This weeks tea is Teavana's Pumpkin Spice Brulee Oolong Tea. This is their seasonal tea that they bring out every year, and since it is easily available to most, I decided to add it into my reviews for Fall this year.
I got to first try this tea via the samples that they have at their stores. The samples have A LOT of sugar in them, so if you like the sample version, remember that for when you make it at home, that it will take a lot of sugar (Teavana uses their own rock sugar that they sell.) or a lot of honey to make it taste like it does in the store. The actual taste of the tea has a pumpkin spice caramel taste to it, with a little bit of a vanilla after tone. Its good, not amazing, but a good tea to enjoy hot. The smell of the tea has a deep caramel and spice smell to it.
The look of the loose tea is good. You have the Oolong leaves in there with pumpkin, cinnamon and ginger spices, and cocoa caramel in there as well. It has a great spice smell. Steeping and making the tea was simple, a tea spoon made a great tasting strong cup, that you could then add sugar or honey too to sweeten. The Pumpkin Spice Brulee can be found in stores or online here. It costs $12.98 for 2oz.
