    Tried this thinking I had pumpkin chai tea at home but sadly didn’t. So I made it with the coco chai rooibos tea and almond milk instead of coconut. It was delicious!

    • DAVIDsTEA August 31, 2015 at 7:53 pm #

      Ooooooh, such a great idea! We’ll have to try that too.

  2. Katrina August 30, 2015 at 10:11 pm #

    Mmmm, must try with almond milk!

    Mmmm, this sounds delicious. I am curious, how many servings does this make?

    • DAVIDsTEA September 3, 2015 at 3:46 pm #

      Hey Jen! This recipe will yield 1 or 2 lattes, depending on the size of the cups 😉

  4. Amanda September 4, 2015 at 2:47 pm #

    It tastes like pumpkin pie in a cup 🙂

  5. Ally September 6, 2015 at 3:34 am #

    Delicious! Made this with two spoonfuls of pumpkin chai just to be extra spicy and it turned out wonderfully both times I made it. 🙂

  6. Daniel September 7, 2015 at 3:07 am #

    Made this, WAY to sweet. Unbearable. 2 tablespoons of sugar AND a tablespoon of maple syrup?? there must be a typo

    • DAVIDsTEA September 8, 2015 at 4:01 pm #

      Hey Daniel! It’s definitely on the sweeter side – maybe more of an indulgence than a daily drink. That said, you can cut the sugar/maple syrup quantities in half and still get very tasty results.

    I made this with canned coconut milk, thinking that is what you were calling out. It was still really good, but very very thick and creamy. It wasn’t until after that I realized you are probably calling out the coconut milk in a carton, not a can. I will try that next.

    Exactly which type of coconut milk are you calling out? Canned or carton?

    • DAVIDsTEA September 8, 2015 at 4:06 pm #

      Hey Tara! We used canned coconut milk, but either should work 🙂

      • Sarah October 22, 2015 at 1:31 pm #

        Ususally the stuff in the carton is thinner, not thicker, FYI.

  8. Nat September 9, 2015 at 11:35 pm #

    Hi- I am looking for the pumpkin spiced latte recipe that is on the back of your Fall 2016 pamphlet- would you happen to know where I could find it?

    • DAVIDsTEA September 13, 2015 at 10:43 pm #

      Hey Nat! You can find the recipe here.

  9. Betty September 19, 2015 at 2:46 pm #

    Yummm-eeeeee. I made it with canned coconut milk as well but only because the grocery store doesn’t have it in cartons. Mine wasn’t that nice yellowy orange colour in the picture…it was more of a brown colour. It was messy to strain and I made quite a mess. I found a gadget this morning when I went out shopping called a “Silpoura”. It’s made of silpat and attaches to any pot or bowl so you can strain and pour easily…apparently. You can detach the strainer piece and pour cake batters, etc. Will be trying it tonight to see if it really works.

  10. Karen September 28, 2015 at 8:13 pm #

    I was wondering what are the best strainers? I haven’t attempted lattes before but I want to with the cold weather months arriving.

    • DAVIDsTEA September 29, 2015 at 12:59 pm #

      Hey Karen! A regular kitchen strainer works great 🙂

  11. Helene September 29, 2015 at 9:50 pm #

    Took a canister to college when visiting her this past weekend and it was a big hit! Apparently they shared with her entire floor and now they are all hooked 🙂

    • Helene September 29, 2015 at 9:51 pm #

      Meant to mention (her) meaning my daughter.

  12. Trish October 3, 2015 at 6:01 pm #

    Made this this morning but it looks like swamp water… Did I do something wrong?

    • DAVIDsTEA October 6, 2015 at 1:20 pm #

      Like our old tea named Swampwater or actual swamp water? More importantly though, how did it taste?

  13. Alison October 4, 2015 at 5:15 pm #

    The Pumpkin Chai tea has caramel & pumpkin candies in the ingredients list. Are these items gluten free?

