drank Caramel Spice by DAVIDsTEA

The initial smell is that of oranges, not getting a lot of caramel. So, how will it taste?

I tried to like this tea. I really did, but it just didn’t jive with my taste buds: too much orange, no hint of the caramel in the name, and an odd taste which I assume comes from the mulberries. Nope, could not like it. This tea and I are destined for separate lives, which is fine by me.

My sister-in-law had the first steep, I got the second and it was actually pretty decent. More cherry than tea, but tasty nonetheless.

Did I steep this wrong again?? It’s just not coming out as spectacular as everyone says it is!

If it helps, you seem to be finding it just about as spectacular as I do. :)

Hurray! I’m not alone.

Today, boys & girls, we will be making a Pumpkin Chai Latte. You will need:

Hot, frothed milk. Check.
Light brown sugar. Check.
A touch of boiling water*. Uh-huh.
BIG, big mug. Checkedy check.
Ample amounts of Pumpkin Chai. Check, check, check.

Steep loose tea in 1/4 cup boiled water in the bottom of a glass measuring cup for, oh, 1-2 minutes. While waiting prepare your hot, frothy milk using whichever method you see fit (I used the microwave since I have no patience, but the stove works, and if you have a milk steamer then even better!) and stir in desired amount of brown sugar. Pour milk into steeping tea and wait… I waited about 5 minutes… then strain into mug, top with sprinkle of brown sugar, and ENJOY!

Note: I know, I know, one could just skip the whole water bit and steep the tea right into the hot milk, BUT I guarantee that by slightly steeping it beforehand you get so much more pumpkiny goodness. And one can never have enough of that!

deeeelish!

Faith

Especially as a latte… mmhmm.

Maxime-Daniel Friðrikson

Chai latte ALWAYS rule. A Chai must be enjoyed like that. :)

Faith

So true, the milkier the better.

Thanks! I might have to get more of this tea to try this way. By brown sugar, do you mean the brown sugar that is used in baking, or brown sugar as in, table sugar that is raw/unrefined?

Faith

Heather: I mostly use the brown sugar for baking. The raw sugar could work, but the baking brown sugar has so much more flavour to it.

Plunkybug

Thanks Faith. I do have the raw sugar, but not the baking brown sugar.

Faith

I ran out of brown for awhile and subbed in plain raw sugar, you can barely tell the difference, except the brown makes it slightly more caramelly… that is all.

Ah, Strawberry White, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Okay, so I know that people either love or hate this tea, and I gotta tell ya I’m in the love side. This was the first flavoured white tea that I tried and ever since, it has been the tea I measure all others against. It’s the tea I serve people when they come over to visit and I always get two steeps out of the leaves, which give you a little more bang for your buck. It’s light, crisp, with hints of the strawberry, never heavy or thick, and good hot or cold.

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
