REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS
Orange Spice Black Tea (Stash Tea)
Stash Tea’s Orange Spice Black Tea blends full-bodied black teas with the finest cinnamon, orange peel, and orange oil, resulting in a very aromatic tea with the flavor of zesty orange and spicy cinnamon. We’re not sorry that this unique tea combination perfectly accompanies the chocolatey peanut butter goodness of a classic Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Fun fact: America’s favorite Halloween candy is Reese’s!
Cacao Tea (MiCacao)
Can’t get enough chocolate? We’ll give you a tea solution — pair your M&Ms with MiCacao's loose-leaf Cacao Tea. This 100% organic cacao-based small-batch tea is made from the shell of the cacao bean with organic cacao nibs and sourced from co-op farms in South America which operate in accordance with the highest standards of quality.
Pink Citrus Magik (Tea Kitten)
You’ll taste the rainbow and see the rainbow drinking Pink Citrus Magik with your Skittles. This fruity, citrusy green tea blend channels your inner sorceress with a magikal ingredient that turns this brew into a playful pink delight (make sure to get a bright blue flower in each brew). If the first steep is blue, add a drop of lemon and watch for an enchanting purple hue!
Spicy Masala Chai (Zest Tea)
You're not you when you're hungry or tired, so we recommend snacking on your Snickers with this Spicy Masala Chai by Zest Tea — it offers the same levels of caffeine as coffee without the negative side effects. Not to mention, this flavorful infusion of South Indian black tea and traditional spices packs a punch that some would call divine.
Olive & Dingo's Color-Changing Tea (Chariteas)
Candy Corn is the classic Halloween candy, but why not spice it up with a spellbinding color-changing tea? Blended lovingly using organically produced and non-caffeinated ingredients such as dried mango, coconut, and rosehips, Olive & Dingo's Color-Changing Tea is made possible thanks to the magical Butterfly Pea Flower, a Thai herb that when mixed with citrus turns your tea purple!
Black Tea With Caramel (Oteas)
For an extra-special sweet treat with your gooey Twix, take a sip of this wonderful Black Tea With Caramel by Oteas. Combining the slightly tart taste of black tea with the decadent buttery flavors of caramel, this unique blend is a smooth and balancing treat for any tea lover.
Laughing Lemon Yerba Mate (Chariteas)
Starburst might be unexplainably juicy, but we know the energizing Laughing Lemon Yerba Mate is delicious due to the herbal and grassy flavors of yerba mate meeting the bright sweet qualities of a lemon drop. Said to boast many healthful properties, this yerba mate will give you a smooth caffeine boost. You can enjoy Laughing Lemon in many ways: hot, over ice, as the liquid in a smoothie, or steeped with your favorite sweetener.
Lavender Earl Grey (Wight Tea CO)
Just like a Kit Kat, this Lavender Earl Grey by Wight Tea Co is a simple but perfect combination of lavender and bergamot with Ceylon black tea leaves — reach for both treats whenever you need a balanced break.
