Kate Adams—the I-have-a-tea-for-whatever-ails-you sleuth of my Port Aster Secrets series—shares this tea to get us into the autumn spirit. 😉
To your favorite pot of black or rooibos tea, add:
-a finely chopped slice of dried apple
-a pinch of ground vanilla bean
-¼-½ tsp of pumpkin spice to taste (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, allspice)
Then add boiled water and steep for 2-3 mins, sweeten with honey, and enjoy.
The aroma alone will set you dreaming of pumpkin pies and holiday meals.

Sorry to admit that coffee is my drink of choice. And only in the morning. If I drink anything in the afternoon, though, it would be tea…probably Lady Grey with maybe spearmint in it. and orange
Interesting, in Canada, we call it Earl Grey. I’m assuming that’s the same kind of tea. I’ve never tried it with spearmint…something new to experiment with!
Lovely recipe, I´ll try for sure!
Let me know how you like it! I’ve heard from a couple of people via email that they’ve really enjoyed it.
