No, you don’t have to be a proper Brit to enjoy a nice cup of tea every day. As a tea lover myself, I down close to six cups of it a day, whether it be my morning dandelion tea, midmorning Irish breakfast tea, spearmint tea with lunch or sleep-inducing tea before bed. I simply cannot get enough of it.
The beauty of tea is that there are so many flavors and combinations, making gifting during the holidays truly endless. Below, we’ve rounded up the best options to bring some extra warmth to any tea lover’s day.
