Tried the tea as a latte first in the shop, loved it, and brought a 50g bag of it home. Lucky I decided to do that, as apparently they only prepare this blend around Cranberry Festival and I got pretty much the last of it.

Anyway, first off, the ‘pumpkin’ part is misleading. I honestly don’t taste any note of pumpkin at all. But the comforting spicy cloves and cinnamon taste is delicious enough that I forgive it. :)

This tea is especially great with a little bit of brown sugar and a splash of milk. Or if you want a real treat, don’t be afraid to latte it with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
