1. It’s warm
I don’t know about you, but just seeing a package of tea helps warm me up. The cold temperatures this time of year make a hot cup of tea a wonderfully welcome gift that isn’t enjoyed just once, but for several cups to come!
2. It can help digest all those holiday treats
While we all revel in the home baked, sugar loaded treats abundant during this season, overeating can cause a lot of uncomfortable feelings. Teas contain both antioxidant & anti-inflammatory properties, which can ease the discomfort of indigestion, nausea and fullness.
3. It’s inexpensive, but of high value
It’s hard to find gifts these days under $20 that will truly be appreciated by the receiver and not make you look like a cheapskate. But for far less than $20, tea is an inexpensive option that shows you thought beyond the standard box of cookies, popcorn tin and cheesy ornament. It gives you the freedom to choose the flavor (standard black and green or full of exotic spices?), quality (whole leaf? organic?), and style (loose or teabag?) of your gift; so you can match your gift to the tastes and styles of the recipient.
4. It doesn’t have to be wrapped
Generally tea comes already wrapped in a beautiful package, whether it’s a pouch, a box, or tin, there are plenty of beautifully packaged teas out there that require nothing more than a tag before being slid under the tree. They also make a great addition to gourmet gift baskets or tied to the top of a box of teaware.
5. It’s versatile
Tea doesn’t discriminate between old or young, male or female, rich or poor. Your teenage niece will like it and your 80 year old grandpa will too. It’s a great gift for your neighbors and your spouses’ boss. It works for someone you deeply love & for co-workers you don’t deeply love. Secret Santa, stocking stuffer, luxurious gift basket, teacher gift, host gift, gift exchange, it works for all of these and more!
