The moment we wait for all year is finally here! Time to throw on an ugly sweater, steep your fave tea and cuddle up with the best Christmas movies your streaming service has to offer.
Our head office is filled with some staunch holiday revellers. So, of course, we took the opportunity to ask around for top picks for best Christmas films.
Here are five of our favourite Christmas movie and tea duos you’ll definitely want to steal for yourself.
1. Home Alone (1, 2 & 3, but mostly 1)
Obviously we couldn’t have a Christmas movie round-up without this classic slapstick. Watching Kevin defend his family’s home and duke it out with the Wet Bandits never gets old.
Pairing: Candy Cane Crush
It’s all about the cool mint, creamy white chocolate and candy canes. Like a kid in a candy store.
2. A Charlie Brown Christmas
Christmas is steeped in tradition, and nothing says tradition like a classic 1965 animated television special. Plus, Linus’ speech is a great reminder of the true meaning of the season.
Pairing: Santa’s Secret
Infused with peppermint and cute candy cane sprinkles, this black tea is as sweet as Snoopy.
3. Love Actually
We don’t want a lot for Christmas, there’s just one thing we need… a cute movie and a cup of tea (obviously). And maybe a clone of Hugh Grant’s character too.
Pairing: Hot Chocolate
Get that extra warm and fuzzy feeling with a hot cup of fudgy and oh so rich pu’erh.
4. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Not your average classic holiday film, but hear us out. It’s got magic, there’s a Christmas scene, plus how cute are Hermione, Harry and Ron? We knew you’d come around.
Pairing: Long Life Oolong
Some things are meant to live forever – unlike he who must not be named and this peachy tea (so good it won’t last long in your mug).
Who can forget Buddy the Elf, full of love and trust, and his crazy adventures in the big city. “It really resonated with me […] you should’ve seen me hail a taxi for the first time,” commented our Tea Apprentice.
Pairing: Maple Syrup Oolong
Yup, maple syrup in a tea. After all, syrup is one of the four main food groups, along with candy, candy canes and candy corns.
- The Night Before
- The Nightmare before Christmas
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- The Holiday
