drank Pumpkin Spice by Adagio Teas

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.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec
Cofftea

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!:)
