Discover the Magic of our Christmas Tea Collection
October 29, 2021
This year, Christmas is all about heart-warming, magical moments and holding your loved ones extra close. It’s those little things that make it extra special; the thrill of finding the perfect gift, the excitement of driving home on Christmas Eve or finally snuggling up around the fire together with your favourite warming winter drink. There’s nothing quite like that cosy Christmas feeling!
Here at Bird & Blend, we want to help you spread a little magic, so we’ve created the ulTEAmate Christmas range for you to take Ho-Ho-home with you this year! So let's 'steep into Christmas'!
If you’re looking for a warm and fuzzy feeling this Christmas, look no further than our Mulled Cider blend! Our combination of aromatic winter spices & sweet spiced apple create a comforting and mellow toddy, perfect for curling up with on a chilly evening.
Our Co-Founder and Chief Tea Mixologist Krisi was the brains behind our Christmas flavours, she says, “Our past ‘mulled’ themed-teas have been so popular in Christmases gone by so I wanted to build on the spiced fruit tea toddy theme with this classic flavour.”
You can even whip up a batch of our Mulled Cider Sticky Chai, add in a cheeky dash of dark rum or brandy for the ulTEAmate winter warmer!
Through popular demand our returning award-winning black tea blend is full to the brim with marshmallow-y, chocolate-y, coconut-y goodness! These luxurious flavours create the perfect sweet treat for you to relax by the fire with. This blend is perfect for those sweet-tooth's who want to take their Christmas cuppa to the next level!
“I was aiming for Snowball cake balls, note the cocktail! Also I had a luxury hot chocolate by the fire in mind when creating this blend, with added melted marshmallows!”, Krisi says. Oh yes, did we mention it had gooey vegan marshmallows in it? It does!
For the ulTEAmate magical Christmas experience, try the Snowball Marshmallow MEGA-Latte Kit. Brew the fan-fave flavour with our hand-painted vegan snow person to top this dreamy, creamy drink.
Taking inspiration from one of our favourite Christmas songs, this blend is our tribute to creamy Irish coffee. With sweet vanilla rooibos, coffee beans and chocolate-y notes, it’s a Christmas dream come true.
Krisi says, “The name is in homage to my favourite Christmas song by The Pogues. I wanted to create an Irish cream style tea, with a rooibos base to add another caffeine-free blend to our range.”
You can even make it as the perfect caffeine-free 'Espresso MarTEAni' so raise your mugs (or martini glasses), Teabirds & join us for a singalong… ‘& the bells are ringing out!’
Our award-winning Gingerbread Chai started its Bird & Blend journey in Christmas 2012, but it’s turned out to be so mouth-wateringly popular that we’ve made this special flavour available all year round. This spiced gingerbread rooibos was made in homage to the Nordic city of Bergen where they build a life-sized gingerbread city every Christmas. Wow!
This year, raise your Gingerbread Chai game by purchasing one of our MEGA-Latte Kits, including some delightfully delicious Gingerbread Chai infused biscuits for you to sprinkle on top! Or if you're chai obsessed, get your hands on our brand new Gingerbread Chai Candle.
Whenever you see these little bites of heaven in the supermarket, you know it’s Christmas! Lebkuchen are a classic German Christmas tradition; think gingerbread, but softer & cut into the cutest shapes! We love them so much, we’ve created a whole blend dedicated to the delicious treat, and have added our own decadent salted caramel notes for pure Christmas bliss.
“I tried a salted Lebkuchen chocolate caramel at the Great Taste judging in 2019 and knew I had to try and recreate this into a tea!” Krisi says & it went down a treat for sure!
Love lebkuchen? Then you have to smell our brand new Salted Caramel Lebkuchen Candle... These hand-poured, soy wax candles are the perfect indie business alternative to your favourite yankee candle.
This rich and decadent blend will transport you straight to a winter-wonderland! This brand new Christmas treat has been designed for our Teabirds to indulge in and is sure to tickle your taste buds with its dark chocolate and minty flavours.
All of our Christmas Collection blends above come in loose tea or 100% plastic-free tea bags, so you can be sure to spread a little joy no matter how you enjoy your brew! Or want to try them all? Get your hands on our Christmas Tea Gift Box!
Our blends come in a varieTEA of magical ways to enjoy your tea! So try them either as a MEGA-latte, as Sticky Chai heated on the stove or even surround yourself with Christmassy aromas & enjoy them as a candle!
