Every culture has had its celebrations of Autumn throughout history. They come together to express gratitude for the bounty of the previous year. As a last chance to celebrate the harvest, these gatherings are usually held before the arrival of Winter, when most crops would be unusable. It would take the last few harvests to sustain a community through Winter. While most people are fortunate to have plenty of food throughout the year, there are still many reasons to gather with family and friends in Autumn.
Revolution Tea believes that inviting friends and family over to host an Autumn tea party is a great way of keeping this tradition alive. We recommend tea, seasonal treats and tea. You and your guests will look forward to it every year as the weather turns colder and darker, and the leaves begin changing into beautiful reds, yellows and oranges. Here are some ideas for decor and menu ideas before you send out invitations to your Autumn tea party.
Your Autumn Tea Party menu
You’ll want to offer more than one type of tea at your Autumn tea party. Your guests will have different tastes, but a menu that includes all traditional autumn flavours will be the best way to honour the traditions. An Autumn tea party should include a variety of teas made with warm spices such as cinnamon, cardamom and cloves. These teas will perfectly complement the delicious treats that you are serving.
What kind of tea should you have on your list? Revolution Tea has a wide variety of teas that you can choose from.
Our Bombay Chai Black tea is a great choice for an Autumn tea party. It’s Autumn in a cup with ginger, cloves and nutmeg. It will perfectly complement the treats you serve and make it an essential addition to any autumn tea party menu.
Our Organic Maple Pu-erh tea has a strong aroma that makes you want to dive in. It is a unique blend of earthy and sweet flavours with a subtle sweetness.
Our Citrus Spice Herbal Tea is a unique blend of traditional autumn flavours. It contains a combination of cinnamon, cloves and citrus. It is caffeine-free for those with a caffeine addiction or who are allergic.
These are just some of the many teas we offer.
Autumn Tea Party Snacks
The tea is the main event at an Autumn Tea Party, but it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t include snacks. You should find everything you need at your local supermarket, including pumpkin pie, cinnamon rolls and spice cake. If you want to make your Fall party even more special, you can bake some of the more difficult to find treats. With maple tea frosting, you can make mini pumpkin pies, apple cider doughnuts, and pumpkin cupcakes.
Fall Tea Party Decoration
It’s Autumn; after all, cozy should be the theme. You can also use pillows and blankets to make your home cozy for inspiration. Warm, almost burnt oranges and burgundy are good choices for your napkins, table runners and plates. It will all be tied together with a floral centerpiece in a vase or hollowed pumpkin if you want to get creative.
