Rich, spice-filled and comforting, with a hint of caramel – like a slice of pumpkin pie!– David’s Tea
Warm and cozy, this delicious blend resembles more of a sweet gingerbread than a pumpkin chai. Still, its interesting colors create a sweet and enjoyable cup. Though the sweetness does teeter the line of too much for me, so long as it’s sipped with a more neutral snack/meal, the flavors aren’t overwhelming. The source this sweetness can also clearly be observed in the various ingredients listed below (some of which feel present only for aesthetic value rather than for the necessity of flavor). Finally, despite its cozy presence, the tea does contain caffeine, making it more appropriate for cold mornings or afternoons — which is a bit of a bummer. In any case, I’d still recommend trying a cup, and then making your decision from there.
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 flavouring), Pumpkin flakes, Natural and artificial pumpkin spice flavouring.

Tried this blend recently and I wasn’t to pleased with it! I thought I would love it but it was just lacking to so many ways. Not quite too sure why it’s a fan fave 😂
Ahhh, that’s too bad. To each their own though! I’m still developing my taste palate, so perhaps I may come to dislike it in time 🤔
I’ve found that been the case for me as ive gone further into my tea journey. It may also be thst I only had a small sample so I might not have had a good distribution of the ingredients
