Favorite Teas


Cold winter days (and boy, have we had a lot of REALLY cold days this year!) have found me craving a cup of tea in the chilly mornings and sometimes another to take the chill off in the late afternoon.

I thought I'd share my favorite teas with you. And if you have one you really love, I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment and share the name of it! I'm only recommending herbal infusions, because that is all I drink.

  
Tea Forte - Winter Chai -- The spicy notes of cinnamon and other warming spices make this infusion my favorite to get the blood pumping and warm up on cold winter mornings. I love it with a bowl of oatmeal.

David's Tea - Spiced Apple -- This is a great infusion when you want something comforting to drink. It's got all those homey notes of apple and cinnamon. We first sampled this at their booth at the Head of the Charles Regatta...on a cold and damp day...so it always seems like the perfect cozy warmer to me.

Fortnum & Mason - Sour Cherry and Orange -- This infusion is sweet and tangy and a gorgeous red color. I brought this back from the Fortnum & Mason store in London after enjoying it with scones in their parlor. I don't think it's available in the U.S., but you can find other of their teas available from Williams-Sonoma.

David's Tea - Caramel Shortbread -- This was a Christmas flavor from David's Tea. I'm hoping they bring it back next Christmas, because I'll be completely out of it by then and in need of stocking up. So gentle and calming. I enjoy it with an almond biscotti.

Paromi Tea -- Hibiscus Berry -- We LOVE Paromi Tea in our home! This one is wildly popular with everyone to whom I've ever served it. It's sweet and satisfies that sweet tooth when you want to avoid a dessert, but still need your sugar fix.

Paromi Tea - Sleep with Me -- This tea takes chamomile to a whole new level. It's combination of chamomile, linden leaves, and lemon balm deliver a knock-out punch when you need to sleep. Soooo relaxing. 

What is your favorite tea? Do please leave me a comment and tell! I'd love to hear from you!

  1. I'm not sure if it's still available online, but I am loving the Downton Abbey Christmas blend tea that I purchased at the exhibit in NYC.

  2. I love Harney and Sons teas, especially the CTC Assam, but also the cinnamon, Jasmine and green. Visited their tea shop 10 years ago - wonderful! Have good specials if you're on their e-mail mailing list, too.

  3. I received a new to me kind of tea for Christmas and the smell is so wonderful! It's called Pukka, from the UK. The ingredients are: Chamomile flowers, sweet fennel seed, licorice root and Manuka honey. I had it this morning. You can see the picture on my Instagram account.

    1. That sounds incredible, Melissa! Anything with chamomile wins my heart! And even though it's supposed to be calming and help with sleep, I love it in the morning as a gentle way to start the day!

  4. I love Licorice Spice by Stash. Sweet and spicy and gives a natural boat when energy lags. Debi Meyers

  5. I have a tea CUPBOARD, my family makes fun of me. I am not familiar with the Paromi Teas and will look for those. Have you tried Harney & Sons? Two of my favorites are: Hot Cinnamon Spice and Vanilla Comoro.

    1. A tea CUPBOARD?!?! It may come to that around here! ;-)

      Yes, I LOVE Harney & Sons! I haven't tried the Vanilla Comoro though. I'll look into it! Thanks for the recommendation!
