The Best Fall Teas

Happy October!
The weather is still warm, although it's supposed to cool in the coming weeks, but that hasn't stopped me from drinking copious amounts of tea. If you are a tea aficionado, like myself, or if you're looking for something new to drink, here are some of the best fall teas. 

Loose leaf tea is such a game changer! My mom brought me a teavana perfect tea maker, a bag of rock sugar, and a tea tin when she visited me in September, and I immediately ordered this tea online (why doesn't Reno have a teavana?!?!) It is sweeter and fruitier than the really heavy, spicy, chai teas that I usually drink, but it is really great. This is a tea that I could drink iced or hot during any season. Let's also take a minute to talk about how cool teas look when they're not bagged!

The downside of loose leaf tea is having to clean the strainer or tea ball when you're done steeping the tea. Tea bags are good for lazy days when I don't want to do more dishes than absolutely necessary. This chai is different from the first one because it is more traditional, less fruity, and way more spicy. I like to drink this one hot with a splash of almond milk and a little bit of sugar. 

I like to drink the other two chai teas like tea, with just the smallest amount of milk in it. If I want a good chai latte, this is what I use instead of trying to make my own. My roommate has a couple tins of powder in the pantry and let me try it out, and it is so good. All it takes for a perfect latte is a couple of spoonfuls of powder mixed into a cup of hot water, and I am obsessed. 

This is the only fall tea that I've been drinking that isn't a chai tea! I really like genmai tea because it has a greater depth of flavor than the typical green tea due to the toasted rice mixed with it. Sometimes I fill up my hydroflask with genmai tea before heading to class when it's cold outside. 

Let me know in the comments what your favorite fall teas are. I love fall and have already done a post on styling fall dresses, but I have plenty more autumnal posts coming in the future!
