Well, not quite, but if you’re a fan of ordering drinks off the Starbucks Secret Menu, we’re sharing a way you can bring this popular pumpkin drink back to your fall rotation this year! Better yet, we’re going to share exactly how to order it and it’s even mobile-order friendly!

Thanks to my Hip sidekick, Alana, we can all now enjoy one of our classic favorites again and it’s giving us all the fall vibes! Plus, it’s incredibly easy to order at Starbucks or on mobile!

Did you see our other pumpkin Secret Menu drinks for fall? Try our Pumpkin iced latte, Pumpkin Cheesecake Frapp, and/or even the Chocolate Pumpkin Frapp before pumpkin season is over!

So what’s in the Starbucks Pumpkin Chai Latte?

  • Chai Latte (the drink base)
  • Pumpkin syrup

That’s literally it!

Here’s how to order a Pumpkin Chai Latte on the Starbucks mobile app:

  • Choose the “Chai Latte” drink (it will default to a Grande size)
  • Then change Chai pumps from 4 to 2
  • Add 2 pumps of pumpkin syrup

Or if you don’t want to order through the app, here’s what you need to say to your barista when you get to Starbucks:

“Hey! Can I please have a Grande Chai Latte with just 2 pumps of Chai, add 2 pumps of Pumpkin syrup? Thanks!”

When ordering different sizes for this drink, make sure to adjust the number of Pumpkin and Chai pumps accordingly:

  • Tall: 1 Chai & 1 Pumpkin pump
  • Grande: 2 Chai & 2 Pumpkin pumps
  • Venti: 3 Chai & 3 Pumpkin pumps

Here’s what Alana had to say about her fall drink concoction:

“This Pumpkin Chai tastes so yummy! I was thrilled to find a way to bring back one of my favorite drinks off the old menu. As much as I loved a classic Pumpkin Spice Latte, it’s so nice to change it up with a delicious hot chai drink! It did not have an intense pumpkin taste, so if you’re really looking for a punch of pumpkin, just add another pump. These two flavors were made to be together – I absolutely love it!”

    I like to get an iced chia latte, with pumpkin cream cold form and cinnamon dolce syrup. So yummy!

    The previous recipe for pumpkin chai latte was awesome too. Quickly became my go to favorite. It had cold foam and pumpkin powder on top

    Is this pumpkin syrup sugar free?
    Thank you

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Brenda! I don’t believe they have sugar free pumpkin. Bummer!

    Sad to say that the chai tea is a powdered mix that they just add water to. My discount grocery had cases of the bags of mix. The Teavana too.
