It’s the holiday season and there seems to be a tea or herbal for almost all the “12 days of Christmas” here at California Tea & Coffee Brewery.
Cinnamon Orange spice . . . and everything nice
On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . .
A Passion Berry hot herbal ‘tea’.
On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me . . .
And we can just keep going. And we tea lovers can do it with some honey and stir with a cinnamon stick we leave in a beautiful clear glass mug. Or we can brew 1 TBSP. of a holiday blend in 4 oz. water and add it to the punchbowl and float thin orange slice rounds on top. How about hot matcha latte with a bit of really good quality peppermint syrup and a candy cane hanging over the edge of the mug?
An apple and spice herbal with just a touch of caramel syrup mixed in? Toast those you love with a delicate white tea and berry blend, carbonated with a home ‘fizzer’ machine if you have one.
There are endless ideas and endless blends with spices, fruits, and peppermint. That’s one thing I love so much about tea and herbals. There’s no limit to the creativity in coming up with delicious beverages and food recipes, like the incredible, mouth-watering works of edible art that our own Chef Robert Wemischner brings to us here in his posts every month.
It’s been a grand year at T Ching. I took a six-month leave of absence as a contributor but I always read because there are so many wonderful people who post and the amazing staff of T Ching, who always make sure the blog is beautiful and full of good things.
I raise a cup of spicy, fruity tea to you, a blend to be sure, but oh what a blend for this beautiful season!
Wishing you Diane, and all of our T Ching community, a joyous and healthy holiday. Tea brings health and inspiration into our lives for sure. I look forward to hearing your voice at T Ching in 2014. Cheers!
