Learn how to make Glühwein for your next Christmas gathering
Nothing says Christmas like sipping on a hot mug of traditional Gluhwein. With its warm gentle spice and delicate sweetness, holding on to a cup of this mulled wine while it keeps your hands warm at a Christmas market, an office party or family gathering will have you glowing from the inside out.
While I lived in Germany, one of my favourite Christmas traditions was to wander the Stuttgart Christmas Market while sipping on Gluhwein. Keeping my hands warm and my spirit aglow, I could spend hours walking from stall to stall taking in all the traditional Christmas glory. In the early days of New Moon Tea co, I knew I wanted to put my own twist on this classic, because if you can't make it to a Christmas market, we can bring that same feeling to you instead.
