Why Tea is Great for Gifting

Gifting season is here and you might be wondering what you should be gifting to your family and friends. Oftentimes we look forward to it with excitement, and other times we stress about what we will give as gifts. We want our presents to be valued and welcomed rather than forgotten or generic.


For all ages and scenarios, the concept of giving presents has existed. Tea is an excellent present for any occasion, whether it is for a friend, coworker, or family member. It's a lovely way to express gratitude, celebrate a special occasion, or simply show your compassionate side.


Why is it a good idea to give tea? Well, if you really want to know… keep on reading.


Tea: a magnificent token of nature that provides so many benefits, hidden behind colourful tea caddies and vibrant words of holiday festivities. We've discovered it to be a gifting classic, particularly popular around Christmas, and we're left wondering why so many people prefer to give tea. For us, tea is like a confident and humble visitor to your home, with a palatable personality that is never too loud and is comfortable with first-time encounters. While it is a crowd-pleaser, tea is a very personal present and a path into one's heart at its best.


1. Gift of health

Since its discovery hundreds of years ago, the Chinese have been drinking tea to provide wellness comfort. Fortunately, a recent series of research has pushed tea into western recognition as being great for our health. Antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and much more are present within, as well as up to 22k other health benefits, according to Taoist legend. What matters is that you consume a variety of high-quality tea on a daily basis and incorporate it into your healthy-living routine.


2. Gathering people

"Would you like to join me for tea?" 

Tea has traditionally been associated with the spirit of invitation, and it is a typical cause for people to congregate at one's home. Chileans do it simply with their 'once' occasion, which brings in a meeting of family and friends to discuss their day. Evening snacks consist of free-flowing tea and a feast of cold-cut meats, cheeses, cake, and always a dish of mashed avocado. 

"Would you mind coming around once?"

Taking cues from this treasured tradition, we appreciate the idea of gifting tea to provide a cause to gather. In Singapore, instead of going out for high teas, why not grab yourself a set of tea with different flavours and enjoy it with your preferred company at home? That sounds like the perfect high tea to us.


3. Corporate Gifting

Everyone enjoys a distinct flavour and type of tea, and presents can range from simple to sophisticated. A corporate gift is an excellent method to engage employees, coworkers, and clients. Birthdays, festivals, service and loyalty awards for employees and business partners, "job well-done" gifts, weddings, maternity leave, retirement, and many other occasions may fill the corporate calendar. Corporate presents can include a tasty treat, a personalised item, E-Gift cards, or an event. Tea, on the other hand, is a great choice for a workplace gift because everyone enjoys it. Not to mention that we have an excellent choice of tea as well as having exquisite packaging that’s perfect for gifting!


Well now that you know that tea would be a perfect gift for any occasion you can think of, where could you possibly find ‘the one’ straight for gifting? Fret not, we’ve got you covered!
