Apple Pie Tea Mix (AIP Friendly)

Apple Pie Tea (AIP Friendly)

I cannot believe that it is already the middle of fall! The days are (finally) starting to cool down and in just a few short weeks our Baby Sweet Potato will be making his or her grand entrance into the world. When I think back to the day in March when I found out that I was pregnant, it seemed almost impossible that we would make it to this point, yet here we are!

Fall is a time when things generally tend to start slowing down for me. I like to stay at home, travel less, focus in on preparing for holiday family time and make time to do more low-key fun activities. That has been especially true this year, for obvious reasons. For some, that may sound kind of boring but the truth is that I love it. Summer is usually very hectic for our family and the holidays are filled with a lot of hustle and bustle so having a chance in between to slow down is a blessing I look forward to.

One of my favorite ways to wind down and enjoy the cooling weather and relaxing atmosphere of fall is with a nice warm beverage. In the past I was a die-hard PSL (Pumpkin Spice Late) girl, but those days are long behind be. I have traded them in for a variety of equally comforting and autumn-inspired teas. One of my favorites is this blend. It is warm and spicy and sweet without having caffeine or any nightshade or seed based spices.

I hope that you also get the opportunity to have some relaxation time over this coming month and enjoy a nice cup of something warm and fall-ish!


Apple Pie Tea (AIP Friendly)

Apple Pie Tea Mix (AIP Friendly)

(Makes 2-4 cups of tea depending on desired strength)


6 tsp loose leaf rooibos tea

2 TBS chopped unsweetened dried apples 

1 tsp ground ginger

1 cinnamon stick cut into 3-4 pieces

1 tsp ground cloves

1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

maple syrup to taste (optional)


Combine all of your ingredients with the exception of the maple syrup into a bowl and stir to combine. To make tea place anywhere from a teaspoon to a Tablespoon’s worth of the tea mixture in a tea ball or strainer (The more tea you use the stronger the flavor will be) and pour 8 ounces of water over top. Allow it to steep for 4-5 minutes. Remove the tea leaves and sweeten with maple syrup to taste.
