This came in my last Butiki order… yay for new tea orders!

When I opened up the bag it didn’t seem to me that the dried leaf smelled very pumpkin-y at all, but after the tea is brewed you get the flavor. I am certainly picking up the clove and cinnamon notes and having an oolong for the base of this instead of a black tea gives it a nice gentle quality. I might try adding a bit of ginger to this next time around, if there is any I’m not really tasting it.

I liked this a bit better after adding some soymilk to it, so it’s more like a latte and more like a milkshake! I guess this would be more appropriate for fall than the spring weather we are having, but I have definitely enjoyed this and have no doubt I’ll be polishing off the entire bag soon. :)

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
