Best Tea Kettles
Variable temperature control system heats to your preference - 180°F for green, white, light oolong teas, or 212°F for black, dark oolong, and herbal teas.
How cute is this? If you’re looking for something with a little more style, I've always admired this tea kettle. It’s a beautiful design and I love the little bird as the whistle.
It is a little pricier but it would definitely make a very beautiful and thoughtful gift. The wide base design makes for a quick boil.
A variable temperature control electric tea kettle with precise temperature controls from 105°F to 212°F makes it perfect for any type of tea. The long spout makes a great pour with a modern aesthetic. The hold mode keeps your water waiting and toasty for 30 minutes.

The hand-made Yixing teapot makes a very special gift for the serious tea drinker. This is a classical style Zisha teapot, which is loved by modern tea drinkers for its simple design.
Great for brewing Oolong Tea, Pu-erh Tea, Black Tea.
I have a Wedgwood China teapot and not only is it elegantly beautiful, but it also makes a perfect cup of tea. The shape and proportions are just right. The traditional English style and white design will go with any set. I especially love the simple but elegant design. Available on Wayfair.
This is a beautiful glass teapot. This one is designed of borosilicate (heat-resistant) glass – so it will withstand the heat of boiled water. I like the awesome bamboo trivet too.
Serves two and has a stainless steel infuser – perfect for brewing premium loose leaf tea. The glass is nice because it allows you to see the color of the tea infusion. Comes in a beautiful blue gift box from Everything Zen.
The Japanese cast iron teapot is designed to hold the heat in. You can steep your fine loose leaf tea directly in the mesh strainer that comes with it.
It always looks nice on the table. I would advise a trivet under the teapot though because they do get very hot. It keeps the tea inside nice and hot for multiple pours. Nice when you’re serving company, or when you're simply sipping tea all morning!

Best Herbal Gifts For Tea Lovers
I've bought Rishi brand before and know they make great products.
This is the latest in wellness tea, studies show ginger and turmeric have broad anti-inflammatory benefits. It's an ancient Ayurvedic tea.
Another caffeine-free tea choice. This would make a nice little stocking stuffer!
This is a high-quality chamomile tea and this might just be the ticket. All of Rishi teas are organic and many have won awards. They hand blend their teas in small batches. They sell in loose leaf and tea bag variety, but I find the quality is always better in loose leaf tea.
If you purchase the two Rishi teas recommended here together, it would make a nice little gift package.
