A very unflattering show of my knee, but I had a little friend who helped me make the post today and kept me company! He really like my sweater - I guess it was comfy :)

Hi everyone!

It has been a few days since I posted anything, mainly because of the holiday, but also because I have been trying to offset how much I post. I don’t feel the need to post every day (and I think a good chunk of people who blog tend to only do it once or twice a week if I am correct!) but sometimes I do post every day. Sometimes it is 3 or 4 times a week. And I’m sure there will be some weeks where I only post once or twice. And that is okay too!

I think today I couldn’t get more into the spirit of Fall if I tried. Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who celebrate it by the way! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday with family and friends and enough food to feed a small army. Because that definitely occurred in my house. #leftoversforweeks

I decided to write this post outside today! So I am sitting on Bean Around Books’ cute little patio out front,taking in the crisp, sunny fall day, enjoying the coziness of my new scarf which I recently bought and drinking a cup of the tea that I will be talking about today for all of you!

The name of the game is a piping hot cup of Hot Apple Cider Tea.

This one is a good one folks.

This tea smells like apple cider and that is because it is made with a lot of the same ingredients as apple cider. The warm, sugary drink I used to love and enjoy when visiting the Maple Ridge pumpkin patch as a kid, but now in a tea format!

It’s got a very strong smell to it, cinnamon & apples- which are 2 of the ingredients!

  • Red Rooibos
  • Diced Apples
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Cloves
  • Cardamom
  • Natural Flavoring

Mmmm! So much good stuff! All natural flavoring too! That’s my rule of thumb – real ingredients you can actually pronounce! Ain’t that swell?

It tastes like apple cider but because I don’t add anything to the tea when trying it out, it is unsweetened. I imagine if you were to add a pack of sugar ( or perhaps some heated up apple juice?), it would taste just like sweetened apple cider.

This tea would also be a great contender to be combined with the spiced drink mix recipe I posted a few weeks back. You can check out that post here: Recipe Feature: Spiced Drink Mix on The Tea Blog

As always, you can purchase any one of our over 70 premium loose leaf teas in store or online, including our Hot Apple Cider Tea at www.beanaroundbooks.com 

Did you see my little spider friend? So cute! I think he needs a name. Then again, he jumped off my hand and I don’t know where he went, so maybe not!

Have a great Tuesday everybody, and stay tuned for another Tea at a Glance feature!

Cheers! Lindsay 🙂
