Add Pumpkin Spice to your lineup of favorite fall teas. It’s new to The Republic of Tea’s expansive line, with a mellow, richly flavored brew (black tea, ginger, nutmeg, etc.) that earned raves from tasters turned off by some tea’s harsh faux flavors. A tin (50 tea bags) is $11.50. At stores nationwide or to buy, go to republicoftea.com.
Up your snack game with crisps from across the pond: Tyrrell’s Hand Cooked English Potato Chips in seven flavors, including Mature Cheddar & Chives and Sweet Chili & Red Pepper, made with Herefordshire-grown veggies. Tasters enjoyed sweet-salty Beetroot, Parsnip & Carrots With Sea Salt, as well as the tangy Worcestershire Sauce & Sundried Tomato. Whimsical images adorn each 5.3-ounce bag. The suggested retail price: $3.99. For a store locater or to buy online, go to tyrrellschips.com.
