You could look at the picture above and think that since it's the beginning of November, I'm starting to get in the holiday spirit. But I usually refrain from that until after Thanksgiving. After that, all bets are off--the Christmas music and holiday earrings come out. =) No, I use this mug and drink this tea all year long. I love the mug because of its shape and capacity, and I love things with snowflakes. As for the Christmas Morning tea, I first discovered it several years ago when Central Market was carrying some of the Stash holiday teas around Christmas. (The Holiday Chai is another favorite.) I bought a bunch, but eventually ran out. The next year I had a harder time finding it, and eventually decided to just order it online directly from the source. I buy it in loose tea as well, but sometimes the tea bags are handy and quick. I drink a variety of black tea blends from Stash. I just got a new order, and I love it when all the bags and boxes are full and I have lots of choices. =) It disturbs all the southerners that I work with--the ones who mostly drink tea iced and quite sweet--but I pretty much always put milk in my (black) tea, along with a bit of sugar. During the lovely Texas summers I can only drink it early in the morning or just before bed, but we're finally approaching the time of year when I can handle hot tea during the day as well. And yes, I drink black tea--not decaf--before bed. Not much keeps me awake if I'm tired, and there's no shortage of tired around here lately.
(I have no affiliation with Stash, I just happen to like their teas.)
