One thing I’m always completely stumped about is what to get all my travel obsessed friends when Christmas rolls around.
In a perfect world, I’d be able to send them on their next big adventure, but alas that is more complicated (and costly) than I can pull together, often last minute haha. So what do you give to the person who has everything, other than their next trip? You give them a taste of their bucket list, that’s what. In the form of delicious teas and teawares from the Grand Most Exotic T2 Tea Bazaar, inspired by the places they (or you) want to visit most. Read on for a few ideas!
You’ll know by now that Morocco is at the absolute top of my bucket list, and I think that’s the case for a lot of my friends who love markets, spices and textiles as much as I do. Which makes a tea gift inspired by Morocco the perfect fuel for their travel desires – a Moroccan tray, tea pot and tea cup, or collection of tea glasses is a great way to start. Top that off with some delicious teas – pomegranate, mint or Marrakech and perhaps the newest lonely planet you’ve got a gift that just keeps on giving. I’ll see you in Marrakech, and then perhaps the blue city of Chefchaouen?

The colours and flavours of India couldn’t be more magnetic and joyful, which makes it the perfect destination on which to base a travel inspired tea gift. Chai is a staple in India (in fact, it translates simply as ‘tea’), a spicy take on black tea that will have you (and your giftee) dreaming of visiting the Taj Mahal. Put together a glass teapot (complete with elephant motifs) a set of tea glasses and one or two chai blends, and you’ve got a gift that’s sure to inspire a beautiful bucket list trip. Next stop? The colourful streets of Jaipur!

Tea is a ritual in Japan, so it’s only right for you to pay homage to a trip there – whether real or imaginary – in the form of a collection of Japanese teas and teawares. The perfect gift to inspire that next trip. Matcha is where it’s at and so a collection of Matcha teas, a matcha flask and ceramic cup is a great start – add a box of matcha chocolate flakes to the mix and you’ve got a seriously delicious taste of Japan.
