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.

I have a drink obsession in general – daily lattes and coffees, and of course teas of many varieties. I mainly drink hot tea in Florida, but still enjoy the occasional southern sweet iced.

My preference is black tea, although I’m open to trial and error with others. I like the old fashioned English style tea cups, tea parties, food pair-ups, mini desserts and pies, cubes of sugar, small collection of Rose Red tea pets, you get the idea. I will always have an old fashioned tea kettle on the stove, but have recently purchased an electric tea kettle that I absolutely adore. I’m lazy by nature, so I have switched to stuffing tea bags for the loose teas to save on clean-up and disposal with other strainers.

I love smokey teas, non-bitter, not overly astringent, strong tea background mixed with flavored teas, no artificial sweetener tastes, balanced florals IF there must be a floral. I used to love spice, but it has to be done right. A former chai fan – now it reminds me of colored pencils. Cinnamon sounds good but so many teas have it artificial or odd tasting. Same goes for chocolate, some things have to be done just right to work.

Very picky with anything Roobios, and Darjeeling/Oolong are hit or miss depending on the blend and my taste buds. Mint works in a mood but I’m not a big fan. Gravitate toward good name blends and fall themes when doing yet more sampler orders.

I like adding a cube of sugar to almost all teas, not usually milks. I don’t like stevia or any artificial sweetener taste. I adore honey, but to me it doesn’t suit tea unless I have a sore throat as both the tea and the honey change their flavor profile quite a bit if I mix them.
