Tasting Notes: Rich amber liquor with heady scents of freshly baked pumpkin pie balanced by robust black tea tannin.
This seasonal treat is a blend of fall-harvested black tea with warm, traditional autumn baking spices. A popular seasonal alternative to our traditional Masala Chai, Pumpkin Pie Spice Chai is like an extra cozy fall sweater in tea form. We like to brew our Pumpkin Chai strong and serve it as a Pumpkin Spice Latte with milk and honey.
Pumpkin Chai is a decadent treat with our Cinnamon honey and makes an excellent afternoon pick-me-up or cozy morning brew.
Organically Produced Ingredients: Organic Black Tea, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Ginger, Organic Cardamom, Organic Clove, Organic Natural & Artificial Flavor.
Scented teas should be brewed according to the base tea leaves. White and green scented teas may be brewed at 185 degrees for 3 minutes. Black scented teas may be brewed at 205 degrees for 3-5 minutes. We recommend to brew chai teas at 205 degrees for 5-7 minutes to yield a strong cup that will hold nicely with honey and milk.
What is Scented Tea?
Blended or scented tea, as opposed to herbal tea, is based upon the leaf of the tea plant, camellia sinensis. Other ingredients such as flowers, dried fruits, and essential oils are then added to achieve the desired flavor.
Health Benefits of Scented Tea
Congratulations, if you are drinking tea, you have already chosen an incredible, healthful beverage. Tea is considered in many cultures to have medicinal properties. All tea comes from the same plant family, camellia sinensis and therefore all types and styles contain the same components that contribute to significant health benefits. Influence of the varietal, growing conditions, production techniques and your own brewing practices play a role in the antioxidant and caffeine levels in your cup. Blended and scented teas are no exception. So enjoy a cup of tea, any tea, and know that you are drinking health.
