Have I ever found a great tea for this holiday season! I was looking for a good tea for the ladies' brunch last week, and this Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice caught my eye. When I opened it, I immediately fell in love with the scent, a spicy, cinnamony, gingery blend that smells just like the Christmas spice cookies my mother-in-law makes, but I didn't get to try any until yesterday. Oh, my! This is delicious. And you can believe that, coming from a southern gal who doesn't really like hot tea all that much - I much prefer iced tea!
Here is the description from the Celestial Seasonings website:
Bengal is a geographical region that today covers parts of India and Bangladesh, and forms part of the natural habitat of the majestic Royal Bengal Tiger. Chai—a spiced tea typically made with black tea leaves—is very popular in India. Bengal Spice is a naturally caffeine free version of this traditional brew made with herbs instead of tea leaves, as well as cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and a hint of vanilla. Adding a touch of cream or milk delivers a truly authentic chai experience!
