I’m quite ambivalent about this one. I had the first cup straight (no milk, sugar, etc.) and found it thoroughly unremarkable at best. I tried adding rice milk to the second cup, which didn’t improve the taste. Nor did adding a dash of cinnamon to that cup. Finally, for the third cup, I tried it with a few crystals of brown rock sugar. That definitely brought out the flavor. So in the interest of giving this tea its best chance, I am only reviewing that third cup.
This is quite pumpkin-y and a bit creamy. The pumpkin creaminess hits you first, then the cinnamon comes in followed by the other spices. The aftertaste is definitely spicy pumpkin. The pumpkin flavor tastes pretty natural, not at all artificial. This isn’t terrible, but there’s something about the spice blend that just isn’t doing it for me. I’m in no hurry to have this again.
And the reason I just downed three cups of chai when it’s nearly midnight is that this is now a sipdown! Whoo! I got this from our Taste of France swap. I think it’s from teamore. Thanks for the taste!
