Really good. I had it plain, although I like the suggestion of using steamed milk and brown sugar. I’ll have to try that next!

As it is, this tea has a strong pumpkin spice smell and a rich earthy taste. I was on the fence with the first few sips but can now appreciate the flavours with each sip! It’s not as OMGPumpkinPIEEEEE as I thought it would be, but it does taste strongly of pumpkin and the various spices used inside.

I guess it’s a chai because it has some of the same spices, but honestly it didn’t make me think of chai teas at all. Maybe the pumpkin/squash were stronger than I thought. Or maybe it’s just because I didn’t add any type of milk/cream like I normally do with chai.

I think this will be a new fall favourite! I sorta wish I’d picked up more than 30g, but so long as I nab a refill before they pull it, I’ll be ok.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!
