A direct line can be drawn between my love for tea and my mom. Growing up alongside a woman who never met a cup of English breakfast, chamomile, or lemon ginger she didn’t immediately warm to left me with little to no choice but to love tea too. My tastes are a little more adventurous than hers (turmeric is my upset stomach go-to), so when I was given the chance to try a cinnamon and clove holiday favorite that sells out every year, I jumped on it.
The Winter Dream Tea from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf is an earthy rooibos and black tea that’s delicately sweet with a hint of spice. The cinnamon and clove in each tea bag balance each other out in a way that allows each flavor to sing without either overpowering the comforting taste of the brew. I added a splash of milk to my first cup after it steeped for about five minutes, which tempered the strength of the tea slightly and made it taste just like a creamy, sippable bit of the holidays. It’s easy to see why this tea sells out every year as soon as temperatures drop and festive feelings rise.
A tin of 20 triangular Winter Dream Tea bags is typically $13, but it’s on sale this week only for just $10.
