I want to apologise to why I havn’t been writing on my blog. I am getting ready to go back to Dublin for Christmas!! I am so excited cant wait to see everyone.

Toronto in winter is beautiful! I love the snow! Yes it is freezing, -17 (feels -26) but its bearable when you have the right clothes and the snow makes it look so pretty so its not that bad. But where I am going I need to prepare myself…snow boots is on the list and maybe a balaclava (what I have been told) I am excited that i’ll be living in a new city but so nervous as how will I bare the cold but look its an experience ha!!

I am going to miss Toronto but can’t wait for whats in store for us. I am thankfull for my time here. I have met so many people who will be in my life forever. I am going to miss Teavana and the people I work with. This city will always be in my heart and I hope to come back here one day. You never know I might be back sooner than I expect. Toronto it has been a pleasure but there’s no place like home…especially for christmas 🙂

White Chocolate Peppermint

So working in Teavana is exciting especially when you recieve new teas! There is so many seasonal teas now – Pumpkin spiced bruleè, Spiced apple cider and Orange chocolate spice which are all lovely by the way but one of the new teas ‘White Chocolate Peppermint’ is by far my favourite seasonal tea.

It is a Rooibos which is a red bush from South Africa. It has a balancing peppermint flavour with both white and dark chocolate pieces to infuse a decedent, yet calorie and caffeine free rooibos blend. Its blended with the highest quality long-cut red rooibos that gives the overall blend an elevated taste of natural carmel-like sweetness.

When you first taste it you get this warm chocolaty taste and then the refreshing peppermint comes in. You brew this for 5 mins. For every 8oz of water use 1.5 tsp. I use 3-4 tsp for my big mug and a dash of milk to make it more creamy.

Its one of my favourite flavoured teas we have. I recently filled my red tin with this beautiful tea. The beauty of rooibos and herbal teas is that theres no caffeine in them so you can drink them right before bedtime! This is a perfect gift for someone for Christmas. Go and get some, you wont be disappointed. What you smell is what you get in Teavana I can promise you that! 🙂
