Pumpkin pie spice is a popular spice blend in North America, and it has taken the world by storm. This spice blend contains cinnamon, ginger powder, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, ground allspice, and occasionally some black pepper. All of these spices boast incredibly health benefits and flavor, which really brings this tea to life. The pumpkin pie flavor is very forward in this variation of a classic chai tea, which contains similar spices.

We know what you’re going to ask so we have the answer ready. The reason you cannot drink this tea during a Dherbs cleanse is because it uses black tea. As you know, you cannot consume caffeinated beverages during the cleanse. For this recipe, you also don’t have to make your own almond milk. You can can use a store bought variety, but make sure that there are no added sweeteners. You can also use oat milk if you prefer.
