Holiday entertaining. Tea and food pairings to wow your guests

Wondering how to work tea into your holiday gatherings? She’s covered everything from cocktails to dessert. I’m definitely going to have to give some of these ideas a try when I host my family for Christmas Eve dinner.

Oollo Tea’s Four Seasons Oolong

Michelle at One More Steep reviews a delicious sounding oolong from Canadian brand Oollo Tea. I just love her photography style and thorough yet straightforward writing. Notes of roasted chestnuts would really hit the spot right now!

Classic Tea Time Christmas Wreath
