2013 Holiday Advent Blog – Day 2 – An Assortment of Holiday Teas


Being a fairly new tea drinker this year, I’ve been kind of looking forward to Christmastime because I knew that there were a number of fun holiday teas that I wanted to try. I actually sampled another peppermint tea earlier this summer when I stumbled across it in a sampler box that we had in the closet, but nonetheless when I saw all three of these lined up on the shelf in a row, I just couldn’t help but pick them all up…

I figured at $2/box, even if the teas were horrible, at least the box art is kinda fun! 😉

My thoughts:

  1. Candy Cane Lane – This one is the best, and probably most likely to get completely used up by the end of the season – the smell alone is a great reminder of Christmastime, and probably why I enjoyed its peppermint counterpart all the way back in August!
  2. Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride – Kind of sweet, which is a plus because I’m really trying hard not to put honey in my tea anymore because when I did, I was overdoing it and defeating the purpose. Sometimes it has sort of a strange, nutty aftertaste, but it’s never as bad as…
  3. Gingerbread Spice – Now admittedly I don’t not like this one, but it’s definitely my least favorite of the three and I wish there was a little more sweetness to this one so that it more closely resembled cookies than a pile of hazelnuts.

Nonetheless like most teas, all three of them have a great aroma to them that for me almost make them more enjoyable simply to lean over and smell than to actually drink, but of course, the flavors themselves are all fun in their own unique ways, too.
