Oh my goodness, I don’t even know where to start! A tea collection from David’s Tea with 24 different teas, one for every single day of December leading up to Christmas?! HOLY MOTHER OF PEARL! I’m so happy and excited I could pirouette around my living room! I love this so much. It’s cute, its’ seasonal, and I WANT IT. This set allows you try 24 different teas (24 tiny single-serve tins, $29.50) and, HELLO, it’s modeled after an advent calendar, like those adorable Christmas chocolate countdown windows!
You know, the ones with 24 perforated cardboard windows, each with a chocolate hiding behind it. You open a window every day until Christmas day and it’s jolly good fun because not only do you have a guaranteed sweet treat each day, it totally gets you pumped up for Christmas and the holidays as the big day inches closer and closer with each passing “window” opening. My brother and I have had many a field day with these chocolate countdown windows and we would always make it a tradition (or at least a point) to open the day’s window and eat our chocolates together. Except for the random days I would forget. I know, I’m awful; how in the world do you forget to eat chocolate?! My brother never forgot. So a few times I ate two chocolates in one day. And, um, there was one time I had to eat three to catch up.
ANYWAY! Now David’s Tea has released a cute-as-a-button countdown to Christmas tea set clearly inspired by the advent calendar and chocolate windows! And this is even better because each tea behind the tiny window is a surprise! The website has a listing of the teas that are included in the set such as Read My Lips, Vanilla Oolong, Chocolate Rocket, and many others. The element of surprise and suspense is still there though because everything is quietly tucked behind the little flaps, just waiting to be opened, brewed, and sipped. Part of me almost doesn’t even want to drink the tea because the tiny tins just look so darn adorable in their sleeves and packaging. But we know that won’t happen. I’ll be steeping and enjoy tea till the cows come home! And for a person like me who drinks tea every single day, this is AMAZING. I am all over this like peanut butter on jelly.
