This tea advent calendar features 25 delicious teabags individually packaged in handcrafted sewn paper envelopes, with each original design incorporating a date from 1st to 25th December – the perfect advent tea calendar for grown-ups who love tea!
These tea advent calendars come with a range of different flavour options – purists can choose to have their advent tea calendar filled with delicious English Breakfast tea, or you can choose to transform yours into an Irish advent calendar by filling it with Barry’s Irish Tea.
A combination of English Breakfast and Earl Grey teas is another lovely option, or you can choose to go with the ever-popular Tetley’s or PG Tips.
If you would prefer to be surprised each time you open a new envelope in your advent tea calendar, though, you might prefer to opt for the Assorted Mixed Flavours option, which includes the following teas: English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Camomile, Rooibos, Indian Spice Chai, Mint (spearmint), Jasmine Green Tea, Cape Malay Chai, Pure Peppermint, Organic Green Tea and Honeybush.
The tea flavour and brewing instructions will be provided inside each tea envelope, but if you choose the Assorted Mixed Flavours option you get a lovely little surprise during each day of Advent, because you won’t know what tea you’re going to have on this particular day of your Christmas Countdown until you open the tea envelope!
This tea advent calendar 2018 would make a lovely gift for a loved one who is far away, to let them know that you are thinking of them at this special time of year – but it works equally well as a special little treat for yourself – especially if you love Christmas…and enjoy a delicious cup of tea!
* Please note, the tea envelopes are not mounted – they come wrapped in white tissue paper. However, there is the option to order festive string and pegs, which can be used to display your tea advent calendar – examples of how this will look are available in the product images.
These are handmade and hand sewn so they are not all exactly the same. Made with white paper and sewn with white cotton.
Each individual bag is 7.2 x 6 x 0.5cm.
FAQs about this Tea Advent Calendar
Is this advent tea calendar suitable for vegans?

Unlike traditional chocolate advent calendars, these tea advent calendars don’t contain any sugar so they are perfect for diabetics.
Research also suggests caffeine doesn’t have a significant impact on blood sugar levels, so even if you choose caffeinated teas this should still be a perfectly suitable diabetic advent calendar.
Are the teas in this advent calendar suitable for someone who’s pregnant?
Doctors recommend that women avoid caffeine during their pregnancy, so it is best to avoid caffeinated teas. Fortunately, there is the option to order this tea advent set with naturally caffeine-free teas – simply choose the ‘Assorted Mixed Flavours’ option and add an ‘order note’ confirming you’d like caffeine-free teas and voila – the perfect pregnancy advent calendar!
I’d like to order an empty advent calendar to fill – is this possible?

Simply contact us and let us know you’d like to order an empty advent calendar and we will advise you on how to proceed.
When do I need to place my order if I’d like to be sure I have this as my tea advent calendar 2018?
The date by which you will need to place your order will largely depend on where you’re based, but as a general guide if your 2018 tea advent calendar is to be shipped to an address in the UK then we would recommend placing your order by Friday 23rd November 2018.
For a delivery to the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or other countries outside Europe we would recommend that you allow at least four weeks for your 2018 advent calendar to arrive, while orders to countries within Europe (other than the UK, of course) should allow two to week weeks for delivery.
Would this advent calendar make a suitable gift for a friend who loves Advent?
Yes, definitely! While many customers order this tea advent calendar for themselves, it would also make a really lovely gift for a friend who loves Advent and Christmas, and can be sent in a little brown gift box tied up with Christmas string so it will be ready to give to your friend as soon as you receive it.
Alternatively, we can send it directly to your friend – simply provide their name and address in the shipping address section when ordering.
Do you offer any other Christmas tea gift sets, in addition to this tea advent set?
Yes, in addition to our 2018 Tea Advent Calendar we also offer a a lovely Christmas Tea Gift Set, which comes in sets of 10 or 20 teabags.
If you’re ordering a gift for a tea lover one of our many other tea gifts might also make an ideal Christmas present – for instance, our Jane Austen Tea for a Jane Austen fan; our Gift for Art Lovers; our Sherlock Holmes Tea for any fans of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic novels; or our Friendship Tea for any friend that simply loves a delicious cuppa!
Why does your advent calendar tea include 25 dates instead of 24?
There is a long-running debate amongst advent calendar enthusiasts about whether an advent calendar should include a date for Christmas Day or not. We made the decision to include 25th December in our advent calendar tea, because we believe you should enjoy a delicious cup of tea on Christmas morning too – why should the fun stop on Christmas Eve?!
