📕 What's pumpkin spice tea?

Pumpkin pie spiceis a popular spice blend in North America that has taken over the world by storm. Originally, this zesty spice blend was used to season pumpkin pie, hency why the name.

Today, pumpkin pie spice has been used to season a full range of autumnal sweet foods.

I created the pumpkin spice tea as I was intending to make a cupof Indian masala chai.

Instead, I got inspired and came up with the pumpkin spice tea.

Besides spices, the hot fall beverage also includes black tea leaves, milk, and sugar. So, the pumpkin spice tea is essentially a chai variation.

By the way, did you know that chai means tea? Hence why writingpumpkin spice chai tea would mean pumpkin spice tea tea.😄

☕ Ingredients

  • Milk – I use whole milk, but you can use low-fat milk too. Whole milk works great because the higher fat quantities in the milk help to extract the spices faster.
  • Water
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend – I used my homemade pumpkin pie spice blend recipe, or you can use store-bought pumpkin spice. Eventually, you can also use thepumpkin pie spice ingredients individually to prepare the milk tea. Using the pumpkin spice blend is quicker.
  • Black Tea Leaves – Indian loose tea leaves, or you can break open a tea bag with black tea and use that too. Another option is to prepare the tea as per instruction without adding tea leaves and to add a tea bag only at the end when serving up the tea to the cup.
  • Sugar – optional, but a small quantity elevates your tea experience.

The pumpkin pie spice blend contains ground cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and allspice.

🔪 How to make it?

You will need at most 5 minutes to prepare the pumpkin spice tea if you use the pumpkin pie spice blend.

The spice blend is cooked with the tea leaves in milk and water over the stove-top so that the milk tea takes in the aromatic flavors.

💭 FAQs

Can I use alternative milks to make this pumpkin spice flavored milk tea?

Yes, you have the option to switch the cow milk with almond milk or coconut milk,

This homemade tea is milky and tastes like a burst of fall flavors. Lightly spiced with warm autumn spices such as cinnamon and ginger, it lends the drink comforting flavors reminiscent of Indian masala chai.

Can I make this tea caffeine free?

Yes, you can make your chai pumpkin spice tea caffeine-free by switching regular tea leaves with loose decaf tea.

💚 Sustainable Black Tea

For black tea leaves, I recommend using Indian tea-leaf granules, which are dry crushed leaves.

Pick something like loose CTC Black Assam tea leaves or Darjeelingtea leaves. CTC means crush, tear, and curl. These CTC granules are suitable for preparing milk tea, and this is what they use in India to make Masala Chai.

Look out for USDA-certified organic, Fairtrade premium black tea leaves.

I recommend a Premium Assam Black tea from Vahdam. The teas have all the certifications, are high in quality and taste, and they are suitable for milk teas.

The fair trade aspect is significant. These women and men in India's North East work for almost nothing in the tea gardens.

Tea leave plantations are owned by massive corporations, and the people there barely get paid enough to live a dignified life.

Things haven't really improved after the British left. However, as a consumer, you can make the right choice by buying only fair trade products.

These products have a visible international well-known certification on them. Fairtrade products improve social and environmental standards.

They cost a bit more, but you can actively choose to work towards a more sustainable world.
