These loose tea gift boxes provides maximum coziness to the tea lover on your list. Amazon is offering two versions of these heavenly sampler sets for up to 42 percent off today.

The Lotus sampler set includes small-lot, certified organic teas blends like Vanilla Pear, Orange Jasmine, Mountain Oolong, and Lemon Lavender—all packaged in individual infusers.

With the Warming Joy set, you get a more festive variety of holiday blends, like Rum Raisin Biscotti, Ginger Plum, Raspberry Ganache, and Winter Chai.

Each set comes in an embossed box with a ribbon tied around it—no gift-wrapping necessary. It even includes little bits of tea trivia as an added touch. You won’t find more perfect, no-fuss holiday hostess gift.

“My daughter gave my husband tea forte for his birthday and we are hooked! Their teas are so flavorful and interesting,” reported one happy shopper. “Their packaging is like unwrapping a mini present every time and the shape makes an excellent view. We love the Lotus sampler the best though you can't go wrong with any of them.”

This all-in-one tea-brewing beauty puts your cabinet full of mugs to shame. This insulated, double-wall ceramic tumbler includes a built-in, stainless steel infuser for brewing loose leaf tea—and because the infuser is extra fine, tea leaves will stay in the basket instead of landing in your cup. Just load up the basket, pour boiling water, place the lid on top, and let it steep.

Tea Forte’s Kati Cups are up to 30 percent off today only in three gorgeous, wintry patterns—which is perfect, because the cup will essentially become an everyday accessory!

“ I'm in LOVE!,” wrote one enamored customer. “The cup is beautiful!...My office kitchen is a fair distance from my desk so having the lid to transport my cup without spilling is a great feature and it works as a coaster for the strainer. This has brought me back to drinking tea daily!”

Another called it “an ingenious and well designed little brew system.”

This set has everything a beginner needs to dive into the world of loose leaf tea drinking—a Kati Cup with built-in infuser and a sweet snowflake pattern and a box of 10 individually packaged gourmet herbal and black tea blends including Harvest Apple Spice, Rum Raisin Biscotti, and Spiced Ginger Plum.

“We all know that loose tea is better, but making the transition isn't always as clear,” one loose tea convert wrote. “I own pots with baskets, had always used them with tea bags. I even have a tea for one pot which I used with steeps. But somehow this is what got me to use loose tea.”

“The Tea is so smooth and it tastes like I can only imagine Perfection would taste,” added another.
