I introduced my mother to loose leaf tea for her birthday earlier this year (thanks to the Whistling Kettle). Both of us actually. I had tried a few teas and knew they were superior to store bought bag teas but I was still a coffee guy. In the last 9 months, we have purchased half a dozen different teas and drink them almost as regularly as we do coffee. I find the joy in the doing (or not doing) is as peaceful as the actual drinking of the tea. Wu Wei I believe is the Doaist term. Just watching the tea boil. Just watching the tea steep. It's a somber affair for me.
But this isn't about me, its about tea. More specifically, it's about Pumpkin Chai. And this is a great tea. It has just the right hint of spice and pumpkin, leaving you with that cozy Autumn snuggled by the fire in a flannel blanket feeling. Now I'm not a huge pumpkin fan and this isn't my favorite tea in the cupboard. But I did just buy 2 more bags when they were back in stock because it is my mom's favorite. She absolutely loves it. And who can blame her. If you have any fond memories of fall, Autumn leaves turning colors, Halloween blanketing the neighborhood, this tea might trigger some of those old memories or maybe create some new ones.
I love this enough to buy enough to last me all year. I'm a big fan of the little sprinkles! It's more floral than a typical chai, balancing out the spice flavors nicely in the same way pumpkin mellows out the spice in pumpkin pie. Very comforting and warm.
I am not usually a big fan of chai teas, but I really loved this tea from my monthly samples and couldn’t wait to have it available to order!
Me and my friends loved this tea and thought the tea really suited the season.
