Well it’s getting to be that time of year. Children are back in school, the mornings are a bit darker and cooler. For some, this is cause for mourning. The end of summer. For me, it’s always a welcome time. I quite like autumn. The cooler weather, the changing of the leaves, the time of harvest. I’ve had this tea for a year now, bought it last September from Murchie’s. It’s been a nice autumn touchpoint when I needed it throughout the year. There’s a lovely spiced aroma to it with a prominent pumpkin flourish. Yet, I don’t find this tea as artificial tasting as so many of the pumpkin spice offerings out there. It’s not too sweet and actually does make quite a lovely breakfast tea. Autumn is just around the corner, and I’m welcoming it in, sip by sip by this morning.

I’m a mid-thirties tea loving guy on the West Coast of Canada. Only really got into tea in the last 6 years largely because my exposure to tea was always bagged rather than loose before that. It wasn’t long for me to become hooked with loose leaf tea though.

My favourites are fruity black teas, chocolate and dessert teas and fruit/nut blends.

Other interests include films, meditation, reading, writing and computer games.

Working on living healthier and sweet teas are a nice alternative to full desserts and other sugary snacks and drinks for me.

I only rate teas once and use the following spectrum:
100 – Only one tea receive this from me. It’s that good.
95 – Only three teas receive this from me. They are that good.
90-94 – These are top rated teas for me but fall just short of my top 4 or ultimate tier teas.
80-89 – Very pleasant, enjoyable. Would definitely purchase again but wouldn’t necessarily rush out for it.
70-79 – Decent teas. They had their charm while they lasted but I’m undecided about buying them again.
60-69 – Alright teas. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing amazing either. Unless it’s on sale, I won’t buy again.
50-59 – Meh, I can take or leave this. There’s something about it that borders on dislike for me.
40-49 – Sorry this one’s just not for me.
30-39 – Definitely not for me. Wasn’t able to finish it.
0-29 – How dare they call this “tea”.
