Favorites: Fall Teas


My favorite season of the year is finally here! I love the fall for many reasons. The weather, the cardigans, my birthday, and the knowledge that we are much closer to the holiday season. To celebrate this new season, why not highlight some of my favorite fall teas?

Shou Puerh

First up is shou puerh! While I drink this tea year round, I always crave it when the weather is dark and gloomy. There is nothing like being wrapped up in a sweater sipping some strong shou, which is exactly how the fall season sounds to me. In my opinion, the earthy tones that are accompanied by shou is perfect for this season.

Some of my favorite shou puerhs are:

Hojicha

Hojicha

Second up is an incredibly new tea to me, hojicha! Hojicha is a Japanese green toasted tea. Its production process takes the roughness and bitterness away from the tea. It is awesome to drink at nights, and I have been craving it everyday this season.

Dong Ding Oolong

Frozen Summit

Dong Ding oolong might be an interesting choice for some people but I am such a sucker for oolongs that I will drink it any time of the year. There is something about it that screams ‘fall’ to me. I really enjoy the smoothness of this tea- it makes me feel warm and cozy.

I am drinking:

Purple Tea

Purple tea tastes similar to green tea, with an added earthiness and strong body that makes it perfect for this season. The versality of this tea makes it work great for those last warm days of the year, as well as for colder afternoons.

Aged White Tea

Finally, aged white tea! I love to drink this type of tea whenever the weather is gloomy, as I find the muskiness of aged teas and the earthiness of it makes it a great fall tea. I also really enjoy the body sensation and energy that drinking this tea gives me.
