Christmas Gift Ideas for the Tea Lover

I'm not feeling too great today, so I'm kind of making this post a short one, but I did come across some great Christmas tea gift-giving ideas from Pinterest and also a small list of Christmas teas that I haven't tried yet, but hope to very soon.

I'd also like to try making this homemade recipe:

Spiced Holiday Tea

  • 2 cups  water
  • 3   tea bags (unflavored black tea)
  • 4   star anise
  • 1 3-inch-long  cinnamon stick
  • 1 cup  passion fruit nectar
  • 3 tablespoons  honey
  • 2 tablespoons  lemon juice

1.  In a medium saucepan bring water to boiling. Add tea bags, anise, and cinnamon stick. Reduce heat. simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes. Discard tea bags and cinnamon stick. Stir in nectar, honey, and lemon juice. Heat through.
2.  Pour tea mixture into four heat-proof cups, floating a star anise on top of each. Makes 4 servings.

Have a "TEA"rific  Christmas and a Blessed New Year!!
