This delicious Pumpkin Ginger Iced Tea recipe is a great way to cool off on a hot summer day! There is some debate as to the origins of this drink as it has been made for many years and by many different cultures. This drink was originated in America and was largely popularized by Trader Joe's. They created a Pumpkin Spice Tea drink and later offered a Ginger one to go along with it. The idea of combining these two flavors became so popular that other companies started selling their own iterations of the drink.
What's interesting is that pumpkin ginger iced tea was not traditionally a seasonal food or beverage, but now it's something people enjoy all year long.
