18 Father’s Day Tea Gifts That Dads Would Treasure


Fathers and stepdads tend to be hard to buy for, and as a result, they end up with generic gifts of clothing, books, and CDs.

Does your father drink tea? Would you describe him as a tea lover, adventurous, and willing to try new ideas?

Tea is a versatile, practical, and affordable theme for Father’s Day or any gift-giving occasion – birthday, Christmas, etc. – for dads, grandpas, and every man in your life you want to get a gift for.  You can tailor the gift to his preferences and your budget.

This Father’s Day tea-otally surprise and delight him with a tea-related gift!


A teapot allows you to brew tea for one or two or a crowd. Teapots come in all shapes and sizes and reflect the cultural traditions and habits of their origins.

1. Handmade Yixing Clay Teapot

Dads like cute things too, and this clay teapot has a tactile rounded shape with a stubby spout and is perfect for brewing black, oolong, and pu-erh tea. You can use it for other teas like green, white, or herbal.

Yixing clay (also called purple sand) produces remarkable teapots in a traditional style dating back to the fifteenth century in China.

The clay absorbs some of the tea, so a tea enthusiast will only brew one type of tea in the clay teapot. Don’t wash it with soap and water, simply rinse with clean water – preferably hot water – and let it air dry.

The Yixing clay teapot builds up a coating that contributes to the flavor profile of the tea. If your father is devoted to one type of tea, then this clay teapot will enhance his enjoyment and will improve with regular use.

The overall design and color of this teapot make it a suitable gift for younger dads – new dad, your son, son-in-law – or perhaps even a vegan dad.

2. White Mud Tea Kettle

A tea kettle is a vessel for heating water to the correct temperature for brewing the perfect cup of tea. An elegant classic white tea kettle can heat water for a teapot or teacup, or it can serve as a teapot.

Combine this beautiful white mud tea kettle with a heating plate, and you have the ideal addition to a corner of a man cave, office, or workshop. When it’s time for a tea break, your Dad can do it in style.

White is a stylish and timeless color for working men – so if you’re the wife buying your husband a tea gift or you’re getting a gift for a tea drinker who also has white as one of his favorite colors, then this will be a fitting gift.

3. Traditional Chinese Designer Teapot with Engraving

If you are buying your Dad a teapot for Father’s Day, this traditional square-shaped teapot is elegant and stylish with a masculine vibe – thus perfect for older dads, grandpa, and veterans as well.

Does a square teapot influence the quality of the tea? Some green teas need a short brewing time to avoid bitterness. Rolled Oolong teas need a broader pot to give them room to expand and release their flavor.

If your Dad has an enquiring mind gift him this elegant teapot and set him a puzzle – does the shape of the teapot affect the taste of the tea?


4. Chinese Glazed Gaiwan

A gaiwan is a combination of tea brewing vessel and cup. This stylish three-part set – lid, cup, and saucer is the ideal way to enjoy a high-quality loose-leaf tea.

If your father knows not only the type of tea but where it grows and how it is processed to produce the flavor profile, he will love a gaiwan for his tea-drinking pleasure.

Even if your Dad is not a tea obsessive, a stylish gaiwan combined with a quality green tea is still a gift he can enjoy.

Oriental food tastes better with chopsticks, and green tea is best when brewed to taste in a gaiwan because you experience the whole range of flavors from the leaves.

Tea Mugs & Tumblers

For regular tea drinking, the fuss-free mug has replaced tea sets. There is still a place for tea sets, but quick refreshment while rushing through a hectic day means a tea mug is the drinking vessel for most people.

It’s also an inexpensive but useful mug for the occasion if you’re looking to get a simple tea-themed gift for your new stepdad or uncle.

6. Personalized Travel Mug

A personalized travel mug with durable laser engraving is even better! You can choose to have it personalized with Dad, Daddy, Papa, Father, or Grandpa, on top of any personalized message that you want to add.

A sleek, practical design in classic black or white makes a superb useable gift for Father’s Day, or on any other special occasion you wish to show him how much you care.

The addition of a heartfelt sentiment or funny saying will make him think of you every time he uses it. And this gift will be used regularly.

7. Tea Tumbler with Sleeve and Tea Infuser

Cold-brewed tea is a summer sensation that contains fewer tannins, less bitterness, and is sweet and refreshing. Flower teas and pine oolongs are ideal for cold infusion, but any tea can be cold-brewed for a refreshing drink that is naturally low caffeine.

An infuser bottle like this model is the ideal gift to start your Dad on this refreshing journey.

The cork wraparound makes it easy and comfortable to hold with plenty of grip. It is portable and perfect for travel, gym, and days out.

Cold-brewed tea is so refreshing that many people prefer to drink it all year round for the taste as well as the health benefits.

Tea Sets

There are times when a tea set is the only way to serve tea. A man who uses a tea set demonstrates that he pays attention to details and has refined tastes.

A Father’s Day gift of a tea set indicates that you appreciate that your father is a man who values the best things in life and likes to surround himself with beautiful objects. A tea set allows you to share the relaxing ritual of preparing and serving tea with your Dad.

At work, it is crucial to make a good impression on your visitors.

Leaf Tea – Packaged as Gifts

An excellent strategy for Father’s Day gifts is to present a product that is consumable – like tea. It doesn’t sit on a shelf gathering dust because you use it, enjoy it, and then it is gone.

Additionally, if you choose to celebrate Father’s Day with a tea party, any of these selection gift boxes will provide the beverage of choice during the event.

Say Something Meaningful

Writing your Father’s Day card is your opportunity to express your thoughts and appreciation for your Dad. Sometimes you prefer to express yourself with humor and sometimes with a more sentimental turn of phrase.

If you are going for sentimental messages, you could go with something like – “I bring you tears, you bring me tea, a hanky and teach me to smile” for either your father or grandpa.

You can use the classic saying from Chaim Potok – “Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things.” A great sentiment to share with your husband on Father’s Day.

Finally, there is the classic – “A cup of tea and family make the perfect blend.”

Father’s Day, at its core, is about family bonds lubricated with tea and love.
