74
drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
232 tasting notes

1 “perfect scoop” (1.5tsp)
1 16oz mug
1 cinnamon honey stick
16oz of hot water….

Oh… Oh… Starbucks, eat your heart out! THIS IS pumpkin chai! I am glad I gave this tea another chance. That first sip of a sample must have not been made well. (It happens I have had bad tea days)

I think the biggest issue is that DAVIDs Black teas have a suggested leaf measurement that is too much. 1.5tsp to a meagre 8oz cup is over kill; for me.

Will I buy a full tin of this one? sip-sip, oh yes!

I steep almost all of my DT teas with one perfect teaspoon per pot. Our pot is 2 cups, each 12 oz, I belive. It’s almost always strong enough and will still do a re-steep. Makes up for the cost. : )

I use the recommended amount of tea but I use a lot more water than they say also. Like over double.
Glad you gave this one another try.

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
