Pumpkin flavors are being introduced earlier and earlier each year.  This year, it made its appearance in August.  Walk into any Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks and there they are!  No longer just in lattes, it is now in donuts, muffins, pancakes, waffles, bread and, of course, pies.  We used to wait until October when the leaves actually started to turn into their brilliant yellow and gold hues, but our first inquiry this year for our Green Pumpkin Cream appeared in our inbox early August!  So we followed everyone’s lead and brought back these seasonal favorites early.

We welcome Fall with our bestsellers - Green Pumpkin CreamCaramel Pumpkin Spice and Apple Cinnamon Tisane.  Each is different but all bring you the taste of the season. To these, we’ve added our popular Fall Tea Box.  Although Apple Cinnamon Tisane is offered all year long, the others are seasonal selections and available for a very limited time.

Green Pumpkin Cream is our Fall sleeper hit.  It has a perfectly balanced and inviting aroma and taste of Pumpkin and Vanilla Cream with the added surprise of being on a Green Tea base.  Light and fragrant, it’s become a customer favorite.

The Caramel Pumpkin Spice is a recent addition. It starts with a Black tea base, still the most popular of all teas, to which we’ve added Apple pieces, some Ginger root and Carrot bits, Roasted mate, Cloves, Caramel and natural flavor. It is warm and spicy.  Good with a dash of steamed milk or on its own.

Apple Cinnamon Tisane is a long-time favorite and has been a welcome Fall blend withRooibos as the base, into which we’ve blended Cinnamon, Apple, Marigold flowers and Apple & Cinnamon flavoring. This blend is caffeine free.

These are not all.  The Organic Makaibari Estate Autumnal is from the season – it’s in the name!  It is manufactured later in the year, in the Autumn, after the spring and summer heat and the monsoon rains.  The cup is not quite as light as early-season Darjeelings and it can tolerate a spot of milk if you are so inclined.
