The first few sips I had of this when it was really hot were absolutely amazing. Pure pumpkin pie. I poured a small amount into a separate cup to try it with some milk, and that was great too. Definitely pumpkin with light spices in there. I brought the rest to work, and for some reason, it didn’t taste special anymore. I did overleaf it since I had a little too much leaf for one cup but not enough for two, so maybe that could lead to some flavor confusion. Yeah it just tasted like many other spiced black teas. The spices became more pronounced as it sat. I did enjoy it, but I guess if I ever have this tea again, it either needs to be very hot or with added milk. It made a decent second steep with plenty of starchiness.
Thanks to tea-sipper for the sample!!
