OctoBrew Thursday: Sleepy Hollow’s Pumpkin Chai Tea

OctoBrew Thursday Banner

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the newest edition of OctoBrew Thursday. Today we are making an autumnal drink that is sweet, spicy, and smooth.

pumpkin chai

Inspired by one of my favorite Gothic short stories, and of course Tim Burton’s film adaptation of Sleepy Hollow, this simple cup of pumpkin chai tea will warm you up on those perfect foggy autumn days. It will give you the perfect boost to escape the wrath of the headless horseman that fills the pages of Washington Irving’s story and Tim Burton’s richly altered and terrifying movie.


  • Water
  • Chai tea bags
  • Your favorite pumpkin creamer or pumpkin syrup


  • Make a cup of your favorite chai tea by adding boiled water to a mug, pouring the hot water over the chai teabags, and then letting it steep for 4-5 minutes or to your desired strength. 
  • Then add and stir a few splashes of pumpkin creamer.


Happy October!
