The rooibos and the pumpkin spices complement each other very well. The creamy taste of the vanilla balances the spice of the rooibos and the spices. There is a subtle sweetness buried in the delicate flavors of this tea. It is warm and comforting and perfect for a chilly fall morning after a pre-dawn bike ride. (Gotta fit the exercise in somewhere.)
Just for fun, I cold brewed some iced tea and it was actually good. Interesting, but enjoyable enough that I did it more than once. The cream flavor and the natural sweetness of the tea are more pronounced.
I will probably buy this tea again next fall and I would certainly recommend it to someone who was looking for a pumpkin tea that had more balance than the normally heavy handed pumpkin spice sort of brews.
