I have a hard time drinking water through out the day, which is why I consider myself a proud tea drinker.  Having tea on my desk and at home helps me stay hydrated and awake through out the day.  It isn't unusual for me to have a few cups of tea a day.  I am not alone though, did you know that tea is second only to water as the most widely consumed beverage in the world?  Makes total sense that January is Hot Tea month with stats like that! So, how do I Tea Proudly?

There are two flavors of tea that I always have on hand at work and at home.  When I need a little kick to get moving I always pick my very favorite Vanilla Chai Tea from Bigelow but when I need something warm to drink before bedtime I brew some Bigelow Cozy Chamomile tea.  Perfect way to get water in for the day but also slow down for bed.  

Like I said before, January is Hot Tea month and it has really come in handy for the last couple of weekends this month to be celebrating tea.  I have had a few small friend gatherings that I have presented my favorite teas but with a twist and a yummy treat.  Tea time!

Bigelow is always my number 1 choice when I am stocking up on my tea. Not just because they have my favorite flavors but because they have always brewed the best in my opinion. Bigelow is family owned - 3 generations and knows how important freshness, quality tea and ingredients are to tea drinkers like myself.  I feel proud to serve my guests this tea and it offers so much more than a nice warm drink - it brings us moments as friends to reconnect and take time for one another over tea.

A fancy treat for Tea Time that literally takes less than 30 minutes to make.  So good too.  I LOVE any brie and fruit combination.  That being said, you could use any jam of your choice to twist this recipe a bit.

For those tea lovers that cannot have caffeine it is important to have some Cozy Chamomile on hand.  I enjoyed the maple flavor in the chai tea latte I created that I decided that maple syrup would be perfect with my chamomile tea as well.

  1. Yum! I have everything everything in my kitchen to make the Maple Vanilla Chai tea latte right now. Those tartlets look super easy to make, too! #client

  2. Being British I grew up drinking tea but really only Assam or any kind of black tea, with milk of course. Its really only the last few years that I have become a little more adventurous and tried some different flavors. The sweet teas like the vanilla and peppermint as so refreshing. I didn't realize it was hot tea month, but that makes me want to go and put the kettle on and enjoy a cuppa.

  3. I love a good chai tea latte, but I would never have thought of making a latte with chamomile tea! What a unique idea! And those tartlets? Holy moly, those look so perfect! Pinning to make these soon!

  4. I enjoy drinking tea but I'm more of a coffee lover. It's my first time to read about Bigelow since it's not a brand that's available in our local grocery. Vanilla Chai Tea and chamomile seem tasty and relaxing as drinks.

  5. I love hot tea, but I always forget to make it. I have a wide variety of different tea that has been given to me as gifts that I need to drag out and invite some friends over. The tartlets look delish -- but I'd swap the blackberry out. I'm one of those crazy texture people, and the seeds of blackberries flip me out. :)

  6. I have never made tartlets before and have NEVER had a blackberry. I am certainly missing out. This looks pretty tasty. I know more of my friends are drinking tea now more than ever.

  7. I am not a big tea drinker, but I do like a good chai latte. I am also a big fan of real maple syrup, so I bet that Maple Vanilla Chai Latte would be delicious! Those brie and blackberry tartlets look incredible as well.
