Why We Love Loose-Leaf Chai Tea During the Holidays

November is finally here, and the holidays are just around the corner! At Pekoe Sip House, we are preparing for the busy season ahead with a host of delicious and healthy warming beverages to keep energy high, colds at bay, and metabolism churning through the hearty meals ahead.

The colder weather brings with it cozy sweaters, family gatherings, and of course, our favorite fall and winter spices like cinnamon and ginger. It also brings travel-packed schedules, crowded shopping trips, and rich holiday foods. In the face of all of this excitement, a calm moment with a cup of chai tea can prepare your body for the season ahead.

6 Reasons to Bring Pekoe Tea on Vacation

John Denver left on a jet plane, and Wham begged to be woken up before the go-go. Whatever’s playing on your roadtrippin’ travel playlist, one things for certain: music and kickin’ back go together like PB & J. But did you know that vacation’s best friend is tea?

It’s true. From beach lounging to campfire story-swapping, you can bring Pekoe’s travel-easy green tea and black tea along with you to enjoy tea’s energizing benefits — the all-natural kind that help you make the most of your unplugged away-time.

Save us some s’mores, okay?

1. Body boarding requires energy. — When you’re barefoot on the beach rushing into the waves to catch the kahuna, you’re going to need the kind of nourishing and clarifying energy green tea brings, so that you can boost that must-have eye-hand coordination, bro. After all, 90% of off-board nose-dives happen because energy counted hang ten.*

*We made that statistic up, by the way.

2. Be Colorado dreamin’ in campers paradise. — Pass the marshmallows, and look at those stars overhead. Wow. So, this is Colorado with its wide open sky, all-natural high, sugar-sweet rushin’ stream lullaby. Nothing pairs more perfectly with the greatest of great outdoors than Mountain Gold Roobios tea.

3. Hammocks are giant full-body pillows. — Imagine the perfect barefoot-required swing set, looped and tied between two palm trees. The ocean’s gentle call lulls you into a deep snooze. It’s like you’re floating on clouds. When you finally stir awake from your perfect nap, you’re going to need the perfect mango-flavored tea to sip to not only bring you back to full consciousness but to respect the oasis of your vacation OM.

4. Not required: foraging for your own berries. — Campfire breakfasts are too time-consuming done the primal way.After you awake from your starry-lit slumber and the dew is tickling your feet, reach for the only and only fast-brewed energy-boosting Pekoe Breakfast black tea to help you usher in, wide-eyed and bushy-tailed, the first day you take your toddler son fly fishing. The fish won’t wait, after all. Better skedaddle.

5. Cabins accessories can be scary. — Web-weaving spiders the size of your palm got nothing on a remote cabin’s kitchenette accessories. Make sure you pack your favorite Pekoe tea, loose leaf bags and tea accessories to brew the best tea you’ll ever have surrounded by crawly wildlife.

6. Mandatory trips to see the mother-in-law need extra zen. — Stay calm and collected thanks to our calming Evening Solace tea — made with nerve-soothing chamomile — that helps you face the annual trip to your mother-in-laws with grace and, well, less dread. Make sure you also pack your mug that says “I <Heart> My MIL.”
