It’s that time of the year where the leaves on ancient and youthful trees lose their leaves; the days grow shorter, and the weather becomes colder. What is the word that represents the change from hot days to colder days? It is a three letter word that is a synonym for autumn. That’s right, fall. Fall is a three letter word that symbolizes the changing of the leaves, the shortening of days, and the continuous rising of people purchasing hot drinks. Now, those could be coffee, hot chocolate, or tea, etc. We all have our differences, and that is the best thing about truly us.

Indian chai is a spiced milk tea drink that is sweet and slightly spicy and is made up of milk, a combination of spices, black tea, and either honey or sugar. The spices vary depending on which region in India you visit, but the typical spices are cardamom, cinnamon, pepper, ginger, and cloves.
In the early 18th century, the British East India Company used their power to cultivate tea in India with the Assamese plant. They began promoting the English way of drinking by mixing a small amount of milk and sugar in the tea. At the beginning of the India Tea Association, they originally condemned the use of adding spices, extra milk, and extra sugar, which reduced the amount of tea in one’s cup.

Over 5,000 years ago in southern China, the emperor was sipping a cup of hot water. He was exhausted after a long day of traveling and needed a pick-me-up. As he began staring off into the distance, a few green tea leaves floated into his cup. The emperor took a sip before he realized that his water was turning a dark green color. He was livid to discover the leaves gave him more energy. Shortly after, he ordered every single one of his soldiers to drink multiple cups of divine concoction. Back before sterilization of water, people drank tea for medicinal purposes and as a suitable replacement for plain water full of bacteria.

Pumpkin spice is a craze that sweeps America every fall. Trader Joe’s started offering pumpkin products in the 1990s, and Starbucks started selling the limited edition Pumpkin Spice Latte back in 2003. But what makes pumpkin spice? A pumpkin spice is a mixture of cinnamon, clove, ginger, nutmeg, and sometimes actual pumpkin. Any company that comes up with a great idea involving pumpkin spice and slap the label of “limited edition” on every product produced, you now have the perfect marketing plan for selling your entire inventory.
This recipe is fairly simple. I am using the Trader Joe's Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte Mix, but you can use any mix you have on hand.
- Three tbsp Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte Mix
Boil 6 oz. of water.
2) Pour the boiling water into a teacup or mug.
3) Add the chai tea mix to the water.
