Pumpkin chai tea latte, Nido

Illustration by Brian Breneman

I love to make fun of pumpkin spice latte (#PSL!) consumers as much as the next person, which is why my last visit at Nido pained me. The pumpkin chai tea latte ($5.97) sounded so wonderful but also like an embarrassingly classic stuff-white-women-like situation. But I refuse to feel guilty because Nido uses real pumpkin puree, creating a feel-good velvety consistency. The housemade chai, cinnamon and nutmeg really make the drink feel prime for holiday consumption—let’s just not make #PCTL a thing. 1409 R Street, Suite 102;http://hellonido.com.
