‘Tis the season to enjoy cinnamon spice tea with your favorite holiday goodies, suggest our friends at the Fitzpatrick Hotel in New York City. Their “Fitz to a Tea” program has a different tea theme each month of the year.

You can add a cinnamon stick and your favorite spices to an unflavored black tea—toss a cinnamon stick, cloves and allspice into the teapot and infuse with the tea—or purchase spiced tea.

One of the most popular branded spiced teas is Constant Comment, developed by Ruth Bigelow of New York City in 1946 (read the story). Today, it’s available as loose black tea, in tea bags, in decaffeinated bags, and in a green tea version. You can find them all at Bigelowtea.com.

Along with your own favorite recipies—try the Constant Comment spice cake recipe below.

 

Invite friends over to enjoy your tree, or decorate with a couple of non-denominational poinsettia plants. ‘Tis also the season to call people you haven’t been in touch with in a while, and mix new friends with old.
