I used 1 tablespoon of dry leaf for 375 ml of water.
Smooth and sweet tasting. I’m really getting a pumpkin-y flavour that reminds me of the stringy stuff when I’m pumpkin carving. There a liqueur-like taste in the background which must be from the caramel. It is a little too alcohol-like for me to enjoy. Clove-nutmeg and maybe cinnamon spice flavour is present. Earthy astringency does not compliment the overall flavour profile very well. Caramel sweetness (reminding me of butterscotch pudding) present in the immediate aftertaste.
I am not detecting much cheesecake in this blend. There may be some subtle notes of it as the tea cools.
I am not a fan of the pumpkin-caramel combination but I believe that this blend did a very good job in capturing the flavours.
