Everyone, including myself, loves a pumpkin spiced latte (#PSL10). Who doesn’t love them? They are a delicious treat and perfect for autumn. This little taste of db8acaf139a8a961c30e1d2377261a0fheaven warms your heart, hands, and dare I say it–your soul. I get it sometimes you don’t want the coffee taste, the espresso flavor or just down right the caffeine (and honestly, who wants to go decaf?)

Attention, tea drinkers across the nation, rejoice! You can now get your pumpkin fix and jump aboard the pumpkin spice latte train. A drink with a beautiful Pumpkin Spice Base  will be exactly what you are searching for this autumn season.

Personally the best part about this little treat is you can make it at home, or you can find one at your local coffee shop. It may not be on the menu–but order it! I promise they will not laugh at you!

Opposed from making it at home, I will head down to Ebenezers for a Pumpkin Spiced Chai Latte and it is the most glorious thing known to touch my lips. I do not know what they put in this little cup, but it is pure joy. Honest, it is a little taste of heaven and totally perfect. If I could live at Ebenezers and drink this all day year long, you better believe I would.  Maybe I am the biggest advocate for Ebenezers, which I am okay with, but let me tell you, if you are living in the city and have yet to try this bundle of joy, I advise you to. You will not be disappointed. You can find Ebenezers Coffehouse at 201 F St NE. Come on by, I am sure I will see you there.

Whenever the craving strikes pick up that sweet pumpkiny cup of chai.

Ladies and Gentleman, it is finally back! The Pumpkin Spice Latte has arrived. And even better, Starbucks is celebrating the Pumpkin Spice Latte’s 10-year anniversary! There is nothing better about the enjoyment of the crisp weather, and a PSL. As DC is still 86, sunny, and not a cloud in the sky–I settled and enjoyed a PSL yesterday. Don’t worry ya’ll, it was iced. That first sip of the PSL was the most heavenly thing I have tasted in a while, or…dare I say ever?

Guys, did you know that the PLS ALMOST wasn’t invited?

pumpkin-spice-latte-sign-785463Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte, the drink that heralds the arrival of fall for its many fans, almost never happened.
Ten years ago, when Starbucks’ espresso wizards were brewing up new seasonal drink ideas for fall, they came up with a list of 20 finalists and market tested them. The pumpkin concept was initially greeted with a “meh,” falling somewhere in the middle of the pack, outshined by stars such as chocolate caramel or cinnamon spice.
But Starbucks’ product developers saw potential.
“It wasn’t the natural winner, but there was something there,” said Peter Dukes, espresso brand manager for Starbucks, who was on the original team that developed the drink. (check out the rest of the article)

Here I sit a true advocate of everything pumpkin, fall, and harvest. I truly love this season, and if it could be autumn all year round, I would not hate that. Anyone know where I should move, or where the climate is perfect crisp, and fall all seasons? As harvest season is upon is, it is true the PSL is back, and maybe it’s unconventional to enjoy something pumpkin or harvest this early in the season. Unconventional or not, I will be enjoying many flavors of the harvest before they leave.

Go ahead and let out a little #PSL yell–I know you want to. Go grab one, sip slow and enjoy.
