It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Gift exchanges, office parties, festive music, delicious food and, of course, amazing tea. Yep, we’re talking about the holidays. Getting to share in the merriment of the season with the people you love is the best – but sometimes it can leave you with a stress ball in the pit of your stomach. Lucky for you – tea is here to save the day! From surviving crowded malls and crazy family get-togethers to pulling all-nighters wrapping gifts, here are 6 ways to keep your cool with tea this holiday.
Tame a full house
It just wouldn’t be the ultimate holiday gathering without a full house of your favourite people. But sometimes things can get a little out of hand. The kids are running wild, the dog is tugging on the Christmas stockings and Aunt Judy got a head start on the punch bowl. When things hit the fan, take a deep breath and serve up some soothing Buddha’s Blend. With jasmine pearls and hibiscus blossoms, this aromatic white tea blend will have everyone from your BFF to your Gran feeling happy and relaxed.
Entertain the kids
Cool uncles, it’s your time to shine! Kids love magic tricks. So while the parents are busy prepping dinner, why not entertain the munchkins with a colour-changing tea? Just steep up our Magic Potion infusion, add a squeeze of lemon and watch them “Ooh” and “Aah” as the colour goes from indigo to violet. Did we mention this juicy blue raspberry blend is caffeine-free and almost sugarless? And the Award for Coolest Uncle goes to…
Tackle that shopping frenzy
Children laughing, festive tunes playing in the background, crowded stores… angry shoppers fighting over gifts?! It’s Christmas season at the mall. But don’t worry – matcha’s got your back. Thanks to its high levels of L-theanine – a brain- boosting amino acid – this antioxidant-rich green tea powder will help you stay calm, focused and level-headed while you dive into the shopping frenzy.
Take on a late-night gift wrapping sesh
Ah, yes… the last-minute gift wrapping sprint. You probably told yourself you’d get a head start this year, but then life happened. You got busy, maybe even procrastinated a little. And before you know it, it’s December 24th and you’re left with a pile of gifts that still need wrapping. Time to break out our limited edition Candy Cane Crush tea. This white chocolate and peppermint flavoured black tea will give you the fuel you need to get the job done. Sip up and crush it!
Ease digestion after a heavy meal
You promised yourself you wouldn’t overindulge this year, but then you came face to face with that holiday spread: turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, steamed veggies, an assortment of cheeses, and to top it all off: mom’s famous pecan pie. Maybe it was that extra plate of turkey or maybe you just went to town on the camembert. Whatever the culprit, if your seeking some emergency tummy relief, try Organic Le Digestif – a comforting blend of ginger, fennel and peppermint. It’s a delicious way to ease digestion after indulging in an epic feast.
Bounce back the morning after
Had a little too much fun at the office party last night? For a clean start, sip on North African Mint. With detoxifying fennel and soothing peppermint and ginger, it’s the perfect way to settle an upset stomach and kick that hangover to the curb. Plus its energizing base of green tea will have you up and running in no time. Well, not really running… probably just sitting and making it to 5 o’clock.
Stay warm outdoors
Eeek, it’s nippy out there! Keep those cheeks nice and rosy with a travel mug filled with our festive Alpine Punch or Sleigh Ride tea. They’re fruity, comforting and caffeine-free, so you can sip ‘em all day long. Plus all those sweet spices like cinnamon and ginger will keep you (and your hands) warm and cozy while you hit the slopes, build a snowman or walk your furry best friend. With these infusions by your side, you won’t even feel the cold.
