12 Days: Day 6: A Winter's Tea





When I lived in Connecticut, warm tea and cocoa were a staple of not only the holiday season, but all winter long. Now that I live in California having tea is a wonderful way to slow down and relax. If it happens to be a particularly cold week or a rainy day, a good read and a cup of fragrant tea is a wonderful pleasure.

I found this  image at TEAVANA'S website. If you aren't sure about tea preparation our what type of tea your might prefer this site is a perfect place to start.


 
TEA TIME is also a wonderful source of information. I just recently picked up their Holiday issue. I'm looking forward to making some tasty tea sandwiches and cakes.
 

Here are some of my favorite teas available only during the Holiday Season:

Trader Joes:

Vanilla and Cinnamon Black Tea

Candy Cane Green Tea


Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf:

Winter Dream Tea

Winter Fruit Tea

Starbucks:
This tray of 6 Teas are each encased in awesome metal tins



I also discovered this really cute tea infuser that I'm hoping Santa will drop in my stocking :)


How about a game with your pot of Tea? Who knew their was a Pride & Prejudice Board Game?!







Finally here are 5 books that go well with a pot of tea:

I drink both. I drink coffee in the mornings... I hate that hairy feeling and coffee makes it scatter. I drink tea in the evenings, like Chai or Green tea.

I'm not a coffee drinker but I do enjoy a good tea. I like hot drinks like cocoa and hot chocolate because it spreads warmth all over and puts me in a festive mood. I have a couple of tea that I like to drink to relax me.

What a great giveaway. I like both. Usually tea when I have a cold and coffee in the winter when they have great flavors

Both! I have to have both everyday. Coffee is reserved in the morning and hot tea at night. It doesn't matter what kind of tea either, I love most all varieties.
