Good Taste: chocolate tea bag tags



Well, the weather was turning to fall and I thought some hot tea would be nice. But then we had a sudden last burst of summer. So let me start off this post with some advice – don’t make these chocolates on a hot day and try to take pictures of them next to a hot cup of tea. Both you and the chocolates will be melting before long.

Etcetera: tea bag gift box

What is it about a cup of tea that’s so soothing? I’m not sure if it’s the preparation, the pretty cup or the aroma. I think it’s all of the above which is why tea makes such a nice gift.


Homemade tea bags are easy to make. You don’t even need to know how to sew. Just cut out fabric squares - you can use muslin or cheesecloth. The squares should be about 5-6 inches. Spoon the loose tea in the middle of the square, roll up and tie with baker’s twine or cotton thread.

Don’t forget to add a tag to the end of the string. You can make the tag out of anything since this part doesn’t touch the water. I’ve seen buttons and all kinds of cutouts. I went with a simple tag that includes a tea leaf image and “enjoy” in a pretty font.


You can package up the tea bags in a jar, tin or box.
I used a kraft box and added another tag to the top.

That’s it. Orange Spice Tea all ready to gift.
