This is the last of the teas from the Magic Potions sampler, and is a blend of Adagio’s Pumpkin Spice, Vanilla, and Caramel with (apparently) added apple pieces. I wasn’t expecting a lot, for some reason, but I was actually pretty impressed with this one. It has a nice, soft pumpkin spice flavour – although more spice than pumpkin, as is usually the way. The clove and cinnamon dominate, but in a pleasing way – they’re not jarring or out of place. The vanilla and caramel help, I think – they’re very smooth and creamy, and they help to give the overall profile a bit of a lift. They certainly add a sweetness that would otherwise be lacking. I can’t taste much in the way of apple, but that’s a pretty minor complaint.
I like this one. It makes for a really enjoyable autumnal cup, and is a nice twist on plain pumpkin spice. I have a feeling it would make a decent latte, but at the moment I’m happy with it just as it is!
