Discover How To Make A Pumpkin Spiced Latte
If you can’t get to your favorite cafe to have a Pumpkin Spice Latte, we have some good news! Making your own at home has never been simpler with Birchall’s version of this coffee shop classic.
Our beloved Birchall Virguna Chai Tea is an autumnal fan favorite to create a Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte. Our Virunga Chai is a powerful interpretation of a classic Indian tea – it infuses the brightness and vitality of a supreme African black tea, grown close to Virunga National Park, with an eclectic blend of herbs and spices. Birchall’s pursuit of quality ensures we have expertly matched our exceptional broken black tea with the subtle sweet spices of cinnamon and cardamom and the warming flavours of ginger and red rooibos from South Africa.
Pumpkin spice with Birchall’s Chai are two flavors in one winning combination that delights and comforts as the colder, cosier months set it.
Here’s how to make one spicy, frothy Birchall Pumpkin Spice Latte at home:
INGREDIENTS (single cup)
- 1 Birchall Virunga Chai Prism Tea Bag
- 100ml whole milk or a milk alternative
- 20ml Pumpkin Spice syrup
- 50ml freshly boiled water
- Whipped cream (optional)
- Cinnamon (optional)
Infuse Birchall’s Virunga Chai Prism Tea bag for 3 minutes in boiling water. Add the Pumpkin Spice Syrup. Add the hot, steamed milk. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon dusting.
Please remember to dispose of your Birchall Prism™ Tea Bag via a food recycling bin as Birchall tea bags are 100% biodegradable – containing zero plastic. Find out more here.
What types of milk can I use for a Pumpkin Spiced Latte?
Whole milk works best to get a frothy latte, but you can still use other alternatives. semi-skimmed milk will still get nice and frothy but simply won’t taste as creamy as whole milk.
For a vegan Pumpkin Spiced Latte we recommend almond or oat milk. They will both foam up well, but might take a little longer than whole milk would.
Can I make my own pumpkin spice?
Absolutely! Pumpkin spice is a combination of all the classic warm spices often present in pumpkin pie. If you do want to use spices in your Birchall Pumpkin Spiced Latte instead of the pumpkin syrup, you may want to heat up the spices in a pan with milk (or a milk alternative). Stirring it on a medium heat will ensure the spices blend perfectly for maximum flavour.
If there’s a particular spice you aren’t a huge fan of, then you can leave it out or reduce the amount! It’s your spice spice mix now:
INGREDIENTS (2 cups)
- 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
- 1/2 tsp. ground allspice
The unique result is a vibrant and uplifting, healthier blend that will soothe and satisfy throughout the day.
