Recent Tasting Notes
Well, I am much chagrined! I feel I was very unfair in my previous tasting note on this tea. This time I went a little lighter on the amount of leaf I used and it is much better. It still doesn’t have a particularly strong pumpkin flavor but it is very enjoyable. Luckily have have enough for several more pots. The rooibos is a bit lighter without the woodsiness getting overwhelming.
Note to self: Even though it said 1-2 tsp on the directions, stick to 1 tsp. :)
Another tea going into the Santea Claus TTB. I just have to try them before they go on their way. Mild pumpkin flavor. I was a little afraid it would be very chai like with the spices listed but luckily it isn’t it. It’s a very pleasant melange of favors. I leafed a 2 tsp per cup and steeped for 9 min. and still felt it could have been a bit stronger. I added a little vanilla stevia and it brought out the pumpkin flavor( for me). I guess I thought there would be a little more pumpkin .
