If you lucked out this holiday season, somebody showed you love by sending you an Art of Tea gift card. Not going to lie, we’re a little jealous. There are so many amazing teas in store for you!
So where should you start? We’ve picked out our 5 favorite buys for anybody with an Art of Tea gift card burning a hole in their pocket.
You can’t drink tea if you don’t have a cup! We recommend the Curve Teacup for no-fuss brewing. This adorable ceramic teacup includes a mesh strainer and lid, so you can easily toss in leaves and steep. The cup itself is microwave and dishwasher safe. Just make sure you take out the metal insert before microwaving or dishwashing.
Award Winning Tea Sampler
Tea’s the product we’re known for, and these are the ones we do best! Try four of our most highly-revered teas and test out our patented filter bags with this diverse sampler pack. This set of teas includes Green Pomegranate, a fruity green tea that tastes great both hot and iced; Tuscany, a minty and floral white tea blend; 9:00 PM, a caffeine-free Rooibos; and Passionfruit Jasmine, a black and green tea blend that also serves as a fantastic iced tea.
Perfect Tea Spoon and Tea Timer
Whoever said “There’s no such thing as perfect” clearly never used the Art of Tea Perfect Tea Spoon and Perfect Tea Timer. We’ve figured out the exact amount of tea you need for an 8 oz. cup of tea and this spoon is the way to scoop it! This stainless steel spoon falls between a teaspoon and tablespoon to help you brew deliciously consistent cups of tea.
Once you’ve measured out the perfect scoop of tea, don’t oversteep it! Oversteeping tea can give unwanted bitterness or astringency, so we suggest using the Perfect Tea Timer to steep your tea perfectly. Ranging from three to five minutes, the perfect tea timer is great for timing almost every tea’s suggested steep time. When brewing a black or oolong tea, you can even select how strong of a brew you’d like, ensuring every cup is steeped to your satisfaction.
Of course, you could always just use your gift card to buy our most popular product: Tea. Choose from hundreds of teas, tisanes, blends, and blooms and find your next tea obsession.
