Autumn in a Mug

For me, seasons are defined (and enjoyed) by their respective beverages. Spring/Summer is iced coffee, strawberry lemonade, and gin + tonics. Fall/Winter is warm lattes, spiced teas, and bourbon. Let’s take it slow and just focus on the spiced tea category for now.

I want to share with you my Chai tea ritual…

First, treat yourself to one of our Mugs and/or Tea Brewers. We also have a Tea Set that would just heighten your whole tea drinking experience. Because the act of tea making + tea drinking IS an experience, a ceremony even. In the morning, it warms and awakens your mind + body for a full day of living. In the evening, it brings everything back to center and back to simple for a restful night’s reset. Don’t down play these sweet moments of self care.
