2019 Tasting Notes
The package directions say to mix equal parts of Pumpkin Spice Chai Latte concentrate with milk or any milk substitute. I opted for half and half since that is what I normally make my chai with (plus we’re out of milk again.) After mixing the two together I took a sip and was surprised to find that I didn’t really care for it. It had an odd flavor to it that I couldn’t quite pin-point, it was sharp and somewhat bitter. That was rather surprising considering the amount of sugar in this concentrate. I put it in the fridge and left it overnight thinking I’d give it another try later. When I pulled it out the next morning the flavors had settled, the sharp taste I objected to was gone. All I tasted was an extremely sweet chai, much like what I order at the coffee shop.

This tea doesn’t taste like your typical Assam. Instead of the bold flavor I was expecting, it was mellow with slight hints of barley and malt. It has a surprisingly sweet undertone to it and didn’t turn bitter or astringent, even when steeped for five minutes. This is one of the rare teas that I could drink a lot of, either hot or iced, and not be bored with it. I don’t say that often about unflavored black teas.
