Must-Try Autumn Loose Leaf Teas

August 23, 2019

teas for autumn

Once again the seasons are about to change. As with the transformation of the weather, my tea preferences shift as well. This is because every tea invokes a different seasonal feel for me. In the spring I find myself attracted to the fruit-forward herbal teas. During summer I enjoy lemongrass and peppermint for a refreshing break. But Autumn….my favorite time of year...is just around the corner, and with it comes my favorite flavors of tea. 

I think fall is the perfect time of year to try new tea flavors or experiment by blending some of your personal faves. The weather starts turning cooler. The leaves begin their transformation into the beautiful amber hues. And with the first bit of crispness in the air, you know autumn has arrived. Time to steep a cup and sit outside to soak it all in.

Some teas just sound like fall don't you think? Apples, cinnamon, spices, warm nutty flavors...let me share with you some teas that will help you welcome in the change of seasons. 

Pumpkin Spice Chai

Nothing says fall better than pumpkin. If you love pumpkin spice, this herbal honeybush tea with Masala chai spices and a hint of pumpkin is one you should add to your cabinet. The crisp and tangy-sweet flavor created from the spices balances with the mellow, smooth flavor of the honeybush tea.

Maharaja Oolong Chai

A cinnamon lover's dream come true! Very similar to Teavana's Maharaja Chai blend of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, chicory, and cocoa nibs with a smooth oolong. Plus the addition of a bit of Masala spice creates a savory and spicy cup. A little splash of milk accents the spicy-sweet richness! Absolutely delicious when blended with Samurai Spirit Maté...

Spiced Apple Chai

A warm cup of apple cider! The delicious blend of cinnamon bark, ginger root, cardamom, orange peels, cloves, apple pieces, and natural apple create a lively black tea blend.

White Ayurvedic Chai

I know I have mentioned this before but if you are missing your Teavana favorite, you have found it with our White Ayurvedic Chai. This energizing spiced twist on chai has delicate flavors of white tea blended with chai and zesty notes of ginger, lemongrass, coconut, and pineapple. The result? Fruit and spice flavors with an essence of cinnamon.

This is the perfect tea to blend with Samurai Spirit. (An amazing maté blend and such a hot seller!) The maté is an elegant blend of ginger root, cardamom, orange peels, lemongrass, aniseed, almond, papaya, spicy cinnamon flavors, mango, and pineapple pieces culminating into a graceful mosaic of flavors.

Dancing Vanilla Bean

Vanilla. Another quintessential fall flavor, right? This South African red rooibos base blends Masala chai spices with a hint of vanilla. The spices and creamy vanilla blend to perfection. Rooibos is a naturally caffeine-free tea, so you can enjoy it any time of the day or night. We prefer two heaping teaspoons per 6 oz cup. Sugar, cream, or soy if you want to sweeten your cup.

Masala Spiced Chai

You’ve probably recognized a common thread through these teas I have mentioned - the masala spices. Our Masala Spiced Chai tea is a premium Ceylon black tea. The cloves, the cinnamon, the cardamon, and the ginger make it a perfect flavor for fall.

Misty Morning Rose

It must be something about all those beautiful apples that ripen in fall. The bright tangy apples and rose hips in our Misty Morning Rose blended with a gentle smoky Gunpowder tea take you to a misty morning with the scent of autumn in the air. The touch of cinnamon and creme brulee flavors warm you like your favorite fleece. 

Brazilian Beauty

And didn’t I mention nutty flavors also invoke fall? Well last but not least I'll mention here is a beautiful toasted Brazilian mate blend with cinnamon bark, natural spice flavor, orange peels and ginger root for an energizing brew. Perfect for cooler days fireside or iced with milk and sugar for when you crave something sweet.

Reading this article has put you on the right path to finding the best loose leaf tea! I hope you try some of our amazing autumn teas!

Good tea but....
Hi Brenda - If you like more of the chocolate notes, have you tried blending the Samurai Spirit with our Maharaja Oolong Chai? It is a delicious blend that will give you a little more spice and chocolate with cocoa nibs and cinnamon...a personal fave! :)
One of my favorites!!!
