It is Christmas Eve and I’m drinking a cup a Stash Christmas in Paris tea with my Dad. (He likes it too) As usual, I’m writing my blog post at the last minute! (Love ya Abby)  This is my favorite of the holiday teas that Stash sent us. The tastes of mint lavender & chocolate go well together with some chocolate candy. I have to say, the vanilla flyavor is so mild you might miss it! I’m using a coconut milk creamer, and that adds a nice flavor as well.

My favorite part about this tea is the cool feeling of the mint mixed with the warmth. Very refreshing! The lavender makes it unique. Perhaps I’ve found a new Christmas Eve tradition? Merry Chistmas to our wonderful readers and gratitude to the awesome companies who’ve sent us tea throughout the year!

Taste: 4 of 4 leaves – quite a good cuppa!

Nothing compares to a hot cuppa and freshly baked christmas cookies on a cold winter evening. Baking, and the of course eating, Christmas cookies is one of my favorite holiday traditions.  This year my husband (the true baker in the family) and I made traditional sugar cookies, snickerdoodles and Hershey’s kiss cookies. Serious yum!

This year I ate a few of these fresh-out-of-the oven beauties and sipped on a nice hot cup of Stash Christmas in Paris tea. This tea combines two classic flavors, peppermint and chocolate in a light caffeine-free package!  To round out the flavors, lavender and vanilla extract are also added.  Though I couldn’t identify them on their own, they added a little complexity to the overall taste. This sweet and minty blend goes so well with well with the seasons sweets, but had enough body that it is worth drinking by itself too! Adding milk and honey helped bring out the sweetness and made it all the more comforting and cozy, as an evening tea should be.
