I would say to go with the coffee beans. Tea is more likely to look a little dirty and not pretty when it’s not in a teabag!

Also messy…  my FSIL is the kind of person who looooooves to put confetti in the envelopes with the cards.  I hate it.  I always have to vacuum after opening something from her.  Anything like tea or potpourri that has a tendency to fragment when handled roughly may come out of the box in much smaller pieces than it went in, and likely come out attached to the invitation in ways that may not be good.

I vote for coffee beans~ as pp said, not as messy.  It will be a simple way to complement your color scheme, and will be really affordable too.

Just a thought….coffee beans might significantly boost your postage costs.

Are you concerned about the coffee smell on the invite?

theres a bee who used jellybeans (sorry i cant remember who right now). but they might be heavier than coffee beans anyway.

I think tea is pretty, but I guess I really love tea. Good tea almost looks like little buds, so it isn’t quite as messy.

I would pick something delicately scented, like Earl Grey. I think this one looks nice and probably smells great. http://www.englishteastore.com/1mt-bpgp.html

I would go with tea over coffee…even the thought of getting a box of coffee beans in the mail makes me sick. I know I can’t be the only one who can’t stand the smell. I also vote for Earl Grey. I love the smell.

i would use jasmine or jasmine pearl tea. the smell is subtle yet fresh and fragrant.

you could also do a black peach tea.

If you’re mailing in the summer and you’re in or sending to warm climates, just make sure you think about/experiment with any possible melting issues of coffee or candy!  Mail trucks and mail boxes that sit in the sun are pretty toasty

I’ve never used it in packages, but mood moss seems like it would work well (and it’s pretty light). You could do a test run by putting some in the trunk of a car for a few days…
