This… this is the essence of fall in a tall travel mug on the chilly walk to class.
At first I thought it was a little weak on the pumpkin and chai flavors but it gets better with every sip!

Let’s face it, the best thing about fall is pumpkin pie. And this spiced black tea is arguably just as delicious. It’s got all the warmth of cinnamon, pumpkin pieces, cloves and cardamom, plus the sweetness of caramel and pumpkin candy. For a true autumn treat, top it up with steamed milk and stir in a spoonful of brown sugar. It’ll make you wish it were fall all year round.
Ingredients: Black tea, cinnamon, cloves, lemon peel, squash, carrot, caramel bits, pumpkin candies.

I still have a semi-full tin of this from last October. Got some of it purely on the hype. However I have this weird…seasonal thing where I can only drink pumpkiny stuff in autumn, so I’ve not touched it since.
First try? I wasn’t thrilled, but.. in hindsight, I was prob’ly doin’ it wrong. >_> Its got loads of potential and I keep sniffing it everytime I rifle through the tea cupboard. Soon…
That said, it tastes like pumpkin. It smells like pumpkin and autumn and Halloween and weirdly enough that sweet smell of fallen leaves in the rain. Perfect for October. Mid-spring though? Hm…
EDIT: EUREKA. MY GOD WE HAVE IT.
Mama Owl found a recipe somewhere that DT posted for Pumpkin Chai. With much trepidation I followed. Turns out I’ve been doin’ it wrong this whole time. The flavour was too rich and I could never finish a full cup, but done indian style over the stove like a traditional chai? Topped with brown sugar and cream froth? Its like pumpkin pie. We have FOUND THE SECRET LADIES AND GENTS. Owlie can finally enjoy Pumpkin Chai. _ (Rating adjusted accordingly)
I’m disagreeing with the general consensus here. I do taste pumpkin, but I taste fake candy pumpkin. It’s WAY too sweet, too much like candy. I think the chai spices are well balanced. To cut the in your face sweet candy taste, I’ve been mixing it about 50/50 with my favorite straight black chai.
Glad others enjoy it, but it’s not for me.
First time trying this. :) So excited! The smell made me even more excited, it smells delish!
Drinking it now, it didn’t disappoint. :) Unlike the Harvest Pumpkin Chai from Infusions, this actually does taste like pumpkin. It has that right cinnamon and clovesy spice that I like.
Since this was my first time trying this, I steeped in the middle of the recommendation (it suggested 4-6, so I went with 5) but I think next time I’ll steep for the 6. While it’s quite tasty, I’m finding myself smacking my lips a bit trying to taste it even more, which is something I’m not used to doing with black tea. But this is an easy fix, and not an actual criticism of the tea itself.
If I could change one thing, it’d be that it’d be nice if you could taste the base a little bit more, but for a yummy pumpkiny treat, this definitely hits the spot. :)
