Yes, I drove an hour (both ways) yesterday to pick up this tea and the other Republic of Tea seasonal exclusives at World Market. I’ve been craving this and the other 2 since I heard about their existence (thanks, Meghann). I lucked out, because this was the last tin of this one that the store had.

The dominant taste is ginger, followed by a rich, baked-pumpkin taste. I can also taste the black tea, and a hint of the cinnamon. It definitely screams “fall” and nearly begs you to sip some in front of a fire on a gloomy day. I see myself going through this tin fairly quickly; I’ll probably be picking up another tin before this season is over. I brewed this cup at 3 minutes (my new standard for brewing new black teas), but will try at 5 minutes and see what happens.

Now I am craving pumpkin pie… hmm I wonder how pumpkin ginger pie would taste… I know its an ingredient in pumpkin pie spice, but I wonder if you just used ginger and and a bit of cinnamon to flavor it how it would come out… you could even add a little concentrated black tea…

I love pumpkin pie, and I do usually throw some extra ginger in whenever I make it. Never thought of adding concentrated black tea…maybe some instant powdered so that the pie isn’t too runny? Personally, I think I’ll just sip this instead of fooling with making a pie. It’s a more than acceptable pie substitute…I’m going to try it as a latte tomorrow!

Yum! I hope I can find some next week when I am able to make the trip. I totally forgot about these teas. The maple pecan and this one sound too good to miss. Glad to hear this was quite the treat!

The maple pecan smells the best out of all 3 of them! I was going to try it first, but changed my mind at the last minute. I’ll probably have some of the chocolate ginger red tonight.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
