I tried this before, just brewed western-style, and it was ok but not great. So this time I decided to do it the David’s Tea recommended way: simmered on the stove. 1 cup each of milk and water, 6g (two generous teaspoons) of tea, 2 tsp of brown sugar (I used organic sucanat because… it was there). Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer. I ended up simmering for about 7min before taking it off the heat and straining into a mug.

Okay. This is pretty damn delicious. It really does smell like pumpkin pie, and with the creaminess of the milk and sweetness of sugar, the taste matches the aroma much better. I’m still getting a very faint plasticky aftertaste on some sips, which I suspect is from those cute little pumpkin candies. I’ll be pulling those out before brewing this again. How creepy is it that several of them were still intact (soggy, but intact) after 7min of simmering? Just, no. Anyway, my issues with the decorative candies aside, this was yummy. :)
