I had a sample of this one in the store and it was amazing. I knew I had to pick some up. It’s not a BAD tea, but it’s not the best. It’s a good novice tea drinker tea, I think, because on the flat of your tongue it’s a pretty simple pumpkin spice-y fall drink, a little bit sweet, relatively creamy and nice going down, along with a rather nice aftertaste.
If you pay enough attention to the flavours, however, you’re going to get something pretty hard and bitter. On the sides of the tongue it tastes a bit like that one time you crunched on a chunk of cinnamon, thinking it was going to be sweet and cinnamony rather than being about as painful as crunching on pepper. That taste fades with a bit of time but it’s pretty disrupting of the experience of the rest of the tea. It’s rather like a great song with a music video from the Twilight movies. Just don’t pay attention too much and it won’t be ruined for you.
