Herbal Tea Gift Ideas


I’d like to share with you a simple, affordable, and fun way to give the people on your list this year the gift of healing, peace, and joy. Herbal tea makes a great gift because it carries the energy of healing and the introduction to a wonderful part of life that many people haven’t yet discovered. Each year I create herbal tea gifts for many of the people on my list, and I’d like to share the how-to with you here.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Bulk herbal tea: chamomile, lemon balm, green, rose hips, and blends all make great options
  • Several small to medium sized canning jars with lids
  • Reusable tea bags or stainless steel tea balls
  • string and tags (optional)


Here’s how to make the herbal tea gift jars…

  1. Clean out the jars and dry them completely. Any moisture left in the jars may cause the herbs to mold.
  2. Scoop in the dried herbs. You can either create a blend of your own, find a recipe online, make the jar from one type of tea, or even layer various herbal tea types to offer your loved one a selection over the coming weeks.
  3. Seal the jar tightly and add a tag explaining what tea is inside and how to brew it (1 tsp. tea to 8oz. hot water, steep for 5 minutes)
  4. You may also include a package of reusable tea bags or an inexpensive stainless steel tea ball. Many crafty folks are able to add charms and beads to their tea balls making them a truly unique gift.

Herbal tea makes a great gift, and it’s easy to incorporate it into a gift basket that includes mugs, a tea towel, a tea ball, or even a tea kettle.

Happy Holidays!
