Fall is the perfect time for a cup of tea. The weather gets cooler, and it feels so warm and cozy to wrap yourself in a blanket or sweater, and enjoy a hot cup of tea. Here are some tea recipes that are perfect for the fall season.
Fall Fruity Spice Tea
This first tea recipe is really great for the fall season, combining a lot of the best flavors and spices for the season. It is going to be a fruity concoction that has some sweetness, and also those fall spices you have grown to love. If you want something with a hint of pumpkin, but you don’t like coffee, this is a great alternative. For the tea, you want to start with any flavor tea you like, though white and black teas are ideal for this variety. You can then combine the brewed tea with your flavors, like cranberry juice, apple juice, and maybe a bit of lemon or orange juice. Add to that your fall spices like cinnamon, clove, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix it all together into a delicious fall tea.
Simple Pumpkin Spice Tea
For a cup of tea that tastes even more like a pumpkin spice latte, you want to leave out all those delicious fruity flavors, and go for the more spiced flavors instead. This is great by starting with a spiced tea like rooiobos, then adding in your pumpkin pie spice, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. You can also add in some vanilla extract and maple syrup if you want to add in more sweetness to it. When you’re done blending your tea, you can choose to add something to make it creamy, like heavy whipping cream, along with a cinnamon stick at the very end.
Spiced Chai Tea
One of the most popular tea flavors for the fall season is chai tea. It naturally has all those spices you have grown to love during this time of year, but it really is easier than you might think to make. The simplest way to make it is to get chai tea bags, then add in some of your own flavors. Brew your chai tea, then add in a little extra spice, such as cinnamon and some nutmeg on top. If you like a sweeter chai tea, a bit of maple syrup or a little sugar can also be added into your spiced chai tea.
With these teas, you are getting the fall spices you crave, but also the health benefits associated with the many fall spices and the tea leaves themselves.
