From my Sips By box for November. Also a sipdown.
This tea smells so amazing in the pouch, creamy and pumpkin-y and luscious. I was so excited for it! Even steeped up, it smelled delicious. I didn’t approve of the mini white chocolate chips, but I was willing to forgive.
Sadly, it’s quite bland. For this second mug, I overleafed by quite a bit in an attempt to get more flavor. Unfortunately, it didn’t seem to help much. There’s some very mild spicing, mostly clove and a bit of nutmeg. There’s also a tiny bit of cream in the background. But mostly it tastes like a musty base tea. And my first cup, with a normal (for me) amount of leaf, tasted like mildly spiced water.
So disappointing after the lovely smell… Ah well, it joins the ranks of many other underwhelming pumpkin spice teas.
