Second slice of pie this morning, second steep of this tea.

It is surprisingly richer in flavor than the first steep, which makes me wonder why that is, as it is the same tea leaves from the first steep.

The pumpkin and spices are brighter, the pie flavor is more prominent.

It’s strange, but I like odd surprises.

OK, so I accepted that this tea will not be as spicy as your typical chai. Upon that, this is quite a tea to start your morning. Despite the increasing loss of spice and pie flavor, the pumpkin has kept it’s consistency in every steep, making this acceptable.

The creamy flavor of pie has come into its own now that it has been steeped more in a more open space, I feel the taste has time to breathe as it is cooling, and stays consistent throughout the glass.

Something special I might add, as I finish the first cup, the last few sips reward me with a sweet and buttery flavor.

This tea is fantastic!

The flavor is quite relaxing when you are in the middle of a hectic day.

The creamy goodness of pie is a joy to sink into between urgent inquiries and phone calls, the coconut drifting you away to relaxing tropical places.

Not as spicy as the first time, nor as much pumpkin.

It’s odd, but the pumpkin and the pie are there, only separated, and it doesn’t work at all.

Quite disappointing, as the first steep gave quite a surprise.

I’m really liking steeping this tea in a smaller cup, the creamy flavor is stronger and lasts longer, and I think because it has more room to breathe, the coconut is brighter as well.

I find I am drinking this a lot, so I really should buy more of this amazing blend.

Steeped in a smaller cup, I usually steep in my Teavana 16oz travel tumbler but it shattered so I am forced to make smaller amounts in smaller equipment until my goto is replaced.

Smaller seems to bring out more of the creamy flavor of this tea, and also seems to blend the subtle coconut really well.

I’m kind of wanting to make this into a latte with whipped cream to see how it would taste.

When we had the tea bar, we sold this one a lot as an iced tea latte. It’s REALLY good that way. I’m glad you are enjoying our teas.

That sounds like an even better idea, I just started getting into iced tea lattes. I hope to buy more of this wonderful delicious blend.

This tea is surprisingly spicy. From the aroma opening the bag to sipping, I can taste the prominent cloves and cinnamon.

The pumpkin is a subtle and smooth underlying flavor over the black tea, complimenting the taste instead of feeling overwhelmed by the spices.

This is a great tea, very surprising as I was expecting a typical pumpkin pie flavor.

More tea leaves bring a richer flavor, much creamier with an increasing coconut taste.

The first steep I had used about a teaspoon, but this time I had made it a heaping teaspoon.

As autumn transitions to winter, this tea is one of few things that is keeping me from going insane waiting for autumn to end.

It is still sweet and spicy as ever, the colorfully bright citrus flavors dance as my mind drifts from the miserable rainy weather to late spring of this year in Chicago when I first sampled this blend.
