drank Pumpkin Spice Chai by Twinings
440 tasting notes

Cup five of tea bag sipdown day. This one is the first of the day I actually bought myself, on a whim one day at Denningers in Hamilton, Ontario. The smell of cinnamon and nutmeg was strong and fresh enough to escape the saran around the box, and since it made my tummy rumble, it had to come home with me.

Like the other reviewers, I don’t get pumpkin from this one. Which since I don’t like pumpkin itself, but love the spices surrounding it, means it’s kinda perfect for me. There is cinnamon and nutmeg and maybe a dash of allspice here, all blending in with a heavy clove. If you aren’t a clove fan, avoid this one.

The spices are strong, but the tea itself is weak. If you aren’t a fan of herbals, and want your black teas to taste like tea, again, avoid this one. But if you are just looking for a spiced hot cup of something, you will definitely enjoy this one.

Am tempted to see what it does as a latte . . . maybe later today!

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.


My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
