Celebrate the Autumn Harvest Season With Apple Teas
October 7, 2021
The apple harvest season is upon us. During September and October, dozens of varieties of apples — including favorites like Gala, Honeycrisp, Red Delicious and Golden Delicious — reach their peak and become ready for harvesting. Whether you pick your own or buy them from your local store or farmers market, apples are at their best during the autumn months.
Apples have been associated with fall for centuries, and October has even been declared National Apple Month. Apples are celebrated throughout the season with time-honored traditions such as apple picking, sipping hot apple cider and baking homemade apple pies, tarts and other desserts.
One of the best ways to get into the autumn spirit is by steeping a festive and delicious cup of apple tea. Each of our apple teas features the sweet, crisp flavor of freshly harvested apples plus an assortment of complementary flavors such as caramel or fragrant spices. Below, discover three delightful apple teas that are perfect for autumn sipping.
When it comes to autumn harvest treats, there is no sweeter duo than a juicy apple and luscious, buttery caramel sauce. A base of caffeine-free rooibos merges with both these iconic fall flavors to create our sweet and satisfying Caramel Apple Red Tea.
This tea is delicious all on its own, but a splash of warm milk will transform your beverage into an indulgent caramel apple tea latte. The taste is reminiscent of homemade apple pie.
Drinking hot apple cider made with mulling spices (typically a blend of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and allspice) is a time-honored autumn tradition that dates back hundreds of years. During the medieval era in Northern Europe, it was common to drink mulled cider during harvest celebrations.
Our Hot Apple Cider Tea pays homage to this tradition by blending real apple bits with orange peel and fragrant mulling spices: cinnamon, ginger, cloves and cardamom. Sweet, zesty and caffeine-free, this golden-hued infusion is the perfect way to celebrate the fall season.
A freshly baked apple pie has long been a symbol of abundance and a staple of holidays throughout the year. Our newest apple tea, Apple Pie Chai, blends the essence of baked apples with inviting spices — cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and cloves — for an herbal chai that is worthy of celebration.
This spicy-sweet, caffeine-free tea is the perfect accompaniment to the harvest season. Add a splash of warm milk for an apple pie-inspired tea latte.
