I think I can recognize a DT in a blind test- or blind taste.
I don’t know, there is a signature, something like a kind of special vanilla maybe…an aroma I get everytime I drink one DT.

So this one is a DT as well. I have the same complaint about the tea base, too weak for me, I don’t have the feeling to have a tea but more an infusion, once and again…bis repetita…

The dry leaves scent is a perfection, very spicy and mild cinnamon mainly + pumpkin of course.

I was expecting something stronger as it is a chai but it’s a very light chai to me.

I think I am quite happy with this tea because I normally dislike pumpkin and I found it fair. If the tea base was stronger I would probably even have really liked it.

Forgot to thanks Darby for giving me the opportunity to taste this blend ! Thanks so much Darby

I know what you mean. I can tell the same tea base taste in 52 tea’s and the same tea smell/taste in some other tea companies. I wish they would have someone come in with a fresh nose. STOP USING THE SAME BASE ALL THE TIME! The tea scents smell muddled then the flavors get muddled too.

hehe, I remember expecting more of a chai out of this too my first time. I just treat as a pumpkin spice tea now :D and I prefer Red Leaf Tea’s pumpkin pie matcha to it, or the pumpkin caramel cheesecake by 52 teas

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
