Sweet Harvest Pumpkin Tea - Pumpkin 2012 Haul

Sweet Harvest Pumpkin Tea -Wegman’s : Cherry Hill, NJ

I am collecting all of my pumpkin posts from last year and re-posting them here on Blogger to make a comprehensive collection. Here is
the original Tumblr post. 

I am not the biggest tea drinker out there, but while I was at the shop I went to see what was available and I noticed this new pumpkin tea!
The box is bright and eye catching. The box-art features a scarecrow driving a tractor through a pumpkin field. I love the colors! The rich blue sky compliments the orange pumpkins and yellow trees quite nicely. It looks like a perfect fall day!
These tea bags smell very spiced, but the initial tea leaf-smell overpowers any pumpkin notes. (I can smell nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger faintly.) Brewed, the tea has a stronger pumpkin and pumpkin-pie-spice smell (I also detect a hint of apple) and it takes on a nice caramel color. 

This tea isn’t strongly pumpkin flavored, but it is very much a fall flavor palette. I think this tea is great for chilly fall days and I find myself drinking it without any additions. (No cream or sugar)

On a pumpkin-y scale of 1-5
(5 being extremely pumpkin-y) I would rate this a 1.5, but it is a great tea for fall that I really enjoy.
