I received an individually wrapped tea bag of this tea in my November Goodies Box – http://hungryinportland.com/2012/11/25/my-goodies-box-for-november-has-arrived/ – and am finally getting around to trying it now.
For a bagged tea, this is alright. If it were not bagged, but loose leaf, I would say that this is a very good tea, because I like that I can taste the pumpkin flavor, the black tea has a good strength to it and the spices are lively without overwhelming my palate. I just don’t like the bagged part of this tea, I don’t like that I can taste a slight paper taste in my cup. It is not enough to make me dislike the tea, but it is enough for me to wish I wasn’t tasting it. Fortunately, there is enough good tasting elements of this cup that I’m able to overlook the paper-y part.
So it’s alright … but it could be even better without the bag!
