Pumpkin Sage Chai Tea Recipe​—Combine 8 oz. of fresh puréed pumpkin OR an 8 oz. can of pumpkin purée, 3 slices of dehydrated orange, 4 oz. of white sugar, and two sprigs of fresh sage in a pot.

The Poe was inspired by Torres’ childhood. “When I was young, my mother would make fragrant meals and hot drinks with fresh pumpkin, turmeric and sage grown in our garden.”
