Holidays wouldn’t be the holidays without special drinks! Festive sippers warm body and soul, but teas with added spices and herbs make fabulous winter drinks. Choose teas with flavours you love, or try our Mulled Cranberry or Chocolate Orange, then add seasonal fruit and berries, spices and herbs, and a splash of spirits to create a one-of-a kind mulled holiday drink you’ll want to sip all winter long!
