:: My Favourite Winter Teas + A Recipe ::

Hello lovelies!
It's no secret that I love tea and drink it year round. However, I do think that there's something about it that makes it perfect for winter. You can still find me drinking holiday tea, and you probably will for the next month or two! With that confession out of the way, let's move on to the teas themselves.

1. David's Tea Sleigh Ride:
This tea smells amazing to start with! It's made up of a medley of delicious ingredients and smells like the holidays. The only downside of this is that it's made of quite big chunks so it runs out quite fast.
This tea is festive and fruity and just tastes like something a fairy would drink! On weekend mornings I usually make this into a sugarplum latte which is absolutely delicious. The recipe and instructions are below!
This tea is perfect for the winter cold season. The mix of ingredients keeps a cold at bay and is quite relaxing. I've actually forgotten about this tea a little and rediscovered it while making this post. Needless to say it's going to be seeing a lot more use as I seem to be fighting off a cold!
This tea tastes like liquid gingerbread! It tastes cozy and is perfect for curling up with warm blankets and a book.

Sugar Plum Latte Recipe:
On my previous post I mentioned a sugar plum latte and some of you seemed interested in it. This can me made with any tea, but from my experience it works best with the Celestial Sugar Plum Spice Tea. 
You Will Need:
♥ About a cup of your desired milk
♥ One Tea Bag
♥ Boiling Water 
♥ About a Teaspoon of sugar 
1. Pour a little less than a quarter cup of boiling water over the tea bag and let steep for 10 minutes.
2. Warm up the milk however you would like. I usually foam it, but I'm sure that warming it up on the stove would work just fine. Now pour it in your favourite mug!
3. After your milk is warmed up and your tea is steeped, pour your tea into the milk. Add sugar to taste, and enjoy your latte!

What is your favourite winter tea?

  3. My favourite winter tea? I drink it all year round but my favourite teas are: black tea with a slice of lemon, no sugar and white tea, no sugar. I also like green tea with grapefruit smell and taste.
