The most wonderful time of the year is here, and we’re here to give you direct insight into your coziest drinks yet! Teas are often the drink of choice to wind down after a busy day celebrating the season or after a hard day at work, pushing on til that long-awaited holiday break. However, they can be enjoyed all day, every day – giving you the perfect thing to reach for whenever you need an extra serving of holiday comfort and joy.
The question is: Which holiday teas are best to sip on during the season? While there aren’t any wrong ways to enjoy your favorite flavors and blends, we do have some great suggestions to help get you in the holiday spirit. Read on for our full list of cozy Christmas tea blends you won’t want to miss as we wrap up the last bit of 2022!
What are the best Christmas teas?
You can make any tea a Christmas tea. Generally, as the weather cools, you’ll want to feel that cozy warmth going down to your toes – which is where warming blends, such as vanilla and cinnamon, come in. There are plenty of other flavors to experiment with that are perfectly matched with the chill and bustle of the season, such as evergreen and spearmint (for energy and cooling), citrus (for warmth, zing, and vigor), and chamomile (for soothing and grounding).
Part of the fun of holiday tea blends is the sense of nostalgia and comfort you can get with each cup. Experiment away – and don’t be afraid to mix and match. You might just find a new flavor you love year-round!
Below are a few of our favorite recommended brews for Christmas teas in 2022. Read on for our full list and links to buy. The time is now to stock up on your favorites!
Vanilla Chai Tea
There’s something so remarkably soothing in vanilla-based chai blends. It’s both grounding and calming, giving you a feeling of presence and comfort with every sip! The flavor comes through remarkably, especially with a loose-leaf vanilla chai tea, allowing each leaf and element to fully release its flavors into your favorite holiday mug.
Our vanilla chai is made up of the classic chai tea inclusions (like bold, rich black tea leaves peppered with cardamom, clove, ginger, and cinnamon) and a few extras. Calendula petals offer a sweet, earthy taste to the otherwise robust blend, and a secondary addition of black and white pepper flakes gives the tea a bolder, brighter flavor and gives you some added health benefits, too. It’s the perfect tea to sip on and get a gentle start to your day or to savor by a fireplace with your favorite cookies and a book.
It’s a great multi-use or year-round tea blend that perfectly captures the spirit of the season…and it makes a great gift, too!
Cinnamon Orange Spice
Snappy, spicy, and richly scented with citrus flavors, our cinnamon orange spice tea blend is the perfect pick-me-up for a late night of holiday gift wrapping or memories by the fire. It’s incredibly tangy and tantalizing, teasing every sense with the sweet-savory aroma of orange zest, South Indian Black Tea, and cloves.
If you love simmer pots, and you also love a healthy dose of caffeine to start your morning off right, than this is the tea for you. Lean into the sweet-scented steam before your first sip – it makes the experience even more magical!
Did we mention the added health benefits? Black tea serves as the base for this tea blend – offering rich anti-inflammatory properties that are perfect for soothing a turn-of-the-season sore throat. It’s also one of the most popular among our Tea Kitchen customers!
Holiday Fruit and Spice Blend
Looking for something that tastes and feels like your favorite Christmas memories? Our Holiday Fruit and Spice Blend tea is the best blend for you – infused with the rich flavors of freshly-harvested cinnamon bark, Indian black tea, and spicy, tangy ginger bits. We’ve also included cranberry pieces for their tangy-sweet flavor, pairing perfectly with the warming elements of the other components of the tea. It cuts through well, offering you a nostalgia that will definitely get you in the mood for a little bit of merriness!
That’s not the only benefit, though! Cranberries are considered to be a superfood, offering extensive anti-cancer benefits and increased immune function.
