No one can deny the cuteness of teapots. I have two of these -- one for work and one for home. They're great for preparing loose teas without a mess.
Loose teas must be stored in air tight containers. The ones sold in stores are cute, but not cheap. I like giving gifts that someone would not normally buy for themselves. These Washi Tins are frivolous, but affordable, which make them a near-perfect gift! (This is a great DIY-opportunity too -- just buy some pretty paper and a cheap tin and have at it.)
Tea infusers are great for a quick fix when you only want a quick cup of tea.
With everyone looking to cut costs, a travel mug with a built-in infuser is a great way to get some affordable gourmet-on-go.
I am forever pulling random tea bags out of the bottom of my purse. I've been meaning to buy myself a tea wallet for ages.
We received this tea box from Crate & Barrel as a wedding gift and I love it.
