Autumn in a cup

Autumn in a cup

 

Autumn evidently calls for a warm cup of loose leaf tea

 

Autumn is full of so many wonderful colours and tastes and we have teas to match your every mood.

Spices, harvest, colder temperatures and subtle colours are all a part of the transition into autumn. Help yourself prepare for the autumn and winter months by drinking our warming teas.  Why not start your day with one of our seasonal teas, a flavoured black tea with orange, cinnamon and lulo fruit taste: Ronnefeldt Winter Fairy Tale. And wind down at the end of the day with a caffeine free, fruity and spicy blend tea, such as Ronnefeldt Festive Delight, flavoured with plum, elderberry, apple and pineapple.

Our range of delicious seasonal teas is a perfect choice to take your first sip of autumn. Warming and rich flavours of apple, cinnamon and vanilla will accompany those cosy winter nights. Find comfort with our sumptuous selection, with flavours such as baked apple and mulled wine. Join us in making the transition into the colder months a little easier with many delightful teas to enjoy.

Here at Cup of Tea we have put together our favourite range of autumn and seasonal  teas we think will brighten those lightly frosted mornings and early October evenings.
