Winter mocktails spiced tea sangria and hot not toddy

‘Tis the season, and as we all know, sometimes all the bustle can feel like overload. Happily, we’ve got just the thing for feeling festive and offering yourself a little wellness boost with these winter mocktails. Our ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi Teas make a beautiful base for sparkle, spice, and everything nice as it suits your mood, throughout the holidays and beyond.

Revered in India for thousands of years, the sacred plant Tulsi (Holy Basil) is also known as “queen of herbs”, “the incomparable one”, and “elixir of life”. Packed with active plant compounds, Tulsi has been shown to support the digestive, immune, and metabolic systems while nourishing the body, mind, and spirit. All our organic teas harness that potency and abundance while infusing unique, delicious flavor and supporting regenerative agriculture and family farmers, too. With all these layers of goodness, it’s no wonder these mocktails are so delightful–true examples of how easy it is to embrace the holiday spirit, without all the spirits.

Try these two beauteous beverages, and play with all our tea blends to create your own winter mocktail!
