Taster’s Review:

Autumn is coming!  Autumn is coming!

As I write this, it is one of the warmest, muggiest days of the summer, but, as I sip this tea, my thoughts turn to autumn.  The cool, crisp air and the colors… I want autumn to be here now!

This tea delivers autumn in a teacup.  It has a lightly spiced tone with its hints of cinnamon and ginger.  While these two spices can sometimes be strong and overwhelming, here they provide only a warm, gentle kick.

The black tea is a strong Chinese Hunan tea.  It is a deliciously bright tea with an astringent finish.  It is bold enough to get one going in the morning and provides a solid, robust background for the other flavors of the blend.

The pumpkin flavor seemed a bit lost when I started sipping on this tea, however, as the tea cooled slightly, the pumpkin flavors started to come into focus.  It doesn’t present itself as an overly pumpkin-y taste, but I like the way the pumpkin seems to smoothly glide throughout the sip, offering hints of flavor here and there.

Overall, a very pleasant pumpkin tea.  This is one that you’ll be proud to serve your guests during the upcoming holiday season!
