A great thing about Christmas is finding time to share things and activities we love with the people we love. That could be a favourite dish you finally found time to make and share with someone close to you, a get-together baking session with friends or family, or a delicious cup of tea that's so good you don't want to keep it for yourself and can't wait to share it with others. Yes, that includes sharing tea with Santa too. Santas Milk and Cookies from Yawn may be just the perfect blend to do that.
What is Santas Milk and Cookies tea?
Christmas tea blends are great for getting you in the mood for sharing and caring. As Yawn puts it, Santas Milk and Cookies are cookies and milk in one time saving for the big guy. And, for you too, as you won't need to come up with different festive lattes recipes, when you already have a blend that you can prepare in different styles.
One thing's for sure – Santa would love this tea and maybe he would even want to stick around for longer, maybe even for an entire year. While this is undoubtedly a festive blend, no one says you can't drink Christmas teas every day.
Santa's Milk and Cookies is a blend made from black tea and sumac berries and three types of petals – cornflower, safflower and plum. It looks absolutely gorgeous and smells incredibly delicious – like freshly baked buttery cookies. Ingredients in this tea are quite interesting. Sumac berries are mostly used for cooking, rather than blending tea. Plum petals are also not as common as cornflower and safflower petals, and they certainly add beauty to this tea.
How to brew this tea?
To make a cup of Santas Milk and Cookies, steep 1 teaspoon of tea per cup of boiling water for 3 minutes. This is a light, but strong tea, so don't over-brew it. It has a buttery cookie scent and a fresh, deep, slightly sweet flavour with light buttery notes. This tea is perfect for adding milk and sugar. Try it with a teaspoon of condensed milk and some brown sugar or make a proper tea latte. When making latte, use 2 teaspoons of tea leaves and keep the steeping time for 5 minutes.
Santas Milk and Cookies is a brilliant choice for daily drinking, when you don't want intensely flavoured teas or spiced blends, but would still like a festive cuppa. It's great for afternoon tea parties too, especially if you intend to serve tea with a splash of milk. It's available as loose tea and in tea bags.
