It’s weird: I am not usally a fan of chai, nor of pumpkin, but I tried this as a sample tonight and I actually liked it! I’m shocked by how much, really!

The Fall Collection
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.
