Steepster traveling teabox tea!

I didn’t really know what I was expecting, it sounded nice (who doesn’t like pumpkin pie?) and I figured it was worth a try.

So after the nice spicy scent of the steeped tea…I got a mouthful of bitter tea water.

Disappointing.

I certainly could have used to hot of water or steeped too long (I try to follow package directions the first go round). since I only get one go at each TTB tea I’ll have to wait until someone else takes a crack at it.

Post-Steep Additives: lactose free fat free milk, didn’t help

Preparation

A lot of these pumpkin teas seem to be turning out to be busts. So disappointing.

@Wombatgirl this reminds me of my October quest for a good pumpkin beer, we tried many and they were all busts, perhaps pumpkin is a hard flavor?

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
