Christmas cookies and tea pairings for all your festive events!
The holiday season is in full swing, and this week we're taking a stroll down gingerbread lane, bringing you the best cookies to pair with our handcrafted teas. In this post, we'll look at three Christmas cookie staples and pair them with teas complimenting their unique flavor profile. All of the teas mentioned will be listed at the bottom of this post!
At the top of our list is the classic shortbread cookie. Why? Because the shortbread is like a blank canvas that allows any tea pairing to shine. The light-flavored cookies will take a back seat and let your tea choice shine. Allowing you to pair it with bolder-tasting teas, such as our Cranberry Orange herbal tea.
Our Cranberry Orange is great to enjoy during a cozy winter's night. It will quickly add holiday ambiance to any place and lift your Yuletide spirit! Make yourself a cup of tea, relax, and embrace all the goals you have achieved this year
Gingerbread is the season's flagship cookie, and we would suggest a more subtle-tasting tea for its bold flavoring. Herbal teas such as; our Christmas Delight made with a base of peppermint and cacao nibs, or our new Festive Fireworks blend.
Indulge in the elegance of our Festive Fireworks blend, a refined fusion of Assam black tea, zesty lemongrass, delicate calendula, soothing lavender, and tart barberries. This exquisite blend offers a symphony of flavors, perfect for adding a touch of luxury to your holiday celebrations.
One of our favorite holiday traditions here at the Catalyst Tea Company is getting together and decorating sugar cookies. Having a cookie decorating party is the perfect opportunity to break out the tea! We recommend pairing our Cacao-Mint Rooibos with sugar cookies.
This herbal tea blend delivers a sweet and slightly nutty taste, with warm and woodsy notes of rooibos, complimented by aromatic vanilla bean and cacao. Native to South Africa, rooibos means red bush, it is also known as red tea.
This week we're asking you, what is your favorite Christmas cookie? Are you a gingerbread person? A sugar cookie monster? Let us know in the comments!
