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!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
