I am coming down with a cold, my throat is very sore and I’ve got a stuffy nose. Crap.
I picked up Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Green Tea at my health food store the other day and boy, am I glad I did. It is REALLY good. It has the taste of peppermint sticks, creamy vanilla bean and a hint of cinnamon. I added a packet of stevia and a splash of milk to make it sweet, white and creamy.
This makes it feel like I am drinking an expensive, hot drink that is full of calories, when really, I am drinking something full of antioxidants, and all kinds of things that are good for me, and it is sugar free! There is just something about peppermint when one has a stuffy nose! Ahhh…
I just bought a bunch of red and white, candy cane striped coffee mugs at my local Dollar Tree. They are square and really cute. I am planning on using them in some way as Christmas gifts for teachers. They would be perfect stuffed with these tea bags, (they smell SO good), and a candy cane, then wrapped with cellophane and tied with a red bow. Great, simple gift for any tea lover’s out there!
