Simpson & Vail is excited to announce a new holiday tea – Figgy Pudding – to their popular holiday tea line.

In “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”, the popular English Christmas song, carolers sing “Oh, bring us some figgy pudding….” and Simpson & Vail is delivering with this delicious tea blend.  The green tea base of Figgy Pudding holiday tea blend perfectly carries a full flavor with a smooth, creamy taste. The delightful aroma and tantalizing taste are reminiscent of weekends in Grandma's cozy kitchen!

The inspiration for this blend came from Sarah at Fancy That, a tearoom in Walpole, MA.  She said “If you're ever looking for a new tea to develop, I would love someone in America to create a Christmas/Figgy Pudding Tea.  Every year I search but can't find anything in the states.”  Thanks to Sarah Simpson & Vail is now proudly offering this in their holiday line.
