Nothing says Christmas like a holiday tea. These teas can include special winter flavors or even special guests like Santa Claus, himself. The idea is to feel the holiday spirit and get something to take home — whether it be a physical tea or just good conversation.
These events can be held virtually, in-person or by takeout. There are no set rules other than to have fun and stay safe and holiday tea is not limited to one type of establishment, it’s a universal experience rooted in sharing a drink with loved ones.
