52Teas Loose Leaf Green Tea 'Pumpkin Toffee Dragon well'

Tea Information:
Tea: Pumpkin Toffee Dragonwell
Type: Green Tea
Packaging: Loose Leaf
Company: 52Teas
Purchase: Here
Description: This week’s tea of the week tastes like rich pumpkin pie with a crust made entirely of sweet, delicious toffee. I don’t know if anyone could really make a pie like that, but I would love to try one. In the meantime, I’m going to continue enjoying rich sips of this yummy tea. The Dragonwell green tea adds just the right notes of sweet nuttiness to compliment the toffee and contrast with the pumpkin. All in all, this is a really special treat you’ll love serving to your guests, if you’re generous enough to share.
