Here is gift set I prepared for your sister.
The basket includes 4 teas - 10 ounces in total. This set includes Hot Cinnamon Spice (black tea) and Kyoto Cherry Rose (green tea), Citron Green (nice hot or cold) and Heaven Sent Chai.
The flavors I selected are a quite sophisticated.
The tea ware includes a tumbler for tea on the go. You can make tea right inside it using the infuser basket. Great for the morning commute.
Also included a large ceramic tea cup with a large stainless steel infuser. Its so easy to make a nice cup with this set up. I trust your sister would be impressed with the beautiful teacup with a famous Japanese print on it. It's a view of Mt Fuji.. so beautiful. A great way to relax with a nice cup of tea.
This set will be boxed up and shipped to her address as soon as you order it.

1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.
There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter. If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times.
Below are general steeping instructions. For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle. When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.
