|"The tea has a sweet flavor not all that different from pumpkin pie. The spiciness is not overwhelming and complements, rather than overpowers, the pumpkin flavor."|
When I prepared this tea, I noticed two things. First, the pumpkin flavor is very much present. The tea has a sweet flavor not all that different from pumpkin pie. The spiciness is not overwhelming and complements, rather than overpowers, the pumpkin flavor. The second thing I noticed was that the tea was a little thin in the body. This surprised me considering that I added a decent amount of leaves for the volume of water I was using. The result was a watery-tasting tea, although that is something that can be easily remedied by using more tea leaves in future brewings...and this is something I would recommend.
This tea turned out to be very enjoyable, more so than I expected based on my previous experiences with other pumpkin teas. This is an ideal autumn and fall tea, and also an ideal dessert tea. Milk and sugar are not necessary, but either or both could be added to enhance the dessert quality of this tea. I personally wouldn't see myself drinking this tea out of season, but for those that live in colder areas, this could be a decent year-round tea.
