Another tea in the wonderful package from TreeGal. Again, I really appreciate it! A pumpkin chai from TeaRevv certainly will be interesting to me. The blend has some ingredients I haven’t seen in a pumpkin chai before, like rosehips? And hibiscus? Luckily, these didn’t result in the flavor too much, so I’m fine with it. I see the sprinkles that look like the sprinkles used in B&B’s pumpkin tea. However, sadly, this blend is not as fantastic as B&B’s blend. It isn’t bad. But much like most pumpkin teas, there is never an actual pumpkin element. (B&B at least uses carrots.) I think there is a higher ratio of black tea leaves than spices. The flavor is slightly spiced with hints of sweetness, not sure if it’s from that lone sprinkle. The black tea has medium depth, so it’s tasty enough for me. I’m not sure why this one gets such a low rating.
