drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
33 tasting notes

I opened this on a freezing Winter night hoping for something delightful when… Well, something went wrong. My stomach turned when I inhaled the aroma. It was overwhelming and too sickly for me to handle and I honestly contemplated whether I had gotten the right bag as this is highly praised… But I did.

After brewing it and steadying my nerves I found the tea a lot less pungent than the bag but too odd for me. It tasted like bark. Not in a bad way mind you, I definitely got a taste of autumn in it but it mostly tasted woodsy and lacking and I found myself disappointed at how things had turned. It proved that I cannot judge a tea on aroma alone but it still didn’t make my grade.

I’ll probably finish off the bag if I can but no rebuy will be scheduled for it in the future.

I’m 24 years old and female. I used to be in university as a History Major but I gave it up to be a Laboratory Technician at a coal mine. My days are long and switch to nights many a time but I always bring 3 bags of tea with me to enjoy and have fun with.

When I’m not breaking my back over coal I spend my time in my room with my two cats playing video games until the sun comes up and watching a variety of movies, most of which are Disney or are animated in some way.

When it comes to tea, I have a fierce loyalty to DAVIDsTEA as they treated me right and garnered my respect. For the most part I am focusing on them but I take other Canadian Tea companies into mind and hopefully can expand my cupboard with them.

I currently have no tea rating guides but if I indicate I bought a Tin or will store a Tin constantly on my shelf, it usually means I will be hopelessly devoted to it.

My other interests include collection Starbucks cups, listening to Deadmau5, and watching far too many BBC shows.
