5 Best Fall Teas That Aren’t Pumpkin SpiceI'm excited to share my top picks for Fall teas that are not Pumpkin Spice. Don't get me wrong - I appreciate a good pumpkin spice now and then, but sometimes I crave something different to embrace the cozy vibes of autumn. The leaves are changing colors, temperatures are cooling down, and with that my tea selection tends to adapt… So, let's dive into my list of 5 teas that I adore for this season.
Fall just wouldn't be the same without the comforting embrace of a cup of Creme De La Earl Black Tea. We introduced this tea in 2005 and it’s been a favorite ever since! This classic black tea infused with Madagascar vanilla is pure magic. It's like sipping a warm hug on a crisp autumn morning. The creamy notes blend seamlessly with the crisp black tea and traditional Bergamot, making it an ideal choice for those cozy Fall mornings or afternoons.
I especially love using it to create a delightful London Fog, the perfect companion for a good book or a rainy day.
Creme de La Earl is available to enjoy as either loose leaf or in environmentally friendly, plastic-free, biodegradable tea bags.
When it comes to fall flavors, the Tiger Chai Concentrate reigns supreme. This authentic Indian spiced chai is a must-have in my tea collection.
It's loaded with warm spices that embody the essence of autumn. The aroma and flavor of this chai is unmatched - it’s literally my mother’s chai recipe! Pure Indian black tea is expertly crafted with fresh spices, and then slowly brewed for hours to bring out authentic flavors. You’ll know what I mean when you take that first sip and taste the difference.
I really appreciate the convenience - mix it with a 1:1 ratio with the milk of your choice. It blends well with all milks and milk-alternatives such as oat milk or soy milk.
The best part? Every purchase supports the Nagarahole Tiger Reserve in India, which warms my heart. Many of the spices used in this chai come from Southern India. After my visit to the spice farms earlier this year, I committed to giving back so we can preserve the natural habitat of the beautiful tiger.
This ready-to-use chai is incredibly versatile and can be used to craft various fall drinks, from spicy lattes to chai-infused desserts.
For those moments when I want to savor the flavors of fall without the caffeine, Rooibos Apple Crisp comes to the rescue. It's like having a slice of warm apple pie in a cup. The blend of apple, cinnamon, almonds, and cloves create a symphony of autumn flavors that fill the room and my senses with joy. Plus, it's fantastic as an iced tea when the weather is still a bit warm but the leaves are starting to turn.
I also love this tea because I can brew a large batch and keep it in the fridge for my kids. I use it as a juice alternative for them - they enjoy the sweet Fall flavors and get the benefits of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals found naturally in Rooibos.
Who says you can't have dessert in a teacup? Rooibos Tiramisu is my go-to when I'm in the mood for a sweet treat without the guilt. This naturally caffeine-free herbal tea combines almonds, dark chocolate chips, and cocoa bits for a decadent experience. A perfect way to end a fall evening on a sweet note.
And as an extra bonus, this dessert tea is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins!
As the days get shorter and the nights cooler, Chamomile Dreams is my soothing escape. I’ve spent many hours drinking this tea while working or studying in the evenings. This caffeine-free blend of chamomile, lemongrass, hibiscus, and rose petals is the epitome of relaxation. It's my number one choice for unwinding in the evening with a good book or to cozy up before bedtime. The gentle floral notes and calming chamomile make it a true dreamy sip for fall nights.
Chamomile Dreams is available as either loose leaf or in environmentally friendly, plastic-free, biodegradable tea bags.
So, there you have it—my five beloved teas that bring the essence of Fall to life without a hint of pumpkin spice. These teas are my cozy companions during this wonderful time of the year, and I hope they become your favorites too. Cheers to embracing autumn in all its tea-sipping coziness!
