A Special Christmas White Tea





Hello Tea Friends,
Hope you are enjoying the magic of the season and not feeling the stresses that can be attributed to Christmas.

This year I acknowledge that I'm pretty behind with shopping and cards, but I'm trying my best not to let this dampen my spirits.



Last night I listened to some classical Christmas music and finally sat down to address my cards. 


I set out a plate of peppermint bark, Danish butter cookies, along with a cup of fantastic white tea.


Wednesday night I made a large cookie sheet of peppermint bark. I broke the pieces and wrapped them in cellophane bags. Makes a nice simple gift!
This is all that is left...I definitely need to make some more.


Last July I had the pleasure of experiencing afternoon tea at Tea's Me Tearoom in Hillsboro, Oregon. It remains the best food I've ever enjoyed in a tea room. 




White Christmas Tea  

I've been really eager to try more white teas recently. Even during a July heat wave, I ordered this tea while at the tea room. I loved it so much I bought some to take home and I waited until this Christmas week to drink it again. The tearoom has an online shop where I plan to purchase more of this tea.

The tea is a natural blend of Mutan white tea, vanilla, almond and cardamon. So delicious! It's really smooth and light with no after taste. Plus, it's not overly sweet.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Best wishes for a blessed day,
Nora

  1. The White Christmas tea sounds wonderful! I bought a Stash tea called White Christmas, but it is very different from yours. White tea, but there is peppermint, and a touch of ginger. It's very good.

    I make peppermint bark too. We call it White Christmas Candy. Haven't made any yet this year, though.

    Have a wonderful Christmas!
