    1. A sweater hugger for your favorite mug so it can be as warm and fuzzy as you are whenever you take a sip of Earl Grey. Plus you won't burn your sensitive fingers while you hold it!

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "It was super cute and whimsical. I think it's practical for my 70-year-old mother who has sensitive hands." —Rebecca

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $4.99 (originally $15).

    2. A bottom-dispensing teapot to take your fancy-ass loose leaf tea basically anywhere, anytime.

    Amazon

    It has a mesh filter to keep the leaves from the rest of the beverage, and when you're ready to drink, place it over a mug, and the tea will drain from the bottom. It's also dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "This has become my go-to single cup tea brewing solution. The simplicity of it is just delightful. Add tea, add water, steep, set on top of the mug and watch the steeped tea flow out the dispensing hole in the bottom. In particular, makes it that much easier to do further cups off the same leaves. I know there are fancier options out there and they may honestly be better. But this product for this price has me sold." —Bryan

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    3. An incredibly useful iced tea tumbler so you can make a marvelously strong beverage with loose leaf or tea bags — and then take it on the go without spilling in your bag!

    Macy's

    It's leak-proof, has a flip top, and can brew your tea in minutes! Just add your tea at the bottom and your ice in the separate container!.

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $28.99.

    4. A pack of refillable Keurig-compatible filters so you can have a perfect amount of your favorite green tea without even trying.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I didn't realize that you could use your own coffee grounds and tea leaves with your Keurig. Such a game changer and more eco-friendly! I will even stick a tea bag in one and just use hot water from my Keurig and there it is — instantly brewed tea! Amazing." —Michele L.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.45 (for a pack of four).

    5. A naught-tea mug because even though you love some steeped leaves, that doesn't mean that you don't like to get down and ~dirty~.

    Society 6

    And by down and dirty I mean adding some cream and honey!

    Get it from A Little Leafy on Society 6 for $15.99.

    6. An aesthetically pleasing glass teapot with a stainless steel infuser to take all your adult tea time to the next level.

    Amazon

    It has a micromesh stainless steel filter for loose or blooming teas.

    Promising review: "I have made tea in this pot daily, and find it to be quite durable. This tea pot can be heated directly over the flame on the stove or by heating the water separately and adding to the pot. I am very happy with my purchase and recommend it for all tea lovers. It isn't as fragile as it looks." —MMS

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    7. A pack of Matcha green tea powder that'll give you the smooth, calming feeling you absolutely want on your weekends off.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this product in hopes of boosting my energy levels naturally. The benefit I was not expecting was the increase in endurance and stamina during my hot yoga workouts. This tea has taken my practice to a new level. I immediately ordered the larger size after several days of consistently using it." —Teri

    Get it from Amazon for $9.45.

    8. A ceramic teapot with the most positive quote you can show your friends to let them know your house is a safe space.

    10. A whimsical whale tea infuser to comfortably swim in warm water, transforming it into your favorite beverage almost instantly.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "So cute. It works great but I mostly got it because it's so cute and it's easy to lift in and out of my cup. I have a thing for whales." —Jackie S. Adams

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great box if you are a tea drinker. There are eight different slots to store your teas. I have mine organized according to medicinal purposes. As long as you are leaving the box on your counter, it is being used by adults, and you don't stack anything on top of it, it should last you. I've had mine for over year now." —J. Modery

    Get it from Amazon for $11.53.

    13. A set of disposable tea bags that'll be amazing for sipping and spilling while you're on-the-go, OR if you're super impatient and can't wait for it to steep!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect! They are great for brewing a good cup of tea or coffee, also to fill with herbs or spices and add to your foods when cooking, but don't want to leave in. You can also fill with your favorite aromatic herb and put in your linen drawer." —Gillie Bean

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95.

    14. A set of snail tea bag holders so the string of your favorite steep doesn't go anywhere near your drink.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Not only are these little buggers adorable they are very effective. I keep one at work and at home and keep the others as back ups. It's very convenient to not be drinking the string anymore." —Lee-Anne

    Get them from Amazon for $1.94 (for a pack of 10).

    15. A tea-rex pouch to show everyone just how much you adore tea — and to carry all of your tea packets just in case you need a mid-day pick up.

    Basically, you set your alarm like you would any other clock, and this bad boy will boil your cup of water right before the alarm rings so you can begin the day with your tea fix!

    Promising review: "I love this tea maker I like the fact that it's so unique — there are no other tea makers that have an alarm clock built in on the American market — and the fact that the clock has an adjustable light so you can see the time without the light actually keeping you awake!" —Daniel Blintley
