These DIY homemade tea bags make the perfect thoughtful, personalized gift idea for Mother’s Day or birthdays. Scroll down to see how I made them. This post contains affiliate links.

 

I have always appreciated receiving handmade gifts, to me they are more meaningful. Our mom loves tea and growing up we used to do always have tea parties. This year we surprised her and threw our Mother’s Day celebration a few weeks early with a Mother Daughter Tea and these DIY homemade tea bags. She loved them and they looked really cute on the table too!

If you make these, be sure to share a photo and tag me on Instagram @ourtiny_nest so that I can see how they came out! If you’re not following me already, click here to follow me on IG 🙂

You will need:

  • Coffee filters
  • Loose leaf tea
  • Twine
  • Cardstock or printed photos
  • Stapler

Directions:

1.) I started by printing out some of my favorite photos that I wanted to use for the tea bags and cutting them into small squares for the tags. If you’re not going to use pictures, you could also do cardstock and write little personalized messages on them.

2.) Take a coffee filter and scoop 1 1/2 teaspoon of loose leaf tea into the center of the coffee filter.

3.) Bring the edges of the coffee filter up to make it into like a blossom and pinch the center to close it off.

4.) Take a piece of twine and wrap around the part of the coffee filter that you have pinched off and tie closed leaving enough of the twine coming off the tea bag for steeping.

 

5.) Using a stapler, staple your picture or cardstock to the end of the twine.

We chose to have them all set out on the table. I think they would also be cute made into a basket with a tea canister, a tea cup, some biscotti and maybe some macaroons.

Spring vegetable goat cheese quiche

Spring vegetable goat cheese quiche

This spring vegetable goat cheese quiche is the perfect dish to serve for Easter, Mother’s Day or your next brunch.  Serve with a side salad, some fruit and a cocktail and you’re guest will be wowed! Scroll down for my recipe.

Spring vegetable goat cheese quiche

Ingredients:

  • 1 store bought refrigerated pie crust (I cheat and use a store bought crust to save on time but you can absolutely make your own if you wish)
  • All purpose flour (for surface)
  • 4 eggs (plus 1 more for the egg wash for crust)
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 cups of roasted vegetables (I used asparagus, red peppers and red onions but you can use whatever you want or have leftover in the fridge)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • salt and pepper (I don’t measure, I just eyeball it)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Roll out your pie crust onto a lightly floured surface. Transfer into a lightly greased tart pan or pie pan (I got this set of 2 on Amazon), pressing the edges. Bake according to directions on package and then let cool.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and milk.
  4. Add in cheddar cheese, goat cheese, garlic powder, ground mustard, thyme, salt and pepper.
  5. Once the crust has cooled and before pouring in your egg mixture, make an egg wash and lightly brush over the crust. This will prevent the crust from becoming soggy.
  6. Pour your egg mixture into the crust. If you have any additional veggies left over, sprinkle them on top.
  7. Bake at 375 for about 20-25 minutes or until center of the quiche is done (it will no longer be jiggly) and the edges of the crust are golden brown.
  8. Let cool in pan for about 15 minutes prior to serving.
