harvest apple by Ahista tea

Apple-picking season is finally here, and there’s no better time to enjoy this spiced apple blend! Apples are peeled, dusted with spice, and combined with a flaky crust just-baked into a rooibos base.

Ahista Tea is a luxury tea brand that specializes in single-batch progressive teas, culturally-inspired blends and contemporary ceramics. Each year, they assemble a collection of bespoke blends and experimental teas from India and regions that are historically influenced by Indian culture.

“Ahista” means “slowly” or “at a slow pace”–this brings to mind the art of slow living: taking a step back and savoring each moment with thoughtfulness and intention. We love Ahista Tea's take on infusing tradition and innovation into their teas and tea-related products, which are handmade, timeless, minimal, and sustainable.

With their minimalist approach, they aim to elevate experiences at Michelin-starred restaurants, luxury boutique hotels and cafés around the world. Be inspired by the beauty of simplicity and the art of slow living.

Now, with their harvest apple blend, you can enjoy a cup of the most iconic autumn classic, whose sweet pomaceous fruit originates in Asia. It pairs well with cheddar cheese or toasted almonds, and is best served as a dessert replacement or caffeine free alternative.

berry extreme  

Guayusa, found in the Amazonian Rainforest of Ecuador, is a natural energy-booster. This berry and spice blend is rich in antioxidants and provides benefits to the metabolism. If you're a fruity tea lover, this is a great option for Fall with the inclusion of warming spices such as cinnamon, fennel, and cardamom!

Sabroso Chai specializes in handmade natural and organic tea created from family traditions. Sabroso Chai is a women-owned company that carefully blends their teas in the USA. They buy from small villages across the world to help them grow as they do.

It is easy to tell that all of Sabroso Chai's blends are crafted with love and use high-quality ingredients. They are inspired by different cultures, resulting in unique and flavorful teas that can't be found anywhere else!

organic gold cup

Organic Gold Cup Chai by Stash Tea is a golden brew that yields a sweet and spicy cup. Aromatic chai spices are combined with turmeric, an Indian spice known for its brilliant yellow color and lively flavor notes. Smoother and milder than a traditional chai, this naturally caffeine-free chai is delicious plain or can be enjoyed with milk and sugar.

This golden chai blend is a wonderful option for any time of day, or after meals. It can help calm your stomach, reduce inflammation, and has many other health benefits. We love adding foamed oat milk for a golden latte. Add a drop of honey for some extra sweetness or to soothe a sore throat! 

Stash was founded in Portland, Oregon in 1972 by two hippies seeking a tea euphoria. Since then, Stash Tea’s mission has been to brew the boredom out of the world, with best-in-class ingredients and diverse flavors that delight the senses, surprise your taste buds, and brew up brighter and true-to-name.

This high-caffeine super tea contains yerba mate to support smooth energy, matcha to support focus, and turmeric to support vitality and wellness. No matter what life throws at you, this amazingly refreshing and energizing tea can help you stay fast, stay focused, and stay well.

Snarky Tea was created for women juggling their busy schedules, their families and their health – they were created for YOU! Their delicious, whole leaf tea pyramids serve as real life solutions for energy, sleep, relaxation, immunity, and detoxification.

As seen on ABC's Shark Tank, Snarky Tea was founded in 2016, and their Snark Squad is hellbent on reminding women to take charge of their health with functional tea blends and a great sense of humor. Live your best life with Snarky Tea!
