Tea’s the season at Sloane, and we’re in the spirit to slow the pace and embrace the times. Whether it be hosting an elaborate holiday dinner, getting together with friends or simply getting cozy by the fire, there is no better way to savour a moment than curled up with cup of holiday cheer. This time, we chose eggnog.
The leaves are falling, the holidays are looming, and the most wonderful time of the year can almost be the most stressful. If you’re anything like us, sometimes you need a reminder to slow down and smell the cocoa. While tea may be our obvious drink of choice, we can’t deny the sweet satisfaction that accompanies that first sip of warm cocoa. We’ve decided to give this cold weather classic a Sloane spin, and what better way to do this than with a tea infusion! The perfect pairing: Our Cocoa Chai Chai, a rich masala based tea featuring whole green cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and clove, topped with sumptuous Brazilian cocoa nibs. The result: A sweet and spicy treat we’re sure you’ll make over and over again.
Autumn…One of our absolute favourite seasons. Maybe it’s the way nature works its magic with the changing of the leaves, the cool, crisp air, or maybe it’s the comfort a pie brings when wrapped in buttery flaky pie dough. No matter what it is, it’s a time for comfort and festive celebration with our loved ones.
March has been a month full of so many delightful happenings, two of our favourites being Persian New Year, and the first day of Spring. We’re so ready for the city to fill with beautiful blooms and warm sunshine, and we wanted to come up with a tea infused recipe inspired by the change in season to share with all of you.
We love the entire Sloane tea collection, but over the years its become quite clear that our customers definitely have a favourite- in fact this particular blend has developed an almost cult-like following! If you haven’t guessed already, it’s our Heavenly Cream, a rich vanilla bergamot Ceylon black tea that seems to enchant every tea lover it touches, and there’s no better way to enjoy it than in a fluffy, indulgent tea latte!
There are few things that provide that festive Christmas feeling more than a hot cup of spiced apple cider. Left to brew on the stovetop, this sweet and spicy beverage boasts enough fragrance to fill your entire home with the scent of holiday cheer, and it’s caffeine free, so the entire family can enjoy!
Every family has a collection of favourite holiday recipes that they enjoy together year after year, and one of our favourite festive activities here at Sloane is putting our own tea-infused twist on those beloved classics. Today we’re sharing a very special recipe that originally belonged to the grandmother of one of our staffers- Whipped Shortbread Snowballs!
We love a hot cup of tea, but sometimes that’s just not enough: sometimes we want to have our tea, and eat it too! With that in mind we’ve started experimenting in the kitchen with some of our favourite blends, and we’re so excited to announce we’ll be sharing our creations, as well as a few of the creations that chefs, bakers, baristas and bartenders from all over have dreamed up right here on the Sloane Tea Blog!
