Ingredients: Black teas, rooibos, peppermint leaves, organic alfalfa leaves, flavoring, malva blossoms, erica flowers, and vanilla beans.
Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes.
Holiday Tea Blend makes a great cocktail! Try this infusion of Holiday Tea in vodka to create aromatic, delicious cocktails. We made this easy recipe:
1 Tbsp Holiday Blend Tea
4 oz vodka
Blend together in a jar and let sit for 5 days to steep. Strain into another container.
Put ice in a small rocks glass. Add 1oz Holiday tea vodka and 1oz Irish Cream liqueur (like Bailey's). Stir and enjoy! This cocktail is smooth and delicious. Want to "jazz" it up? Add a candy cane in the glass as a stirrer.
Fun and Festive!
The infused Holiday Tea Vodka also makes a great gift! Simply strain your tea vodka into a nice bottle, seal and tie with a festive ribbon. Add a hang tag of suggested cocktails and a homemade label to really impress your friends!
||Oh you can drink this any time of year!
|I remember I sampled this tea from a teabox before...and I thought it was chocolate. But THIS time, it's much fresher and I can certainly appreciate it more. Why not have a holiday tea in July? I remembered it's half the year gone while sitting with Dad in his speech therapy waiting room and they're playing a Hallmark Christmas movie. Oh boy, toooo fun. Anyway, this blend is lovely. Even though there is rooibos among the black tea, the black tea gets pretty deep and dark, just the way I like it. I couldn't really tell there was rooibos here at all (AND it didn't break through my infuser to invade my mug.) The flavor is sweet vanilla and just the perfect balance of peppermint, so as not to overshadow the vanilla. Bonus points for these gorgeous tiny flowers. I'm happy I was able to revisit this one.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug// 14 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 4 minute steep|
|S&V's Holiday Blend is a delicate twist on a classic wintertime tea. It's not overwhelming with peppermint; which is nice and makes this good year-round. The vanilla is also light so it doesn't clash with the mint flavoring. This blend also holds up nicely with milk! Plus it's absolutely gorgeous dry.|
