Pumpkin Pie. How do you improve upon this classic Thanksgiving dessert? Add chocolate, of course!
This is really yummy. I love that I taste pumpkin prominently in this cup – so often it seems that pumpkin flavor is elusive at best with some pumpkin pie flavored teas. But here, the pumpkin is strong – but not so strong that it is all I taste. I also taste a touch of pumpkin pie spice, and CHOCOLATE! And after a few minutes of letting the tea cool slightly, I also notice just a hint of buttery pie crust … yum!
And while the flavor of the black tea is a little less prominent than I’d like it to be for a flavored black tea, this is still really so yummy! I do taste the tea, but it IS a bit obscured by the stronger flavors of pumpkin, spice, and chocolate.
Interestingly, the way the spices are put together in this blend, it sort of gives the chocolate a sort of chocolate liqueur type of taste … as if this chocolate pumpkin pie were made using a chocolate liqueur like Godiva’s Chocolate Liqueur. I’m not big on alcoholic beverages – but that stuff is AMAZING! – and I love how that sort of flavor sort of comes alive in this cup for me. It’s like having some Godiva’s without having to pay the price tag of it. Plus, it’s in a much more consumable format for me – TEA!
I really am enjoying this tea. An excellent tea for this time of year … or any time of year really!
