the best tea costumes for halloween

Trying to pick out a costume for a Halloween party? Showcase your love of tea with one of these tea-inspired Halloween costumes. From store bought to DIY, and from elaborate to last-minute, we have the perfect costumes for tea lovers. 

Kermit Sipping Tea Meme

Kermit the frog

As the most recognized pop culture tea-drinker in recent years, a Kermit the Frog costume will be celebrated at any Halloween party of meme-lovers. All you need is green shirt and pants, a DIY green collar made of felt, and your favorite tea in a clear cup. Be prepared to drop some truth bombs, then follow up with "But that's none of my business."

The Mad Hatter

Mad Hatter

This one's great for a Halloween party host–greet your guests with a cup of tea and happiest wishes for their unbirthday. The only question is which Mad Hatter to be – animated or Tim Burton?

Tea Bag

Tea bag

It doesn't get any more tea-themed than this. With a bit of DIY skill, you can sew some sheer white fabric into a tea bag shape, fill the bottom with leaves, and attach a print out of your favorite tea brand's logo. Bonus points if you wear it to a pool party.

Mrs. Potts and Chip

Mrs. Potts and Chip

Great for a mother and child pair of tea lovers. No DIY required for this one – plenty of Mrs. Potts and Chip costumes are available online.


T-rex costume

Grab a t-rex costume, a cup of your favorite tea, and delight your friends with your punny costume. You may not be able to drink your tea through your costume, but we think it's worth it.



Grab a friend–this is a great costume to pair with a Tea-rex. You can buy a koala onesie online, and carry around a cup of tea. Make puns all evening, and when someone tells you your jokes are bad, you can reply, "No, they're not. They're koala-tea."



We love our tea puns here at Sips by, and this is sure to be a tea costume no one's ever seen before. Pick out a Frankenstein costume and lurch around muttering about tea. To really put the nail in the coffin, use a pair of miniature tea cups as the bolts on either side of your neck.

Mug Shot

Mug shot

A perfect last minute costume, all you need is a mug and a piece of cardboard to hold up with your best mug shot face. Write down the city, date, and your name (or a tea pun of your name, of course.)

Tea-m Spirit


Pick up a high-neck tank top, pleated skirt, and pom poms to craft a cheerleader costume. You can use iron-on varsity letters to spell out T-E-A. Come prepared with some chants about your favorite beverage.

Boston Tea Party

Boston Tea Party

Don some 1700s garb and carry around a box of tea bags to dump onto the floor at opportune times. Make sure the bags are still wrapped–we do not condone contaminating your tea.
