I had this last night with pumpkin ice cream, so that definitely influenced the flavor. ;) But I did have a few sips before digging into the ice cream. I really like this tea. The pumpkin flavor is definitely there, and I like the spiciness. Nutmeg and black pepper seemed to be the predominant spices. I’m not sure this tea actually contains pepper, so maybe it is the clove that I’m tasting? Pepper flavor might sound a bit odd, but I thought it was a nice balance to the sweet pumpkin flavor (and all the sugar I added to my cup).
