I don’t drink as much oolong as I would like, because I feel as if I really ought to savor it. And usually I don’t have a lot of time for savoring. This tea is amazing. It has wonderful tropical & floral notes. I even oversteeped it (ha not unusual) but it is fabulous. A little strong, maybe, but very good. And I love how my teapot looks like a kelp forest when I’m brewing it. From prior experience I will say that steeps 2 and 3 will be the best… assuming I don’t forget about it and leave it for 30 minutes. Ahem.
Oh pumpkin spice. Well I will give you this. If you were just called spice tea I wouldn’t have to rate you so poorly. Because lightly spicy you are. But pumpkin? Where is the pumpkin? I’m afraid of steeping it for much longer and making it bitter. There is just the faintest pumpkin note. Enough to let me know what I’m missing.
I will not give up so easily and I’ll experiment with milk and sugar but I’m disappointed for now.
I got very excited about the idea of this tea, but unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. There’s something slightly off about the pumpkin flavor of this tea- possibly the issue is that it tastes more like squash and less like pumpkin pie. The spice notes were very faint. This is not a tea I would repurchase.
