Whether they are just starting college or joining the real world, every new grad should enter the next stage of their life armed with a tea brewing kit that will help them make their new house feel like home. Give the tea brewing essentials below to your new grad and remind them that a good cup of tea can help solve anything that life will throw their way.
Electric Tea Kettle
Although we love traditional stovetop kettles, we know that the living conditions of a new grad are far from glamorous. While they may not have a stove to steep on, they will most definitely have an outlet to plug into. That’s why we recommend purchasing an electric kettle like the Bonavita Mini Electric Travel Kettle, which is great for small spaces like dorm rooms and studio apartments, or the Cuisinart Perfectemp®, which is our most efficient option.
Tea Filter or Strainer
To a novice tea drinker, loose tea can be intimidating. Our Brushed Stainless Steel tea strainer is a popular, durable option that helps make tea prep a breeze. If you are looking for something with a little more character, we recommend one of our long or short handled silver plated tea strainers. We even offer reusable filters for Keurig® single cup brewers to make tea brewing even more convenient for the always-on-the-go grad.
Tea Cup or Mug
For a new grad the mug you give them in this tea kit may be the only piece of dishware they own, so don’t forget it! Choose a mug or teacup that reflects your grad’s style the most and include it in your gift. For an added bonus, give a travel mug they can use on their way to class or work.
Tea, Of Course
No beginner tea brewing kit would be complete without a tin or two of tea. Include a tin of your favorite blend or give them one of our best sellers. These teas are always a hit and would make a happy addition to any tea gift.
You wouldn’t leave home without your tea, and neither should your grad. Give them a tea kit of their own and they won’t have to. Running short on time? We have a selection of ready-made gifts that any new grad would love to receive. Congratulations to the graduating class, and good luck!
