You know that fall is here when I start breaking out the chai tea. I was really excited to try this blend because pumpkin is one of my favorite seasonal flavors. The smell of the loose tea was intoxicating, like Thanksgiving dinner in a bag. It was earthy and spicy but not overdone. The squash and carrots are not something that I’ve ever seen in a tea before. They added an interesting meatiness that made the tea heartier than I would have expected. The pumpkin candies are absolutely adorable but did not really sweeten the tea nor did the caramel. So far I have been in love with everything from David’s Tea’s fall collection. I still have a few selections left to try but all of the flavors have been spot on.
