3 Comforting Holiday Tea Recipes to Warm Your Soul:
1. Pumpkin Pie Rooibos Tea Latte
Our brand new Pumpkin Pie handcrafted tea is so crazy good. Caffeine-free and packed with antioxidants, rooibos is a powerful cancer-fighter and weight loss aid. So there’s no need to feel guilty about this dessert latte! Steep the Pumpkin Pie tea in 8 oz of hot water for 5 minutes. Remove the tea, and add 2 tbsp of heavy cream (or half-and-half for a lighter version), a splash of pure vanilla extract, and ½ tsp to 1 tsp honey or stevia. Blend with a hand blender for about 30 seconds, or until frothy. For an extra treat, top off with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
2. Apple Spice Tea
Heat up 8 oz of water, milk, or nut milk in a small saucepan. Steep 1 tea bag or 1 tsp of loose leaf tea, like our Black Ceylon Tea which has a mild citrus flavor that goes well with this tea. Add in an organic diced apple, ¼ tsp cloves, ¼ tsp cinnamon chips, and stevia or honey to taste. Allow it to boil for a few minutes, until fragrant. Pour through an extra-fine mesh strainer or use a coffee filter over a mason jar to sieve out the ingredients from the tea. Enjoy as is, or turn it into a latte by adding 1 – 2 tbsp of heavy cream (depending if you used a milk base or not) and blend until frothy.
3. Cranberry Mint Tea
Heat 8 oz of water in a small saucepan. Steep 1 tea bag or 1 tsp of loose leaf green tea, like our Green Sencha Leaf Tea which adds a pleasant base. Add a small handful of cranberries and a couple sprigs of fresh mint to the pot, as well as honey or stevia to sweeten to taste (usually ½ tsp – 1 tsp). Boil until fragrant, about 5 minutes or so. Sieve through an extra-fine mesh strainer or coffee filter, and enjoy!
