Move Over, Pumpkin

A buffet of chai-spiced flavors to get you in the mood for fall


This time of year, the world goes mad for pumpkin. It’s everywhere you look, from your local coffee shops and bakeries, to every supermarket, gas station and drug store. (Pumpkin scented hand lotion, anyone?)

For those of you who like all those warm winter spices but can do without the side of cucurbit, here’s an idea. Avoid the pumpkin and opt for chai-infused things instead. You get all those lovely notes of cinnamon, ginger and clove, without even a hint of that orange puree. Here are five products that hit the chai nail on the head. MORE
