Hello dears! I’m Kait, a Toronto gal who loves everything vintage, handmade, eco-friendly, fashion, tea, photography and am also a firm believer that sandwiches taste better cut diagonally! I blog over at Miss Kait Online. I was thrilled when Megan asked me to do a guest post for her October Blog party as the fall is my favourite time of the year! (October is my
One of my favourite things about fall are all the treats and delicious food that comes with it. The seasonal drinks at Starbucks, especially their Pumpkin Spice Latte, are one of my favourites to indulge in. Today, I’m here to share with you a mock chai tea version! If you’re not a fan of hot drinks, have no fear, you could easily serve this as an iced drink as well.
syrup, if you’re lucky enough to have this in your grocery store!)
♥ Chai Tea (I find loose tea leaves to have more flavour. I
also used a couple of different blends for an extra kick, if you have
pumpkin spice chai it works even better!)
♥ 2 cubes/Tsp Brown sugar
♥ Milk (warmed to room temperature)
♥ 2 Tsp vanilla extract
♥ Pumpkin Spice
♥ Whipped cream
- Steep the tea in a small amount of water
- In a pot, combine the canned pumpkin, tea, sugar, vanilla
extract and a tad of pumpkin spice on low heat and stir. (It’s very
important to not have the heat too high, otherwise you’ll burn the tea
and it won’t taste too nice)
- To foam the milk, you can use either a foamer, frothier, or my
personal favourite a magic bullet! (I actually prefer to use this over
my hand frothier.) Use as much as you’d like in your latte. I heat it
for about 20 seconds just to get it closer to room tempurature and use
the normal blade and blend it for a few seconds.
- Combine, and garnish. I pour the milk in after the tea, top with
foam, and then whipped cream and sprinkle some cinnamon and pumpkin
spice on top. Yum yum!!
