Thank you to VariaTea for sharing a sample of this one. :)
2 tsp leaf, 500 mL boiling water. I added 1 tsp agave syrup + a touch of milk but found it needed quite a while to steep strong enough to come through the milk. The base tastes like an Assam and Chinese black blend. I can taste the fennel, cardamom, cinnamon, and clove. I would have liked more maple syrup flavour, but this is still very tasty. Our family recipe for pumpkin pie uses nutmeg/clove/allspice/cinnamon/mace, with the predominant flavour being clove and nutmeg. I don’t think this tastes like pumpkin pie/pumpkin spice without the nutmeg. It does make a great chai latte for an early morning, though.
Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Clove, Fennel, Malt, Tannic
