Happy winter weather! It seems like winter has finally arrived in my neck of the woods. The past week we’ve gotten ice storms, plummeting temperatures, and snow on the way! School has been cancelled, and a few businesses have closed to keep people off of the roads. Of course, once the ice storm slowed and the roads warmed a bit, I had to make my way to my favorite place.
Cinnamon Dolce Latte for the win! But if a cup of tea is more your style, I’ve got you covered! Check out what I got in my January SipsBy Box.
Christmas Eve from Stash Tea
I was surprised to find this holiday tea in my box, but as soon as I drank it I ran to their website to buy more. Unfortunately, they were out, so I have to wait. But this caffeine-free tea is made with cinnamon, spearmint, orange peel, vanilla extract, orange oil, and clove bud oil. This tea is the epitome of holiday flavor with the minty bite, warm cinnamon, and sweet vanilla. Perfect for sipping in front of the tree or the fireplace on a cold night.
Kings Light from Trankebar
This caffeinated black tea has an herbal infusion of apple pomance, rosehip seeds, rooibos, sweet blackberry leaves, elderberry flowers, peppermint, rhubarb pieces, and mullein flowers. This black tea was different in that it had a sweetness to it, but it still had the dark, classic black tea flavor. If you’re looking for different black tea to try, I’d recommend giving this a try!
Pomegranate Strawberry Green Tea from Miss Tea
This organic green tea with blueberries, pomegranate seeds, goji berries, and strawberry pieces is caffeinated and has a sweet scent! It had a light, mild, fruity flavor and is packed full of antioxidants and free of artificial flavors. As the packaging says, it’s a fresh, fruity, and healthy way to start your day!
Organic Chai Rooibos Tea from Cederbos
This caffeine-free tea is made from pure rooibos leaves and natural chai flavoring extract. It’s also free of artificial additives and sweeteners, and packs an antioxidant punch! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I read that it was a chai rooibos, because to me, chai is usually spicy and rooibos is usually earthy or nutty. But this warm drink reminds me of a maple tea I’ve had before, with the cinnamon flavor giving it a slight spice and a hint of nuttiness from the rooibos.
This Month’s Tea Winner Is…
Christmas Eve by Stash Tea! I’m so disappointed that I have to wait to order myself a box, but it’s something to look forward to!
