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.

We're more than halfway to Christmas!
