First time trying this. :) So excited! The smell made me even more excited, it smells delish!

Drinking it now, it didn’t disappoint. :) Unlike the Harvest Pumpkin Chai from Infusions, this actually does taste like pumpkin. It has that right cinnamon and clovesy spice that I like.

Since this was my first time trying this, I steeped in the middle of the recommendation (it suggested 4-6, so I went with 5) but I think next time I’ll steep for the 6. While it’s quite tasty, I’m finding myself smacking my lips a bit trying to taste it even more, which is something I’m not used to doing with black tea. But this is an easy fix, and not an actual criticism of the tea itself.

If I could change one thing, it’d be that it’d be nice if you could taste the base a little bit more, but for a yummy pumpkiny treat, this definitely hits the spot. :)

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.
