The first time I had a sample of this, it was extremely old before I tried it, and something weird had happened to it because it was defintiely off. So I requested a sample of it from MissB to try again, and she graciously obliged. Thanks!

This is definitely a lot better than last time. The spices are light but present (cinnamon and nutmeg for sure), and I do get a nice pumpkin flavor. As a pumpkin spice tea, it’s pretty good. Unfortunately, I don’t really get much “creme brulee” flavor, so I’ve dinged the rating a bit. I would expect creamy custard and some caramelization, but I would also expect that do be difficult in a tea. Anyway, glad to get to try this one again!

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
