Love Heart Tea Bags

Nothings says “you’re my cup of tea” like these super cute, DIY love heart shaped tea bags ❤️

They’re a bit of a labour of love but ultimately, this is a very easy to make gift for that special tea drinker in your life.  You probably already have the materials and all you need to add is a bit of flair.

You Will Need

Loose leaf tea

Coffee filters

Cotton thread



  • Helpfully coffee filters are already folded in half, so leave them like that.
  • Draw a love heart shape.  I used a cookie cutter to draw around.  Draw it close to edge.
  • Roughly cut out the shape, ensuring the two sides are still attached.

  • Using cotton thread, sew the two prices together with small stitches.  Leave about 5mm seam.
  • Trim the love heart, making sure you remove all of the pen marks
  • Sew on a length of butcher’s string or embroidery thread and add an embellishment to the end.

  • Store as you would normal teabags.  You could gift wrap them lots of ways.  I’ve used a vintage glass butter dish, but tissue paper or a little cardboard box would be just as sweet.

If you don’t have a Valentine, why not celebrate someone else you love.

Love Rachel ❤️
