"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose." That all too familiar winter chill is upon us, so it can mean one of either two things, it either means Christmas is on its way or it has passed. Regardless of which one it is, it seems the season does last a little longer and feel a little brighter, even if logic, temperature and the length of days would have you believe otherwise. And no matter where you are in the season, warming up with a good tea is still a great idea. Yuletide carols ringing in your ears, the holiday parties filled with joy and cheer, lampshades being used as hats and let us not forget about the red stocking caps! So, whether you are a Santa or a Scrooge, a Mrs. Clause or a Claire Phillips (Lead Female Role in the movie Scrooged, Frank Cross' love interest), or anyone else for that matter, its Christmas time! We all deserve a spot under the sun. The English Tea Store has got just the blends for you, sure to warm you up and fill you with holiday cheer.
Best Holiday Tea Time Flavors and Spice
For a unique blend and take on traditional Christmas drinks combined with teas, The English Tea Store has a lovely Swiss Hot Chocolate Flavored Black Tea that is loose leaf and comes to us from Sri Lanka. The reviews are roasting with this blend.
Another mix that is as unique is the English Tea Store's Vienna Egg Nog Flavored Black Tea. This tea is loose leaf and features a wonderful mix of flavor profiles including caramel, cinnamon and ginger designed to make you feel like you are drinking a glass of egg nog without actually doing so.
Our Peppermint Matcha Green Tea gives you a powerhouse combination of two very popular super supplements. Matcha tea on its own has been used for centuries as an all-around health drink giving benefits to anyone who drinks it. Couple this with peppermint which has also been used for a number of ailments and you got one heck of a potent mix. And as we all know with the cold weather comes with a lot of unwanted house guests in the form of germs, colds and viruses, so why not hit 'em where it hurts and grab some Peppermint Matcha Green Tea.
And to round out English Tea Store brand teas, we have the Holiday Spiced Flavored Black Tea. This is another loose-leaf tea featuring notes of cinnamon, orange and clove. With this fine mix, you'll feel right as rain even if it's snowing outside.
Holiday Tea Samplers that makes a Great Gift
One of our most popular products at The English Tea Store is the Ahmad London Bus Tin. This is a beautiful red double decker bus tin filled with a 25 count of Ahmad's full flavored Breakfast Tea brought in from the United Kingdom. The tea itself is made with Assam, Ceylon and Kenyan teas that will warm you up on the coldest of days. What's better is the tin makes a really cute gift that can be reused and even given away after the tea is long gone.
Just as popular, we have the Ahmad Tea London Experience Tin with 3 Loose Leaf Tea Caddies. This features famous London imagery and landmarks on three individual tins that holds tea in loose leaf.
