Guest Picks: Tea and Coffee Accessories
19 teapots, coffee makers, mugs and more to brew your morning cup in style
Coffee or tea? Do you do both? I gave up coffee many years ago, and although I still love its aroma, tea has won my heart. They both have such wonderful and fun accessories, not to mention the hundreds of varieties of coffee blends and tea leaves available. Take a look here and see if you can find something unique for your drinking pleasure! — Libby from An Eye for Detail
Asian meets Scandinavian in this very cool glass pot with a stainless steel "egg" tea ball. Lower the ball to steep the tea, then raise it up to pour.
Now this is pretty neat! It's a "tea stick," and at almost 7 inches long, it would hold lots of loose tea — plenty to make my very strong brew.
I love the jewelry-like quality of these copper, tin and brass tea canisters that come in a variety of sizes. How gorgeous would they be on the counter?
These tea towels are made from unbleached flax linen and hand screened with simple but sophisticated motifs.
This is the modern tea bag. Click it open to fill, and reuse it again and again. I might have to buy one of these for traveling.
The famous Chemex coffee pot is now in all glass. I love the sleek look with the easy-to-use glass handle.
This is gorgeous! It's stainless steel, has a French press inside and has that fabulous wicker handle. It's so retro but so contemporary.
This glass honey jar has acacia and teak wood. The rope handle lets you pull off the center top to insert the honey stick. What will they think of next?
It's a plastic tea canister that looks like stainless steel. Plus, it has a clear plastic spoon attached. Tea keeps longer when in the dark, and this would look great in any kitchen.
You've probably seen these mugs with Pantone colors, but now they come in a huge variety of colors. There's something for everyone. The size is perfect too — not too large, but still able to hold plenty of your favorite drink.
I really love this stainless steel set! It is glamorous; it is sleek; it works in any style kitchen or dining room. It would be great to see on a coffee or tea tray.
This is really neat: put tea leaves in that small compartment on one side, pour water, steep, turn the cup to another angle and take a sip. It's like a mini tea pot all in one.
This white and shiny stoneware is far from basic. Store your tea and dish it out with the attached spoon.
If you're looking for more balance in your life, try this teapot in glass and bamboo. It comes with the stand, strainer and scoop.
This cute set for tea drinkers is from Cost Plus World Market. It's comes at a great price, and it would be fun to display.
This is truly unique! The Clive Stand is made in the U.S. out of glass and black walnut wood. How elegant would this be for a dinner party?
This mini creamer is oh-so adorable. Maybe place one at each place on your table or use it for breakfast with your oatmeal? I love this one.
This is a very, very cool idea: a coffee scoop and bag sealer all in one. This is a must.
