Does your mom love tea and a good book? If that sounds like her, why struggle to decide between the two when you could give her both of her favorite things in a convenient, adorable gift box! The teas in this box have been inspired by the book's settings and themes to evoke family, love, and the magic of Christmas. Be sure to add on the heartwarming world of Debbie Macomber's Jingle All the Way - it immerses you in an exciting holiday tea journey. These teas will keep your mom cozy at home, even as she reads about Everly and Asher's adventurous cruise through the Amazon.
