drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
75 tasting notes

OK, I have to get this out there before I go any further. I strongly dislike the smell of this tea, whether in the bag or in the cup. That being said, I have tried it twice now. The first was in a simple no-fuss tea with no additives. Meh. Not a fan.

The second was today, following the DT recipe: 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup water, 1 tsp of brown sugar and Pumpkin Chai on the stovetop. I had no hope for it turning out well (I should probably mention that I don’t like chai teas).

Verdict? I don’t like the smell. I don’t like chai. So then why do I actually like this?? It tastes nice and pumkin-y, and the milk makes it a creamy fall drink. I actually steeped it for only 4 minutes compared to the suggested 5-10, and will definately steep longer next time. Not a favorite, but I might actually enjoy going through the 25g I bought. Huh.
