Tea Advent Calendar


My Christmas Tea Advent is officially finished. The trouble was me wandering around tea sections of stores trying to find teas that I thought I might like. As it is I have a number of herbal teas and I’m not terribly assured that they are going to be quite my cup of tea, if you will.

I was introduced to The Tea Mix which is basically a site where you can mix and match different types of teas and only order a packet. I was more than impressed with this concept, but I was less than impressed with their $15 minimum purchase. They also didn’t have the Christmas Stash teas that I really wanted for my Advent Celebration. Nonetheless, it may be a consideration for the future.

Our Christmas tree is up and I am ready for the next month. It’s going to be gloriously Christmas-filled. I’ve had this angle all along to do only DIY Christmas gifts. I have, unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), remembered something: I am not crafty. I want to be. Oh, I so desperately want to be crafty. But I’m just not. I’ve not been blessed with this gift. I will do some DIY gifts that I already have the supplies for and I’m pretty sure I can’t muck up, but for the rest on my list I’ll just be setting myself a low price point and shopping around. Oh, the joys of living in a place where shopping around is a most viable option.

Enough rambling, however, and without further ado:

Tea Advent

  1. You didn’t end up spending 15 dollars on 25 different teas? I had trouble finding small quantities to buy. Even packs with 4 or 5 flavors were 4 or 5 dollars a box. But I definitely understand the Christmas tea desires. Yum. So how did you end up assembling all these teas and how much did it cost? I was fully prepared to throw down 30 dollars for this: http://www.davidstea.com/24-days-of-tea?&TF=0C88C9665439&DEID= But they were sold out when I got to them!

    1. Oh my goodness! That David’s Tea business looks fabulous! :)

      And no, I didn’t because I was only interested in purchasing like one or two packets of each tea and they were, at most, $.50 a pop. So I went to Ollie’s and Big Lots and Ross and purchase variety packs mostly and then pulled out the flavors that equaled love to me. :) Total cost for all the teas I purchased specifically for this project, hmm, maybe $12. And I still have lots of extra tea bags to put into mugs and add as Christmas presents. :)
