Review of Pumpkin Spice Tea

BadMediocreNot Worth Paying For

This blend did not work for me; although I love the flavor of pumpkin, and can imagine it really working well in a blend with black tea, I found that the pumpkin flavor in this tea was somewhat artificial-seeming...highly estery, and cloying, and also clashing with the other aromas and flavors. I would say the aroma was even suggestive of bubble-gum, not an aroma I like in any context.

The tea, on the other hand, was rich, dark, and deep, a classic Ceylon of good quality. The other spices actually worked well. Although the base tea comes through, it does not mesh well with the pumpkin aroma.

If I were to re-work this tea, I would use a different extract or pumpkin flavoring, or perhaps use whole, dried pumpkin flesh. Pumpkin, as I imagine it, is a deep, rich ingredient, with a subtle flavor...not a fleeting, estery overtone like the pumpkin flavoring added to this tea. As-is, I would not drink this again.
