Thirsty Thursday: Crazy for Chai: Pumpkin Spice and Classic Chai

As promised continuing with the fall drink theme this Thirsty Thursday we wanted to share some hot tea drinks for those tea lovers out there. After all, as the weather begins to change and we begin to feel a slight chill in the air there is nothing like sitting down to relax with your favorite comforting cup of hot tea. Chai is a great a fall favorite with its warm spice and earthy sweet undertones. For those who love pumpkin, add in a little pumpkin spice and your taste buds will love you. We are sharing both a caffeinated and decaffeinated option so to enjoy it any time of day.  Tazo's chai pumpkin spice tea (we found at target) was our inspiration  for the Pumpkin Spice Chai tea and Numi's Rooibos chai (found at a natural food store) was our inspiration for the Classic Chai tea. 

Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea 

1 Tazo chai tea bag (pumpkin spice if possible)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tbs local honey
1/4th cup (unsweetened almond milk, or whole milk)

1- Steep tea bag in 8oz of hot water for 5 minutes
2- Place tea and other ingredients in a blender and blend until combined
3- Enjoy!

Rooibos Classic Chai Tea 
 caffeine, sugar, and dairy free

1 Numi organic chai tea bag
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk
2 Sweet Leaf stevia tabs ( These new tabs are a portable convenient way to sweeten naturally)

1- Steep tea bag in 8 oz of hot water for 5 minutes
2- Add in milk of choice and stevia
3-Stir and enjoy!
