There’s a bit of a chill in the air, the leaves are starting to turn, and my favorite tv shows are returning to my tv screen. It’s fall! And it means my hankering for spicy, strong, hot tea is returning in full force and I find myself craving cozy cups of delicious tea more and more these days (the perfect excuse to pull out my favorite teacups). There really is something soul-soothing about sitting down with a good knitting project, a hot cup of tea, and something good on the telly. So I thought I would share some of my favorite teas for sipping and knitting on these wonderful autumn days.
Most of these teas are from David’s Tea, but I am no way affiliated with David’s Tea. They just happen to have a shop right down the block from me, so I find myself getting in trouble there more often than I’d care to admit.
Glitter and Gold – This delicious black tea has just a hint of spice. It’s often the tea I grab first thing in the morning because I find it to be the perfect tea to give me that jolt to get going in the day. And it’s actually just a beautiful tea to look at, with small sugar crystals and delightfully adorable teeny stars sprinkled in with the tea and spice mixture.
Roasted Gyokuro – This is one of my absolute favorite teas of all time. It is so delicious with beautifully nutty notes that enriches the overall flavor of this green tea. It’s a bit on the pricy side for a tea, so I have to watch myself and make sure I don’t blow through my whole bag in just a few weeks. But this is a tea worthy of savoring.
Cream of Earl Grey – This is my go-to tea any time of the day. If I’m not sure what I feel like drinking, it’s so easy to just reach for this delicious black tea. It has just the right amount of bergamot for my tastes, and I love the smooth flavor the hint of cream provides. With just a touch of milk, these tea is one I routinely rely on.
Jasmine Black Pearls – This one is my newest favorite.It’s the best of both worlds, a lovely black tea with the flavor of refreshing jasmine.These delicious little pearls bloom as soon as you place them the boiling water, producing a lovely black tea with just a hint of jasmine. A great tea for sipping all day long.
What are some of your favorite teas? I’m always looking to add to my collection.
