I got last year two 8 oz. tins of the gingerbread and the pumpkin spice. Off and on during the course of the year I would brew some, however, the both taste the same to me no matter how I brewed them. Nothing like gingerbread or pumpkin spice. Is there a particular way people brew this to get the proper flavor?
(I boild spring water w/thermometer to get it to the proper temp. then steep for the 5 mins. listed on the tin...)
P.S. I don't know why I didn't ask before this....
These teas can resemble virtually any flavor imaginable.
I've never had any of the Holiday teas but in my experience with the exception of fruit or vanilla teas which bear a light flavor of what they claim to be most flavored teas are simply not that good in my opinion. So with names like pumpkin spice and gingerbread I see a red flag that says keep away or at least from my perspective of someone who for the most part goes for plain over the flavored teas. If you want better flavored teas I've found that you have to make your own by either adding herbals into the mix or small amounts of fruit juice.
