There is perhaps nothing more quintessentially British than a cup of tea – the dark leaves steeped in hot water, ruminating in a teapot, steaming rising from the cups, and just a little milk – the perfect way to rise in the morning and an essential antidote to a long day.

To celebrate International tea day we have compiled a list of inspiring tea gifts we love:
