Sounds delicious! Canned pumpkin is listed in the ingredients, but doesn’t say when to add it in recipe.
Hi Kia, the pumpkin is listed in step two of the instructions along with the pumpkin spice. ENJOY!
When does can pumpkin go in? And how much is T?
Hi Rick, the pumpkin goes in the second step of the recipe. The T = Tablespoon, and tsp. = teaspoon. ENJOY!
Hi, I’m ready to try this tea but was wondering what the star is floating in the picture. I have an idea but I’m not 100 0/0 sure.
Hi Terri it is a star anise used by the Chinese. It plays a key role in the slow cooked dishes that characterize Eastern Chinese cuisine, and it has a licorice flavor. Happy Crocking!
Forgive me if this is a silly question. What makes it “chai?”
Hi Molly… no silly questions here! Black tea is the main ingredient that makes it “Chai” ENJOY!
I really hate being this person, but actually, a “Chai” tea comes from the specific chai spices that are blended together. Not every black tea is a Chai, just like not every black tea is an Earl Grey.
You could call this recipe a variant on a pumpkin tea latte, but it definitely not a chai tea.
I have sweetened Vanilla Almond Milk at home – I am going to use that, do you think it would be OK? And if I do.. do you think I could skip the vanilla extract, do you think it would be too much?
Michelle, I would skip the vanilla extract with the vanilla almond milk, you an always add a little in a the end, if you feel it needs it. Thank you for the question and Happy Crocking!
Super excited to try this out. If its as good as it sounds I’ll be serving it for thanksgiving. Thanks!
I made this today and it was Delicious!! Thank you!
