Autumnal Tea – Tea for Autumn

It’s officially snuggle season. Even if you don’t have a significant other you can snuggle with your blanket, whilst sipping tea by the fireplace. Your home, if it isn’t already, should be filled with the scent of cinnamon and apple cider. If you live alone and think you can’t be bothered, think again. There is nothing nicer than coming home to a home that feels like home.

Here at the Wholesale Coffee Co. we think snuggle season is perfect, because people tend to sip more tea. Our tea, preferably. As the days are shorter and the darkness longer pick-me-ups in the form of coffee also come in handy. And when you smell our freshly roasted coffee beans you won’t stay sleepy for long. It’s almost impossible. In fact we heard one study proved people started typing faster just by smelling coffee.

We are of the opinion that it’s best to make the most of each season and deck the halls with all things warm and cozy. Otherwise it would just be dark, cold, and sad. Add some colourful leaves, spicy teas, and red knitted scarves and the story starts to look slightly differently.

Below you will find an autumnal tea recipe, but just in case you notice your employees or co-workers fall asleep, get some of our green coffee beans and roast them yourself. The aroma should most certainly awoken the rest of the office.

Apple Cranberry Tea

This tea is served warm and is perfect for an autumn day. It has autumn-inspired ingredients such as apple juice, cranberry, and pumpkin pie spice. This is sure to put you in the autumn spirit.



Add tea bags to the boiling water and allow to steep for 7-10 minutes (depending on 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 – if you want it hot you have to heat the juice as well.
