The guy at Davids called this “the key to a lady’s heart” when I went there to buy some, and I completely agree! Every woman I know who has tried this tea just loves it. Myself included.

It’s not my favourite, but when it’s cold outside and I want something sweet and comforting, this is what I turn to. I like it with cream and brown sugar to add to the indulgence. I indulge even more when I get nice and lazy and just leave the leaves in there the whole time. I’ve never had it go bitter or weird on me… there’s probably enough other stuff in there to hide my sins.

The only points off are actually for the smell, which I find a bit too strong. The caramel candy smell is delicious, but just a mite overpowering. It totally mellows out when brewed though, so I don’t mind.

Now, I’m off to have a mug for dessert, because it’s -21 out there!

Nothing wrong with being unpredictable, Indigo!

I didn’t really like this one either, and for the exact reason you pointed out in your post – the smell is completely overpowering! Which is sas, because the flavour is wonderful, especially with milk and brown sugar… darn smell!

I totally get that, Kay! When I’m introducing my friends to Pumpkin Chai, I always tell them to smell it from afar. If they put their nose right in the tin, they’re usually turned off by the blast of candy smell. That being said, one taste, and they’re pretty well sold. ;-)
