drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
95 tasting notes

I had Pumpkin Chai today. It is absolutely one of my favorite tea’s from David’s Tea but because it’s seasonal I tend to be stingy with it and save it for only special occasions. This tea is spicy, flavourful and stands up to a good long steeping. Great with milk, or a dollop of whipped cream (When I make whipped cream, I don’t add sugar, just vanilla).

I don’t sweeten this tea, I don’t find that it needs it at all, but if you wanted it to taste even more like pumpkin pie than it already does, perhaps sugar might suit you.

Out of the fall tea collection, without a doubt this is the one I will miss the most even though it’s winter counterpart, Chili Chocolate Chai, is equally as delicious.

Goodbye, Comrade.

I have four of the small gift tins of this tea, and I hoard them like Gollum. One was a gift, and the other three I talked a salesperson into getting from the back because they were dented/scratched, so I got them half price.

They need to bring this back as a regular.

Bio

Hello, Steepster!

I’m a twenty-something who attends Concordia University studying English Lit and Irish Studies. I also work at an online store that sells party supplies and costumes! My life is literally a party everyday!

Besides my work/school I’m also a comic book lover. I love attending conventions and have, in the past, done so in costume! (In 2009 it was Sally Jupiter). I also co-author a web comic called Abe and Kroenen and plan on being the author for a couple more upcoming projects. You can check those all out on my website/blog if you’re interested!

Now! About tea!

Formerly an avid coffee drinker I realised that 1. I didn’t really like the taste and 2. I really wasn’t ever getting enough sleep. The switch to tea was, at first, a painful one as extensively my knowledge of tea reached only so far as what was available at Tim Hortons and what my grandmothers kept in their cupboards.

I had a roommate, however, that never drank coffee—and slowly but surely I found myself converted. Then, just last summer, I stumbled upon DavidsTea and my life was changed forever.

Besides David’s, I also visit Teaopia whenever I’m back in Ontario, I’ve recently uncovered Camellia Sinensis in Montreal and new place that I’m yet to try—Milly’s Boutique!

I’m also a strong believer in Twinings and The Stash Company, and I’ve recently ordered some teas from 52teas, The Republic of Tea and Andrews & Dunham and I’m eagerly awaiting their arrival!

P.S. I love to write, and I love tea so expect me to chatter about in my reviews quite a bit!
