Okay, confession time. Whenever I brew up a pumpkin tea, I use the mug that’s shaped and painted to look like a pumpkin. Now that that dorkiness is over…

Received this as a sample with my order. :) Thankyou!

This tea is quite scrumptious. Originally I steeped to parameters, but I wanted it to taste stronger, so I threw the infuser back into the cup, and am quite pleased with the result!

Very nice and pumpkin-y, and the amount of spice is juuuuust right. :) Without milk, you get more of a pumpkin SPICE drink, or with milk the spices are softened quite a bit and you then get CREAMY pumpkin drink. Both are delicious, not sure which I prefer.

The best part about this tea is that it’s not overly sweet. The black tea base is very prominent, and tastes very natural. Hard to believe that this is flavored! Don’t get me wrong though, the pumpkin and the spices are very taste-able, but this is clearly TEA which makes me very happy. :)

Overall, this is a MUST for any pumpkin lovers. :D

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
