MY REVIEW BEGINS HERE

 

Here are my thoughts on this tea:

A very slight vanilla scent as I kept waiting for the pumpkin. It’s a medium bodied tea with a medium amber liqueur.   This tea reminds me more of a chai then pumpkin and I’d like to see a more pumpkin flavor involved.

What I liked:

I can’t complain about a chai tea and there is a slight minty/vanilla scent to it. It’s interesting.

What I did not like:

I don’t taste much if any pumpkin flavor.
