I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Teavana. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
I am just going to go ahead and put it out there: I love Teavana fall teas. Favorite seasonal tea flavors, Pumpkin Spice Brulee and Spiced Apple Cider (even the names sound delicious and oh-so-perfect for Autumn), are back!
There is no reason at all to be nervous about brewing loose teas. I know I was a little unsure if I could do it myself. But if you have a tea infuser mug, it is really very simple to do. Teavana puts the tea preparation directions on the tea packaging. All you need to do is measure the amount of tea you desire into the infuser, add hot water and let it brew. Simply remove the infuser and your tea is ready to drink.
I have the Teavana Perfect Tea Maker and a Teavana infuser mug. I honestly can’t say I like using one more than the other. I probably use the infuser mug the most often – at least so far – it’s perfect for making a quick cup of tea. The Perfect Tea Maker is really fun to use. It brews the tea, and then you set it on top of your mug so it drains right into your cup.
Pumpkin Spice Brulee versus Spiced Apple Cider.
I love to open up the tea canisters and smell these teas. Pumpkin Spice Brulee is an oolong tea that contains pumpkin, cinnamon, white chocolate, dark chocolate, carob and other spices. You can actually see the pieces of chocolate in this tea! Its creamy sweetness combined with the spices is so yummy. ($12.98, 2 oz.)
Spiced Apple Cider is an herbal (rooibos) tea that definitely captures the essence of fall for me. Apples, cinnamon, plum, orange, carob and chicory make this fragrant tea one I like to cuddle up with when it’s cold outside. ($8.98, 2 oz)
My favorite Teavana fall tea flavor is Pumpkin Spice Brulee. My favorite Teavana fall tea flavor is Spiced Apple Cider. I truly cannot decide! One day I will drink Pumpkin Spice Brulee and think, Yes, this is my favorite. Then the next time I drink Spiced Apple Cider I’ll think, No, THIS is my favorite. Both teas are delicious and perfect in their own ways, and I love both.
Teavana Fall Favorites are best enjoyed alone or shared with friends. Lately, my favorite “escape” from the kids involves making myself a hot cup of Pumpkin Spice Brulee (or Spiced Apple Cider) and sitting outside in the Autumn sunshine. The weather is cooler, but the tea keeps me warm while I take a few moments to relax.
I know it would be fun to serve Teavana teas at a Fall get-together (maybe this Halloween night? Football Game Day? Moms Group?) I can’t wait to see which of Teavana’s Fall Favorites my friends like best. I wonder if they will think it’s as hard to pick a winner as I do…
If you like to take your tea to-go, check out the Teavana Contour Tumbler. You can actually brew tea on-the-go with it!
