Christmas Cookie Tea Party


Tea parties and Christmas go hand in hand.  The Joy of Baking is a great resource for holiday cookie recipes and I have chosen a few of their videos to share with you today.  Under each video I have given a suggestion for the type of tea that might pair well with the featured cookie.

Sugar cookies pair will with a variety of teas.  Many people enjoy a spicy tea during the holidays.  If that is you consider serving Market Spice Tea (from Market Spice)  or Christmas Cookie Tea (from Tea Source).  Sugar cookies also go well with a Golden Yunnan (try Rishi Tea ).


The sweet almond taste of the Candy Cane cookie pairs well with a hearty Assam or Keemun black tea.  These teas can be purchased from a variety of purveyors.  ( I suggest Teas Etc or Tea Source)


These mini whoopie pies are sweet and creamy.  They will pair well with an English Afternoon or English Breakfast tea with its robust flavor.  (again I suggest Tea Etc. or Tea Source)
