Los Angeles-based company Art of Tea added two new teas to its holiday tea lineup: Pecan Pie and Sugarplum Marzipan.

Pecan Pie is a caffeine-free mix of organic honeybush, organic cinnamon, apple, organic coconut, organic stevia leaf, natural and artificial flavors. The tea’s flavor is akin to that of southern pecan pie, according to Art of Tea’s website.

Sugarplum Marzipan has a foundation of organic black and pu-erh teas with rosehips, marigolds and hints of almond and plum. The Nutcracker Ballet’s sugar plum fairy provided the inspiration for this blend.
