Hi Guys! Come on in and see what I’m doing today!

When my daughter lived in Seattle, WA, we found the adorable Queen Mary Tea Room. Whenever I visited, we went there and I was hooked for life. I’ve always been a tea drinker rather than coffee – however, I do have a caramel macchiato occasionally (for the caffeine . . . okay, they taste realllly good, too).

So . . . every Christmas, I order Queen Mary’s Holiday Harvest tea – it is a spice tea and by far my favorite tea . . . EVER!

See how pretty the package looked when I opened the box, sighhhhh . . . . . . .

This is a bookmark that is included in every order. I love it when new studies come out proclaiming the benefits of drinking tea regularly. According to these studies, I am super healthy because I drink a pot of tea every day – all year long – even in the summer – it’s how I start my day . . . put a kettle of water on . . . brew for 3 or 4 minutes . . . aaaaaaaahhhh . . . calmness reigns . . .

The Holiday Harvest Tea description on their website is: “infused with orange slices, cardamom pods, pink peppercorn, clove, cinnamon, coriander and apple pieces. Rudolph’s favorite.”

Now check out their Orange Spice Tea description: “This rich black tea is blended with succulent orange slices, tart apple pieces, cardamom pods, coriander, pink peppercorn, clove and a touch of cinnamon.”

I . . . guess . . . the Holiday Harvest Tea is the same as their Orange Spice Tea . . . Too funny!!!

On the package, the ingredients are listed as: “Queen selected black tea, apple pieces, cinnamon bits, coriander, cardamom pods, orange slices, pink peppercorns, cloves and vanilla bean.  Contains caffeine.”
Hmm . . . vanilla bean . . .

I also purchased two of their other holiday teas.
I got Creme Brûlée, which is “inspired by the Queen Mary Tea Room’s famous Burnt Cream Dessert, this tea features a buttery sweet flavor that has no parallel.”
Its ingredients are listed as: “Queen selected Ceylon and Chinese black tea, marigold flowers, vanilla and custard flavoring. Contains caffeine.”
It is reallllllly good!!!!
I also got Christmas Chai, which is a “warm blend of chai spices with cinnamon, peppercorn and thyme. As cozy as it is fragrant, this black tea will bring delight to any chai lover.”
Its ingredients are listed as: “Queen selected Chinese black tea, cloves, citrus peel, thyme and pink peppercorns. Contains caffeine. “
This tea is good with cream and sugar added, yummy!

I love that they put “Queen” in their descriptions . . .

So . . . at the bottom of the box is all this pretty, pretty shredded paper mixed with some purple metallic strips. I HAD to show you how lovely it is!!
