How to Make the Best Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte
The star of the show for this pumpkin tea latte is the TAZO Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte. This chai lovers dream is a warm blend of pumpkin pie spices and black tea concentrate. Its full list of ingredients includes water, black tea, black pepper, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, star anise, cane sugar syrup, honey, ginger juice, natural flavors, and citric acid.
You can either find TAZO Pumpkin Spice Latte black tea concentrate at your local grocery stores or online here: TAZO pumpkin spice.
This pumpkin spice chai tea latte is made with three simple ingredients:
- 4oz – TAZO pumpkin chai latte blend
- 1oz – maple syrup
- 2-4oz milk of your choice
First, give the TAZO pumpkin spice concentrate a quick shake and add to a glass. Add the maple syrup to the smooth black tea concentrate.
Heat the maple syrup and black tea on the stove over medium heat in a small saucepan. To make things easier you can even it n the microwave if you’d like. Then set aside.
Heating Milk for a Warm Latte
Place your milk of choice in a small saucepan or a frothing pitcher and heat on the stove. You want to warm your milk but do not let it boil. We are using whole milk, but if you prefer a non dairy milk you can opt for almond milk, coconut milk, or oat milk. The type of milk you choose is up to you.
Next, use a frothing wand to froth your warm milk. You can find the one pictured online here: frothing wand.
Your delicious drink is almost ready! How simple is this?
Carefully pour the frothed milk into the pumpkin spice latte.
When the mug is almost full go ahead and add the foam. Sprinkle with pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon and nutmeg for that ultimate fall flavor.
This Tazo Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte Recipe is better than anything you’d find in even the best coffee shops. When there’s a slight chill in the air the warm spices mixed with real pumpkin flavor make you want to cuddle up in a chunky sweater with a good book. This will be your new fall favorite for chilly days.
TAZO Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte Variations
The best part of homemade tea lattes is the ability to make changes and try different things. That along with the fact that making them at home is a fraction of the cost of getting them at any chain coffee shop. A great way to spice up a regular chai latte is to try different variations. Here are a few options:
- If you prefer a non dairy milk you can opt for almond milk, coconut milk, or oat milk. The type of milk you choose is up to you.
- Feel free to get fancy and top your TAZO pumpkin spice chai tea latte with whipped cream and pumpkin sauce.
- Mix things up and try equal parts black tea concentrate to milk.
Yes, you sure can! Pour over ice and make yourself an iced pumpkin spice latte.
Caffeine levels may vary with individual preparation methods. But this pumpkin-spiced chai latte will have around 46-60mg of caffeine.
I have not tried using the chai tea bags so I, unfortunately, do not have an answer to this question, as of yet.
This particular pumpkin spice chai latte recipe doe not require you to add any water to it.
If you feel the concentrate is sweet enough without it, then of course you may skip the maple syrup. This comes down to personal preference.
