Tea might very well be the healthiest drink there is. Whether your favorite tea is green, white, black, oolong, or herbal, the health benefits of tea are praised constantly by medical experts. Even without the health benefits, tea is a delight all on its own. There’s possibly nothing more relaxing than kicking back after a long day with a steamy mug of tea. And if you’re looking to kick your daily soda habit, you can always get your morning jolt of caffeine from a cup of black or green tea.
With so many tea drinkers worldwide, it’s hard to go wrong with a tea-inspired gift. From one tea drinker to another, here’s a list of my favorite 20 tea products your gift recipient should love to try.
