Downton Abbey Christmas Black Tea is a delicious blend that tastes like chai-meets-mulled-cider. It’s spicy, rich, wine-like, and a little bit fruity.
“Wine like?” you ask anxiously. “If it’s Christmas… I am looking for wine-like.”
Yes! Unfortunately, there is no liquor within it, but it tries. It gets pretty close.
And trust me, folks: I understand the holidays making you want to reach for the booze.
I type this post from my family’s home in Virginia, where I violated a Time of Tea Law. I settled in with a novel and this book at around 7 p.m. after dinner, and was admonished.
“Tea is with dessert,” my mother said. “We have that at 8 p.m.”
“I could make myself another tea… at 8 p.m,” I said, confused.
My father, who came back from walking the dogs, spotted the mug in my hand and said, “TEA? ALREADY?”
And I said “WHY SO MANY LIMITS ON THE TEA AROUND HERE?”
THAT is the kind of family interaction we celebrate at the holidays! Granted, this is Thanksgiving week, but I’m sure there will be similar interactions on my husband’s family’s side at Christmas.
Feel free to drink this whenever you get frustrated with your family and imagine it’s something stronger.
Here’s the scoop!
