Witch's Brew with Pumpkin Spice TeaAuthor: Layla Osberg

Each year we anticipate the arrival of Murchie’s Pumpkin Spice Tea in the shop and there’s nothing better than the first sight of the rows of cheerful boxes on the shelves decorated in bright orange gourds. It’s a sign that fall is officially here and the holidays are soon to follow.

While we’ll be carving pumpkins for Halloween, we thought it’d be festive to serve something to sip on while we’re at it! This recipe for Witch’s Brew is made with our Pumpkin Spice Tea, spices and prune juice which gives the brew a delightfully ghoulish deep black colour. It’s positively spooky how yummy this is!
