What is the hype behind the pumpkin spice latte?
With everyone falling in love with the autumn vibes around, we crave food and beverages that are deliciously sweet with a touch of spice. The go-to drinks of the season often include spices such as ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom.
It is nearly impossible to not indulge in pumpkin flavored drinks. The mixture of the fall spices with pumpkin, tastes like fall and often lifts our mood. The association of fall flavors can bring happy thoughts and moments you have experienced during the autumn season in the past. Pumpkin spice latte beverages have become increasingly more popular each fall because of the childhood nostalgia we connect it to, such as eating pumpkin pie with your family.
Tea India's favorite fall drink is a homemade pumpkin spice chai latte.
