I'm a tea girl through and through. I drink tea like my coffee loving friends drink their beloved coffee. Tea has been a real life saver for me though in many ways. When I was pregnant with both my children a cup of chamomile tea would somehow calm my Crohn's flares. And if you know what a flare feels like, you know how wonderful it is to find something to decrease that pain. I have a weakened digestive system so I frequently rely on peppermint and ginger tea as a quick and effective digestive aid. To calm my nerves I love a cup of chamomile and lavender, for clarity of mind, Rooibos, and for a pick-me-up I adore a smokey green tea or Herba Mate.
I can't think of a better gift than the gift of beautiful, healing tea!
The above picture is something I quickly put together.
Total cost was about $5.
I went to my local Coop and searched through the loose-leaf teas. I found a nice middle road green tea and a herb/fruit blend. I purchased a cup or so of each and mixed together. I dressed the tea with a beautiful organic lemon and a fun stainless steel mesh tea infuser. This would be a super fun gift for the tea enthusiast or otherwise. This would also be a thoughtful gift for Mother's Day, Father's Day, or your child's teacher.
You could certainly expand on this idea and create a more involved tea gift. Some ideas include:
