I had a mug of this earlier this morning and as usual it was great. It kept me nice and cozy as I waited for the bus :D

Let’s face it, the best thing about fall is pumpkin pie. And this spiced black tea is arguably just as delicious. It’s got all the warmth of cinnamon, squash pieces, cloves and cardamom, plus the sweetness of caramel and pumpkin candy. For a true autumn treat, top it up with steamed milk and stir in a spoonful of brown sugar. It’ll make you wish it were fall all year round.
Ingredients: Black tea, cinnamon, cloves, caramel (milk, sugar, glucose syrup, butter, sorbitol, mono and diglycerides), carrot, lemon peel, pumpkin candies (sugar, rice flour, cottonseed oil, soybean oil, corn starch, gum arabic, cellulose gum, yellow 6, confectioner’s glaze, carrageenan, soy lecithin, artificial flavoring), pumpkin flakes, natural and artificial pumpkin spice flavoring.

OMG ITS SOOOO GOOD
New favorite tea omnomnomnommn
I get the box with 25g of each tea in it. eep excite!
This one is thick, in such a good way. Edit: Okay folks, this tea tastes like pumpkin. No fakes, no extract, it tastes like pure real pumpkin goodness.
I make my own pumpkin chai by steeping regular chai in milk and adding pumpkin spice & a can of pumpkin. This is totally on par, and way less work.
I actually can’t wait for fall so I can drink this all day every day. I can wait for winter, however.
Sigh what am I saying, I have to enjoy the hot weather while it lasts!!
(In Saskatchewan, where I live, the summers reach a high of +40 C and the winters a low of -50 C ) Convert that to F and then come talk to me. haha
Backlog from when I was at the mall today:
Woo! Good. I still like it! I wasn’t sure because some of the ultra-crazy-sugary blends no longer appeal to me as much now that I’ve discovered the beauty of Butiki and Verdant teas, but THIS is one I still love.
It’s just… fall in a cup. I break all the rules for this one. I love it as a latte with brown sugar, but will settle for some with a dash of milk.
I started this season with 50g. I’ll probably buy more later, but I didn’t need a free tin, and would prefer smaller foil bags right now.
Mmm, so silky today. Gotta love those almond milk and brown sugar additions! I even got my mom hooked!
So far the weekend is looking pretty nice. Saw the new Dracula last night and we’re planning to get sushi in SF tonight, where they serve a whole big pot o’ genmaicha! We might even upgrade our phones today! Yay!
Ugh..I got a crazy migraine today..was not fun, pretty sure it was weather related, finally had a Tylenol after having some matcha for caffeine and it is mostly gone. Anyways, I am having this tea because I find that I feel better when I have at least one cup of tea with milk in it a day, whether it’s due to the calcium or something, it seems to help anxiety, head hurting, etc haha. So tonight, this has milk and brown sugar in it. And it is good, as always. Hoping my headache doesn’t come back anytime soon..although it seems like it probably will, right before bed. Ugh, gotta love weather changes! See previous notes on this tea :)
Time for my weekend tea treat!
I made this one the stove today, not sure if I did it right because this is the first time I tried it, but it turned out really good. Milk, water, tea, and a teaspoon of brown sugar in the pan, simmering for 10minutes.
I put a dollop of light cool-whip on it as well. A real treat, and it was delicious!!!! This is such a comforting tea! Such a good mood now! Have a WONDERFUL Sunday everyone!
I’ve been wanting to try this, and CupofTree had it in the fall collection and hadn’t tried it yet. We just had it as a regular cup of tea instead of making it with milk. It needed a little sugar to bring everything out, even the spices.
It’s definitely not chai-like at all, it’s more like drinking a pumpkin spice or pumpkin pie tea, because the only spices are the ones you typically put in a pumpkin pie. And that’s fine by me because I’m picky about chai, so this one is excellent.
The pumpkin flavor is nice too. I have a bit to try their pumpkin chai recipe so I’ll do that when I get home and then decide if this is something I want to have regularly. It’s definitely something I like better than the Sweet Harvest Pumpkin because that was just too sweet.
One of the types of tea I’ve never gotten into is chai. I mean, I love chai when I get it at a restaurant, all milky and sugary, but I never make it myself. Partly because most of the time I make my tea at work, and I don’t keep milk or sugar there, and partly because I feel like it’s often best made on a stovetop. I always fear chai will be too strong and too spicy when made as I usually make tea.
This one got really great reviews, and when Sare offered to send me a sample of it in our recent swap I said ok. I do love love love pumpkin anything. Today I decided to make up a cup. I had to use a tea sack that I got in a Talbott Teas gift pack because my teapot is somewhere in storage still, and I decided to just try it straight first just to see how it held up without milk or sugar.
I also hadn’t sought this one out because in the past I’ve never been super impressed with DavidsTeas’ offerings. I mean, they’ve been pretty good but not spectacular, and nothing I would come back for. I have to say, this tea changes that. This tea is really delicious. It is primarily pumpkiny with a nice bit of pumpkin-pie spice type flavoring, but not too spicy like I might expect from a chai. For me, that’s just fine. I think possibly it could be steeped really strong and it might be more like a traditional chai (with pumpkin!). I also can’t really distinctly taste the black tea, but it isn’t bitter or anything so it’s not so bad. I can imagine this with a fantastic chocolatey black base, though, and it would be amazing. Still, I might have to go by DavidsTea next time I am in the city and pick up some more of this tea. Thanks fro recommending it, Sare!
My family is having a Thanksgiving lunch today! I am so excited!!!! Even though I am vegetarian, I still love everything about Thanksgiving! The smell of the food, the Christmas music, the company!! To start of my day with a smile, as soon as I was done running I made myself a delicious Pumpkin Chai Latte!!
The dry leaves with pumpkin sprinkles make me smile every time! The smell is very sweet and pumpkin bread like. It doesn’t quite reach my spice requirement, but that can be easily fixed with a pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon!
I frothed up my milk and made my tea in my double walled Bodum cup. It smelled like joy! My Mom walked by and asked if I decided to bake pumpkin bread, this of course made me smile and I made her try my tea. She loved it! I get points for making my coffee loving Mom admit to really liking a tea!!
I can honestly say that last year I did not love this tea. I am not sure what changed… I still acknowledge that it must be a latte to be really tasty, but it is really tasty! Today, it was the perfect tea to start the day off with a smile! I think I will need another cup of this with Thanksgiving dessert!!! :)
Upping the rating a bit!
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.
