Temperature Select Kettle

Did you know that certain types of teas are supposed to be brewed at specific temperatures? These types of kettles allow you to select the temperature that is best for the type of tea that you are brewing. They can also have other fun features like a keep-warm function or timed brews. Several brands make these kettles. I have linked the exact kettle that I own here.

Modern Teaware (Sara Miller London’s Chelsea Collection)

Sara Miller London’s Chelsea Collection with Portmeirion is my favourite teaware. From teacups and mugs to serving trays and teapots, there are many pieces in this stunning set. They are often adding new products to this collection like vases and champagne glasses. I started to collect Sara Miller’s Chelsea pieces a few years ago and I love to take it out when I’m hosting my friends and family at tea time.

Tea (obviously lol!)

There are many wonderful tea brands throughout the world. Before purchasing tea for your friend or loved one, take note of what kind of teas they usually drink. Are they a serious tea drinker who sips tea as part of a meditative tea ceremony? Do they drink herbal teas for various health benefits? Do they love a good tea latte made with spicy or black teas, like Chai or English Breakfast? These observations will help you figure out what direction to go on the busy map of worldwide tea drinking. I’ve linked a few of my favourites to my Amazon list.

Don’t be afraid to buy some local tea blends from your loved one’s favourite tea salon. They often make delightful in-house blends.

Make sure you check ingredient lists carefully if the gift recipient has any kind of food allergies, as tea blends can have many varied ingredients.

Travel Tumbler

I’ve tried many travel tumblers over the years, trying to find one that would keep my tea at the perfect temperature, not burn my hands, and not spill in my car. It’s also important that the mouthpiece is pleasant to use and that it is machine washable. Who wants to wash everything by hand? Not me. The Corkcicle brand makes my favourite tumbler and you can find it on Amazon or through a number of other retailers.
