I'm so excited it's officially the Christmas season! In my mind, it doesn't start until the day after Thanksgiving (yes, I'm talking to you, neighbors who put your Christmas tree up the day after Halloween ;). What are you looking forward to most this holiday?

As someone who loves the idea of tea, I have drawers filled with lots of different kinds. But it all just sits there, looking pretty in their fancy tins, because the truth is, tea intimidates me. So I'm excited that my friend Sashee created Teadrops, a new all-in-one instant tea with a focus on using high-quality tea leaves. She says people no longer have to worry about "decoding the varieties of tea, investing in a tea strainer, familiarizing themselves with steep times, adding sugar or adding milk. If you can boil water, then you can enjoy an amazing cup of tea."
Teadrops has partnered with Quiet Like Horses to offer readers a complimentary package of eight cardamom spice black Teadrops in a lovely wooden box. To request yours, visit myteadrop.com, leave your name and address, and mention Quiet Like Horses. (Supplies are limited, so request yours now!) And follow myteadrop on Instagram and Facebook to get the latest news and updates.
Each star-shaped Teadrop is made from finely sourced tea from India, natural sugar, and aromatic spices. Just drop one into your mug, add hot water and stir!
Each drop dissolves instantly and comes perfectly sweetened.
Sashee recommends enjoying these Teadrops with a bit of cream (I used almond milk)—so delicious.
Making loose leaf tea seems like too much work for a busy morning and dinky tea bags don't seem worth the effort. Teadrops are the perfect answer for an effortless cup of good tea. Will you try them? Let us know what you think!

Sophie and I got dressed up just for fun. She wore a gold-flecked dress, and I wore polka dots.
These are the scallops we used to cover the wreath base. I could scallop all day long.
Here are our finished wreaths! (And that's my friend PJ on the far right who is half of the Going Lovely team. I felt like I knew a celebrity ;) Thanks for the fun day, Going Lovely!
