I’m finally back after a weekend of radio silence. I was plagued by headaches on and off all weekend and decided to take a break from the computer for a bit 🙁 But I’m back again, feeling better and ready to tell y’all about a new tea 😀
I finally made it to David’s Tea on Saturday and picked up one of their starter kits along with some Pumpkin Chai Tea. This black tea contains a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, lemon peel, squash, carrot, caramel bits and pumpkin candies. So basically heaven in a bag 😉
Use 1.5 tsp per cup and steep for 4 – 6 minutes in 98°C water.
The Pumpkin Chai tea definitely smelled like baked pumpkiny goodness. After making a bazillion pumpkin treats this weekend, it was nice to get that amazing scent without having to do all that work 😉
I’m not sure if I’m saying this right, but the pumpkin chai tea had a full bodied taste. What I mean is that nothing was missing or shortchanged. It didn’t give a hint of pumpkin spice and leave you wanting for more, it tasted like the real deal! YUM! I can’t wait to try this recipe to see how it holds up as a latte! I see amazing things in my future 😆
The Pumpkin Chai Tea has all the benefits of chai tea as well as the added benefits of lemon peel, which is not only great for your skin, but is a natural immune system booster.
Drinking the Pumpkin Chai tea was probably the best tea drinking experience so far. It totally satisfied my insatiable desire for pumpkin without making me feel guilty for gorging on baked goods :D. It’s definitely going to become my go to tea for fall (and maybe the rest of my life ;))
p.s. I may try to double up on teas later on in the month but for now it’ll still be one a day
