We always hear about the Pumpkin Spice Lattes at the various coffee shops this time of year. This recipe is for the pumpkin spice appreciators who drink tea. While it is recommended to use Celestial Seasonings Sweet Harvest Pumpkin Tea, if you have a different brand in mind with a pumpkin flavor, go ahead and give it a try. Enjoy the Pumpkin Spice "La Tea" version by following the instructions below.
- 2-3 bags Celestial Seasonings Sweet Harvest Pumpkin Tea
- 1 cup milk
- Pinch cinnamon
If you have an espresso machine: Clean your machine’s coffee basket thoroughly. Cut open 3 tea bags, pour tea into basket and compress as if it were coffee. Brew a single “shot” and pour into coffee mug. Steam milk using wand and pour over brewed tea. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
Without espresso machine: In a medium saucepan, gently heat milk over low heat until very warm but not boiling. Add 2 tea bags and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat, remove tea bags. Using a whisk, beat milk until it foams. Pour into coffee mug and sprinkle with cinnamon.
