We all have that friend. The one with cupboards full of loose leaf and boxes full of bags. The one with a million stains on their counters and tables from tea bags left too long. The kind who loves nothing more than opening a canister to get a sniff while the kettle boils. So when you're looking for a gift for the tea lovers in your life, why not embrace their passion with the same gusto! We've got 12 ideas that you can make or buy that will send them running for hot water.
