Pumpkin Spice Tea Latte
Visiting the Bigelow Tea family business in Connecticut and learning about how much they care about the quality of their tea forever changed the way I think about tea and the purchases I make. Bigelow Tea is a three generation family owned business that started with just one variety. They care about the quality of their tea passionately and seeing this first hand while learning about the many different classic varieties was astounding. Holidays are a favorite time for them because it’s when the seasonal varieties make their way to homes for making memories with loved ones. Bigelow Tea Pumpkin Spice (seasonal) from Walmart is a fall favorite and was the perfect start to my pumpkin spice tea latte with chocolate dipped cinnamon stir sticks this week.
Fall in Arizona very much lacks in the obvious seasonal changes. But that doesn’t stop us from soaking up all the pumpkin and cinnamon goodness the day we roll into October. Is it still hot outside? Yes. Are flip flops still the most appropriate footwear? Yes. Is an afternoon in a non heated pool still the most refreshing way to spend a weekend? Yes. Add in some warm pumpkin spice drinks or the sweet smell of cinnamon and suddenly all those other things from summer seem long gone. We’re sipping pumpkin spice tea lattes and counting the days until it’s actually cool enough to not look silly wearing boots and scarves to the neighborhood park.
Tea proudly is Bigelow sharing everything they are proud of that gives their customers the reassurance they are making the right choice and are in the know. Click on the image below for details on purchasing the Bigelow Tea Pumpkin Spice (seasonal).
Pumpkin Spice Tea Latte with Chocolate Dipped Cinnamon Stir Sticks
- Bigelow Tea Pumpkin Spice (seasonal)
- 1 C cream
- cinnamon sticks
- 1 C white chocolate chips
- pumpkin pie spice
Steep tea in 1/2 C hot water in your favorite fall mug.
While tea is steeping, melt chocolate chips in double boiler.
Chocolate melting alternative: melt chips in the microwave as an alternative to using a double boiler. Heat for 30 second intervals stirring in between until chips are fully melted.
Pour melted chocolate chips in small bowl and place cinnamon sticks upright in chocolate.
After tea is done steeping to your preferred taste, fill mug with warm cream. Top with whipped topping and sprinkled pumpkin pie spice. Garnish with a chocolate cinnamon stir stick with chocolate upright. Cinnamon sticks can be used to stir pumpkin spice tea latte for an added chocolate flavor.
Serving tip: If you’re sharing pumpkin spice tea lattes with a group, take cinnamon stir sticks directly out of chocolate bowl and serve in drinks. If you’re drinking this beauty solo, place those extra cinnamon sticks on wax paper and save in the refrigerator for the next day.
As a longtime fan of Bigelow Tea, we have a great variety in our pantry at home. When I shop at Walmart I always stop by the coffee and tea aisle to see which seasonal tea varieties are available. This fall our pantry is stocked with a few different Bigelow Tea seasonal flavors including Salted Caramel, Pumpkin Spice and Toasted Coconut Almond Bark.
