    Are you giving people a way to steep it or are there directions on the card? I would take “sweet orange ginger tea” but not just a regular black tea blend.

    I would leave it, since I’m not even sure how to use it. Doyou dump the concents in the water?

    I like the idea of hot chocolate instead.

    I like tea, especially in the winter!  I say go for it!  However, with loose tea, I think it would be best to find a way to put it into a tea bag, or include a tea steamer ball thing somehow.

    My boyfriend does not like tea, so he wouldn’t like it.  I would take his.  I think there’s some people who like tea and some who don’t.

    I love this idea! They look so pretty in the glass containers and it’s perfect for a winter wedding!

    I personally love TEA! I’d love it, but I do have an actual pots that steeps but many people dont so I think they would ultimately trash it 🙁   They have the “Smore Love” idea that I was gonna use as my winter favor with the graham cracker, marshmellow and choclate that i thought was really cute…just an idea…

    I think it’s fairly obvious what to do with loose tea but it’s possible a few of your guests will want some directions. So maybe include those on the other side of the craft tag. Besides that, I think it’s a great idea and I would appreciate that favor a lot.

    I love tea!!! I agree that some people might know how how or have the tools available to them for loose leaf tea though. 

    You could include these “loose leaf tea bags”. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BLCIN4/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_1?pf_rd_p=1535523722&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B004NC7IFQ&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0Y2NEEPX4297VVVD068A  I haven’t personally used them but they have good reviews.

    I think most favours are a waste of time and money. Yes, they are cute. Yes, they are a way of leaving an immediate thank-you to your guests. But most of them are such a token gift that you might as well spend the money on something else.

    If you really want a favour, the tea will be fine. Fortunately we have the internet for anyone who doesn’t know what to do with tea leaves. I really think the majority of your guests would think you are insulting their intelligence if you include instructions on how to brew tea.

    I like tea, but…in a tea bag. Also, I can’t imagine your male guests keeping it.

    I would love it! It would give me a reason to use my mana-tea infuser!

    I don’t drink tea personally, but I would take it!  I know a lot of the more frugal Bees think that favors are a good thing to cut for your budget, but not everyone agrees with that.  And I’m not talking about your guests, I’m talking about *YOU*.  Obviously you want to have a favor, I did too.  Yes, I agree that they are not NECESSARY, but you want to have them, and if it’s important to you, go for it. 

    So assuming that you ARE going to have a favor, the biggest rule is EDIBLE! and you’re meeting that! So don’t second guess yourself AT ALL.  Not everyone will like everything, but if you have the jars that’s a sunk cost and the tea in such tiny amounts and tags, will NOT be that expensive, and I think it’s cute and sweet and a nice token.

    That said, my only other concern was that people might not get how to use loose tea.  So I think amberback‘s suggestion was EXCELLENT.  $6.00 for 100, to throw 1 or 2 in with each?  I think that would help alot if you can figure out a creative way to do it! 🙂

    dojx:  my fiance would! he loves tea!! And so do several guys that I work with so I don’t think that’s completely true.

     

    I really miss favors at weddings when there arent any. I don’t care if it’s a chocolate or something completely silly/useless. I just like to have something!

    VictorianChick. What if you had some tea and some hot chocolate? So people could pick?
