Christmas To A Tea
It’s the most wonderful time of year and, to help you celebrate, The Tea Makers of London has all the tea gifts you could wish for. From handblown glassware and carefully curated hampers to gift packs of single-origin loose-leaf sourced from the world’s finest estates, we’re making it easy to find the perfect present this festive season.
Whether it’s a statement teapot that will become a treasured family heirloom or an easy win for an office Secret Santa, all the items in our online store have been selected by us for their authenticity, quality and ability to enhance the tea-drinking experience.
Need some help choosing? Here are a few of our favourite tea gifting ideas to help you spread the good cheer.
Warm To Festive Teas
Nothing evokes Christmas more than the aromas of steam, fruit and spice drifting through the house… Happily, our luxury loose-leaf Festive Teas offer more joyful winter ingredients than you can shake a cinnamon stick at. For an on-theme stocking filler, you can’t go past our Christmas Tea, especially popular in December for its atmospheric mix of black tea, orange, cardamom and cloves.
But the appeal of our Festive Teas goes beyond Christmas Day. Instead of your usual party-season mulled wine, try wrapping your mittens around a healthier Chai of Madagascar or Assam Chocolate Spice – warming, delicious and with feelgood inclusions such as ginger, cocoa and orange.
Looking to counteract the overindulgence that goes with this time of year? Try a cup of Lemongrass & Ginger to soothe your digestion. And if you just want all-round cold-weather comfort, look no further than our Liquorice Root Tea, an aromatic brew full of anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting qualities.
The Gift Of Discovery
Want to introduce someone to the world of luxury loose-leaf tea? Or maybe you’re keen to give the tea lover in your life a taste from lesser known regions or smaller, heritage producers. Whoever you’re buying for, our Discovery Collection gift packs are the perfect way to treat loved ones to fresh new tea experiences.
Each beautifully presented box contains five exceptional teas, showcasing a range of flavours, regions and styles that fall within some of our benchmark tea categories. Choose from earthy Pu-Erh, vibrant Fruit Tea Blends, Rare & Limited, or Premium Black Tea collections, and many more. Whichever you choose, you can be assured that our tea experts have selected the very best examples of the style.
Christmas Tea Hampers
A Tea Hamper is the ultimate luxury tea gift, offering fans and novices alike the ideal all-in-one tea experience. Each stylishly packaged Tea Makers of London box set includes teaware, caddies of luxury loose-leaf teas and any essential accessories needed to create the optimal brewing experience.
If you want to make the everyday feel special, take a look at our Cornishware Gift Set For One, which includes the iconic striped ceramicware (in festive red, if you fancy) plus four caddies of classic teas: English Breakfast, Sencha, Supreme Earl Grey and Chamomile Blossoms.
At the other end of the scale you’ll find our Silver Linings Gift Set, comprising heat-resistant borosilicate glassware worthy of the most elegant tea ceremony, along with two of our most treasured rare teas: Anji Bai Cha and Dian Hong.
But if you want to give the most comprehensive tea treat, check out our Complete Loose Leaf Gift Hamper, which contains everything needed to brew the perfect cup.
Time For Teaware
Given that pretty much everyone has a chipped mug or cracked teapot lurking at the back of their cupboard, the festive season is the perfect time for a teaware upgrade.
Browse our extensive range of Teaware and discover everything from ceramic Chinese teapots and gaiwans to gorgeous tea glasses. Many of the items in our collection can easily be mixed and matched to stylish effect – perhaps you want to pair a French press (you can use it for coffee, too – we don’t mind!) with our ultra-durable double-walled glasses.
If you’re looking for something even more robust, our striped Cornishware range comes in teapots, mugs, cups and saucer sets plus jugs and sugar bowls – perfect for adding a homely touch to a kitchen (you could buy just a couple of pieces for starting a collection).
Shopping for the health conscious? Check out our Matcha Essentials, which include all you need to prepare this antioxidant-rich Japanese brew, including an authentic glazed bowl and bamboo whisk.
Luxury Tea Gifts For Less
Whether you’re looking to treat a die-hard tea fan to an expert-level accessory or open the eyes of a novice drinker to the world of authentic speciality teas, our extensive range covers all tastes and budgets.
Seeking a statement serving vessel? Check out our range of Gifts Under £50, which includes the artisanally made Silver Lining Glass Teapot with Strainer. Want to give the gift of convenience this Christmas?
See our Premium Teabag Chest Selections, which offer great value in our Gifts Under £30 category. And if you’re looking for elegant Stocking Fillers, one of our hand-crafted hourglass timers is a beautiful way to make sure every tea is brewed to perfection.
