Monday, November 26th, 2012 by Lisa

These cold Fall nights have me drinking a lot of tea.  When I received my sample of Peet’s Holiday Blend Coffee and Teas, I was really excited!  New teas to try!  My husband was really happy that there was caffeinated coffee included as he is not a tea drinker.

The first thing I noticed when I took the tea tins out of the box was how festive they are!  Perfect for gift giving!  I received both Peet’s Winter Solstice Signature Blends tea and the Holiday Breakfast Blend tea and a bag of Peet’s Holiday Blend Coffee.  I also received a really lovely box of Peet’s Good Hope Spice Blend Tea Bags (pictured below).

I first tried the Good Hope Spice Blend.  I loved it.  I’ve been drinking a cup just about every afternoon since receiving it.  It’s very smooth and not spicy at all.  It’s great with a biscotti or a Christmas cookie!

My husband has been drinking Peet’s Holiday Blend Coffee for about a week now.  He usually doesn’t say much about his coffee, unless he really hates it, but when I asked him he did say he liked it.  I myself don’t do caffeinated coffee, so I sadly haven’t tried it, but it does have a wonderful aroma while it’s brewing!

I realized when I opened the Winter Solstice Tea Tin, that I didn’t quite know what to do with it!  It is loose tea and not tea bags.  It smelled wonderful, but not having the proper equipment to craft the perfect cup of “real” tea, I closed the tin back up until I could think of a way to try it!  I mean, I don’t even own a teapot.  I usually nuke water in the microwave and then stick a tea bag in it!  (Yikes.  I know.)

So, I went out and bought a tea ball!  It worked perfectly!  I had a lovely, aromatic cup of tea!

Now, I haven’t opened my tin of Holiday Solstice Blend Tea yet, but I’m sure it will be great, just like the other two teas!

Peet’s Coffee & Tea can be purchased online on their website Peets.com.
