Pumpkin Spice Season at Platform T

America is built on traditions that are passed down from generation to generation, and no tradition may be as sacred as celebrating this joyous, annual, life-changing event… the start of Pumpkin Spice Season. All of the warning signs of changing seasons are emerging. Look around you- the air is cooler, the leaves are falling and the days are getting shorter. Yet all of these changes pale in comparison to the importance of Pumpkin Spice in signaling the beginning of Fall. Halloween is approaching, and shortly thereafter winter will encroach once again, but in the interim, we have reason to celebrate. Maybe this year flew by, or maybe you have been dragging through the first half of the year waiting for this momentous occasion. Either way, one thing is for sure, the time for warm, frothy, Pumpkin flavored drinks is now!

Beginning on Tuesday, September 26th at Platform T, we will have a plethora of options for even the most sophisticated of pumpkin spice connoisseurs to be impressed and more importantly, satisfied.

For the Tea Drinkers: The Pumpkin Rooibos and Black Tea Blend.  This spiced and caffeinated tea beverage will surely delight any tea drinkers’ senses as the inviting smell is as beautiful as its taste.

For the Coffee Lovers: The Pumpkin Spice Latte. Although tea is our first love, espresso beverages hold a special place in our heart and that affection shines through for our warm, frothy coffee based latte. For all those with diet restrictions, we carry a wide array of dairy alternatives to make this experience possible for all those in need of a pumpkin spice latte to embrace their Fall vibes.

For the Chai Consumers: The Pumpkin Chai Latte. This perfect combination of warm, frothy milk and a delicious pumpkin infused chai blend is the best way to spice up a chilly morning or bring an end to a chilly windy autumn evening.

For the Booze Cruisers: The Drunken Pumpkin. The perfect addition to an autumn night on the town and its subtle pumpkin flavor gives a pleasant twist on the classic cocktail.

For the people who enjoy cold things on cold days: The Iced Pumpkin Almond Latte. A pumpkin laced sweet latte that will easily satisfy those iced drink cravings as the temperature continues to drop.
