The Tea Spot unveils its 2012 limited edition loose leaf tea selections and tea gift sets today. Three holiday tea options are available, individually and in tea gift sets, for black tea, green tea, and herbal tea drinkers.

The Tea Spot's limited-edition Harvest Spice, black spiced tea, soothes the body and excites the taste buds with the bold flavors of orange, cinnamon, and clove on a vibrant base of black tea. With a full body and dark liquor, Harvest Spice carries an aroma reminiscent of mulled spices and cinnamon candy, and pairs pleasantly with cold winter mornings and evenings by the fireplace. Harvest Spice loose black tea retails for $5 per 0.6 oz mini tin, or $11.95 for a full size 3.5 oz tea tin.

Red Hot Chai is a firecracker of a blend that kicks the cold away with the season's boldest flavors. Red rooibos, cinnamon, masala chai spices and a kiss of vanilla meet in this complex yet balanced herbal chai tea. It's strong, spicy, and pairs excellently with milk. Red Hot Chai represents an exciting variation from traditional chai flavors with no caffeine and the added antioxidants and minerals of a Rooibos base. Red Hot Chai loose Rooibos tea retails for $5 per 0.6 oz mini tin, or $11.95 for a full size 3.5 oz tea tin.

Praline Truffles is the perfect holiday dessert tea for the green tea lover. From a bright and fresh green tea base, this tea takes off into luxurious flavors of walnut, almond, coconut and rich toffee. Soothing, rich, and at once delicate, Praline Truffles is the perfect tea to savor in the silence of fresh snowfall or share with loved ones throughout the holiday season. Praline Truffles retails for $5 for an 0.6 oz mini tea tin.

Each of these holiday teas is available individually, or as a bundled tea gift set - in mini tea tins – the perfect size to give as gifts to tea lovers as stocking stuffers. The triple tea bundle is called “Holiday Brews”. It will be available for a limited time only, and retails at The Tea Spot's online tea shop at for $14. “Holiday Brews” makes a nicely balanced loose tea introduction set, as it includes black, green and caffeine-free herbal teas.

Building on the triple tea set is the “Holiday Tea Traveler”. This holiday tea gift includes the three “Holiday Brews” tins as well as The Tea Spot's award-winning Tuffy Tea Steeper, and a signature Tea Spot double-walled ceramic travel mug. This set, complete with tea mug, tea infuser, and loose leaf teas. The Tea Spot's “Tea Traveler” travel mugs paired with the Tuffy Tea Steeper are one of their most popular Steepware® offerings. The "Holiday Tea Traveler" is priced at $40.95.

Bo Olson, The Tea Spot's Sales Director commented on the holiday teas: “The way we see it, the things that make tea great are the very same things that make the holidays great: memories shared with friends and family, moments of precious relaxation, aromas that make you stop in your tracks, and of course, a whole host of delicious flavors. Producing holiday teas is always a real treat, because it allows us to paint holiday scenes with the favorite flavors of the seasons. Like our customers, we can't say no to spice and sweetness, so we were easily inspired to bring in new flavors of walnut, toffee, cinnamon, and vanilla.”
