask if they could make it for you.
#9 The Ultimate Tea Book
Maybe your tea lover friend knows much about tea – origins, varieties, brands, even some recipes. But I am sure there are much more things to get acknowledged with about tea. Like the idea of reading tea leaves (it’s called tasseomancy).
Francis Amalfi has thoughtfully included E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G for tea freaks – from a brief history of tea and beautiful tea photos to descriptions of how various teas (black, green, white, blue, yellow, etc.) are created and how to use them in recipes (the Chinese marbled eggs are lovely!). The majority of recipes are for beverages (of course). Even therapeutic teas, desserts, sauces and soups recipes are included. The interesting part of the book is the description of the Japanese tea ceremony. There’s also “An Inspiring Cup” section where your tea lover will find quotes, adages, and poems (of course about tea, what else!). No matter which part of the book you’re most drawn to, I recommend reading it while enjoying a hot cup of tea or just grab it immediately as one of the best gifts for tea lovers.
# 10 Honey & Tea Spoons
Tea with honey – the perfect combination! These honey teaspoons are specially designed to rest on the edge of the cup or the honey jar after dripping honey in tea.The bowl part of the spoon is flatter than other spoons, so the honey just slides off into the cup of tea. A great tea lovers gift is a set of 6 or 12 of these spoons. You can add colored glass beads using wire to the handle. Another gift idea for Christmas is to combine these honey teaspoons with a small jar of local or even homemade honey. Thumbs up for this useful honey teaspoons!
