Halloween has just passed and Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. What better way to get in the mood than with pumpkin pie in a cup? That’s exactly what this tea tasted like. It had just the right amount of spice and a pleasant earthiness. I found it a little too astringent so I will probably steep for closer to three minutes next time. This is a perfect chilly weather tea and a great alternative to chai. I really enjoyed it after battling our first snow storm of the season here in New Jersey. I do wish that I knew what “exotic spices” were used. Cinnamon and clove are the fairly obvious choices but I always like to know what I’m drinking. That minor complaint aside, I would definitely recommend this tea.
