As stated before, I love pumpkin, I especially love pumpkin pie, but a close second is pecan pie. I did not know that pumpkin pecan pie is a tradition in the south, and without a doubt, I will have to find myself a piece, but until then, I had this tea.
I had this tea right before the Pumpkin Pie Tea by 52teas.
This tea smelled like pumpkin, but more like when a pumpkin pie filling is completely combined and ready to go into the pie shell. So it had creamier, sweeter smelling leaves and brewed tea. That being said, the tea tasted like sweetened pumpkin, not bitter natural pumpkin, it was a mellowed flavor (this is probably from the pecans) and the cinnamon is definitely present.
I had it hot with some sugar but no milk. Again, I think more sugar would help to sweeten it more (probably more like the pumpkin pecan pie would be) and milk might help to blend the flavors together more for a smoother tea.
Overall, this was a good tea, definitely more like pumpkin pie than just a straight pumpkin tea. I am hoping to pick up my own stash of this to keep on hand :)
