We love seasonal specialty items from the grocery store, especially when those products come from New England.

Bigelow Tea Company, out of Fairfield, Conn., has created two stellar, autumn-inspired black teas: Cranberry Harvest and Pumpkin Spice. Just the names alone evoke feelings of cool, crisp days and long and winding rides through the autumn colors. Additionally, the Cranberry Harvest and Pumpkin Spice teas further align with the time of the season as New England yields peak cranberry harvest through September while pumpkins increasingly saturate the beautiful, local landscapes.

These two teas, however, more than pique the imagination and awaken beloved regional imageries in our minds. Both products yield fabulous tastes -- reflecting accurately their product names while adding the right mix of compatible spices to the blends.

I wish Bigelow offered these products year-round but that would be like desiring fall colors throughout the four seasons. The takeaway in our New England hearts and minds, however, says that good things come to those who wait. As autumn in New England arrives, so do all the things we love about the season. Adding these Cranberry Harvest and Pumpkin Spice teas certainly complements enjoying the precious moments during the most wonderful time of the year.

Editor's note: I have purchased these teas at Stop & Shop Market. Check with your local grocer in New England for product availability!
