Home-made tea bags.

So I’d been thinking what to get my boyfriend for his birthday for a long time. Nothing seemed right until I saw this post on A Beautiful Mess.

It’s DIY. Jay loves tea. It was perfect.

Of course I went a step further and made a box to put all the tea bags in.

I used Apple Tea, bought from my favourite tea shop, as it’s Jay’s favourite.


I was too lazy to look at the post at the time I actually made it so I did it all from memory, which I think worked out better because it meant I could put my own touches to it.


Every teabag was hand-stitched. It was quite time consuming but I found it was nice to do as I watched TV. They turned out great and really had that home-made look.

I made 17 in all. I am so happy how they turned out.
