I spent 2 days experimenting with this. I really wanted to like it more than I did the first time I tried it… I set out to make it tastier. My quest involved my latte mix (essentially condensed milk and skim milk in 2 to 1 proportion warmed and mixed in a pan), clove, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Today was a good day to get it right, considering it was so miserable… My favorite (and last double wall Bodum) tea cup got broken by someone (no one says who). Also, my cellphone decided to die on me (how did we live without having internet and communication always before!?!?!). The cherry on top was the pile of puppy poo that greeted me when I first got home… I really needed something sweet and tasty!

I brewed myself a cup of this with added spices (cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg) and added a bit (overdid it the first time…) of latte mix. Wow… It was delicious! But, I exaggerated on the amount of sweet milk I added, so, I tried again. Success! The added spice and sweet milk turn it into a creamy smooth pumpkin latte. The flavor is strong enough to stand up against anything so it welcomed the extra spice and milk!

I will surely finish the 100g that I bought, though it didn’t make my superstar tea list as I had hoped it would… I think I will only be drinking this as a latte, so, not an instant winner. Enjoyed it! Not sure I would re-order… Ask me again next fall. : )

I feel the same way about this one. It’s okay, I guess, but nothing spectacular or as amazing as everyone seems to think it is. I’m almost done with my tin from last fall >.<

I still have almost an entire tin to get through…

I cook with mine. It’s tasty when you use it in rice of to boil sausages in or in the liquid part of sweetbreads.

I love tea and have since I was a little girl. Once I could buy my own tea, I began to explore and learn about the extensive and delicious world of tea!

Also, love my French Bulldog (named Sencha…) and my tea oblivious boyfriend. I enjoy ice skating (I am a part time coach), reading, writing, baking, running, and lots of sweets!

My favorite teas tend to be on the sweeter side. Both flavored and plain teas are great to me. Currently going through a flavored tea phase. Enjoying it greatly! : )
