So it’s that time of year again; the leaves are falling off the trees, you’re unpacking your winter coat and looking for your gloves. And to add to my list I have the addition of some teas that I like to drink especially in the autumn months. There is just something really snug about getting home in the evening when it is just starting to get dark sooner and putting the kettle on before you have even taken off your scarf. I tend to push my green teas to the back of the cupboard (still within reach obviously) and bring forward my autumn teas.
I asked around the office and everyone seemed to share my opinion that some teas just really suit the colder months. Here are our three favourite ones:
Lavender, Chocolate, and Cinnamon Rooibos – This is actually a new tea that we are about to launch on our new website. It is sweet and a bit Christmassy with the cinnamon and chocolate flavours being quite pronounced. As it is caffeine free it is a great tea to drink wrapped up in a blanket reading a book in the evening or even in bed with a hot water bottle. This blend will be available to buy very soon – just in time if you ask me because brrr it is getting cold outside!
Puerh with Lavender – I recently wrote a review of this tea that you can see here. Puerh has quite a distinct flavour and with the addition of Lavender (reminiscent of summer!) it will ease you in to the cooler nights and shorter days.
Lapsang Souchong – This is my all time favourite autumn tea – the smokiness is evocative of Bonfire night which is why I think this tea screams autumn to me. The black tea is smoked for 4 days above burning pine to create its natural smoked taste. This tea is so nice in fact that it won a 3 Star Great Taste Award this year.
Do you have a favourite autumnal tea or do you stick with your classics all year round? Please comment and discuss tea with me.
