How to Make Your Own Scripture Tea


I cannot tell you how excited I am for today’s post. Because it’s been “brewing”, ok, “seeping” since April this year. When my honey and I take our annual trip to the mountains, we like to walk around and look in the shops. Most of the time, we buy nothing. Or very little. But I saw something that triggered my blogging mind and put it on the back burner to simmer. OH boy! Can we use any more cliches in one paragraph?!

What is Scripture Tea?

Scripture Tea is a box of tea bags with Bible verses on the tea tag. I just love sitting down to an afternoon cup of tea and meditating on the Scripture tag while sipping. It’s 5-8 minutes of being still and knowing that He is God. (If you like the idea of simply ordering this tea, click on the graphic above. 🙂 )

So I wanted to share the tea-rrific experience with you. Here’s how you do it:



1. Supplies needed: loose leaf tea (whatever flavors you’d like), jr. size coffee filters, string, free printable tags in link listed below. Prepare tags by printing, cutting apart, and folding over the top portion to leave enough room to paperhole punch. Punch one hole in each tag.

2. If you want to make your own tea bags, it’s pretty simple! First, cut your coffee filter into a rectangle. Ok, well, close to a rectangle. Place one flavor of tea on each side according to tea directions. Yeah, those are usually good to follow.



3. Fold as shown in the next three photos:DSC01763 DSC01764 DSC01765

4. Once folded, slip your prepared string through the Scripture tag, then secure both ends of the string into the tea bag fold. One staple then holds all the layers together.

5. And there you have it! Your own tea bag.

Now before you fall off your chair, here’s the scoop:

You don’t HAVE to make your own tea bags. If you like loose leaf tea, yes, I know they make tea balls. And also disposable tea bags you can fill… but, you can make a very beautiful gift for a tea lover or someone you know who could use a little “Be still and know that I am God” time. I think that’s all of us!

If you’re not crazy about the idea of making your own tea bags, you could still buy a box of tea and focus on adding the verse tags, just staple them on over the current tea tags. Or remove the old one and replace with the Scripture tag.


To add more thought to a gift, you could also create the Scripture tags with verses specifically chosen for the loved one or friend to whom you’re giving the gift tea set.

I have two color choices for the Scripture tea gift tags today. To download the .pdf free printable for the Scripture tags, click here for brown or here for red. Or you can also click on the graphics below.
