As you take time to meet your friends and family over the holidays, here is a list of winter teas and other gifts in beautiful hampers to add yuletide cheer to the festive season.

Do you enjoy decorating Gingerbread houses during the Christmas season? The warm aroma infused with cinnamon, ginger and honey always makes the season extra special! Ginger tea has the same powers too, except that it’s deliciousness that can only be contained by a teacup. Amp up the festive cheer by gifting Ginger Chai and plenty other Ginger flavours from Octavius Teas.
Cardamom is a quintessential Christmas ingredient in Germany where Christmas cookies are baked with it since the Middle Ages. In India of course, Cardamom is more for desserts and other savoury cooking. Cardamom tea, however, is a desi drink that has all the Christmas feels. If you know friends who love this spice, then go ahead and get them, Cardamom Chai. Octavius has a variety of cardamom teas from instant premixes to tea blends containing spices such as Ginger, etc besides the Cardamom to choose from.
