It is the first Monday of 2016! I really love the start of a new year. It is a time to start over fresh, crisp and clean. I don’t usually set resolutions each year, but I do like to focus on something specific during the new year. This year it is all about decluttering and living in the moment.
Living in the moment for me means embracing what is going on at the time and not wishing for the next phase. To go along with that I really want to do more reading and relaxing when I can. In the winter, I adore curling up in a blanket with a book and a good cup of hot tea.
Obviously, everyone knows I love coffee. It is one of my specialties as a chemist, but there is something so comforting about a nice hot cup of tea. In the fall I shared with you my AWESOME list of autumn teas to try and now I want to share with you the perfect, coziest best teas for winter!
Tea is also an amazing chemical that as a scientist I love to explore. Green tea is definitely a great choice for your health, but all teas are just as delicious and good for you. Click the links to find the product 🙂
This sounds like it is only for Christmas, but it is probably my favorite tea for winter. It is an herbal tea, so you can enjoy it at anytime of the day. It most definitely tastes like a sugar cookie and I love it! You can also really step up the game by turning it into a frosted sugar cookie creamy tea! Pair this will almost any sweet treat.
This is another celestial holiday tea, but I drink this all winter. It is slightly spicy, but it also has a rich flavor. My mom loves this tea because you can steep it for awhile and get a really strong flavor. She is a coffee drinker and loves strong things. This tea is also good to add to thinks like this hot chocolate recipe. This is a good breakfast tea too!
Three. Winter Spice Herbal Tea
Obviously this made the list for the best teas for winter since it is specifically a winter spice tea, but it really is the perfect tea for winter. It has a flavor of cinnamon and vanilla without being to sweet or too strong. I can only find this online, so I stock up each winter.
Harney and Son’s has some of the best teas. This one is so delicious! White tea has such a light flavor, even non tea drinkers like it. My husband isn’t a tea or coffee fan, but he likes this one. I always add a little bit of honey and lemon to compliment the flavors.
Five. Tazo Cocoa Mint Mate Tea
This stuff literally taste like mint chocolate. It is so good! I have to add a little sweetener to it, but not much since the flavor is so good! I always keep this stuff on hand if I can.
I love the cinnamon and vanilla combination in this one! It is the perfect combination and it isn’t too overwhelming with cinnamon as some teas are. It is an herbal tea, so I love having this one at night while I read! Or by the fire 😉 Similar Tea Infuser
I just tried this tea a few weeks ago and I am hooked! It is like a mix of cocoa and peppermint…like peppermint bark! I recently steeped this and mixed it with my skinny peppermint mocha instead of water, and OH MY, it was good!
Lastly is this peppermint tea. I have tried dozens of peppermint teas, but Bigelow is my favorite one. I always get sick at my stomach after I take my medicines, so peppermint tea is always a must have. It is the best for upset stomachs!
So, there are my top eight best teas for winter! I hope you get to try out a new one soon because they are the best during the winter months! If you prefer coffee, I am many recipes for that like Belgian Cookie Coffee, Hot Chocolate Hazelnut Coffee, or even a Crockpot Latte.
