Winter reminds me of colorful berries, fruits, and warm spices. December also predominantly features bright shades of red. Mulled Cranberry Tea, is the last blend of tea that I’ve picked for this year and my definite favorite this month. A fragrant, rich, flavorful tea that will leave your home smelling of warm, comforting spices. Using flavored tea bags of your choice would give your tea an additional punch.

And just like that, we have reached the end of another year. Day by day nothing seems to change, but when you look back everything is different. Tea was my friend this year if you may. It took me on countless adventures and through numerous sessions of experimentation and sharing that was a lot of fun and heaps of learning for me.

Today I plan on bringing in New Year with a Star Wars marathon (it is insane how I haven’t watched this series all my life!) while sipping on this mug of deliciousness and having my family around me.

Happy New Year to you! ūüôā
