Tea company says: “Pairs well with and a sweater and blanket”
They also have a Deluxe Pumpkin Spice Black Tea, which was in the database, but I added this one as it has different ingredients listed such as Allspice. Strangely, if you go to the Plum Deluxe website it lists this one, but one of the pictures is still of the ultimate bag. This company does switch their teas seasonally quite a bit and does some retire some on a semi-regular basis.
First, I’ll start with the positives. The flavouring is very good for the “seasoning” part. I don’t get pumpkin really but it may lend to the warmth. Cinnamon is there but not too spicy and not artificial. There is a small spice bite but not overwhelming for those who like the spice to be smooth in these blends. I also don’t detect any artificial sweetener in this blend.
Now for the bad side….the tea part is very weak. I have run into this with some of their blends. Honeybush Tea is listed as the first ingredient, so perhaps this is a milder tea, but then it lists “black tea”. The tea part disappears quite a bit other than the flavorings, similar to drinking autumn flavored tea water with a touch of tea. :/ If they put in a fuller, richer tea base, these blends would be much better.
