I am not one for rushing the season and I despise seeing Christmas commercials the day after Halloween. I am still washing the cotton candy out of my brain after a weekend of watching my mom-in-law’s beloved Hallmark movies. That is NOT what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
However, Thanksgiving has been tucked away and it is time. It is particularly time because I’m still wobbly from a 10-day sinus infection, the wind is raw, gusting at sonic speeds, and cuts you like a knife. It is time for a little Merry Christmas.
Basilur is a new brand to me…you’ve heard me wax poetic about our local Tuesday Morning store; that’s where this box just kind of jumped into my arms. And I’m so glad it did…a gentle, pastry-like concoction of black tea, lemon, honey, ginger, and vanilla. A Christmas cookie in a cup. Let the celebrations begin.
