Soothing Hot Drinks for Wintertime

When it’s cold and dark out, there’s nothing like cozying up and enjoying a hot, flavorful beverage. I’ve come across several yum soothing blends and wanted to share them with you, check them out below!


Teecino Dandelion Dark Roast

This certified organic roast is comprised of carob, chicory, dandelion root, ramon seeds, and natural coffee flavor. It’s calming and gives you a rich feeling and flavor. If you want to jazz it up you can add soy/almond milk and some brown rice or maple syrup. I think it’s great as is, so you might find you don’t need those either, but if your feeling like you want something on the sweeter side, go for it.

Mitoku Roasted Barley Tea

This roasted barley tea is made from whole unhulled barley that’s been coarsely ground. It’s a refreshing beverage that will satisfy those who crave a dark-roasted flavor without the caffeinated buzz.


Steep Echo Bloom Tea

This immunity boosting tea is made of of organic olive leaf, peppermint, echinacea root, licorice root, thyme, rosemary, and natural cranberry flavor. Steep Echo’s entire tea line is based around olive leaf, which is sourced from their orchards in Santa Barbara, CA. Olive trees have long been regarded for its health benefits, many of which are attributed to a compound called oleuropein that is found in both its leaves and fruit. Oleuropein is known to help fight infection, provides nearly double the antioxidants of green tea, four times the antioxidants of vitamin C, and also promotes increased energy and cardiovascular health!

    I love the Teeccino dark roast. It has a coffee flavor and it is caffeine free so I can enjoy a cup in the afternoon. I have wanted to try the Tero mushroom coffee but I haven’t yet. I have a powdered mushroom blend that I add to coffee once in a while.
    My fave beverage is jasmine green tea with milk Oolong tea. I discovered it in Seattle and it is my go to. I adore tea, just smelling it and sipping it makes me happy. Such a simple way to add brightness to the moment. And it always tastes better with a friend.
