Ahh. Fall is here, we’ve been wearing nothing but chunky sweaters, and we love nothing more than cozying up with a nice big mug of hot tea. Not only does a cup of hot tea warm our hands and our hearts, but consuming hot tea is also good for reducing blood pressure, strengthening your immune system, and curbing stress and anxiety.
When it comes to choosing a flavor, sure, pumpkin spice is the flavor of the season, but fall and winter teas are full of various warm spices, mulled apples, cinnamon, chocolate, caramel, and more. Since there are so many teas to choose from, we thought we’d make up a list of our favorite blends to curl up with.
Baked Apple Cinnamon Tazo Herbal Tea
Fall season is apple season and we adore this baked apple cinnamon herbal tea with notes of red apple, cinnamon, and caramel. Just as a recommendation, this tea pairs nicely with freshly-baked muffins, a warm blanket, and a great book. (buy it here)
Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea
If we had to describe what this tea tasted like, we would simply say: like fall. We aren’t sure how they did it, but Harney & Sons perfectly captured the taste of fall in this tea with this blend of black teas, three types of cinnamon, orange peel, and sweet cloves. (buy it here)
Twinings Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea
Chai there! Sorry, we had to. But this is a fun twist on classic chai tea with the flavor of the season. This pumpkin spice chai is a warm and cozy blend of classic, fine black tea infused with flavors of pumpkin and savory spices of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice to create the ultimate fall tea.

The Republic of Tea Caramel Apple Red Tea
It’s just not fall without caramel apples, but if a sticky mess isn’t really your idea of a good time, then we recommend caramel apple red tea, which is a delicious blend of, you guessed it, red tea, apple cinnamon, and caramel. (buy it here)
Bigelow Cranberry Harvest Herbal Tea
So pumpkin, caramel, and apple aren’t really your thing? We respect that. May we suggest a delicious blend of cranberry, orange, and warm spices for your chilly evening front porch sit? We love to add fresh orange slices and cinnamon sticks to kick our cup of tea up a notch. (buy it here)
