What better way to celebrate two of my favorite things, Summer and Christmas, by incorporating a tea that represents the positive attributes of two wonderful times of the year, and so much more.
The Peppermint Tea from Wegmans was a joy to sip. And speaking of feeling like Christmas, Wegmans is just that. I always feel like a kid in a candy shoppe when visiting any one of their stores near me or in my travels. But it’s more than just that. It’s a place of wonders, imagination, and happiness.
With just one ingredient, they stand by their motto, Just Tea. I like it. It pulls no punches and doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not. It’s by no means the best tea I’ve ever had. But it doesn’t need to be. It’s a comforting drink to be enjoyed heated or chilled.
In the spirit of the holidays, I chose to have it boiled. And even on a warm Summer’s night, it was a pleasure to have. It was so palatable, I served myself a second cup.
Throughout this process, the color of the tea changed rapidly and looked gorgeous. You know you’re getting something good. And I had to take a photo a few minutes after, because the tint just kept getting stronger. I’m loving this.
Tis the season to be happy! And hopefully that means all year round. The holiday cup has made its triumphant return! It’s a nice reminder of feeling good and what’s important in life. It’s on what the inside that counts but positive images such as these only heighten the experience.
If I only had some holiday treats to go with it. Well not to look too far ahead, but those times will be here before we know it. And all the goodies have since been long gone or way past their expiration date. The latter would not be a good idea!
In the true spirit of the season, it’s all about indulgence and abundance, so enjoy all the photos I have provided!
I wish I could try all these teas! Maybe I will…
