Ah, fall! While we enjoy summer and are certainly big fans of tea shirts, we love that first crisp autumn day when you can break out your favorite sweater and anticipate the landscape changing from green to warm fall colors. There’s a fresh crispness in the air that we know will change to cold weather sooner than we might want, which is what makes fall so special. It’s limited edition: always leaves us wanting more. (You see what we did there, right?)
Fortunately for you, some of our best teas to drink in the fall aren’t limited edition, so you can enjoy them year-round if you wish—but autumn is an especially great time to savor these flavors. Which ones will you fall for?
Let’s face it, pumpkin owns fall. From pumpkin spice cereal to pumpkin spice Pringles (yes, they really made them), the pumpkin spice craze has taken over the country. We think, and our customers agree, our Pumpkin Spice Tea is a perfect pairing of a beautiful red Rooibos with pumpkin, cinnamon, and cloves. Go ahead, get your pumpkin spice on.
Fall’s other favorite round edible object, the apple, takes center stage in our Hot Apple Spice tea. This blend of black tea is bursting with apple pieces and flavor, cinnamon, orange peel and ground cloves. So fresh, you’ll swear we just picked it from the apple spice tree.
This tea is so delicious, we cranberry believe it! Black tea infused with cranberries and orange for a full-bodied, warm-your-body-all-over experience.
Can’t choose between Pumpkin Spice, Hot Apple Spice or Cranberry Autumn? Great news: you don’t have to! Our Fall Harvest Trio combines all three in one easy order. It’s 150 sachets of full-on fall flavor.
It’s cinnamon, spice, and everything nice—that’s what our Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea is made of! Our most popular tea is perfect for this time of year. Warm and comforting, like a hug from your grandma without the comments about your hair.
Another awesome Rooibos offering, African Autumn is an herbal blend with cranberry and citrus. It has a fruity and slightly woodsy aroma that makes it a perfect fall tea. It’s like spending time around a bonfire but your clothes don’t smell like smoke the next day.
Oh my, rooibos chai! With its clove, cardamom, and cinnamon spices, it will warm you up heart and soul. Imagine drinking a cookie from a cup—yep, there it is. Rooibos is naturally decaffeinated, so you can sip it by the fire to wind down your autumn day.
Another tea perfect for slow sipping by a bonfire, Black Cask Bourbon combines the vanilla, caramel and smoky notes of a fine bourbon. Black tea, lapsang souchong and bourbon flavor for that faaahhhl feeling.
Yea, it’s cider season! Truly one of fall’s best ambassadors, there’s nothing like the taste of cider to let you know what time of year it is. Our Mulled Plum Cider tea is full of flavor: plum, apple, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and more. So packed with fall goodness, you’ll be inspired to offer to rake your neighbor’s leaves… but you’ll just have another cup of tea instead.

There are few things that say “New England” like maple. If you think maple syrup should go on most everything, like some people feel about ketchup or bacon, then you’ll love our New England Breakfast tea. Black tea and warm maple flavor to get your day started right or to enjoy during the day for that breakfast-anytime feeling.
