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.
