Commercial Description

...this spiced black tea is arguably just as delicious. It’s got all the warmth of cinnamon, pumpkin 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...

I tried this before, just brewed western-style, and it was ok but not great. So this time I decided to do it the David’s Tea recommended way: simmered on the stove. 1 cup each of milk and water, 6g (two generous teaspoons) of tea, 2 tsp of brown sugar (I used organic sucanat because… it was there). Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer. I ended up simmering for about 7min before taking it off the heat and straining into a mug.

Okay. This is pretty damn delicious. It really does smell like pumpkin pie, and with the creaminess of the milk and sweetness of sugar, the taste matches the aroma much better. I’m still getting a very faint plasticky aftertaste on some sips, which I suspect is from those cute little pumpkin candies. I’ll be pulling those out before brewing this again. How creepy is it that several of them were still intact (soggy, but intact) after 7min of simmering? Just, no. Anyway, my issues with the decorative candies aside, this was yummy. :)

The aroma of this tea is very sweet and creamy with extremely strong spices. The cinnamon and cloves really overpower the rest of the aromas, but there is a faint hint of malt, pumpkin, and caramel under the potent spices.

The initial impact of the taste is a tingly and numb feeling from the spices, it is a little overwhelming, but it quickly fades to mellow sweetness and spices. Adding cream and sugar (this is a chai after all) dampens the overwhelming spices, and now there is a rich caramel taste and strong squash notes. I still think that the spices are too strong, so much so that a few minutes after starting to sip this tea I started getting red in the face and breaking out in hives...sometimes that happens to me when I have too much cinnamon. I was really happy that this tea tasted like squash, but the abundance of spices really made this tea not a favorite.
