These tumblers are made with high-quality, double-wall stainless steel and vacuum insulation, ensuring your drinks stay cold or hot longer. Plus, you can choose from a variety of stylish holiday designs that are sure to turn heads and lift spirits. Find them in a store near you.
For the Collector
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Friends, we crafted a special-edition coffee and tea named after the gang’s favorite hangout spot, Central Perk. If you know someone who is a fan of the iconic show and has a slew of tea canisters displayed along their shelf, this gift is a no-brainer. This citrus berry black tea is mixed with cornflowers and lemon peel, delivering a sweet, yet woody taste. You might think this tea is made in New York considering its namesake, however, the leaves are hand-plucked at the foot of Mount Kenya, the second-highest mountain in Africa. If Chandler got a hold of this tea, you know he would say, “Could this tea BE any more exotic?”
For the Tea Latte Lover
No matter if it’s tea or coffee, froth is one of the essential ingredients for lattes. While you can make froth using a microwave or stove, this approach can result in a mess. Enter our electric one-touch milk frother. It easily whisks milk into a perfect hot or cold foam using magnetic stirring technology. Also, our frother is an ideal appliance to heat up milk without burning it.
For the Sweet Tooth
If you have a friend or relative who loves to add sugar to their tea, our signature powders can easily satisfy their sweet cravings. The French Deluxe™ Vanilla Powder, our best-selling variety, is a good place to start. After all, we use this powder to craft the tea lattes you enjoy in our stores. You can also go the festive route and choose our Hazelnut Powder, which gives the tea a sweet taste with subtle earthy notes. Have a chocoholic in your life? Gift our Special Dutch™ Chocolate Powder, the ultimate flavor enhancer. Best of all, our powders can be used not only for beverages but also in a variety of baking recipes.
For the Modern Tea Drinker
Some steep a teabag into a cup of hot water, while others opt for the traditional teapot method. In recent times, more tea drinkers are switching over to single-serve tea brewers to get their fix. That’s why we made our CBTL Single Serve tea maker, which can also be used for coffee and espresso. With a touch of a button, you can enjoy a freshly brewed cup of tea in seconds. This is an excellent gift for the on-the-go tea drinker who is always strapped for time.
For Capsule/K-Cup® Users
If you’re gifting our CBTL Single Serve tea maker or know someone who has one, our tea capsules are sure to be a hit. Each capsule has our patented internal double filtration system that ensures optimal flavor and balanced extraction. Our Chai capsules are hand blended with high-quality exotic spices and botanicals, while our English Breakfast tea variety is a smooth, rich black tea with a medium body and brisk character. Additionally, we offer Darjeeling black tea and Jasmine green tea K-Cup® pods.
For the Discerning Palate
The Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearl Tea, our most premium tea, is made for true aficionados. It’s made by carefully plucking a pair of young tea leaves and one plump bud, then hand-rolling them together into a tight pearl packed with flavor. The pearls are then scented with young jasmine flowers. The result is a full-bodied, fragrant green tea delivering a fresh, smooth taste.
