For any traveler who misses drinking their daily tea while on the road, this collapsible tea kettle is the perfect companion. It collapses to easily fit it in a suitcase and is great for hotel rooms. Plus, you never know how many germs are living on the hotel coffee maker.
There is a tea for everything — to feel refreshed in the morning, to help you sleep at night, to soothe the throat, to curb that sweet tooth, etc. Tea bags can pile up, and sometimes it's hard to find the tea you want. This compact tea organizer looks small, but it holds more than 100 bags, and the clear, removable compartments make it easy to find and access the exact tea you want.
Brew iced tea at home easily with this cold brewer that has a built-in filter. All it takes is adding loose leaf tea and cold water and steeping in the fridge for 3-6 hours. The built-in filter prevents tea leaves from falling into the cup when you pour the tea. It's that easy.
For loose-leaf tea lovers, an infuser is a must-have. There are several infusers to choose from out there, but I doubt you will find one as lovable and functional as this dinosaur. Fill the belly with loose leaf tea, place in a cup and pour the tea. The dinosaur head looks adorable as it peeks out of your cup, and you can use the neck as a handle to easily remove it from your cup.
The double glass layer of these stylish teacups keeps your beverage hot or cold for longer and feels comfortable to the touch (no more burned fingers). Plus, I love clear glass teacups because I can easily see how long to steep loose leaf tea to the desired color and potency.
You may think frothed milk is reserved only for coffee drinks, but your tea lover friend may still want the frothy goodness of milk. Enter the tea latte (We recommend Bobby Flay's recipe.)
