Personally, I’m a coffee lover and have to work to understand people who aren’t? I mean, how can you not like coffee? All jokes aside, I do enjoy a really good cup of tea and enjoy both new and traditional flavors. The artistry of tea making and consumption is definitely to be appreciated. It’s truly one of the most beautifully serene way to appeal to the palette. Only fitting that this drink originated in China, a culture known for ceremony and respect. For the people in your life who really enjoy a good cup, these are some of the best gift ideas for tea lovers under $25.

Want to splurge?
If you want a gift option that is a little higher on the price range but won’t put you into debt, consider these beautiful pieces of art:
Soul Maté Gourd
This beautiful gourd is hand-carved and hand-painted for the stunning enjoyment of Yerba Mate tea. Yerba Mate is a tea from the Indigenous peoples of South America. It is described as having ” the strength of coffee, the health benefits of tea, and the joy of chocolate.” In addition to antioxidants found in tea in general, most drinkers enjoy it for the health benefits of mental and physical energy boosts, infection protection, weight loss, and more.
Original connoisseurs drank the tea from carved gourds. Soul Maté Yerba Co. has taken the natural gourds and turned them into minimalist works of art, all while preserving the original experience of enjoying the tea. This set comes with the gourd, a Bombilla (strainer/straw), and a 4oz bag of Yerba Maté tea. Cost: $49.
Matcha Tea Brew Set
Matcha tea is a green tea that comes in powder form. It has tremendous health properties, which include cancer-fighting and boosting brain function. Typical preparation involves using a whisk to blend it. So, can you use a plain whisk to make the tea? Of course. But is it anywhere as stunning as the whisk set? Not even close.
For a matcha tea drinker or someone who wants/needs to start drinking it for health benefits, this gift set is simply stunning. And for such an inexpensive price, this is a beautiful gift and gesture to give someone you love. The gift set includes the mixing bowl, bamboo whisk, and ceramic whisk holder. Find it here on Etsy. Cost: $29.
