Thanksgiving teas to relax the stressed cook
Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and with it comes that stress of preparing special meals and getting houses ready for celebrating with out of town guests.
Regardless of what your holiday season looks like, here at Whittard we suggest you take five minutes to push other things aside and sit down with a hot cup of British tea.
The British style 3.1 gram teabags have 50% more tea than the US style string and tag 2.1 gram teabags. The teabags are larger and so the tea has more room to brew, resulting in a tastier cup!
So instead of allowing food prep and stress define Thanksgiving, put the kettle on! In the amount of time it takes to drink a cup of tea, we can find many reasons to be thankful.
Here are a few teas that help relax a stressed cook.
Have a wonderful, happy and thankful Thanksgiving!View all Articles

When Alison met Alice
We’re celebrating 150 years since Lewis Carroll first published Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. When it came to creating a limited edition tea set to mark the occasion in style, we knew exactly who to call…
Alison Appleton is one of Britain’s leading designers of tableware, and we’ve been delighted to work with her to create our new150 years of Alice Collection. Since establishing her British Ceramic Design Studio in 1998 she’s worked with a number of international brands and fashion houses, and she draws her influences from all across the world – from the artisan techniques of ceramicists in China, Taiwan and Japan to childhood memories of her grandmother’s tea set. We met Alison over a cuppa to discuss her latest work.
