Thursday Tea Time

This week - Celestial Seasonings Sweet Harvest Pumpkin

Cost:  $3.29 at Whole Foods, $2.49 at Super Target.
Number of teabags:  20
Caffeine:  Yes
Type of tea:   Black
Steeping time:  5 minutes
Add ins:  Just a splash of Coffee Mate's Natural Bliss Sweet Cream
Teabag fragrance:  Nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon
Ingredients:  Black Tea, Cinnamon, Ginger, Roasted Chicory, Natural Pumpkin Flavor with other natural Flavors (Soy Lecithin), Luo Han Guo, Cloves, Nutmeg, Natural Sweetener (Stevia Extract) and Pumpkin
Opinion:  Meh, but a little bit better than OK.  Would I buy another box?  No.  The bar was set pretty high with last week's Twinings Pumpkin Spice Chai. It had an herbal taste and was also really sweet, oddly. You definitely do not need to add any sweetener.   I did like the saying on the box - "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower" ~Albert Camus
