Warm, flavorful teas are a great addition to any cool spring night, chilly morning, or when a raw spring day fails to heat up.
While winter’s chill lingers on during spring nights, there are few better ways to relax and enjoy the season than with a warm cup of tea. Whether you like your tea sweet, spicy, earthy, or a mixture of all three, there’s a spring (or fall) tea for you. If you’re looking for some soothing, delicious herbal teas to cozy up with, consider any or all of the three types below.
The spring season brings many signs of color, magnolia, forsythia and crocus flowers sprouting up everywhere. Spring is such a tease with the return of fierce March winds, frozen morning puddles, and the threat of a frozen buds. It’s not too late to say good bye to fall and winter and the cycle of cold and warmth with a pumpkin-flavored rooibos. Specifically, seek out a blend that utilizes ingredients like cinnamon and ginger to create a beverage that is sweet but provides a touch of spiciness that helps warm you up during those cool spring nights or mornings, and even raw, cloudy days. Even if you’re indulging in this tea indoors, a seasonal rooibos that contains ingredients like buckwheat and pumpkin seeds will have a woody, earthy flavor that transports you to the great outdoors with every sip.
If you enjoy drinking tea after work to decompress, soothing blends such as vanilla-flavored chamomile will be the perfect spring drinks for you. Not only is chamomile great for relieving stress, but it’s associated with claims as an immune-boosting tea. It doesn’t hurt that a cup of vanilla chamomile will deliver a sweet flavor and soothing aroma every time you take a sip. Consider seeking a blend that also contains lemongrass, which adds a floral layer to this tea’s delightful flavor.
Almost any form of chai is going to deliver that warm, cozy feeling you want on a cool spring evening. Due to the spicy nature of chai, balancing it out with something sweet like honey or vanilla is the best way to go.
Brewing one of these spring or fall warmup herbal teas to cozy up with will provide you with a delicious way to remain warm, calm, and healthy throughout the season. Whether you like drinking tea to start the day or to end the day—or somewhere in between—these blends will do the trick.
