Although classic countdown calendars for Christmas more often than not involve chocolate and candies, this tea advent calendar is a welcomed alternative for those who don't have sweet tooths. Hung on strings and boasting vintage-inspired labels, this lovely garland also acts as a great piece of decor. Not to mention a fragrant one.

Designed by Karen Gardiner of ArtfulTea, an Esty shop located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the tea advent calendar is also versatile in terms of what occasion is can be used for. Although the example above is clearly made with Christmas in mind, it can countdown a pregnancy, graduation and more. After all, this tea advent calendar is made with grownups in mind.
