A Very Merry Christmas Tea with Geek+Tea

December 15 was International Tea Day. So it very was fitting that on the 15th, I attended "A Very Merry Christmas Tea" hosted by Geek+Tea--a local business that grows and blends organic and direct-from-farm teas!

I love the unique artwork and names that celebrate sci-fi shows and books, and that the teas were available in 15 gram samplers. I had a lovely chat with the proprietor, Alyson, who encouraged us to try out any of the teas on display.

Sample #1: Shire Organic Green Tea was inspired by Lord of the Rings. It was a nice delicate green tea (I forgot to take a photo. Whoops!).

Sample #2: 221B Organic Black Tea was inspired by Sherlock Holmes' London address. This smoooooth black tea blend had a delicious vanilla and coffee flavour!

Sample #3: Snow Maple Organic White Tea was inspired by Game of Thrones. I really enjoyed the light sweet flavour.

Sample #4: One Apple a Day Keeps the Dark Lord Away was inspired by Harry Potter. It was a very tasty apple chai blend.

Samples #2-4 came home with me, as well as some additional teas.

 Days 1-12 of my customized Tea Advent Calendar.
We're more than halfway to Christmas!

One of my tabletop trees is decorated with teabags that were too pretty to throw away.


  1. All of those teas sound delicious, Margie! I have never seen the GoT but the tea sounds wonderful. I love maple anything. Great idea decorating your table top tree with pretty teabags. Thank you for sharing and I will add your post to my party. Merry Christmas, Margie!
