Home Decor or Gift Idea: Holiday Tea Box
By Laura Bray
When I go to a fancy restaurant, I love to order tea with my dessert because the waiter usually brings a lovely box, filled with teas, for me to choose from. I wanted to recreate the same feeling for some of my friends, so I will be gifting them with these lovely tea boxes. It’s a lovely way to store favorite tea bags and their guest will be very impressed when presented with their choice of teas after dinner. Although I created the box in Christmas colors, I think it could be used throughout the winter months. Of course, you can customize the theme of the box to your gift recipient’s interests as well.
