Can you feel it?
The cool mornings, the crispness of the air, the excitement of back to school?
Fall is right around the corner.
I love fall. I love the restart that seems to come with back to school.
I love the harvest. The apples, the pumpkins, the bounty of fresh vegetables.
This is definitely my favorite time of year.
It is the time that I was introduced to Minnesota and discovered the wonderful world I live in now.
One of the things that is so interesting to me about the changing of seasons is how much my tastes change. Does that happen to you? I would think it would be temperature dependent, but it isn’t. It is seasonal. And this time of season I am craving the richness of vanilla. The spice of cinnamon, ginger, and cardamon and the sweetness of apple, and orange.
The light green teas get pushed aside for the stronger black teas, and I crave the full flavors of rooibos to keep me warm at night.
Those are the flavors I am working with right now as I create the fall and winter blends. Some favorites from last year like Harvest Blend and Hearthside Warmer will be coming back by special request. And I have some new ones for you to look forward to.
Watch for ways you can be part of the creative process with a naming contest coming up soon!
As I finalize the line up I would love to know what flavors you look for as the days get cooler and the colors get more vibrant. Comment below or on Facebook, or send me a note to let me know what teas you can’t live without this season!
I look forward to sharing tea with you soon!
