Tea is a beverage that can be enjoyed all year round.
Of course you can enjoy these teas anytime of year but there’s always something special about sitting down with a tea that complements the weather outside.
Autumn time is a great time to enjoy a warm cup of tea.
Afterall, it’s when the dark nights and cooler weather comes in, perfect for autumnal loose leaf teas by the fire.
In this post we will specifically look at what teas are best enjoyed around autumn time.
Why Autumn and Tea Go Well Together
Tea and autumn form a perfect partnership as they both evoke feelings of comfort and warmth during this season of change.
There’s no better feeling than wrapping up warm and popping the kettle on to enjoy a steamy hot brew.
Similar to winter, warm tea is best enjoyed when the weather outside is on the cooler side. You may enjoy loose leaf iced tea better when the weather is a bit warmer.
The Best Tea for Autumn Time
Autumn is a beautiful time to enjoy various teas that complement the season’s flavours and provide comfort as the weather cools.