    • DAVIDsTEA October 6, 2015 at 1:17 pm #

      Hi Alison! While there is no gluten in the ingredients, there’s always the possibility of cross-contamination, so we unfortunately can’t certify that Pumpkin Chai is gluten free.

  14. Sav October 6, 2015 at 11:24 pm #

    SO excited to try this!!! What a wonderful idea!

  15. Adryanne October 13, 2015 at 4:31 pm #

    Made these yesterday morning with my sisters as we were home for Thanksgiving. They turned out tasty but a little messy – the straining part was slow and hard to manage without spilling on the counter.

    • DAVIDsTEA October 16, 2015 at 9:14 pm #

      Practice makes perfect! And now there’s an excuse to make it many more times 😀

  16. Melissa October 14, 2015 at 1:14 am #

    I absolutely love this drink (and my husband does too)! I don’t like the taste of coffee and I am lactose-intolerant so it has been difficult to find the right recipe, until now 🙂 Thank you, David’s Tea!!

    • DAVIDsTEA October 16, 2015 at 8:47 pm #

      Cheers, Melissa!

    Hi I have IBS. So I have to be careful of what I eat and drink. This latte was great due to using coconut milk. Do you have more recipes like this one?

    • DAVIDsTEA October 26, 2015 at 9:12 pm #

      Hey Trish! You can definitely substitute regular milk for coconut milk in any recipe. That said, we do have this matcha recipe that calls for coconut milk: http://bit.ly/MatchaCoconutFrappe

  18. Caitlyn October 23, 2015 at 6:40 pm #

    Do you guys serve this in store or no?

    • DAVIDsTEA October 26, 2015 at 8:59 pm #

      Hey Caitlyn! We don’t serve this special latte in-store; it’s something you can whip up at home if you’re feeling adventurous. That said, you can definitely get a Pumpkin Chai latte in-store, while the tea is still in-stock 🙂

  19. Trish October 23, 2015 at 10:00 pm #

    I just made my first Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte…it won’t be my last! Yummers! Thank goodness I just ordered more Pumpkin Chai Tea. If there is any left, I’ll be making them on Christmas morning.

    Please keep these yummy recipes coming!

    • DAVIDsTEA October 26, 2015 at 8:57 pm #

      Glad to hear you enjoyed it, Trish!

  20. katelyn October 28, 2015 at 12:13 am #

    i know that it says to use pumpkin chai but would chai on life work as a replacement because you are using pumpkin puree in it anyway

    • DAVIDsTEA November 6, 2015 at 7:20 pm #

      Hey Katelyn! Feel free to play around with the tea you use. We’re sure Chai on Life would be delish 🙂

  21. Heather March 8, 2016 at 11:11 pm #

    Just made this now… didn’t have pumpkin puree on hand, and added 1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie seasoning…… sooooo gooood. SO GOOD. Perfect for a mid-week treat!

    • DAVIDsTEA March 10, 2016 at 9:37 pm #

      Sounds scrumptious, Heather!

  22. Lauren August 31, 2016 at 12:35 pm #

    OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the best! I cut the recipe in half and it made the perfect amount for my nordic mug. I also skipped the pumpkin puree and added nutmeg instead of ginger and it was amazing!!!!! I didn’t use coconut milk, instead I used unsweetened vanilla cashew milk and it tasted so creamy and good. Just letting you know, obviously, without the pumpkin puree the latte isn’t orange, it’s more the colour of a double-double coffee. Thank you, David’s Tea!!!!!!!!!

  23. Allison October 15, 2016 at 9:08 am #

    You said 1/4 of a can of pumpkin puree, but how big was the can?

    • DAVIDsTEA November 7, 2016 at 3:13 pm #

      It’s a standard-sized can that can be found in any grocery store!

  24. DivaLinda September 19, 2017 at 9:55 am #

    I’ve been brewing up my pumpkin chai in Drink Maple maple water (think coconut water, but it’s maple sap before it is boiled down to syrup). Very nice. I’m going to try upping the luxury with this recipe.
