So, I finally picked up a few blends. I’ll make a review of the physical location itself once the Places tab is usable again.

This was… The smell was downright familiar, in a "I’ve smelt this exact profile of ‘Pumpkin Tea’ somewhere before’. Stash’s? Republic of Tea’s? Metropolitan’s? I don’t know. Not DAVIDs’, not Murchie’s. It’s something like a ‘liquid chocolate flavour’ kind of scent. Still there while brewed.

This tastes thin, but fine. Rosehip I picked up. Clove and cinnamon, followed by ginger for a warmth. It’s thin, not really creamy and full. I’m surprised I get nothing, or very little, from the stevia. It’s unobtrusive, whereas usually it dominates any blend that has the misfortune of containing it? If it wasn’t listed in the ingredients, I probably would have guessed any sweetness was from the fruit or the candy. The more I sip, the more the ginger sticks and lingers, which is pleasant.

No pumpkin, just the barest watery fruit, overtopped with the usual spices, although no creamyness or heft to it. I picked myself up some vintage mugs, and the taste and look at least fits the aesthetic of the fall-harvest mug I’m drinking it out of.

This was fine.

In all fairness, I don’t know if I’ve ever come across a Pumpkin Chai that I really loved. It’s just one of those profiles that doesn’t excite me personally – in part because I don’t tend to love Chai but also in part because I’m always so disappointed by the lack of actual pumpkin in the taste profile.

In the case of this Pumpkin Chai I thought that the flavour was milder than what I’ve typically come across, with a bit more of a creaminess to the profile and a slightly more muted level of spice. Cinnamon and ginger being the two prominent spice notes coming through. The flavour balance itself was fine to me, but I did think the cup felt a little bit thin overall – I suppose brewing more leaf or perhaps adding milk could be a good solution to that.

One thing I’d love to see is a pumpkin tea on a Chinese white base like baimudan, with natural natural melon and malty-leafy notes. Maybe even a Yunnan silver needle!
