This gift was the capstone on a series of anniversary gifts. My wife loves tea and the ability to make your own blends and experiment was the perfect end to all of the gifts I got her. The presentation, the box, etc are all perfect when comparing price. I could have gotten her a 5-10 dollar bag of loose leaf tea, but the creativity these can bring out make it worth every penny. If you are a tea lover or know someone who is, I completely recommend the gift.
It was a unique gift that gives for days as my wife mixes her desired tea recipes. She loves it and comments about how did I find it and how different it is. It is also exactly as represented on the website.
I bought this for my husband on his birthday. We are both pretty big into teas, herbal and green mostly. He is a taster, he likes to experiment and mix and match different things just to see how they taste. This was perfect because now he can do that with his tea. I can't lie, he's made some interesting teas. I only wish he'd have made note of what he was using and how much that way recreating would be easier. We will very likely buy this again.
Both my friends were delighted with this gift. Each one said they were anxious to start experimenting with the different teas.
My boyfriend loves tea and spends a lot of time in Teavanna whenever we go to the mall to sample and try new flavors so when I came across this kit in the catalogue, I just knew it'd be the perfect gift for him along with a cool mug. He was absolutely ecstatic to receive this and unboxed it to steep a pot immediately. He really loves being able to mix and match different flavors and flowers with any of the green teas and has even used some of them in his other loose leaf teas. The different flowers all have different effects too, so he can really customize each cup or pot of tea to suit his needs should he need a little extra calming or boost in cold or hangover recovery. The teas themselves taste amazing and the flowers add a lot of flavor so you only need a pinch really, I can tell it's going to last quite a few months before we start running out. The storage box it comes in feels really good quality, I wasn't expecting it to be real metal, and the tins are super cute, when we do run out of tea, we can easily repurpose these to store craft supplies. The only thing I would change about this product is to maybe find other tins that have screw on lids. The lids on these ones seem secure enough just being placed on top, but I do wonder if a long drop would be enough for them to pop off and spill loose tea everywhere.
Love the unique gift ideas that Uncommon goods provides.

A very lovely gift for my mom. It couldn't be better. The quality of the teas and flowers is wonderful. We enjoyed creating our own blends together. The box is beautiful. Highly recommend.
My daughter in law loves tea. This was a perfect gift for her.
This was a gift for my boyfriend who loves every scent and taste in everything he eats and drinks. He really enjoys making his tea gongfu style where he controls the strength and taste of his tea and sometimes even wishes he could influence the taste more. This amazing kit does that for him. Sometimes, we just like to smell the herbs and tea in each tin. Its a fun experiment to keep our senses sharp. I strongly recommend for any tea lovers in your life.
Have ordered from Uncommon Goods before and have been quite pleased with the products, service, and reasonable prices.
