For Supplies & written Directions keep reading:

Supplies:
All you need for this gift is:
– Bulk bag of your favorite loose-leaf tea or my Rose Tea (recipe below).
– Plastic ornaments – Dollar store & Hobby Lobby, my 2 favorite places for craft supplies
– Ribbon (scraps work great)
– Small cup to set ornament in while filling, piece of parchment paper for filling ornament, and handmade or store-bought tag.
Printable tags here, made just for you, to make gift making even easier 🙂

Directions:
1. Fill ornament with loose leaf tea, using a piece of rolled parchment it works like a funnel to get your tea into the ornament easily. See the video.
A plastic funnel does fit into the ornament yes, but it does not funnel the tea in as you would think (ask me how I know :), the tea just becomes static & clings to the funnel….at least to my plastic funnel, that’s been my experience. The parchment rolled as a tube however works great! ❤️
2. Replace your ornament top back in place and tie-on ribbon and tag!
You can also fill these with lavender buds for tea drinking, if you have a friend who enjoys Lavender tea.

This is a fun gift idea for giving to friends that love gardening & enjoy sipping tea!

Christmas Rose Tea- Recipe
Fills one ornament. Use only dried herbs. My favorite place to buy my bulk teas & spices is from iherb.com
2 Tablespoons rose petals
1 teaspoon rosehips
1 Tablespoon chamomile
1 Tablespoon calendula petals
2 teaspoons hibiscus
1 teaspoon white tea
2 Tablespoons lime basil – Lime basil can be hard to find for purchase, unless you grow & dry it yourself, but you can use any of these other options I share below, in its place for an equally enjoyable tasting tea! I love them all.
(Can replace Lime basil with: Lemon Balm, Lemongrass, Mint or Nettle leaf, all taste fab!)
