A Recipe For a Cozy Fall Treat For a Bit of "Me Time": Caramel Apple Spice Tea

By Lauren Hartmann |

Caramel Apple Spice Tea Recipe >> via Lauren Hartmann @ BabbleI’ve developed a morning ritual over the past couple of months of getting up early and having a cup of coffee while blogging before Fern wakes up. It’s been a great time for me to get work done and has also given me a nice little bit of “me time”, even if I am working. I love the peaceful calm of the mornings and now that fall has settled in and it’s dark and chilly in the mornings I savor this time even more. Something about it is so perfect and cozy, even for a “non-morning person” like myself.

But lately I’ve been wanting to upgrade my morning beverage for something a little more fall’ish and festive. Something caramel-y and apple-y but not quite as sweet as cider sounded like just the thing, so I came up with a little recipe and it hit the spot for my morning “me time”, although I’m pretty sure it would be equally cozy and delicious at any time of day!

Check out the recipe after the jump!

Homemade Caramel Apple Spice Tea For One Recipe

(You can multiply this recipe if you’re making it for more people)


-Package of Werther’s Chewy Caramels

-Milk (I used whole, but you could use anything from skim to evaporated depending on the consistency you’re going for)

-Packet of mulling spices (I used K.W. Knudsen Organic Mulling Spices)

-Cinnamon sticks (optional)

Caramel Sauce:

*Heat 4 Werther’s Chewy Caramels with 1/2 cup whole milk and warm in a sauce pan over medium/low heat until combined

Apple Spice Tea:

*Boil water

*Add a packet of mulling spices to your water and let the bag steep for 5 minutes (or really however long you can wait – I’m super impatient!)


When you’re done pour caramel mixture into your tea, stir with a cinnamon stick (optional, but extra festive) and enjoy this simple little taste of fall heaven!

    Man, these look tasty! My kids might even drink these. Been trying for years to get them to swig tea for its health benefits. But for some reason, they won’t budge! They just don’t like it. Anyone else have this issue??? Any luck getting your kids to drink tea? Or is this a lost cause??

    I’ve had great success getting my oldest girl to drink tea, she especially loves the teas from here:
    Our favorite is the coconut oolong! It’s easily our favorite tea from anywhere!

    I love the quiet morning for working and blogging too before my kiddos get up – this would be the prefect warm-up, cozy drink for these cold fall mornings!

    I love tea and apple cider (and of course caramel). This sounds like a totally amazing combination of a bunch of already great flavors. I’m gonna have to give it a try!
