fall tea recipes

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.

Apple Cranberry Tea

This tea recipe from socialmoms.com has classic fall flavors such as apple and pumpkin pie spice. It is the perfect tea for a crisp fall morning.
  • 6 tea bags (preferably black tea)
  • 5 cups of apple juice
  • 2-3 cups of cranberry juice (to taste)
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • ¼ cup of lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice
  • 5 cups of boiling water
    Add tea bags to the boiling water and allow to steep for 7-10 minutes (depending on the strength you desire).  Remove tea bags from water and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir and serve. This tea will be warm, not hot since the cranberry and apple juice are added to the hot water.

    Spiced Tea

    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.

    • 4 cloves
    • 2 sticks cinnamon
    • Peels from half an orange (long strips of peel made from a vegetable peeler)
    • Juice from half an orange
    • 4 tea bags (black tea)
    • 1/4 cup honey

    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.

    Apple Tea

    The season is ruled by the pumpkin, but apples hold a dominant position in the fall lineup. This tea blends fragrant spices and tart apple to bring out a holiday drink that is sure to be popular with everyone. Honey adds a little kick of sweetness in this aromatic tea.
    • 4 sliced apples
    • 2 cinnamon sticks
    • 4 clove sticks
    • 6.5 oz. water
    Place ingredients into a pan and bring water to boil. Let the tea simmer for 15-20 minutes then strain into mugs. Use a spoon or other tool to gently push on the apple slices to bring out their full flavor, and enjoy!

    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!
