Ummm…

It’s like a switch flips in my head this time of year. It’s not anywhere close to getting cold out, really, but there is something there, all the same. Maybe the feeling of change?

Whatever it was, pumpkin tea sounded about right for me yesterday morning. I drank it without milk or sugar, and it was like coming home. A huge reset button, if you will – it’s almost time for the holidays and my birthday, time for endings.

This is still a perfect pumpkin puree with a hint of spice tea. I like being able to taste the pumpkin so front and center…usually it gets so drowned out with cinnamon and nutmeg or whatever else makes up the blend. This is fall in a cup. Still as tasty as it was on day one!

I know exactly what you mean by the feeling of autumn coming, it hit for me last week, when it was still around +26 C outside haha.

I have come to the point (as of October 2014) where quality in tea is more important than quantity. Especially because I’m a seasonal tea drinker where hot tea is concerned, and a SLOW one to boot. I generally don’t resteep only because I’d be here all day if I did, though I do break out a gaiwan from time to time.

I adore French teas in practically every iteration, Japanese Sencha (specifically from the Uji region, as they offer the most seaweed flavor), and Dan Cong oolongs. I am trying to focus on plain teas and so companies like Verdant, Upton, and Butiki are on my favorites list.

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
