Festive Christmas Movie & Tea Pairings
November 14, 2022
‘Tis the season to cozy up on the sofa with a warm blanket, a cup of holiday tea and your favorite feel–good Christmas film. To help make your holiday season even merrier, we are sharing our top Christmas movie and tea pairing recommendations.
1. Rudolph the Red–Nosed Reindeer
This 1964 stop–motion classic is the longest continuously running Christmas TV special. For generations, families have gathered around the television to watch Rudolph and Hermey the elf on their adventures around the North Pole. Our Red Hot Holiday Tea is the perfect accompaniment to this Christmas favorite. Featuring a blend of fruity hibiscus and fiery cinnamon, it is sure to light up your teacup as you cheer on Rudolph and his friends.
2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Everyone loves a movie with a good character arc, and the Grinch has one of the best redemption stories of all time. By the end of the film, this green grouch has given up his mischievous ways and fully embodied the Christmas spirit. With its delicious blend of green rooibos, peppermint and cocoa, Peppermint Bark Tea gives a festive nod to the Grinch.
3. A Christmas Story
You can never go wrong with the classics — especially when you pair them together. A Christmas Story has been delivering comfort and joy to living rooms around the world for decades, which is why we recommend sipping a cup of our best–selling Comfort and Joy Black Tea while you watch. This festive, energizing blend of black tea and spices is a delight to sip on Christmas morning.
Few people are as merry as Buddy the Elf, but a hot cup of Sip and Be Merry Tea is sure to fill you with the spirit of Christmas. Add a splash of milk to this robust blend of silky caramel, creamy vanilla, aromatic cardamom and premium black tea to create a cup of festive crème brûlée. Buddy is sure to approve.
5. It’s a Wonderful Life
Life is filled with ups and downs, good times and bad — a truth that is captured eloquently in this heartfelt Christmas film. Just as he is thinking of giving up on life, George Bailey meets a guardian angel who shows him how his good deeds have positively impacted his family, friends and neighbors. Lift your spirits with a cup of Tea of Good Tidings as you watch this Christmas.
6. Home Alone
After Kevin realizes that he has been left home alone for the holidays, one of the first things he does is prepare an oversized ice cream sundae. As a nod to Kevin and his sweet tooth, we recommend watching Home Alone with a cup of Gingerbread Cuppa Cake® Tea. Enjoy the deep, rich flavors of traditional, spicy gingerbread with cinnamon and vanilla — with none of the calories or sugar.
7. A Charlie Brown Christmas
The Peanuts gang has been delighting families with their holiday antics for nearly 60 years. At the start of this classic film, Charlie Brown feels depressed in spite of the Christmas festivities around him. Over the course of the movie, he and his friends discover the true meaning of Christmas. This year, enjoy this heartwarming film with an equally warming cup of Cinnamon Vanilla Dream by the Fire Tea.
8. Hallmark Channel’s Countdown to Christmas
Every year, Hallmark Channel kicks off the holiday season with its much–anticipated Countdown to Christmas special. Enjoy all of your favorite Hallmark Christmas movies with a cup of Gingerbread Cookie Tea or Cardamom Cinnamon Tea, both part of our Hallmark Channel Countdown to Christmas collection.
