This smelled fantastic in the bag! I may have brewed it a touch too long. When I first sipped it I was ho hum about it. A little bitter with pumpkin. I added some sugar and the cheesecake taste came out. Added a little more to see what would happen and the cheesecake flavor was even more pronounced with a pumpkin taste lingering. Even with the flavors being more pronounced than the initial few sips, the taste is not a full mouth assault and I kind of like being assaulted by my tea. Oh god! My second steeping I managed to murder with some soy milk. Yuck! I think I need to try this with some real cream. Trying with real cream… nope, that doesn’t work either. I seems like any cream kills the pumpkin flavor. This one is best with just sugar. Unfortunately I have gone through the whole sample now.
