5 teas to help get you through winter

Move over coffee…tea is the hot drink of choice among millennials.

With temps dipping below freezing, and many people fighting off the cold bug, the time for tea is now. Here are a few local brands that will help you get through this beastly month with grace. Pinkies out!

Mrs. Kelly’s Teas https://mrskellystea.com/
Mindy Kelly and her family run this custom tea blending house in Northeast. I love her Cozy Chamomile, a caffeine free blend of mints, cinnamon, and chamomile. Find them at co-ops, farmers markets, and online.

Tea Source http://www.teasource.com/
There are three locations for this tea shop, where tea geeks congregate and you can buy all the gear. Try the black Jin Jun Mei for a kick, or buy an exotic Black Chrysanthemum which blooms in your cup.

Verdant Tea http://verdanttea.com/
This Minneapolis tea seller buys only from small family farms in China, and you can shop by farmer. They also have a try 5 for $5 deal. The vanilla citrus spice has a lot of flavor and a sense of sweetness without any sugar.

Bingley’s Teas http://www.bingleysteas.com/
For the Brit lovers, the tea to drink while you watch Downton Abbey is perhaps Bingley’s Jane Austen series, packaged in fetching boxes.

Grey Duck Chai http://grayduckchai.com/
Locally brewed chai can be had outside the coffee shop with growlers and bottles of this delicious drink. LOVE the burnt sugar and ginger blend, especially with a nip of bourbon.
