Autumn in a Teacup

We're starting to feel Autumnal at Cup of Tea HQ. And in Somerset, where we are based, everything is beginning to look more colourful. The sunsets are particularly magnificent this time of year, and as the sun sets sooner, our palates are changing too.  

It's time for autumnal teas, and we love bold flavours with hints of apple, vanilla, malt, and spices such as ginger and cinnamon. Autumnal teas are not only full of flavour but also colour. Our favourite cups boast rich reds, deep greens to golden browns, the feeling of autumn is definitely here. 

We have selected a handful of our favourite autumnal teas to get you into the spirit of the season. You'll find delicious apple green teas, Assam teas with cinnamon and cacao and many more. So, if you fancy autumn in a teacup, read on!


Vanilla Apple – Loose-Leaf Tea 

Our Vanilla Apple is as autumnal as a tea can get! The composition consists of green Sencha tea, apple, currants, vanilla and red cornflower blossoms. The flavoured green tea infusion tastes like a mouth-watering baked apple-vanilla pudding.

Our customers say, "Absolutely delicious, with a warm 'apple strudel' taste and a hint of vanilla. I'll definitely be ordering more."

Irish Malt – Loose-Leaf Tea

One of our all-time favourite teas, this delicious loose-leaf tea has been specially selected for its robust, spicy Assam flavours. Irish Malt tea is accented with hints of Irish whisky flavour and authentic cocoa pieces. The extravagant taste makes this a delightful tea malty and utterly tea-licious!

Our customers say, "So happy I found this tea again. A hearty black tea with notes of malt whiskey and chocolate."

Irish Tea Hot Toddy – A Warming Autumn Tipple

Whisky and tea are, on occasion, the perfect match. Both are warming, flavourful and work incredibly well together. The infamous hot toddy is a favourite among many, and there are numerous versions of it. We love it on a cool weekend after a long walk. The additional benefits of local honey and fresh lemon make this warming tea toddy our firm favourite.
