Tea Time Tuesday: Hot Tea Weather Has Arrived

This is a new series of blog posts to share my love of tea and some discoveries I am making as I dive more into that love. (And honestly, what goes better with books than a nice cup of tea?)
Well there was officially frost when I woke up in the morning late last week. The time has come for fuzzy socks, cozy blankets, toasty sweatshirts and of course hot tea. Instead of reaching for the iced tea in the fridge I now find myself reaching for a mug while water heats in the tea kettle.
And with the changing season my taste in tea also changes.  I tend to lean more towards spicier and more robust teas in the cold months. I will rarely reach for white tea, green tea or light fruity teas and instead will be reaching for black tea, red teas and tea with apple, orange or vanilla flavors, and of course lots of spice from cinnamon, cloves, and even black pepper.
So do your tastes change with the season too? What are some of your favorite cold weather teas? I am going to be stocking up soon so would love to try some of your picks!


  1. I am pretty much an English Breakfast Tea drinker year round. Occasionally I'll venture out to drink some Green Tea and around the holidays I like the Joy Blend that Starbucks sells/used to sell.

    1. I haven't really had any of Starbucks tea, I usually stick to their iced drinks but will have to check it out. Thank you for sharing!
