    Move aside coffee, as Krisi Smith, Co-Founder & Chief Mixologist Bird & Blend Tea Co., revealed how one of their twists on pumpkin spice can make for the "perfect autumnal spiced tea cuppa."

    In an exclusive chat with Daily Star, the brewing expert said: "If you’re looking for something with less caffeine and more antioxidants, then opting for tea could be a winner for you.

    "But on taste alone, our award-winning Spiced Pumpkin Pie tea blend is perhaps our most popular seasonal chai ever! Tea lovers absolutely love this time of year and turn to cosy, aroma rich blends that reflect the changing weather and seasonal flavours and smells such as pumpkin, cinnamon and cloves."

    Chai tea is a black tea formed by brewing black tea in milk and water before sweetening the liquid with sugar, so it's already flavoursome. Bird and Blend made a seasonal twist on the aromatic tea, the Spiced Pumpkin Pie, which teams the black tea with the cinnamon infused beverage.

    For tea lovers looking for that pumpkin spice taste, Krisi urged to brew between two to four minutes for the best results. And brewing it at the right temperature is important.

    "As it’s a black tea base, you can brew it using 100 degree water," the expert said. "So, one teaspoon of loose leaf tea, add boiling water, wait for it to brew for two to four minutes and enjoy with or without milk. I actually love it with a splash of oat milk!"
