I have came across so many ‘pumpkin pie’ etc. teas that have no pumpkin in them whatsoever and are actually just a blend of spices. I am soo happy that this one has real pumpkin flavour in it! Dry, the tea smells good. Spicy, but not particularly pumpkin-y. After steeping for three minutes as per recommendations, this tea actually smells exactly like warm pumpkin punch! Absolutely no bitterness, just a smooth, buttery spices pumpkin taste which is just beautiful. Seriously. I didn’t think I would like this as much as I do, but I am definitely a fan! This is a bit of a late note, and I can’t quite remember exactly what it tasted like with different additives, but that just means I have an excuse to sit and drink it all day tomorrow in the name of a better review.
