The air is nippy, the days are short, and the shops bedecked with red, green and gold. Yes, it really is that time of the year again.

If there’s a tea-lover in your life, why not treat them to a tea-themed gift this Christmas? Whether you’re looking for a stocking-filler, or something more substantial, we can help you find the perfect present.

Here are 10 suggestions to get you started:

Tea hampers: available in a range of sizes, our hampers are always a festive hit. Take a look at our themed hampers, such as the Green Tea, Rare Tea, Classic English or Chai Selection. Or, for a personal touch, why not create a bespoke gift? Simply give us some ideas about what you’d like to include, let us know your budget, and we’ll do the rest.


Tea-for-one: a teapot, cup and saucer in one, our tea-for-one sets are both attractive and convenient. Designs include the pretty Emmaand Elina, the bold Black Elephantand Jared, and the understated but elegant Lucasand Melly.

Tea caddies: an essential for any tea aficionado, the tea caddy protects and preserves the delicate flavours of loose-leaf tea. We sell all manner of styles and designs, but think that the Yokohama, Scandic and Winter Friends sets make particularly pretty Christmas gifts.

Cast iron Jing Tea set
: this classic Japanese-style tea set combines elegance with practicality. Its cast-iron design and enamelled interior will stand the test of time, while its striking appearance makes it an attractive addition to any kitchen. The set comprises a teapot, trivet and two cups, and is available in green or blue.

Seasonal teas: there’s nothing like the taste of warming winter flavours to invoke the festive spirit. Our selection of seasonal teas offers just that – making them the ideal stocking-filler. Choose from blends such as Ronnefeldt Christmas Surprise: a black Ceylon tea flavoured with seasonal spices, marzipan and cinnamon, or Ronnefeldt Winter Darjeeling, with its hints of orange and cocoa. If you’re looking for a larger gift, try the Christmas Tea Hamper, or the Ronnefeldt Winter 6 Tea Selection.

Tea Couture: take some of the finest loose-leaf teas from around the world, house them in beautifully decorated golden caddies, and there you have the Tea Couture range. The teas include the spicy Masala Chai, the aromatic Splendid Spring Darjeeling, and the mouthwatering Rooibos Chocolate Truffle. If you’re struggling to choose, the Catwalk Caddies hamper contains six of our favourites.

Teaeve: the Teaeve range of insulated mugs is especially designed for loose-leaf tea. The mugs are double-walled and have ceramic lids – helping to keep tea warmer for longer. What is more, each comes with a removable stainless steel filter to enable effortless tea brewing. The pretty designs include Cherry Blossom, Green Grass, Little Geishaand Beautiful Things 


Flowtea: based on a traditional Asian design, these beautiful insulated tea glasses allow you to brew and drink your tea on the go. Simply infuse your tea using the integral filter, then allow the double-walled glass and neoprene sleeve to keep it warm. Each features a charming motif on the inner glass layer – choose from Flowtea Charme, Flowtea Cherry Blossomor Flowtea Geisha.


Teabag wallets: Another superb stocking-filler, our attractive handmade Teabag Walletsand Embroidered Teabag Walletsprovide the perfect vessel for teabag transportation. Each can hold up to eight teabags, and comes complete with four Ronnefeldt Teavelopes.

Available in wood, acrylic or metal, they come pre-filled with a selection of teas and infusions. And if you can’t find a combination you like, simply choose an empty display box and fill it with teas of your choice.
