Since this came back in stores this year, I thought I’d celebrate with some I ordered online a few months ago.
I decided to try steep this for six minutes since I was planning on adding soy milk and brown sugar, something I normally don’t do, and I wanted a stronger brew. Letting it steep for this long really brings out the pumpkin. The steeped tea actually smells like the butternut squash I usually bake in the oven with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
And the taste is exquisite too. I feel guilty adding the sugar, but this is creamy pumpkin liquid candy, something that should be served on Thanksgiving. I’ve had a cruddy day involving flakey people and this tea is washing the negativity away.
