If you live in the Northern Hemisphere then you know that there’s nothing like taking a drive out into the country to look at the fall leaves in their vibrant autumn colors. Among the other seasonal offerings farmers turn out in roadside stalls throughout Canada and the US at that time of year, the vegetable that usually garners the most attention are pumpkins. And if you are luck enough to live anywhere near Richmond Ontario you will understand why. You see, it was in Richmond that a Pumpkin aficionado named Alan Eaton recently grew himself a world record breaking 1446 pounder! It that’s not enough to get you to pull off the country road you’re driving down we don’t know what will.
The wonderful thing about Pumpkin is that although most people simply carve them into Jack-O-Lanterns, in the right hands they can be prepared into the most delicately flavored soups, appetizers, main courses and desserts. In fact the inspiration for this tea came from a spicy piece of pie our Master Taster requested seconds and thirds of at a roadside café in the heart of Pumpkin country.
He decided that the unique profile of spiced Pumpkin could be best captured by creating a base blend of high quality black tea. The tantalizing flavor of spiced pumpkin is sure to warm the insides and keep you coming back for more. This is an absolutely amazing tea that harkens to the open road in autumn!
