I’m upping my rating on this since last year…when I had this for the first time last year, I had previously had Saigon Chai in my cupboard, which is rather potent, so this paled in comparison. I admit that I haven’t had any Saigon Chai since last year (I’m not sure why…probably just trying lots of new things and rotating I guess) and upon having this tea this morning, it was quite good. I will still say that it is mild for a chai, and the pumpkin is kind of muted, but it is still rather pleasant and comforting. It does, however, taste stronger than last year, and I’m not sure if the blend has been reformulated, or if my taste buds have been reformulated since I didn’t have the stronger and spicier Saigon Chai prior to this. Now that I have mastered the art of the home latte a la microwave, I am going to try this as a latte again though I might try stove-top chai method too, and steep it straight into the milk. Again, this is one I might get the special tin.
