Nutcracker Sweet Tea

Holiday Tea - Nutcracker Sweet®

Waltzing flowers and sugar plum fairies... a marzipan palace and a nutcracker that turns into a prince. Nothing brings the magic of the holiday season to life better than the world's favorite ballet. Celestial Seasonings has captured that same magic in a tea, Nutcracker Sweet Holiday Black Tea – an irresistible blend of the finest black teas, vanilla, nutty flavors and a dash of cinnamon. Enjoy as an after-dinner treat or the perfect stocking stuffer.

I had the pleasure of drinking this tea while on vacation at my girlfriends house in Pa. last week. The taste reminds me of my Mothers home made rice pudding. I loved it so much that I brought 2 boxes home in my suitcase. Gotta love those vacuum seal bags, it was amazing what I could get in my suitcase when the air was all sucked out of the bags. I also came home with two big bags of instant pumpkin spice latte. I did get a little worried as my carry on was going through the x-ray machine. My bag paused as the X-ray was being taken and it didn't move. I turned around and saw the furrowed brow of the attendant looking at the screen and viewing the contents of my bag. She just kept looking and then finally my bag was spit out and continued down the line. I guess she was trying to figure out what those bags of beige bricks were. I thought to myself, "don't even ask" for I am a confessed pumpkin addict. Can I just tell you how excited I was when I found instant pumpkin spice latte mix. I was one happy little camper. Yum, Yum. Now I think I'll go have a pumpkin muffin and light my pumpkin candle while I sip my pumpkin latte and cover up with my pumpkin colored throw.
