Fall is in the horizon, which means apple season is just about here! Even though you can get delicious and ripe apples all year long, fall marks the season of apples, so it’s only fitting to spotlight Art of Tea’s growing selection of apple teas! The perfect balance of sweet and tart apple flavors were fused together to create signature blends: Apple Pie, AppleTEA’ni, and a newly launched fall inspired tea called Turkish Apple.
Apple pie is an all time American favorite served at holiday parties with the family or the Fourth of July BBQ. We wanted to create a tea to replicate the warm and comforting flavors of this classic and well-loved American dessert. This caffeine free tisane is a rooibos medley of honeybush, cinnamon, apple bits, coconut, ginger, pink peppercorn, black peppercorn and nutmeg. Art of Tea’s Apple Pie is a guilt free dessert tea that you can enjoy all day long. It smells like a homemade apple pie fresh out of the oven. Enjoy Apple Pie tea hot, cold or even make your own libation like an apple cider featured in a past blog article.
Along with Apple Pie, Art of Tea’s AppleTEA’ni made its debut last year. This is a tea version of an apple martini (appletini for short), a popular cocktail containing vodka and apple flavoring from juice, liqueur, etc. On the sweeter side, AppleTEA’ni is caffeinated with Yun Wu green tea, balanced with sweetness from green rooibos, apple bits, cinnamon and pinched with spice from ginger. This is the perfect mocktail (alcohol free beverage) because it’s also great over ice.
After a slew of requests, we were inspired to create our newest apple tea called Turkish Apple, which is based on Turkish tea, a popular tea among Persians and Turkish speaking cultures. Traditionally, Turkish tea is a strong brew of black tea served in small glasses. Accordingly, we matched the flavors with potent black teas coupled with cinnamon. This robust blend provides bold flavors that will uplift and comfort you throughout the day.
