If you’re reading this on Christmas Day 2020, you may be alone because of pandemic precautions. Or you may be hunkering down with your family and looking for something to do over this long holiday weekend. So, today’s post is a potpourri of T Ching’s options for infusing and sparkling up your winter days with a bit more tea. I searched the 13 years that T Ching has been offering holiday greetings with tea and selected a dozen suggestions to share with you today.

Last Christmas Day I shared a Santa & Tea coloring page PDF download. This year’s coloring page PDF I’m calling “Time In A Teacup” to represent our desire to see this year in the rear-view mirror.

For this last week of the year, I wish you joy and peace and visions of a better year to come. Thank you for being one of our loyal, regular readers or for joining our community as a welcome new guest.

Happy Sipping!  Babette Donaldson, Publisher, T Ching

What about a little tea-themed art & craftiness for the season?

I’m continuing a tradition of sharing some coloring page downloads as a quiet activity to share with a lovely cup of your favorite tea. And I hope that you are inspired by another of Jennifer Cook’s lovely holiday designs.

Consider blending your own seasonal teas: A gift of tea

Blending tea with spices, herbs, and flowers is actually an ancient tradition. Here are a few ideas to inspire you to create a sensory and taste experience with your tea.

Use tea in a new recipe & share your teatime menu as you gather virtually

While we’re still in holiday mode, it’s a great time to try some recipes with tea that are outside your everyday fare. Adding tea to some of your favorites can add a bit of fun and flare.

Plan Your New Year’s Tea & Health Resoultion

As we look forward to a happier and healthier new year, I selected a few of our past posts to help you incorporate tea as part of your plan.
