I ordered this in a 50g pack, which I’ve not come close to finishing, and have since received several free samples of it. I want to like it more than I do, but I find all I taste is sugar and a dull China black tea. Am I not brewing it strong enough? I don’t taste anything pumpkin pie-ish, either, just more sweetness. It tastes — to me — almost as though the tea has been much stronger and assertive but eventually got whittled down by committee until it became inoffensive. No spice kick, either. A calm and gentle chai, just not to my taste.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE. New novel this March called THIS MARLOWE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Floral oolong and complex black teas are my favourites.
