drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
757 tasting notes

I tried this in a more latte style (nuked a little milk for 1:20 and used more tea and less water to steep), and well, it’s just ok…it is so mild tasting, but in accepting this tea for what it is, rather than what it isn’t (it isn’t very chai, but it is sorta pumpkin spice), it is fine. It is not offensive to the tastebuds…but not terribly stimulating either. Now this isn’t necessarily bad in my book. There is a sort of comfort with this…mild, creamy, and sweet isn’t always bad. I think I might see how Teaopia’s Pumpkin Spice is in comparison. This was the last of this bag. I don’t know if I will repurchase. I might try the Carrot Cake instead, or…just hoard some more Buttercream. ;)

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are…

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty (except rose), and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

Yes, I do trades…usually on request though. See something you want to try in my cupboard? Just shoot me a message and I’ll see what I can do!

Uh, guess that’s it.
