Product Description

This kit contains everything you need (except an old tea cup and a couple of old saucepans) to make a tea coloured container candle. This is the ideal way to have a go at candle making at very low expense.

Candle making offers you the enjoyment both of making the candles and then savouring their soothing light for up to 20 hours per candle. Or, of course, you might want to make them as gifts, for charity fund raising or, even, as the first step into your own candle making business.

This kit contains:

  • 150g Blended Paraffin Wax
  • Wick
  • Metal Wick Tab
  • Tea-coloured Dye (Fudge)
  • Full instructions

If you want to make multiple 'cup of tea' candles, please have a look at our larger container candle kits. We have a kit which will allow you to make 2-3 container candles, or our bulk kits make around 20 or 40 tea cup candles - depending on tea cup size. These kits offer better value for making candles in quantity.

If you need the individual kits, perhaps for a group project, then please email me for a shipping quote.


All you need to supply is a small, heat -proof container such as an old tea cup or small jar, plus a couple of old saucepans for melting the wax in.

Note:  tea-cup not included! To keep costs down, this product comes in a plastic bag which is then put in a jiffy bag for posting. This kit will be despatched using second class post if ordered on its own

  1. good starter

    Posted by ruth on 12th Apr 2014

    I made this candle first to practice on. The instructions and video helped so much.thankyou

  2. Good starter pack for a beginner

    Posted by Gg on 16th Dec 2013

    I had never made candles before but this was a really good way to try it out. Kit included clear intructions but the online video was worth watching first. I was very pleased with the result and decided to send off or a bigger pack. Great fun.

  3. It really looks like a cup of tea!

    Posted by Libor Buban on 3rd Dec 2013

    I ordered this for my fiancé who enjoyed making this. It sits nicely in the kitchen on the shelf in a black and white cup and saucer. It's a nice decoration for the kitchen.
    I'm sure she'll be back again soon to spend some more of my hard earned money.
    This is by far the best candle making website,all others are selling overpriced tat.

  4. cup of tea anyone?

    Posted by Judith on 4th Oct 2013

    great little pack to make your first candle, very easy to do (althought my wick is slightly off centre!!) but practice makes perfect! ordered at the same time the 20 container pack so all ready to go. Already have family and friends saying 'make me one'!!

  5. Great!!

    Posted by Fiona Mitchell on 23rd Sep 2013

    An ideal purchase if you've never made candles before but want to give it a try!! I've since purchased more supplies and my original candle is still on the go!!

  6. Cup of Tea

    Posted by Unknown on 11th Sep 2013

    I've already bought some pretty tea cups to make more candles. Great to be able to try it before buying lots of stuff and it was really easy.

  7. First Attempt

    Posted by Nana on 6th Aug 2013

    Easy to follow instructions. Happy to have made my first candle.

  8. I'm hooked

    Posted by Lorraine on 2nd Jul 2013

    Got this when I signed up for the newsletter. Great way to get me started and I'm now hooked. I've already ordered by next batch of kit! Easy to follow instructions and very easy to get a great result. Loved the personalised message on the despatch form. Thank you.

  9. My First Time

    Posted by Aine on 4th Jun 2013

    This was my first time in ordering from your website and my first time to make a candle. Thank you very much for making it so easy and enjoyable. The service was quick and easy. The clear and precise instruction for the candle making helped me to produce a candle worthy of selling! That was until my son stuck a pencil in it while it was setting!

  10. Cup of Tea

    Posted by Jennie Morgan on 27th May 2013

    This was my first candle kit, and it was great to have a go before spending large amounts of money on this hobby. I really enjoyed making this and will be making more in the future.
