My friend just had this exact drama – wanting to use loose leaf tea as favours but realising not everyone has a strainer. 

I love the idea but you HAVE to have a strainer with the tins/bags or half your guests won’t be able to use (and therefore won’t take) them.

I think that’s a really cute idea! I would include tea bags for them to take so they can use the tea much easier.

I agree offer them the bag or strainer, which ever fits best in your budget.  I love the idea!

devonlee:  I wouldn’t bother.

First of all you don’t need a strainer to make loose leaf tea. It helps but it’s not a necessity. For centuries tea has been made without one. How would fortune tellers read tea leaves if we all used a strainer?

Secondly, people who would take loose leaf tea likely already own a tea strainer or use loose leaf tea already.  I doubt that the availability of tea as a favor will cause anyone to switch from cheap tea bags to loose leaf tea.

You could include little steeping bags! – Maybe have the tag printed with your names and wedding date!

There would be a lot of extra cost if you got all your guests tea strainers. I imagine your guests who are tea fans will be the ones most likely to use your favor and will also have tea strainers anyway.

i’m someone who makes organic body butters- I had tables of 8 – and I did 4  lemongrass body butter favors and 4 double chocolates with cherries to each table. it was all a hit and people scooped everything up. – I think people just loved the chocolates more actually LOL. .  I saw my friends Dad scarfing his down along with his neighbors – lol.

mink714:  And this is relevant how?

 

OP, I agree with the PP above about the little bags – a cheaper and still pretty cute option!

devonlee:  It’s 100 bags for $9.50, right? And you have 50 guests? You could order two sets of the bags, and everyone could make up to 4 little bags of customized tea!

LoveMyBrit:  those are actually a good prie but OP I thnk you need to think about packaging as well. Sounds like aminute detail but since these actual tea bags will go in peoples cups I think its a bit un-sanitary just to have them on a tray or out in the open as displayed above.
