Herbal Tea at Hand

It’s so easy to overindulge in coffee, when what you really want is a soothing hot beverage. The solution? Carry a selection of herbal teabags with you! We love Organic Chamomile Flowers from TWO LEAVES AND A BUD. Alpine Berry, Organic Peppermint and Organic Lemon Rooibos are great options, too. A 1.3-ounce box (15 bags) costs $7.99. Contact Two Leaves and a Bud at (866) 631-7973;

Always in Good Taste 

Baked and packaged with care, these handmade herbal cookies from Brooklyn-based confectioner WHIMSY & SPICE can be shipped straight to your door. The Honey Lavender shortbread and Rose & Black Pepper thumbprint (filled with rose petal preserves) were our favorites. But any of these luxurious desserts would make a wonderful gift. A dozen shortbread cookies costs $8; a dozen thumbprint cookies costs $6.50. Visit

Mint for Your Tea

Brighten your afternoon tea with Peppermint Flavoring Tea Spoons from MELVILLE CANDY COMPANY. Use the spoon-shaped candies to stir fresh mint flavor and sweetness into your steaming tea. Some Herb Companion staffers even skipped the tea and enjoyed the spoons as pepperminty, after-lunch lollipops. Three gift sets (24 spoons) cost $35.76. Contact Melville Candy Company at (800) 638-8063;
