Embrace Fall With Autumn Tea

The days are growing shorter and the nights are becoming cooler, and summer is coming to an end once again. Fortunately, autumn tea will help you usher in the next season with joy. It will have you embracing the cooler weather to come and have you pining for the golds, oranges and reds of the autumn season. Autumn Tea is the perfect drink to usher in the cooler weather. It’s easy to make and even easier to enjoy!

Harvest your ingredients:

-5 cups apple juice, unsweetened

-5 cups boiling water

-5 teaspoons loose leaf tea

-2 cups cranberry juice

-1/3 cup sugar or honey

-5 tbsp lemon juice

-1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Start by placing the tea into your filter or strainer, then place that filter into a pitcher (make sure this pitcher is heatproof). Add the hot water and allow the tea to steep for approximately 5 minutes. Then, remove the tea leaves and/or strainer.

Add your apple juice, cranberry juice, sugar (or honey), lemon juice, and the pumpkin pie spice. Stir until the sugar or honey is fully dissolved. The Autumn tea is ready to be served and enjoyed!

This recipe should make about 3 quarts, which serves about 12 people. However, after you have a sip of this drink – 3 quarts might not seem like enough! The notes of spicy chai will warm you inside and out and delight your senses with a warm aroma and flavor. The mixture of the tea with the cranberry, pumpkin pie spice and lemon will make you feel sunny and happy even as the temperatures begin to drop.  Just cuddle up with your mug of Autumn tea and some friends and relax.

Our recipe uses a spicy chai black tea blend but you can use any black tea like a darjeeling with its aromatic and mild flavor which would blend well with the rest of the ingredient. Don’t get confused by the chai tea we used. Chai tea usually refers to masala chai which literally means mixed spice tea. In the tea our recipe uses, those mixed spices include aniseed, cinnamon, ginger and other special spices.

Or, you can use a fruit or herbal tea if you so desire! A berry blend or apple tea blend would be a welcome addition and make for a sweeter and fruitier beverage.

Do not fear or dread the oncoming change of seasons! Instead, embrace the short days and long nights and face them head on with a steaming cup of Autumn tea in your hand!

How is fruit tea made?

ESP Emporium has a wide selection of fruit tea available for purchase. Fruit tea comes in a wide variety of flavors and blends, and our fruit teas include everything from blueberries and pineapples to watermelon.

You might be wondering how fruit tea is made. How is it possible to create such delicious and interesting blends of flavors with only a few pieces of dried fruit? Today, we’re going to teach you everything you need to know about fruit tea production.

Essentially, fruit teas are made by taking and then mixing in blends of dried fruit, hibiscus, rosebuds, leaves, blossoms, petals... etc. The hot water extracts the flavor from all of the ingredients, which is why strong fruit flavors can be experienced when only a small amount of fruit is actually included in the blend.

It’s even possible to make fruit infused tea for yourself at home. Here’s how:

Step 1) Create extra strong tea by pouring 6 cups of water into a pitcher with six tea spoons of loose leaf tea.

Step 2) Select whichever fruit you would like. Popular options include lemons, oranges, strawberries, pineapples, and peaches.

Step 3) Extract the juice from your chosen fruit. To do this, peel it, slice it, and remove the pits or core.

Step 4) Create approximately 3 to 4 cups of squeezed juice, then add it to the tea and stir well.

Step 5) Add sugar to taste

Fruit tea can be served either chilled or hot. If you do choose to chill the tea, simply leave it in the fridge for a few hours. 

Benefits of fruit tea

Fruit tea, like any food with fruit in it, contains high levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants are powerful compounds that have been linked with all sorts of benefits, including reducing the effects of aging and contributing to a better complexion.

Fruit teas are also high in Vitamin C, which has a number of unique and powerful benefits on our bodies. Vitamin C helps improve our immune system and reduces the risk of infections. It also helps regulate blood pressure and has been used to treat hypertension. In short, Vitamin C leads to a healthy body and a healthy heart. ESP Emporium even offers special Vitamin C rich tea blends to help you unlock all of these benefits.

With so many different types of fruit tea available, it’s difficult to be specific about the benefits of fruit tea. We have a number of different blends of fruit tea, including fruit teas will unique names like Miami Ice or Grandma’s Garden. These tea blends feature a wide range of fruits and truly have to be tasted in order to recognize their unique flavor and powerful aromas.

Whether you choose blueberry, strawberry, or pineapple fruit teas, each blend is delicious in its own unique way.

The Benefits Of Drinking Fruit Blend Teas

If you’re looking for tasty, aromatic tea, look no further than ESP Emporium’s wide selection of fruit tea blends. Our online store features everything from cranberry fruit teas to watermelon fruit teas and virtually everything in between!

Today, we’re going to tell you about the benefits of fruit tea. We’ll also talk about how to make fruit tea for yourself, as well as how to use fruit tea as a treatment for some of the world’s most dangerous diseases – like cancer and diabetes.

The most popular benefits of drinking fruit tea

Fruit tea has a number of unique and powerful benefits that make it popular among all types of people. Here are a few reasons why fruit tea is in such high demand around the world:

Sugary-drink replacement: Instead of having a sugary fruit drink, why not pick up a mug of fruit tea? Fruit tea tastes similar to fruit drinks although it has a fraction of the sugar content and almost no calories. Whether you’re on a diet or just trying to live a healthier lifestyle, fruit tea is an excellent cravings-quencher. 

High in Vitamin C: Just like fruit itself, most fruit teas contain exceptionally high levels of Vitamin C. Vitamin C benefits everything from our immune system to our eyes.

Easy to drink before bed: Fruit tea doesn’t contain caffeine, which means it can easily be consumed before bed without causing you to stay up all night shaking.

Strong and flavorful taste: Some tea blends do not feature a strong flavor. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing – indeed, many people prefer weakly-flavored teas. However, weakly flavored teas can dissuade beginner tea drinkers. Fortunately, fruit teas often contain strong flavors that are instantly noticeable. From the moment that fruit tea touches your tongue, its unique flavor is obvious. This makes it an ideal tea for those who are just trying tea for the first time – like children.

Energy boost: You probably feel a big energy boost after consuming a fruity drink. However, that energy boost is mostly the result of sugar consumption. And heavy sugar consumption almost always leads to a crash. Instead of sapping your energy, most fruit teas give you a clean, natural energy boost that can help you get through the day. And, since fruit teas don’t contain caffeine, they’re still safe to drink before bed.

What are fruit teas made out of?

Fruit tea manufacturers have become increasingly creative over the years. When it was first created, fruit tea mostly consisted of fruits like raspberries, oranges, and blueberries. Today, fruit teas can be found in flavors like cherry, apple, blackcurrant, and peach, and there are hundreds of different types of fruit tea blends that combine these flavors with popular herbs and spices.

Fruit tea can also be made at home quite easily. The most basic type of fruit tea blend involves brewing a cup of tea as you normally would before adding a splash of fruit juice to it. Or, make a pot of your favorite tea, add some fruit juice to it, then leave it in a pitcher in the fridge overnight for a refreshing summertime beverage.

Conclusion

How you drink your fruit tea is entirely up to you. Fruit tea comes in all shapes, sizes, blends, and flavors, which means that you can easily customize it according to what you like. Take a look at our wide selection of fruit tea blends today!
