Sweetened with Sugars

Whether they’re used directly in a beverage, or sprinkled atop some whipped cream, our naturally-flavored sugars give your beverage a gourmet touch.

Start by choosing a tea base such as Black Chocolate, Golden Monkey, International Breakfast, Earl Grey, or your preferred tea. Then add one of our fall sugars:

Salted Caramel Sugar
Mix this naturally flavored sugar with walnuts or pecans, and sprinkle it on ice cream or baked goods. It’s also delicious on popcorn and in hot drinks! This sugar contains turbinado sugar, sea salt, and a caramel natural flavor blend. Using this sugar: Warm Mulled Cider Float

Apple Cinnamon Crisp
Sharp cinnamon and the tart sweetness of apples meld perfectly for this delicious sugar. Brimming with the flavors and aromas of apple crisp, it makes a great topper for peach or apple crisp/pie, buttered toast, oatmeal, and appletinis!

Bourbon Black Walnut Sugar
If you’re a fan of hazelnut or pecan flavors in your coffee and tea, this sugar will be the go-to for you! Made with bourbon and black walnut extracts, it has the comforting taste of old-fashioned maple walnut ice cream. This rich sugar is perfect on cakes/desserts, for flavoring whipped cream, and for rimming drinks.

A Touch of Spice

A little bit of spice can go a long way! Try adding these warm spices to your coffee or tea to capture the essence of fall:

Maple Syrup Granules
Our Maple Syrup Granules have similar properties to honey, which makes them a perfect pairing for hot beverages! Add honey granules to desserts, fruit salads, yogurt parfaits, or simply sprinkle on ice cream. In a beverage, the granules will melt and blend to add a sweet touch of flavor.

Ground & Whole Nutmeg
Using a grater, grate fresh nutmeg onto the top of your beverage for a gourmet look! Ground nutmeg can be sprinkled directly into your beverage, or on top.

Cinnamon
Cinnamon comes in many varieties, including True Ceylon and Korintje. Choose to use cinnamon sticks or ground cinnamon in your beverages to add a touch of spice. Place one cinnamon stick in each beverage to give it a touch of decorative flair- and flavor!

These classics can add depth and unique character to your most basic beverages! See these spices and more at spiceandtea.com.
