In celebration of the Lunar New Year, TEALEAVES created a special-edition set of themed Chinese tea leaves. As a whole, this set is packaged with this year's zodiac sign, the Year of the Monkey and comes in a traditional red envelope to signify luck.

Inside the Lucky Envelope set are two oversized loose leaf tea bags, including one Organic Long Life Green and another Organic Imperial Oolong, two tea types that are deeply ingrained in Chinese history.

While many special tea blends can be quite costly to buy, this pair makes a great gift that comes in at under $5. Beyond Lunar New Year celebrations, TEALEAVES also suggests that this two-piece set would make a great way to commemorate family gatherings, the birth of a child and weddings.
