First tea from the return of the Great Canadian TTB!
Having this one because I need a herbal as it is getting close to bed time. This is the first one I could find in the box. It is in tea bag form. It smells quite nice. Reminds me of store bought pumpkin pie, still delicious but not the same as homemade pumpkin pie. Definitely cinnamon and nutmeg smelling. I get a whiff of brown sugar every so often.
I am finding the taste to be quite flat. I am getting some sweetness but it is not bright, it is more of a dull sweetness. I get lots of cinnamon and some nutmeg. There is the slightest hint of pumpkin. There is a quite fleeting moment of astringency at the end of the sip but it disappears before you even know it is there. The brown sugar smell has morphed into the vanilla – I have never had Madagascar vanilla that I know of, but it seems like it would have a distinct taste. There is also a bit of medicinal rooibos taste.
I think this is a good herbal. A bit dull but I think I could have fancied it up with some cream and sugar.
