As the days get shorter, there’s perhaps nothing as comforting as a hot cup of tea and a cozy candle. Here are some of my favorite blends to sniff and sip as I head into winter:
Teas, Candles, & More Cold-Weather Treats
If you’ve ever wondered if you need a wick trimmer in your life, the answer is “yes.” This candle gift set includes everything you need to up your candle game. Available in several scents – I recommend Summit.
While I adore candles, therapeutic essential oils diffused in soothing steam are pretty hard to beat – especially in the winter months. This ceramic diffuser is beautiful and functional, offered in several colors (I ordered in Matcha Green).
I love the warm blend of scents like sandalwood, amber, and Turkish rose in this candle. I’m a big fan of Public Goods in general: streamlined, minimalist design and a great business model.
Charles Dickens Black Tea Blend by Simpson & Vail.
I saw this selection of Literary Teas at my local bookstore and had to pick up this yummy, smooth black blend. Perfect to sip while reading (or watching!) A Christmas Carol, right?
Christmas Tea from Light of Day Organics.
Orange, cinnamon, and clove add a festive hint of warmth to this black tea blend. I visited this organic-certified, biodynamic-certified Michigan – yes, MICHIGAN – tea farm last summer and was so charmed.
Herbal North Star Blend from DAVIDsTEA.
With citrus and hazelnut plus sweet little stars, this herbal blend is as beautiful as it is delicious. A great gift!
Warming ginger and the sweetness of cinnamon and vanilla make this black tea extra-cozy.
