Rockin' around the Christmas tea

Before Christmastide is over I must needs run by Wegmans and pick up more Christmas tea. There was so much yummy tea out this year and I got hooked on it!

There is the Celestial Seasonings Gingerbread Spice that my mother loves. My mom puts sweetener and milk in it but I always just drink tea hippie style, plain.

Stash Tea had this line of Christmas teas that I absolutely could not resist. The best is "White Christmas," with white tea and mint and -- this is the kicker -- ginger.

Their green mint tea, Merry Mint, tastes kind of like toothpaste. But Celestial Seasonings gets the mint green tea right. This is the real reason I have to run back to Wegmans. There is this Candy Cane Lane only with green tea. This was a stroke of good fortune because I resisted buying it at first. I was looking for the normal Candy Cane Lane herb tea. I could not find it and that was why I bought the green tea. It is superior!

End result, as we say here in Buffalo: Boxes and boxes of tea!

Part of the problem is, you know me, I love packaging.

Look at that Sugar Plum Spice, lower left. It is delicious! You think it is going to be plummy but it is spicy instead. And what drew me in was that magenta packaging.

I love colors and pictures.

When my book on Leonard Pennario comes out, no matter what it is like on the inside, you had better believe it will have a fantastic cover!
