Wife-and-husband teaheads who want to share our love of tea with you
Given your mother flowers in a Floral Teas Bundle! This loose leaf tea sampler is available in two sizes, with 3 or 6 teas. And for each size you can choose either a teaball infuser, or an adorable Tea for One teapot-and-cup set with strainer.
We offer 100% free shipping in the USA! For the mainland USA, the price you see is the price you pay. Shipping and packing takes 5-7 days from when you order.
The Small includes THREE 1oz loose leaf teas (1oz makes 12-14 cups of tea):
The Large includes SIX 1oz loose leaf teas (1oz makes 12-14 cups of tea):
Click on the teas to see their ingredients, antioxidant and caffeine levels, descriptions and reviews. Tulsi and Green Rooibos have especially high antioxidants, far more than even green tea!
Mesh Ball Infuser
Included in the Small and Large basic sets above (i.e. no teapot sets), our Medium stainless steel mesh ball infuser (2 1/2") is the perfect size for brewing loose-leaf tea in either a mug or a pot, and is dishwasher safe. Note: It is not included in the Teapot Sets, as those include our Stand-Alone Strainer instead!
Optional Tea-for-One Teapot + Stand-Alone Mesh Strainer:
For both sizes, you can also opt to include our Cheerful Tea-for-One Teapot with nesting teacup. These cuties are available in Evening Mulberry, Sunshine Yellow and Sea Green, and hold 9.7oz (286ml) which is one large cup of tea (about two of the cups in this set). It is dishwasher and microwave safe, has an in-built strainer in the spout, and reminds us of springtime! All teapot bundles include our Stand-Alone Mesh Strainer (with Hook and Drip Bowl) instead of a teaball, making tea brewing that much more elegant and catching every last bit of leaf. (Note: It has a small opening, so a standard teaball won't fit.)
All sizes and varieties are shipped unwrapped, so you can add your special touch. If shipping directly to your mother, add a gift message at checkout and we will include it!
Plus...every gift bundle sold plants one tree capturing 1 TON of carbon. Give your mother the thoughtful gift of tea, save money on shipping AND help the planet!

How many cups of tea is in a package? How do I store my tea?
We recommend using ~1-2tsp (heaped) of tea for a standard mug, though you may want more or less depending on your taste, infuser and water temperature! Therefore...
Always store tea in a dark and airtight container or cupboard (light degrades the tea removing the tasty goodness!). If stored correctly, our teas will retain their taste for up to three years. After that they are still safe to drink, but won't taste of much!
What does the ORAC score mean?
ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity and is a scale to gauge antioxidant units. The higher the ORAC value, the higher the antioxidant level.
Nut allergies: All of our products are handled, packed and processed in facilities that handles nuts and seeds. You can also check our ingredients list in the description tab of each tea or product to see if they have added/blended nuts, nut oils or other nut derived compounds.
Chamomile teas: A relatively low percentage of people are sensitive to chamomile and develop allergic reactions. People sensitive to ragweed and chrysanthemums or other members of the Compositae family are more prone to develop contact allergies to chamomile, especially if they take other drugs that help to trigger the sensitization (Srivastava, 2010).
