Water For Wellness - Fall Tea Recipes  

By: Baylee Maust

As October brings cool, crisp weather, staying hydrated becomes harder. Why drink water when you can have a hot pumpkin spiced latte or chai tea latte, right? Wrong! Drinking water doesn't have to be boring. If you’re looking for a refreshing, yet healthy alternative during this cozy time of year, tea is the superior choice.

Tea contains many antioxidants and health properties that boost your immune system, which is especially useful during this time of the year. Cold weather mixed with dehydration makes viruses and bacteria thrive; therefore, if we aren’t drinking enough water, we’re more susceptible to illness during fall. A hot tea drink tastes great and greatly reduces your chances of succumbing to the dreadful fall cold this season. Cozy up with these three easy tea recipes to stay warm, festive, and healthy this season.

1. Apple Spiced Tea

Grab a friend and hit the apple orchard to make this fresh apple spice tea recipe. Since apples are low in calories but high in fiber and vitamin C, they’re super beneficial to boost your immune system, aid weight loss, and fight diabetes. Using cloves will transform this beverage into herbal tea while maintaining that delicious fall flavor. Don’t forget to save those leftover apples for the base of a homemade apple pie to enjoy with your autumn tea!

You will need:

  • 1 cup of filtered water
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 tea bags
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • Your choice of sweetener
  • 4 apple slices

Step One: Boil the clove pieces, water, and cinnamon stick pieces in a small saucepan.

Step Two: Turn off the heat, add tea bags, cover, and allow to steep for three minutes.

Step Three: Remove the tea bags and stir in the apple juice and your sweetener. Turn the heat back on to low and simmer until heated through.

Step Four: Place two apple slices in the bottom of two mugs. Pour the hot tea over the apples. Remember to strain out the cloves and cinnamon sticks. Serve with additional cinnamon sticks in the mugs for a sweet, decorative twist!

2. Cinnamon and Ginger Tea

No matter how hard we try, sometimes we fall victim to the dreaded fall cold. This cinnamon and ginger tea recipe is the perfect remedy for soothing sore throats, warming your body temperature, and getting you well-rested and recovered in no time! Substitute the water for almond milk or coconut milk to transform this into a cream tea latte.

Ginger is known to have a variety of health benefits to restore your health and get you back on your feet. Its tasty, distinct flavor is known to reduce nausea, detox the body, and relieve congestion. The sweet, cinnamon spice provides a soothing and calming aroma. Use honey to sweeten the tea and help reduce mucus buildup in your nose and throat.

3. Cranberry Tea

This drink includes an array of fruits that possess a plentiful amount of flavor and health benefits when combined. Cranberries are a powerful fruit because they are high in nutrient and antioxidant content, making them strong in fighting urinary tract infections, certain types of cancers, and high blood pressure. The oranges and lemons will give the tea a delicious citrus flavor and serve as a good source of vitamin C.

Pair this autumn tea with some dessert scones at your fall-themed dinner party or grab your travel mug and head to the pumpkin patch with this delicious drink. A GEO Tumbler features premium insulation that keeps beverages hot for up to 6 hours so you can enjoy your piping hot cranberry tea all day.

  • 2 oranges, juiced
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 12 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks

Step One: In a large pot, combine water and cranberries.

Step Three: Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes.

Step Three: Add sugar, orange juice, lemon juice, cloves, and cinnamon sticks. Cover, and steep for 1 hour.

Curl up by the fire and watch your favorite Halloween movies with these refreshingly festive autumn tea recipes by your side. Many of these fruity and cinnamon spice brewed tea blends can be served hot or chilled to make iced tea!

We know it can be tempting to hit your local coffee shop for a seasonal latte, but homemade black tea or green tea, fresh fruits, and filtered water are just as delicious!
