Welcome to December's Tea of the Month Box featuring teas which not only taste wonderful but also smell wonderful!
December's box includes a variety of teas which are comforting during the cooler days of the winter season. We picked out a black, green, and herbal tea this month so you can enjoy a cup of tea no matter what level of caffeine fits into your day.
We created this special winter tea just for our Tea of the Month Boxes! A blend of black tea, vanilla, and cacao nibs and husks, this tea is surprisingly sweet and satisfying. Usually, we caution against overbrewing teas, but this tea needs a good 5 minutes to brew. You may want to switch it up and steep this tea in warm milk for a luxurious holiday treat.
Brew 1-2 teaspoons of tea in 8-10 ounces of 210° F water for 5 minutes.
This green tea is a blend of Sencha and Bancha teas with the addition of pink peppercorns, orange slices, and safflower. The fresh green --almost herbal--notes of the tea leaves are nicely balanced with a hint of spiciness from the peppercorns and the nuttiness of the almonds. The orange slices add a nice bright finish to this cup of tea. We enjoy this tea as a cozy way to wake up on a chilly winter morning.
Brew 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of tea in 170° F of water for 2 minutes.
We originally thought of our Raspberry Vanilla Herbal as an iced tea blend, but as cold weather has creeped in, we've found it equally delicious as a hot tea. This tea is a fruit and flower combination that a perfect tea to end your day.
Brew 1-2 teaspoons of tea in 8-10 ounces of water at 210°F .
To bring some festive cheer to your kitchen this holiday season, we've included a Christmas Tea Towel in your box! We hope each time you use your towel, you'll think about how much we appreciate your support of SpiceTopia!
If this is your first box, you'll find a Tea Journal and Infuser tucked inside your box. Take notes and keep track of the teas you enjoy in your Tea Journal and over time you will become not only a tea enjoyer, but also a tea connoisseur! If you'd like to share on social media a picture of the journal page with your favorite tea from this box, we'd love for you to hashtag that picture #SpiceTopiaTEA, so we can follow along on your tea journey!
Keep an eye out for your Tea Practice Card! This month, we encourage you to share tea time with a loved one. We all need to take time to connect with others in a meaningful way and taking time for tea can provide that time.
Happy Holidays! Thanks for supporting SpiceTopia--our family appreciates it more than you can know!
