Gah, so many fall teas to try!

The dry leaf smells amazing. Seriously, I could make an air freshener out of this. Hang a little bag of it from my rearview mirror, toss a little sachet into the sock drawer… the possibilities are endless! (Ok, not really. Tea is too expensive to waste it like that.)

Smells great while steeping, too. Like liquid autumn. But on to the tasting! Ooohh, pumpkin. Not “pumpkin spice” (whatever that may be), but real, actual pumpkin. And I’m tasting a little something, which if I concentrate on, reminds me of roasted veggies with cinnamon & other warm spices. (If you haven’t tried roasted root vegetables with cinnamon, you are seriously missing out.) *Checks ingredients: I guess that would be the squash! Score!

Added a little bit of milk to the end of the cup, just to try it. It’s super yummy, but I think I like it just as much plain. Seriously, this tea is great.

Bio

A tea fanatic who works in the tech sector, I purchase most of my tea online. The numerical ratings are to help me remember which teas I should re-order. 85+ means it’s worth a re-purchase. (If I ever get through all of the new ones I want to try!)

It’s pretty obvious from my tealog, but I have special place in my heart for flavored blacks and good rooibos. I also love oolongs, but apparently have expensive taste in that area, so I don’t purchase them too often. Learning to appreciate green tea, but not a fan of overly vegetal ones. Whites make a great iced tea.

I love to try new teas and will sample most anything once. Although I’ll usually pass on Earl Grey or super floral blends.

I drink my tea with no additions, unless otherwise noted in the review.
