So I tried this a few days ago and told my brother it tastes just like Grandma’s Christmas cookies. Made a pot today and he agreed. So much so that he bought a tin when we visited Davids today…I love sharing good tea with people who appreciate it! This tea is almond-y and sweet and juuuuust right.

I really like this one and should get more. It’s weird saying that since it is a rooibos, and I don’t usually care for rooibos.

Out of all the Winter Collection, I think this one is definitely my favourite! Just a great tasting tea!

Do you have a recipe for these Grandma’s Christmas cookies? :D

Mine too, sarai, but that’s just because it’s a lesser of five evils…I’m not horribly impressed with the winter offerings.

I do, DaisyChubb! It involves a cookie press, though. But I’d be happy to share!

Aisling, I agree – I’m not a huge fan of the other winter collection teas.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
