EDIT: UPDATED FORMULA: it is perfect now. Spiced, with the deep undertones you expect out of a pumpkin spice blend. While the previous one tasted like weird banana and the spices got lost, this version is all spice and no banana. It isn't a chai flavored spice, either - like, I know it's the same basic composition as a chai, but it distinctly tastes different, and it's lovely. Will be buying a big bag to stock up as soon as payday rolls in. -- This tea was shockingly underwhelming for me. I am normally a huge fan of pumpkin spice things - like, one of those people who get all upset after about December 1st when all the pumpkin stuff starts to go away. This, did not taste like pumpkin spice to me. I mean, maybe pumpkin - but it's hard to define this flavor as pumpkin, either, really, and it reminds me more of banana which is not what I was expecting to get - and there was certainly not any spice? I can see the ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom pieces in the tea itself, but once it's steeped it doesn't exist in flavor. The first cup, I thought I hadn't steeped it long enough, because I was in a hurry to drink it. The second cup I left for almost a half hour. It's not bitter, or anything - the tea itself does steep very nice and smooth - but it's just... kind of 'meh'? Drinkable, and if I was in the mood for banana, it'd be great, but it's not pumpkin spice as I expected it to be. I'll probably use the rest of this up, but unless there's a formula change I don't know it'll be a repeat order. (10 mins @ 200°F)

I was already like 99% sure I would love this before I even got any, and so I got a large bag right away. ...and I was super right. This is now my nighttime tea of choice - it s refreshing because of the citrus/mint flavor, but soothing because of the cream/vanilla type flavor. I have also tried it with a splash of orange juice which was amazing, and added cinnamon to another cup which was also amazing. So, basically, this will probably be a regular purchase for me. I *do* steep it for a very , very long time, as I like extra flavor out of my herbal teas - but it s also good with a more 'normal' steep time. (>10 mins @ 212°F)

I'm not usually a pina colada fan (I like pineapple and coconut a lot, just.... separately) - so I was unsure what I would think of this one. It came in one of my CommuniTEA packages, so I got to try it - and it's actually really really nice. Maybe it's because the flavors aren't like intentionally over-hyped up, like they sometimes can be - it's just a really nice tropical tea. I had it warm (by the end it was room temp.) and it was nice, but I imagine this as an iced tea would be brilliant, and I might have to throw some into my next order.

The flavors of this are really good - the only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because, since it's a white tea, I can't steep it long enough to really get the full force of the flavor without making it bitter. But it is really nice! I only had a single portion sample, so I cannot make an iced batch, but I might order a lil sample for that purpose later on - that might indeed improve it!

It smells great as soon as you open it. It tastes great! Would make a lovely iced tea! The problem I have with it is that it physically makes me ill, because apparently mate and I do not get along. I might still drink it anyway. It's really nice.
