Here are twelve of the best tea gift sets perfect for any tea lover. A beautiful tea sampler set makes gifting tea easy!
What’s the best gift for tea lovers? Well – tea of course!
But what if you don’t know what kind of tea to buy because there are sooo many choices. And, you’re really not sure what kind of tea your tea lover likes in the first place.
The answer is a tea sampler set.
This usually includes a grouping of the vendors’ best-selling teas, so that gives you a pretty good chance of getting it right.
Sometimes the samplers are a complete variety and sometimes the tea samplers are grouped into tea types, such as a variety of black teas, or oolong teas.
If you know the person you’re gifting loves chai or oolong tea, go with an all chai or all oolong variety gift set. There’s sure to be something they like or better yet a tea they’ve yet to try!
If all you know about their tea-drinking habits is that they drink tea, it might be best to buy the variety pack that covers everything from black to herbal teas (tisanes).
