Thanks to Dexter for this sample!
This smells like holiday spices – it takes me to Christmas, with sweetness, cinnamon, vanilla, and maybe all spice.
On the palette it’s actually very dry – none of the sweet smell translates to sweetness on the tongue, except right at the very end of the finish, and then only subtly. There’s a hint of bitterness from the black tea base, but a nice, round pumpkiny flavour to balance it out. Hints of cream and butter are also there.
A bit of sugar in the second half of my cup really pulls together the pumpkin pie impressions, and I’m really, really enjoying it now.
I was hoping to get a good second steep out of this cup but alas, the second cup isn’t very good. I added milk and sugar and I’m not getting much other flavours besides this weird metallic taste.
Flavors: Butter, Cinnamon, Cookie, Cream, Pumpkin, Vanilla
