Revisiting this tea, and still not impressed. The spice does add to the flavor, but it overpowers the pumpkin, and you just end up with a spicy black tea.
Maybe the spices infuse into the water faster than the tea leaves? 5 1/2 min seems a bit long to me for my personal tastes. Maybe try 200-210 degrees (I don’t completely boil my water cuz it kills the health benefits) for 4-5 min. Hopefully that’ll give you a more even flavor profile. I’ve noticed that over steeping can actually produce a duller, flatter flavor- this is really common w/ Adagio’s whites. Let me know!:)
