Gift Basket Ideas for Tea Lovers


Tea is associated with many pleasant things, chief among them comfort and tranquility. Offering both a gentle way to ease into a morning and a calming ritual perfect for bedtime, the ancient botanical drink brings balance and peace to any setting. It makes a welcome centerpiece to a gift basket, and creative options abound when you’re putting together gifts for tea lovers and new tea drinkers alike. Read on for some tea-centric gift basket ideas to delight everyone on the receiving end.


There may be no cozier pastime in the world than the simple act of curling up with tea and a good book. Especially for loved ones who could use a reminder to treat themselves to a tea break, consider pairing a fragrant caffeine-free tea (or two) with a book they might enjoy. This kind gesture may give them the permission they weren’t aware they needed for a few hours of much-needed “me” time. For inspiration, consult the National Book Foundation for award winners by genre and year.

Herbal Retreat Petite Box with open book

Tea Forté offers a variety of collections and teaware to curl up with.


If the receiver is looking to boost their wellness routine, Tea Forté’s Wellbeing collection provides wellness teas & accessories to relax, restore and revitalize the body and mind. Each of the five organic teas, a mix of green & white teas and herbal tisanes, comes together to support a glowing complexion, enlivened spirit, fortified defenses, calm state of mind, and purified sense of tranquility. 

Pair them with our Wellbeing KATI Cup, or other complementary teaware, including the Bone White Café Cup, Tea Trays, or the Fiore Teapot and Steeping Cup in a soothing Stone Blue.

Whether the receiver has a sweet tooth or a taste for salty, crispy snacks, tea makes for an easy pairing with a variety of sweet and savory bites. Tea and chocolate is a classic combination, as are tea cookies, water biscuits, dried fruits and nuts, honey, Amber Tea Sugar and luxury goods like fine cheese, aged vinegars, and infused oils.

Thoughtful gift basket combinations like these are a time-tested favorite, where elegant tea accessories and artisanal chai or oolong blend will always be met with enthusiasm.

Fiore Steeping Cups and honey

Sweeten their cup with honey or our own Amber Tea Sugar.


Tea can transport the mind to another place and time, and that may have something to do with the deep history of tea. Perhaps the recipient is an Anglophile with a love of all things royal; if so, consider pairing a very English gift of Earl Grey tea or English Breakfast with a few other items straight from the UK.

Do you know a gardener that needs a tea gift? Tea Forté and The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) have come together for the past 5 years to create five unique tea collections inspired by The Garden's Rare Book and Folio Collections of the Lu Esther T. Mertz Library – the largest botanical library in the world. Each tea collection, Jubilee, ParadisJardin, Fleur and Soleil, features elements of botanical prints by Pierre-Joseph Redouté, one of the most noted botanical artists in history. A percentage of each sale benefits the horticultural and educational work of the NYBG, a leading non-profit organization renowned for its botanical research and conservation efforts.

Perfect as a Mother’s Day gift idea, an elegant wedding or shower assortment, or as a treat to oneself, each collection offers a sampling of Tea Forté’s vast array of luxury teas in a beautiful presentation.
