    Is there anyway you can put it with a teacup? I bet you could find a steal at the dollar store, a department store during a big sale (new years day is almost as good as black friday), online, etc. They don’t even all have to match. Or put a few cookies in there too?

    ^^ I love the cookie idea! So they can have tea and cookies!

    That’s an adorable idea to hand out tea! I’m a tea junky so I voted for 1 bag of high quality tea.The people who will drink the tea will most likely be like me.

    However a big box of lipton tea is good in my opinion and pretty cheap.

    If it’s obvious that you made the tea bags yourself with looseleaf tea, so it looks classy, then I think 1 would be A OK.

    If it’s affordable, I think it would be cute to have little tins with the actual looseleaf tea in there (and maybe a nice label of what it is and what’s in the blend). That would be cute and you can custom blend one to reflect you and your FI.

    Truthfully, I’m pretty sure a majority of the guests won’t be able to ID a really high quality blend versus a “just good” blend so I would err on the side of quantity over quality. That said, I wouldn’t go so cheap as to pick Lipton’s, which they can buy themselves. I would pick a lesser known, higher quality brand that is still available at the grocery store, like Numi or Tazo.

    The packaging is great and looks adorable. I’m not a big tea drinker but I think it’s a cute idea b/c many people are!

    That is SO cute! I would love to get that as a favor. I wouldn’t mind getting just one either.

    hmm this is difficult.

    i say absolutely no to giving out 3-5 low quiality teas- if we’re taking lipton.

    but what if we were talking tazo/stash? tazo is my favorite and its so affordable!

    maybe also look into mighty tea? they do whole leaf in bags.

    whats your budget? you could also buy bulk loose leaf and make your own!

     

    i do like the cookie and tea idea mentioned above, though!

    Absolutely LOVE the teacup/cookies idea… SO stinking cute.

    And I LOVE homemade things!! If it’s obvious that you’ve made the teabags yourselves, totally worth it for just one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Budgeting in Seattle:  I’m with you – don’t do the teacup. I’m sure it would look ~adorable~ in a photo but as a guest I would have no use for a random teacup, no matter how cute it was. Cookies or madeleines would be a fun accompaniment though!

    Are you getting married in Seattle proper? If you have even a few out of town guess, I’m sure they’d go gaga for market spice tea bags. I’m sure you guys have a favorite tea shop, but if not maybe check out the market tea shop to see if there’s something fun/unique/uniquely Seattle that you could get for your favors.

    I chose other because I don’t like tea, and neither does my FI. However, that being said, I think it would be more meaningful to have just 1 bag of high quality tea rather than stuff you can just get at the grocery store.

    If you did include some cookies, that would be good for the non-tea drinking guests (like me) that would still get a little treat even if they don’t drink the tea! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

    I agree with you about the mismatched teacups. I wouldn’t be a fan of getting one at a wedding because I’d feel like I had to keep it and display it, and I would have no place for it!
