Behind the Name
Even if you don't have a crackling fire, this tea will fill you with the joys of winter. While most blended teas have a black tea base, this blend is unique in that it employs pu erh to give The Winter a satisfying hint of smokiness. Add refreshing peppermint, the spice of pink peppercorns and delicious dark chocolate nibs, and you have yourself the perfect snow day beverage. Add a dash of sugar to this spice. Sugar, spice and everything nice.
