Made with fresh apples, brown sugar, black tea and fall spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove, this celebratory apple cider is sure to bewitch even your hardest to please friends and family. Want to know the secret charm? Add a shot of spiced rum or your favorite bourbon on top and garnish with a cinnamon stick for extra enchantment. We recommend using Black Tea With Caramel by Oteas in this recipe. Pro Witch’s Tip: Make sure to bring out your biggest cauldron to brew this coven-sized beverage.


You can’t go wrong with this sweet and simple draught. All you need to whip up this potion is your favorite chai, a sweetener of your choice, and the magical ingredient - Baileys Irish Cream. If you want to go beyond this realm, add a swirl of whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon on top to complete this perfect treat for your spooky movie night marathon. The comforting scent of cinnamon is bound to raise (hopefully, only your own) spirits. Pro Witch’s Tip: If you’re looking for a classic, bold chai we recommend using Chico Chai’s Original Chai in this recipe.



Even a witch needs to detox every once in a while. If you’re tired of eating heavy holiday foods, stir up this refreshing iced elixir made with rooibos tea, freshly sliced apples, and a cinnamon stick. Steep the apples and cinnamon in a large pitcher with the cooled rooibos tea and serve over ice, you’ll soon feel the magical antioxidant, immunity-boosting, and anti-inflammatory properties soaking in. Pro Witch's Tip: For a brew that’s double, double, toil and trouble we recommend using Shantea Thyme’s Cinnamon Apple rooibos tea.



You don’t need to add much sorcery to make this delightfully unexpected concoction, simply simmer and infuse oolong tea with white chocolate, cream, milk, and vanilla. Pro Witch’s Tip: We recommend using the creamy Milk Oolong by Aesthete Tea to naturally enhance this potent brew.



Why are these cookies so magical? These comforting fall treats cast a spell from the first bite, making it absolutely impossible to eat only one. So consider yourself warned...these black tea-infused cookies are so deliciously addictive and easy to make they must be supernatural! Pro Witch’s Tip: The black tea emphasizes all of the original snickerdoodle deliciousness while bringing out a new level of depth, we recommend using Harney & Sons Paris.
