A Ramble in Tea

The Mamas and the Papas might be dreaming of California, but when autumn blows in we dream of tea. (Typical, we know…) Whether you’re scrumping for apples, crunching through leaf-strewn woods or keeping warm by the fireside, we’ve gathered some of our favourite autumnal flavours for a Ramble in Tea—from smoky Lapsang Souchong to uplifting Apple Orchard.

So get your best walking boots on, zip up that windbreaker and join us for a ramble…

10:00 a.m.

Our ramble starts a little later than we’d planned, thanks to a burst of morning rain. Outside, the forest air is steamy with the scent of autumn leaves—it’s just the atmosphere for our aromatic, earthy Imperial Puerh.

Puerh is something really quite special. The only tea to be fermented, certain puerhs can fetch staggeringly high prices when sold at auction—with just a few grams going for thousands of pounds. Our Imperial Puerh has an aromatic, earthy flavour that’s reminiscent of autumn rain and woodland walks.

1:00 p.m.

Smell that? We must be close to a bonfire—and it’s not even November yet.

Bonfires always make us think of Lapsang Souchong, the smokiest of teas. Discovered by accident back in the 16th century, the technique of drying Lapsang Souchong over pinewood fires gives it a distinctive smoky flavour that’s completely unique—and completely delicious.

4:00 p.m.

We’re no scrumpers, but we love stumbling upon an apple orchard as our ramble comes to an end. It’s the perfect season for cider—or for a mug of our Apple Orchard blend. With a black tea base topped with whole chunks of apple, lemon verbena leaves and pink cornflower petals, it’s a heady brew of everything we love about autumn.

7:00 p.m.

Home sweet home, with the fire blazing, our feet up and a hot mug of Whisky Tea close at hand. If you’re having a Sober October, there’s no better replacement for that evening tipple than a good old cup of tea—this blend’s delicious with Scottish shortbread.

Reckon there’s something we missed on our ramble, or an autumnal tea we should have mentioned? Comment below—we’ll give it a try.
