75 tasting notes

I don’t want to write a super long review because Steepster seems to be eating my notes :( But if you’re looking for a nice pumpkin spice tea for Autumn I don’t know if you can do any better than this. I think it might be a new flavor this season because it wasn’t in the system and I haven’t heard of it before.
It is incredibly rich tasting, like liquified pumping pie. I’m actually pretty amazed at the depth of flavor here. There is a deep caramel flavor present despite caramel not being listed in the ingredients. I added a dash of unsweetened soy milk and… whoa. Whole ’nother level. Highly recommend trying it with your milk of choice. Definitely one of, if not my absolute favorite flavored tea of all time.

Oh, this tea is really unique. It’s incredibly sweet and tastes and smells exactly like honey. If you were to give some of this to a non-tea drinker, I’m positive they wouldn’t believe you hadn’t added any to it. The liquor is even thick and slightly opaque, like it would be if you had dropped in some honey. Along with the lovely sweet honey there is a bit of butterscotch and a nice malt ending.
Even though it brewed up light compared to my usual preference, I think I’m going to have to pick up more of these soon.
I used 2 pearls for 7oz brewed with 212º water for 3 minutes.

Flavors: Butterscotch, Honey, Malt

My favorite teas are unflavored Chinese blacks, especially Yunnans & Fujians and I’m also partial to strong Irish Breakfast blends. I enjoy other blacks, greens and oolongs as well. I am giving pu-erh a shot, but am not overwhelmed at the moment. Occasionally I also enjoy a nice flavored tea, but prefer a few complementary flavors rather than chocolate covered strawberry marshmallow tiramisu oolong. I never sweeten my teas and only add milk in chai blends.

Likes: Anything roasty, toasty, smoky, or malty. As well as citrus and cream flavors.

Dislikes: Anise/licorice/fennel, stevia, mint & coconut.

Allergies: Peanuts & Tree nuts

I’ve decided to use a simplified rating system in order to keep things consistent.

100- The best tea I have ever tasted. Can’t live without it.

95- Wonderful teas that I drink almost daily, and will always have on hand. Probably the first teas I will recommend and serve to guests.

90- Teas I greatly enjoy and will restock often, though I may not always have them on hand.

80 – Good teas that I may purchase occasionally, or drink when I’m in the mood. Perhaps seasonal teas.

70- Enjoyable teas. I wouldn’t turn down a cup but may have to be in the mood to consider. Probably not a consistent in my cupboard.

60- I finished my cup/sample but wouldn’t purchase, and would turn down a cup if there were any other options.

50- Didn’t finish the cup. Would not drink again if offered a cup.

1- Nothing could make me try this tea again. And it has probably reduced my opinion of the entire company.
