Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride Tea Review (Holiday Tea 2017)

Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride Tea Review 2017

Another of the Celestial Seasonings Holiday Teas, Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride.  Like Candy Cane Lane, this one is released each year for the holidays and can be found at Bulk Barn.  I think this leans a little more shortbread than pure sugar cookie, but the sweet taste is there and a great low calorie alternative to a cookie.  It smells just like sugar cookies though!  This one is his favourite of the Celestial Seasonings Holiday Teas so we have picked[Read more]

Stash Tea Christmas In Paris Tea Review

Stash Tea Christmas In Paris Tea Review 2017

Stash Tea Christmas In Paris is one of my favourite holiday teas.  Definitely one of my fave bagged holiday teas.  So easy to keep a couple in your purse when visiting people over the holidays who may not keep decent tea in the house.  There is only so much coffee a tea drinker can stomach in a day.  Christmas in Paris amps up the typical chocolate mint tea with some lavender for a sophisticated cuppa – one even people who[Read more]

DAVIDsTEA White Cranberry Bark Tea Review & White Chocolate Cranberry Bark Recipe

You’re not alone. Get your holiday fix with this tantalizing fruit infusion. With juicy red berries and creamy white[Read more]

DAVIDsTEA Caramel Shortbread Tea Review (Holiday Tea 2017)

DAVIDsTEA Caramel Shortbread Tea Review - Holiday 2017 Tea Davids Tea

Review of the new DAVIDsTEA winter/holiday collection coming up.  Starting with the one I was most looking forward to, Caramel Shortbread.  The loose tea smells a bit too fruity, but definitely the aroma of a caramel shortbread in there.  Reviews on the teas in this collection seem hit and miss, you either love them, hate them or just can’t get over the stevia in some of them. This is the second one I have tried and both have a fair[Read more]

A Cuppa Tea With Monarch Tea Co – Interview With Katie Cyr

Monarch Tea Co Interview Katie Cyr

I am lucky enough to have several local tea companies near me.  It means I can pick up some hand blended tea without paying shipping as they are stocked in local indie type stores or sell at popups and craft fairs.  One of these is Monarch Tea Co.  You may remember them from my review of their Holiday Blend tea last year.  Similar to my cuppa tea interview with Tickled Tea last week, I asked Katie Cyr, the owner of[Read more]
