Depending on which city you live in, spring is either keeping you frozen or starting to warm you up. If you’re beginning to feel more of spring’s heat, then pollen is probably beginning to come in. If you have to stay bundled up, at least sunshine is making its way through the gloomy winter clouds. No matter what season you are currently feeling, you can always rely on a cup of tea or coffee to lift up your spirits. We put together four drink creations that you can create at home that may help soothe congestion, give you a boost, or help you wind down on the weekend!
Sunshine and Rainbow Tea
This tea concoction tastes like magic in a cup! With an herbal aroma and sweet taste, it’s the perfect pick me up for any time of day. Also, since the tea blend has turmeric and ginger root, it should help aid digestion and fight inflammation. Place your drink creation in a fun mug like this adorable unicorn one. The gold unicorn horn makes for a nice finger rest too. You’ll feel calm and special every time you take a sip out of this cup on a cold gray day!
1 Tazo Turmeric & Passion Fruit Teabag
1 Tazo Sweet Wild Orange Teabag
1 tblsp honey
Let tea steep for 2 minutes, add honey, and enjoy.
Looking for a simple coffee recipe that will give you a boost but also help you unwind on the weekend? Well, this drink is definitely for you. With a strong cup of coffee and a kick from the shot of bourbon, couple your coffee creation with a “Coffee than Cocktails” mug or a “Be Nice or Go Away” mug. Both cups have black and gold script with a sassy saying. Turn on your favorite genre of music and enjoy your afternoon.
1 shot of bourbon
1 strong cup of hot coffee
Pour them together, stir, relax, and enjoy.
This Butterbeer tea is more of a comforting sweet, warm drink. Since this recipe is combined with a Vanilla Bean Macaron tea and a Vanilla Caramel tea, mixing in milk and cream will not only add to the drink’s flavor but also give it a perfect golden hue. For some added texture, throw in a handful of butterscotch pieces and top it off with whipped cream and a sprinkle of brown sugar. Stir up your coffee creation in this “Mom Life is the Best Life” mug. For all the moms out there, this cup is a wonderful reminder that while “mom-life” can be difficult at times, it’s extremely rewarding and worth it!

It features the quote “Life is Beautiful” and has a beautiful gold foil handle.
