    Welcome to JLSE. As a rule, all questioners are expected to provide some translation attempt or research effort. Otherwise your question may get closed as "mere translation request" by someone who doesn't want to learn Japanese. Please keep this in mind next time.

  • Welcome @A. Mashreghi! Ideally in a question here, you'd provide some of your guesses as to the correct answer to get us started. However, I acknowledge this is a particularly hard construction for learners to translate initially.

You can say いろいろな種類(のティーバッグ)が2個ずつあります.

いろいろな種類 can work as a noun meaning "things of various kinds".

This 2個ずつ is an adverb, and ずつ is a useful suffix that means "for every" or "each". In case you don't know ずつ, here's a good starter: JLPT N3 Grammar ずつ (zutsu)
