David Rio Red Panda Pumpkin Chai

You may have pumpkin coming out of your ears by this time of the year, but hear me out.While pumpkin season is in full swing, give David Rio Red Panda Pumpkin Chai a try.  Like its charming namesake creature, Red Panda Chai will change the way you feel about pumpkins.

This lighter blend of spices and pumpkin is a great way to savor the onset of autumn.  On the spectrum of sweet to spicy, this chai blend sits cozily in the middle.  Milder in sweetness than many flavored chai mixes available, the Red Panda Chai is sweetened primarily with cane sugar and honey.  Its natural pumpkin flavor backs up the black tea nicely, making it a distinct chai beverage rather than a holiday confection.  Coconut oil smooths the flavors together and make it possible to get a creamy drink with just the addition of hot water.  Rounding out the finish is a soft bite of ground cinnamon with a tease of cardamom and ginger.  This chai does not have the teeth of a spicier traditional chai tea, but is favorable for fans of tea latte.

David Rio products are beneficial to baristas because they are easy to prepare and have an extended shelf life.  It pairs well with warm milk, but can also be made lactose-free with alternative milks.  Adjusting for your taste preference, only one ounce (or about two tablespoons) of Red Panda Chai is needed for an 8 ounce beverage.  This product is also free of GMO, which goes hand-in-hand with the company’s environmental cause.  Keeping with philanthropic efforts of the Endangered Species Chai LineRed Panda Chai is named for the playful creature whose population has been reduced to less than 10,000 due to poaching and threat to habitation.

Like the endangered red panda, this limited edition chai is numbered in quantity.  Luckily, this pumpkin chai mixes smoothly with hot or cold liquid, so stash some Red Panda Chai for rainy days ahead.
