Maple Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte

September 25, 2020

Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte

So it's that time of year. The time of year you crave anything pumpkin - pumpkin spice bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin ice cream (yes it does exist, and yes, it is yummy!) and of course the favorite... pumpkin spice chai tea latte. Why this isn't a year-round "thing" I have no idea, but with this recipe, you can now decide when Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea latte season is (instead of the coffee shop on the corner having all the control).

As I looked high and low for a delicious recipe to share with you, I found it was quite an undertaking for a simple cup of deliciousness. A few key issues I was looking for: 

  • A nice, warm pumpkin-spiced chai tea latte
  • A latte that doesn't have a gazillion calories per cup
  • A recipe I can whip up and enjoy in the morning (and not require prep until noon before I can drink it)

Now if you're truly looking for a recipe that has a thick, richness to it from pumpkin pureé so that it almost becomes a meal in itself, then by all means, put on your apron and go for it.

For me, I just want a delicious cup of tea, with pumpkin spices and a bit of sweetness, and top it off with some creaminess. 

How to make "my" perfect Maple Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte

Servings: 1 serving - 12 ounces
Double the recipe to share with a friend (also keeps them from nabbing yours).


Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups milk (whole milk, low-fat, non-fat, almond, coconut)
  • 1-2 T Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea 
    (For stronger flavor, use less milk or add more tea to the steep.)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 - 2 T pure maple syrup (added for sweetness, adjust to taste)
  • Dash of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice

Instructions

  • Choose your dairy: milk, almond milk or coconut milk to achieve the flavor, calorie, and nutrition content you prefer. (Each are delicious in their own way.)
  • Heat milk in a saucepan until steaming.
  • Stir in the Pumpkin Spice Chai tea into pot and steep 5-7 minutes.
  • Strain the tea into your cup.
  • Blend in the vanilla extract and maple syrup.
  • Froth up a little more dairy with a hand frother to desired creaminess. (Seriously, if you don't have one, you need one of these!) 

milk frother

  • Spoon milk froth over the top of your tea to taste. 
  • Lightly dust with ground cinnamon, nutmeg, star anise, or allspice.
  • For a little more sweetness, drizzle a bit more maple syrup over the top.
  • Enjoy!

Chai Green Tea Latte

There's just something soothing about how a spiced chai latte tastes on a cold day...or any day if you're like meI love chai spices - the cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves...and all chai teas for that matter. But green tea blended with chai spices in this Green Chai Tea Latte recipe is just delicious with the earthiness of green tea contrasted by the chai spices in a frothy cup. It works.

Hi R - We shipped out your order the same day as you ordered it. We apologize for the delayed delivery by the USPS. The USPS is experiencing pandemic delays.

Masala Chai
Hi Mary Lou, We're disappointed you weren't thrilled with our Masala Chai. It has very similar ingredients to Oprah Chai, but if you are looking for more cinnamon and a bit more sweetness, you should try our Maharaja Chai Oolong. While it is an Oolong tea instead of a black tea, it does have a higher caffeine level like a black tea, and it has all the other ingredients of the Oprah Chai: Spicy Cinnamon, Ginger, Cocoa Nibs, Black Peppercorn, Chicory, Cardamom, Cloves. The Masala Chai does not have the cocoa nibs that give it the sweetness I think you may be missing. We will send you a sample!
Not quite
Hi Jerry - If you're looking for more of a chai flavor, try blending the White Ayurvedic Chai with our Samurai Spirit Chai Maté - a very popular blend! (https://tealeavz.com/products/samurai-chai-mate)
