Labor Day weekend ushers out summer and welcomes in autumn and seasonal treats like pumpkin spice lattes. I make my own delicious iced latte by combining a strong half cup of brewed pumpkin spice herbal tea with brewed hazelnut Teeccino, almond milk, and lots of ice. (Sweeten to taste.) It's creamy with a lovely finish from the nutmeg.
Teeccino is a caffeine-free herbal coffee alternative. It's brewed the same way you'd make ground coffee, and it has real coffee flavor.
I also make an aromatic hot version by sprinkling dried pumpkin pie spice on top of the dry Teeccino grounds right before I start brewing a pot. The Teeccino is really good on its own so the added hint of autumn flavor is all that's needed. This harvest time treat is so good--the smell alone makes green leaves start turning red and orange.We do experience a subtle change of season here in northern Florida, but it's enjoying autumn treats like pumpkin spice lattes that help mark the season.
