This is my favourite pumpkin tea of those I’ve tried so far. It’s just unbelievably smooth and creamy, and it carries a thick, squash flavour along with mild spicing. I didn’t drink this one at Halloween, but I almost wish I had now. The smell of pumpkin and cinnamon is just so warm and comforting — beautiful!
I gave this one nearly four minutes in boiling water, and added a good splash of milk. The pumpkin is the first flavour to develop, and it tastes very fresh and vegetal. Not in a green tea way, just…like a fresh pumpkin, I guess. The spice complements the pumpkin flavour perfectly, and isn’t at all overwhelming. I can’t identify too much beyond cinnamon, but there are other spice flavours grouping together in the background that give this a mild chai-esque vibe.
The dry leaf is really pretty, too. The pumpkin sprinkles are the cutest thing, and a nice addition even if they don’t contribute anything in terms of taste. What I like most about this is how smooth it tastes. It’s insanely drinkable, and I can see myself coming back to this time and time again over the next few weeks. Truly gorgeous stuff!
