|Pumpkin Chai from DavidsTea|
|Pretty pretty new cup|
The first time I got a nice chunk of squash, and so WOW, it tasted exactly like pumpkin pie filling and I really liked it, it's like autumn was having a party in my mouth. The second time, I must not have gotten any squash because it was much more sweet and almost artificial tasting... the best way I can described it is like tasting the aroma of a fancy pumpkin or apple cinnamon candle (just not waxy), it isn't bad, much better if you make sure you get a piece of squash - yumyum. Just not what I was expecting... But my mum really loved it!
Next I will be trying it brewed extra strong as the DavidsTea Ultimate Pumpkin Chai recipe! I think it will be much better this way... Here we go!
|Ultimate Pumpkin Chai recipe from DavidsTea|
I am a huge fan of the Starbucks Chai-tea latte, so I was excited to make this....
I used three perfect spoonfuls in one cup of boiled water and let it sit for longer than six minutes, yadda yadda....
Blahhh... I can see how it would be a delightful drink, but I would reduce the amount of milk by a 1/4 cup (I reeaallly don't like that weird taste hot milk gets). Even with two and a HALF teaspoons of brown sugar and a pinch of nutmeg. Or maybe use some cream because 1% milk... eh.
This is a treat that needs tweeking for every individual. But it isn't gross, so, if you have the patience... DO IT!
I prefer it on its own.
But you'll have to decide for yourself.
Sorry this was SO long. And so many pictures.
