In my teacup today is my fourth day of Christmas teas from TeaRevv. Today’s selection is Pumpkin Pie Chai. This blend would have been more at home a few months ago at Halloween! hence why I got my jack-o-lantern out to take photos!! I found this tea a little too synthetic, and I think it would have been a little better without so many “natural flavourings”. I would have liked to see real dried chunks of pumpkin pieces, and perhaps some form of biscuity base to hint at the pie. Nevertheless, this brew was not unpleasant, and the chai flavours were quite delicious, especially when served with a little honey for sweetness.

Pumpkin Pie Chai from TeaRevv is a little synthetic, and is more at home in the treat bags of ghosties at Halloween than in this advent calendar! Get the taste of Halloween here.
