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.
