Why did I think that this one was a herbal? Maybe the original one was? Huh. Well, regardless I was halfway through steeping it a bit late at night and realized my mistake too late. Luckily caffeine doesn’t affect me that much.

I was not really wowed by this. The pumpkin/squash flavor was weak and the spices (cinnamon, predictably) were more prominent. I like to taste actual pumpkin so that’s the main source of my ambivalence. But I will play around with it – and maybe add some sugar next time to see if that makes a difference.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves

Nope, never an herbal. The previous version was also an oolong.

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. "
