drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
135 tasting notes

I remember trying this last fall, around the time when I first discovered davids, and being underwhelmed by it. All I got, both from dry sniff and from the sample I had in store, was an artificial caramel-ish note that was cloying and just really overtook any good qualities about the tea itself. After reading soo many positive reviews and fervent wishes that it would return this fall, I decided to give pumpkin chai another shot.

After all, it combines many of my favourite flavours, from pumpkin to cinnamon to that lovely chai spice blend. Is the recipe different this year, or just my tastebuds? Because I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I don’t get that unpleasant caramel top note, but rather a rich, creamy, almost toasty quality that is just so comforting and delicious. I’m a convert. This will be my go to tea for fall, I think.

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
