Our favorite Christmas tea blends
Solstice Spice is one of our most popular teas during the holiday season. This tea blends black tea with apple, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, orange slices, and pink pepper for a taste reminiscent of the holidays. Every year, we include this tea as the 21st flavor of our Tea Advent Calendar to help ring in the winter solstice. Solstice Spice is a classic spiced tea that's sure to get you in the Christmas spirit!
Winter Forest blends Chinese green tea, orange, almond, and pink peppercorn for a light, festive tea blend reminiscent of biscotti. This tea is great all year round, but we find ourselves enjoying it a little extra during the holiday season.
Fancy a little trip to Wonderland? This blend is named in honor of Alice and the Mad Hatter's tea party. Alice's Peppermint Party combines peppermint, ginger, rose, apple, almond, and hibiscus for a bold, flavorful blend with a touch of whimsy.
Vanilla Rooibos is sweet, rich, and thoroughly cozy. One of our ArtfulTea team members has dubbed this her "bourbon tea"—it inspires the same warming feeling without any of the alcohol. This delicious and decadent tea is great on its own or with a splash of milk and sweetener, and makes a perfect evening cup of tea after festive holiday celebrations.
Mulled Wine Fruit Blend has all of the warm, cozy goodness of mulled wine, but without any of the alcohol. This fruity spiced blend combines apple, hibiscus, cinnamon, orange, and cloves. It's delicious served hot like traditional mulled wine, and surprisingly tasty when served over ice.
When you’re in New Mexico, you quickly learn that chile is part of the culture here. Our Chimayo Chai honors that tradition by including just enough crushed red chile flakes in our chai tea to add the right amount of heat! Enjoy it in the classic way as a sweet, milky chai—or, if you’re brave, try it straight for a fiery cup. The perfect tea for warming up with after spending time outside in the snow.
This dark, rich tea combines the sweet decadence of caramel with the earthy depth of flavor of an aged pu-erh to create something akin to dessert in a teacup. Smooth and full-bodied with a naturally sweet finish, this tea is supremely cozy—perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. Excellent with a splash of milk.
Chocolate Mint Rooibos blends rooibos with peppermint and cacao bean for a rich, chocolatey dessert tea that's full of flavor. Kind of like an after-dinner mint chocolate. Delicious on its own, Chocolate Mint Rooibos also goes great with a splash of milk! And, since it's naturally caffeine-free, it won't keep you up at night.
Lapsang is our top pick, hands down, for enjoying during snowy winter weather. Our organic Lapsang Souchong is a smoky, aromatic tea with a smooth, crisp character. Reminiscent of woodsmoke or even expensive cigars, this classic tea has a hint of natural sweetness and is perfect to curl up with on a cool day. Like a campfire in a cup!
Genmaicha Matcha blends two traditional Japanese green teas together for a tasty "hybrid" cup of tea! Genmaicha, which features Sencha and Bancha mixed with toasted rice kernels, and Matcha, which is a powdered green tea, combine beautifully to create a rich, toasty, warming flavor that is slightly sweet and creamy. This bright green infusion is extremely high in antioxidants and low in caffeine.
Cinnamon Pu-erh combines dark, aged pu-erh tea leaves with cinnamon, ginger, and orange peel for a warming, restorative blend. Pu-erh is dark and full-bodied, but low in tannins and smoother than black tea.
Each year on Christmas Eve, hundreds of people flock to Santa Fe's Canyon Road, where the farolitos are lit along the length of the street, and there's the smell of pinon smoke on the air. People stroll the street, sing carols, and enjoy hot drinks and biscochitos. Santa Fe Sage takes its inspiration from Santa Fe at Christmas time, blending smoked black tea with anise seed, juniper berries, white sage, and cinnamon for an intensely aromatic, slightly smoky tea that embodies the spirit of Santa Fe.
