tea and tea accessories make splendid holiday gifts. tea is a pick-me-up and a hand warmer on cold winter days. and the few minutes it takes to brew a cup give you a break from work to read the headlines or peruse your instagram feed.
some say tea tastes best when sipped from fine china. i like tea in just about anything as long as it has the right amount of milk (not cream) and sugar.
here are a few tea items i love this holiday season:
1. aveda comforting tea: 100% certified organic and naturally sweet, with licorice root and peppermint. (aveda.com) 2. for life brew-in-mug with infuser and lid—i can’t live without it!
