Legit tastes like the title implies - it s got the smokey flavor, it s got the chocolate-marshmallow thing going on, it s great. I really like this one steeped a little extra strong, and with more cream than usual - that way you don t lose any flavor, but you get extra creaminess. Could probably also use 1/2 heavy cream instead of your usual creamer, for the same effect. Also great topped with whipped cream. Come winter I m going to make this into a hot chocolate or so help me.

Lovely and warm flavor. If you like cinnamon this is the tea! Great with milk/cream & sugar, very cozy tea.

This is a very rich and deep fruity blend. Most of the fruity herbal blends, I prefer iced, but this one is better warm, to me. I also enjoyed it with a cinnamon stick thrown in to steep, for a little extra flavor.

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)

This sampler was a really good value for the money. Matcha Honey: I honestly just ate this one out of the jar over the course of two weeks. Tastes very much like good sweet matcha. Green Tea Honey: This one had an odd smell?? But tasted great, by itself and in teas. A bit citrusy, almost tangy but not quite. Black Tea Honey: Perfect for a black tea (especially in iced black tea, added pre-chilling), leans towards the lighter and citrusy notes of black teas (not so great with the more malty ones, though not *bad* with that either). Will definitely get more of these honeys, either in a pack like this again or individually.

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)
