This tea was such a disspointment! It was not the worst tea ever but it was just bland. I was hoping for more spice and flavor.

I’ve had this tea since around Christmas last year but somehow never got around to trying it. Looking at the ratings other people have given it made me nervous, but so far it’s okay. Not nearly as pumpkin flavored as I’d like, but it’s not bad. I do tend to steep black teas for 3 minutes or less because a lot of them can get too bitter for me, and that seemed to work for me. I’ll definitely try this one again; I think using more leaves and maybe adding a little milk or sugar would help the flavors come out more.
I’ve had pumpkin spice teas before, and this does not taste like pumpkins or spice.
The pumpkin flavor is nonexistent, as is the spices; what we do have is sub-par black tea with a bland spice somewhere.
It also has a strange aftertaste that gives off a vague banana cream pie flavor, which is very weird.
There is a bit of creaminess to the flavor, but because it’s called pumpkin spice, this tea is a real disappointment.
Oh pumpkin spice. Well I will give you this. If you were just called spice tea I wouldn’t have to rate you so poorly. Because lightly spicy you are. But pumpkin? Where is the pumpkin? I’m afraid of steeping it for much longer and making it bitter. There is just the faintest pumpkin note. Enough to let me know what I’m missing.
I will not give up so easily and I’ll experiment with milk and sugar but I’m disappointed for now.
I got very excited about the idea of this tea, but unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. There’s something slightly off about the pumpkin flavor of this tea- possibly the issue is that it tastes more like squash and less like pumpkin pie. The spice notes were very faint. This is not a tea I would repurchase.
