Fall is here and the crisp nights are slowly creeping in.
There is no better way to enjoy the changing of the leaves and cool breeze than to cozy up with a nice hot cup of tea. There are many varieties of tea to enjoy, but with fall in mind Grandma has a few flavors that truly bring the spirit of the season to your home.
Many of us think of Pumpkin Spiced Latte’s when Fall rolls around, but Grandma remembers a holiday classic. Spiced tea fills the house with a holiday aroma. Chai tea is a type of spiced tea, but it shouldn’t be confused with a Chai Tea Latte which has espresso. We have a great recipe from the Food Network, below.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add 4 cups water, the cloves and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil, and then remove from the heat. Add the orange peels, orange juice, and tea bags, and cover. Allow steeping for 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in the honey. Pour into mugs and serve.
Fall invites warm and cozy feelings, and the perfect tea is a great start to finding enjoyment right at home! Grandma likes to spend her fall crocheting sweaters and hats for her grandkids for winter while sipping on her favorite tea. She uses her Grandma’s Knitters and Crocheter’s Hand Soother Lotion she can stay moisturized without the greasy feeling most lotions leave. No one likes greasy fingers while trying to knit or enjoying hot tea!
