Cozy Teas to Sip All Season Long
Few moments are quite as satisfying as taking a sip of steaming tea on a chilly autumn or winter day. Warm mugs of tea are our constant companions during this time of year—we look forward to them just as much as we do long walks spent crunching through crisp fallen leaves. While we love our sweet iced tea, it’s (finally) time for a cup of hot tea with a splash of milk or a squeeze of lemon. In the spirit of the season, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite festive teas for you. We love them year round, but the addition of fragrant spices like cloves and cinnamon make them especially apt at this time of year. That’s why we’re planning to keep them in constant rotation along with our favorite fall- and winter-themed mugs.
We’re taking a note from the time-tested traditions of our British friends and embracing teatime all season long. We hope these lovely blends inspire and invigorate teatime for you during the holidays. Brew a cup, and get lost in the relaxation that you can only find in a sip of tea. It’s a particular pleasure that we’re planning to indulge in every day. Cheers!
