With everyone in a frenzy about pumpkin spice lattes and what-have-you, I thought I’d reblog this oldie but goody for those of you who, like me, aren’t particularly into the pumpkin beverage obsession.

I admitted a while back that I much prefer chai anything over pumpkin spiced this-and-that. That’s just how it is. Judge away. I usually keep this little tidbit to myself for the most part {like it’s controversial or something} because you Pumpkin Spice nuts are a crazy lot when it comes to defending the PSL.

Call me crazy, but chai is also full of warm, spicy goodness. It even shares some of the same flavors as the illustrious pumpkin spice — cinnamon & ginger, to be exact. For whatever reason, it makes my taste buds happy and makes me think of fall as much as the “other” spice blend.

This chai tea is even more scrumptious thanks to the healthy dose of creamy white chocolate that melts away into the hot beverage. So good.

Now that summer has passed and everyone seems to be in a fall-minded mode, there’s no better time to bust out this simple beverage and “spice” things up. Don’t worry, pumpkin will have it’s turn, too.
