Christmas tea is a December tradition for me. It's just strong black tea with plenty of spice and a bit of citrus. I always pick up my blend from a local(ish) tea house.*
I brew it strong and add some milk. Paired with a pumpkin muffin, it's the perfect way to celebrate on a chilly morning.
If you don't have a local tea house with their own blend, I highly recommend Harney & Sons Holiday Tea. The beautiful tin is an added bonus.

Love your tea cup and saucer! Here's my favorite tea... Lipton vanilla caramel truffle.ReplyDelete
Pour one cup water and one milk in a small saucepan.
Add a few cinnamon sticks and almost bring a boil
Turn off heat and add two-three tea bags
Remove cinnamon and bags add a bit of sweetener.

i bet that gorgeous tea cup makes it taste even better.ReplyDelete
yum! that looks so fantastic! i've been spending more time than usual out in claremont since that's where we're getting married next may -- i'll have to check that tea house out the next time i'm there!ReplyDelete
PS i've continued to wear that very lovely marigold belt you made me for my engagement pics -- it's so lovely! i'm glad you've added that color full time to your shop.
i love the bamboo tea house! the claremont village is such a charming place to shop especially during the holidays.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tip on Harney and Sons!ReplyDelete
Mmm...I drink a lot of starbucks decaf tazo chai tea this time of year, with a splash of almond milk.ReplyDelete
do you have a pumpkin muffin recipe that you love? maybe one that you've already shared? i've yet to find a good one...
Sometimes I find that tea hits the spot better than coffee. This looks yummy!ReplyDelete
I just discovered Harney & Sons this winter. It's a lovely break from coffee. I want one now!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness that looks so peaceful. It's a dream of mine to be a serious tea drinker, but for some reason it always winds up tasting kind of like muddy water to me. I suspect cheap tea is the culprit.ReplyDelete
I got this tea at your suggestion and just had my first cup. It's the perfect Christmas tea and the smell is unbelievable. Just perfect. Thanks!ReplyDelete
