Christmas time – gingerbread time! Gathering in the kitchen during the pre-Christmas season and baking Christmas biscuits with many helping hands and flour-dusted, joyful faces is a tradition for many families.
Stirring, kneading, shaping, baking and decorating them… and very important: tasting them from time to time!
Gingerbread is especially well-suited for this activity: It offers many possibilities for decorating, has a great taste and we should also mention that it contains the typical Christmas spices!
Speaking of spices: Did you know that almost all of our five original YOGI TEA® ingredients are also found in gingerbread? The following spices are typically mixed together when preparing the gingerbread spice: cinnamon, star anise, ginger, mace, fennel, cardamom, coriander, anise, cloves, pimento and nutmeg.
And do you know which of these are found in our YOGI TEA® CLASSIC? We’ll tell you: soft, sweet cinnamon; sprightly inspiring ginger; sweet cardamom that is full of essential oils; cloves; and an additional ingredient that you won’t find in gingerbread: pepper as an intensive, spicy and hot addition.
In cooperation with IlkaEliseB, we have added a special touch to the classic gingerbread recipe for this year with YOGI TEA® GINGER ORANGE with Vanilla and grated orange peel. This gives the Orange-Vanilla Gingerbread that extra something! And best of all, our recipe is also vegan.
Why did we choose YOGI TEA® GINGER ORANGE with Vanilla?
On the one hand, the ingredients in YOGI TEA® GINGER ORANGE with Vanilla are the perfect companion for a delicious attunement to the Christmas season. On the other hand, the subtle message of this tea especially applies to this time of the year: “Relaxation and confidence.” The time before Christmas can get hectic with many parties and get-togethers. We still want to finish one thing or the other before the “old year” ends, we start looking for gifts – and then the new year is almost knocking at the door. With YOGI TEA® GINGER ORANGE with Vanilla, you can handle this hustle and bustle in a relaxed mood, create refreshing breaks for yourself and confidently look forward to the coming events and a new year!
