As a subscriber to the Steepster Select program, I receive a box with three different teas. Each month there is a different theme. This month’s theme is “The Big Chill.” The box also includes a postcard size card that offers some insight on the theme, as well as the teas that are chosen.
Here is the description of The Big Chill:
For when winter seeps into the bones and dull skies numb the spirit, we have just the teas to warm you through and through.
A smokey black tea, fire crackling at your feet.
A chai with warming spices, heat spreading from sip to fingertips.
A peppermint-blended green tea, the remembrance of holidays past.
Seasons greetings from Steepster.
This month, I have already reviewed the smoky black tea and the chai with warming spices, but have not yet reviewed the peppermint-blended green tea. That’s because I already reviewed this tea back in November, and since it was such a short time ago, I didn’t feel the need to review it once again. My thoughts on this tea haven’t changed: it still tastes crisp and minty and refreshing. However, I didn’t want to let January close without having mentioned the third tea.
The teas that were chosen for this month’s Steepster Select were all wonderful teas and were perfect for the chosen theme. The smoky tones of the Lapsang Souchong evokes thoughts of a warm, cozy fire roaring in the fireplace. The spices in the chai warmed me from the inside out, helping me to stave off winter’s cold. And this delicious Moroccan Mint from Earthbound Tea is cool and sweet, reflective of the crisp chill in the air.
I can’t wait to discover what next month’s Steepster Select has in store!
