Making Herbal Tea With Special Touches

Making herbal tea is a daily thing for our family. We enjoy making herb teas using my love of blending many different herbs. But the best part is making it all special especially when I give it as a gift.

One thing I love to do is make individual tea bags full of my special blends, but it is hard to find a tea bag that will work so I decided to create my own. 

I decided to use coffee filters or Bulk Herb Store has some too. Sewing makes it fun as you can add colored thread to make it match a gift or a theme. Thinking about all this Viking stuff around here, purple thread tea bags would be fun!

Stamping is another added love so getting out stamps to go with the persons personality or if it’s a special occasion like a birthday.  I of course used our touch of simple ranch life  which became my platform to make the tea tags. I hope you will find it just as fun and your special touches will be a delight for the receiver.

Let me know what you think by making a comment below. I enjoy seeing the ideas as well as ways to improve my own ideas. 

SO…here ya go!

Get a filter and cut your rectangle cutting out the folded part

You can use a pre made one Bulk Herb sells for your base

Make sure to cut 2

Time to sew

Only sew 3 sides keeping top open

Fill your tea bag and sew top shut. Now fold corners together

Place your string I used 2 colors, under your corner folds

Have string poke out at top and leave dangled


Now for the fun part! Stamping time! Grab some fun background paper and favorite stamps  stamp and cut out. Final step, tape to your dangling string. Done! I am sure it looks adorable. You can go into Amazon and search favorite stamps if you are not into western. 

Here are some I did. 
Think how wonderful it would be to get a get well card with a fun box full of tea bags with herbs that will help whatever their illness.

Very special and  a homemade touch!

OH I love it…enjoy making some and giving them as gifts! Again, let me know by making a comment.
God’s blessings,

Love deeper, talk sweeter,
