November 15, 2022

by Kimberley K


The festive season is here and we know that you are bound to be shopping for at least one tea lover, be it family or friend. You’ll know doubt be wanting to get them a gift that is centered around tea and luckily we have lots of options to choose from when it comes to Christmas sips.

However, if you are wanting to shake things up a little bit and buy them something other than tea, why not get them some new teaware. Then you aren’t just guessing whether or not they would enjoy a certain tea and you’ll avoid any money or tea being wasted.

Don't Wait To Shop

Seasonal transit times can be a nightmare, so Adagio's got your back! .

The Secret to Good Tea...

... is in the water!

If you’re buying a gift for someone who already loves tea and happens to prefer traditional teas over blends and tisanes then the gift you should get them this Christmas is either the GraviTEA water purifier.

The GraviTEA is a quick, economical alternative to tap water and bottled water for better tasting tea. It removes up to 80% of chlorine and 70% limescale from tap water in seconds, dramatically improving the taste of the tea!

It's also very quick, removing impurities at twice the speed of similar products. Its 60-day filters (one included free) will save them 90% of the cost of bottled water and with that you’ll also be cutting down their usage of single use plastic. They'll be thanking you for years to come after giving them this as the difference that it makes is astounding.

Make it Special

We offer a variety of teapots with exquisite design that never go out of style.

From delicate Yixing clay teapots to hardy Glazed Iron, you're sure to find one to love.

We even have a beautiful handmade copper kettle to make the tea making experience something to remember and a treat for the eyes from start to finish.

The Ingenius Teapot

If you are shopping for someone who loves tea, but has yet to take the jump away from tea bags into the world of loose leaf teas, the best piece of teaware you could gift to them this Christmas would be our IngenuiTEA 2 teapot.

It is the most convenient teapot you will find anywhere, all they have to do is place their loose leaf tea into the maker to steep. Once it's done they simply place the teapot on top of their cup. This will cause a valve at the bottom to release the crystal-clear tea that flows down, while the mesh filter retains all the leaves with one of the best infusers on the market.

To top it all off, it is easy to clean and dishwasher safe!

By using this tea maker, it will ensure that from the very start of their loose leaf tea journey they are making the best cups of tea and starting off on the right foot. It is also the best tool for creating ice teas in the summer, so it’s a gift that will keep on giving.

An All in One Tea Experience

The VelociTEA tea maker is a revolutionary device that heats water and prepares tea at the push of a button.

Its elegant design pumps water from the base into the infuser basket, steeping tea leaves as it circulates. Ideal time and temperature settings for each variety of tea ensure a perfect strength for your chosen variety. When tea is ready, the kettle will keep it warm for 30 minutes to ensure that your last cup tastes as good as your first.

A temperature variable kettle is a must have for anyone who loves tea, but a priceless gift for those who love traditional teas. Just remember to regularly descale it to keep it running like new!

Blends and tisanes can be pretty forgiving most of the time, but it is not the same when it comes to traditional teas and water that is too hot could ruin the overall experience of the tea and likewise, water that is too cool could result in them not getting as much of their teas.

Pair the VelociTEA and GraviTEA together for the ultimate gift that will put the biggest smile on any traditional tea lover's face.

Tea on the Go

If the person you are looking to buy a gift for happens to already love tea and you know they are an avid traveler, why not choose the new ActiviTEA 2, which is our portable tea tumbler.

Available in two sizes, 12oz and 17oz, it has an even finer stainless steel infuser, light and portable borosilicate glass inside and out, a handle on the lid for ease of transport, and double-walled construction to keep your tea warm or cold longer.

No matter what kind of tea they drink, the infuser will work with them all and is such a handy tool to travel with. Pair this gift with our convenient portion packs for a completely mobile tea experience. Each portion holds the right amount of leaves to place inside the travel tumbler. Simply rip, pour, and steep, with nothing to measure or clean.

Run, don't Walk!

We hope this gift guide has helped you to find the perfect gifts for the tea lover in your life this Christmas without the added stress that usually comes with present buying and having to spend a long time narrowing down options and making decisions.

We can’t wait to see the tea gifts you put together for your loved ones this year and here's hoping that by the new year we will be welcoming a whole new group for tea lovers into the Adagio fandom and kick-starting their loose leaf tea journey in the best way possible.
