Get ready to wrap up your holiday shopping so fast, that you’ll have extra time to hit the gym and rock those sequined party pants!


When it comes to gift ideas for families, we think the perfect gift is a tea chest that can be passed down to future generations, along with the memories of selecting teas from the chests and sharing them together.

  • Heirloom Tea Chest. Our bamboo version gives a slightly modern twist on a classic tea chest. Comes filled with nine types of teas for a total of 90 tea bags.

After being recommended by a friend, I bought the Earl Grey Supreme ,The most enchanting thing about this tea for me is its rich aroma of dry tea leaves. When it first meets water, the mist brings out a gentle fragrance, making it very soothing to drink. I really like it.

Love these! I know the perfect compliment to all of these tea gifts is Tea Jams handcrafted jam, infused with all of Harney & Sons Tea! They also go great with the shortbread cookies that are in some of the sets already!
