Here's a fun gift idea from Mrs. Kelly's Tea for any tea drinker on your list: a tin of loose tea, a packet of drawstring tea bags (in just the right quantity to accommodate all the tea in one tin), and a 'tea snail' to perch on the edge of the cup to hold the tea bag sting as the tea steeps.
Find Mrs. Kelly's Tea inside the Train Shed at the Mill City Farmers Market. You can also order online, or attend Mrs. Kelly's annual Tea Tasting, dubbed the Twin Cities' Largest Tea Party, December 3 and 4 from 9am-5pm at their warehouse (77 13th Ave NE, Minneapolis). Call 763-788-8753 or email email@example.com for more info, or follow them on Facebook.
