Christmas Spiced Tea

If you love the smell of Christmas, you'll love the taste of this

 

If you love the smell of Christmas, you’ll love the taste of this Christmas spiced tea. 

There are certain smells that take us back to a memory that is comforting, sweet, and just plain happy. If the smell of spiced apple, or pumpkin filters through the air, I feel all cozy inside. 

I grew up in snowy Colorado and Christmas meant snow and cold–and I loved every minute of it. For me, now that I live in hot and steamy Florida, it’s a little harder to get into the Christmas spirit because of the heat. When I first moved here, I would giggle about driving around looking at Christmas lights with the windows rolled down. 

But, hands-down, the smells of Christmas get me every time. And, it does get chilly from time-to-time here in Florida and I take full advantage of it. 

It’s great to load the wood into the fireplace and start a fire. Who doesn’t love the sound of crackling wood?

And making Christmas spiced tea will get you in the holiday spirit fast. You can even pour some into a mug and take it around with you while you look at Christmas lights! 

It’s always a cozy, warm treat to get up Christmas morning and make yourself and your family a cup of Christmas Spiced Tea. 

The tea also makes a great gift for others, and doesn’t cost a lot of money.

If you’d like to make this as a gift for others, you can put the ingredients into a small jar, or into a bag and tie a bow around the top. Handwrite (a lost art) the recipe on a small card, and give it to a friend for the holidays. 

What are some of your favorite teas around the holidays? Be sure to write me a comment and let me know. I’d love to hear from you.
