drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
1763 tasting notes

Say, did anyone ever sing a song in elementary school that went something like:

Pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie
Tasty as can be
That down home country cookin’
That’s the kind for me

Whenever I drink this tea, I think of this song, only I sing it as, “Pumpkin chai, pumpkin chai, tasty as can be…”

This year’s rendition smells drool-worthy. Super duper spicy and creamy, surely this must be a winner this season.

But I don’t know, once I steep this up and add a touch of light cream, it tastes off. The base has a weird stale undertone, the cinnamon is the most powerful note in here, much like cinnamon candy hearts, and I don’t taste any caramel in this as I had been hoping.

I’m glad I only got 12g, which I split with my mom into two big mugs, so it’s already done. Cinnamon cardboard candy? That kind of sums it up.

Awe that’s unfortunate :( my bag was mostly caramel and spices this year! Maybe just different tastes :P or batches

Who knows! FWIW, my mom enjoyed it, so I just may be the freak haha. As for the batch, I picked mine up at Southgate.

MissLena

Hmm mine was from there too, interesting! Probably just individual tastes then :) sorry it didn’t taste as good for you though!

Has it always had caramel in it? I can’t even remember! Also, I didn’t sing that song growing up, but I love teas that remind us of songs we sang as kids!

Fjellrev

Sil, when was the last time you were there? The mall has changed a lot over the last five years!

I don’t remember it having caramel before either, keychange. Glad I’m not the only one!
