Easter Sunday is this weekend. Whether you’re hosting a gathering of friends and neighbors, or just spending time with your immediate family, you can enhance the occasion with the right teas. If the sun is shining, you might be throwing an Easter egg hunt in the yard. If weather is still chilly, you could be looking for the perfect cup of tea to go with your Sunday brunch. Whichever direction your plans take you, we’re confident there’s the perfect tea for your Easter Sunday.
Family Fun Outside
If your Easter Sunday plans involve hundreds of colorful, plastic eggs and a few thousand calories of candy, iced tea goes best with your day. For adults, go for a naturally sweet iced tea that will curb any temptation you might have to break into a bag of jelly beans or chocolate eggs. Summer Peach’s bold black tea base will keep your energy up as you entertain the kids and the fruity peach flavors are even better when enjoyed in the sun. For the kids, steer clear of caffeine and give them a sweet treat of their own. Don’t let 9:00 PM‘s name fool you. It’s just as delicious when enjoyed as a daytime iced tea as it is when you drink it hot at the end of the day. With a base honey-esque rooibos and hints of bright mint, 9:00 PM is just sweet enough to satisfy your younger guests.
If cold or rainy weather is keeping you indoors this Easter, the only eggs you might be searching out are the ones in your fridge. Make sure you have a season-appropriate tea to accompany your Easter Sunday brunch. Even though the weather is gloomy, your tea doesn’t have to be! Hot tea is a great idea, but floral hot tea is an even better idea. Oolong Rose and Tuscany are both delicate enough to let your frittata, french toast, and fresh fruit be the stars of your brunch spread. Both teas also contain rose petals, which give the perfect depth and flavor for a midday meal.
If you don’t observe Easter Sunday and this weekend is an opportunity to unwind, consider enjoying cocktails containing Hibiscus Cooler, a fruity and tart tea that’s best served iced. Grab about a pound of fresh fruit (and maybe a bottle of wine!) to make your own Hibiscus Cooler Sangria. Hibiscus Cooler also makes for a delicious mimosa base, too. Strongly brew Hibiscus Cooler, chill, and then add a splash of Prosecco.
