In the 21st century, the choice of teas and tisanes is permanently expanding and bringing tea lovers. New, improved varieties continue to attract people into the huge land of teas–frequently custom-tailored for the four seasons. Blends of specialty organic teas from a number of countries such as China and Sri Lanka attract. 


It’s the Season: Summer is a time to get a light touch and change of linens, clothes, opened display windows, and fresh air, it’s time that I unwind in the morning with a cup of flavored black tea (for the caffeine increase ) so that I could get more bodily and be more active in the more days and nights of summer. Iced tea creates a splash in this period of sun and frolic. Brewing black tea and infusing it with fresh citrus such as limes, oranges, and lemons, in a pitcher filled with ice hockey is a must-have. Adding a glass of iced tea with summer fruit miniature scones or cucumber tea sandwiches and fresh vegetable and fruit salads to grilled fish is ideal.  Curing Seasonal Teas: Fruit teas (like blackberry and strawberry), white peony with fruit notes, and iced black tea are summer favorites to assist the body cool and feel energized. Other fruity profiles comprise blood orange, citrus hibiscus herbal, mango black, black, and peach fruit teas are ideal for the summer months.  Superfoods with Tea: Blueberries, peaches, pineapple, and berries.
Superfoods with Tea: Cabbage, chia seeds, citrus fruits, and pears. 

Curing Seasonal Teas: Black and green flavored tea heated using spices, pumpkin spice tea into peppermint bark, chocolate spice, and chamomile teas are in demand as well as green tea and green tea blends–using its influenza and cold-fighting forces are always welcome during the autumn harvest. Not to ignore warming chai using its own black tea and spices as well as Earl Grey, a black tea with orange peeloil of bergamot.  Superfoods with Tea: Apples, grapefruit, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes.
It’s the Season:’Tis the period of days. It’s a period when wildlife hibernates, the very first snowfall arrives, firewood is stacked, and the heater kicks on. Savoring a cup of hot black tea for energy in the morning and day is perfectly paired with tea biscuits infused with Earl Grey or lavender.

It’s the Season: After winter days are almost over, it’s time for renewal and also to make your home and body lighter for warmer days ahead. It’s typical for me to brew a pot of green tea in the day and a chamomile flower blend at night to welcome sleep during the Daylight Savings Time change. Healthful sandwiches paired with teas, vegetarian entrees, and green salads using tea-infused dressings come into play. It’s time to lose extra unwanted winter and get a move on with lighter fare.
Scented and flavored teas are favorites such as pumpkin spice for autumn and peppermint bark throughout the holiday season are in demand in homes, and at coffee and tea shops to health resorts. And flavored green tea and black tea with notes of florals, herbs, and fruits are favorites in the spring and summer is a time for most iced teas with sprigs of fresh herbs in the garden. Read on–discover your favorite brew for each season of the year!

It’s the Season: In the Sierra at Lake Tahoe and other areas around the USA and globally, there are hints of autumn, while it’s the transformation in hues of shrub leaves or a crisp chill in the atmosphere. Tea is a joy in this season. I love to sip on a cup of cinnamon or any spiced tea paired with a refreshing, hot miniature vanilla scone either homemade or bought at a coffee shop in Seattle, the time that I seem to see.
