Douglas Fir tea

This isn’t just a holiday tea, in fact Douglas Fir tips are usually harvested in the spring when they’re young and tender, but there’s something so undeniably festive about enjoying this tea now. If you geek out over the smell of a freshly cut Christmas tree, then you’ll probably die from pure bliss when you get your hands on this stuff.

Don’t worry, it doesn’t taste like a tree; instead it’s very light and clean with aromatics that smell like the sweet notes of a forest. Simply put, it’s one of the most lovely and comforting teas I have ever sipped. And since the tips are harvested from Pacific Northwest tress, every Seattleite should be drinking it.

Tea for two:

3 to 4 cups boiling water (depending on how concentrated you’d like it), two tea bags. Steep for 10 minutes.

Get it from the makers at Juniper Ridge. 20 unbleached tea bags per tin, $12.

Please, please, please…if you do one thing this season be sure to steep yourself a cup of this amazing tea.
