The pumpkin spice latte has become synonymous with autumn. But for those who do not enjoy the taste of coffee or are sensitive to the effects of caffeine, there is no need to miss out on the fall spirit. Seasonal tea lattes are a healthful and flavorful alternative to traditional espresso-based beverages, such as the pumpkin spice latte.

Creating an autumn tea latte is easy, and no special equipment is required. Simply select your favorite seasonal tea featuring flavors such as pumpkin, apple, caramel or cinnamon, and steep according to package directions. A splash of warm milk, a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice will transform your tea into a festive fall latte.

Celebrate the arrival of autumn with these warm, earthy, spicy-sweet tea latte recipes:

(Note: All recipes makes 4 six-ounce servings. Feel free to adjust ingredients and amounts to taste)

1. Pumpkin Spice Tea Latte
