Out of the handful of pumpkin teas I’ve tried this one tastes the most like pumpkin pie. It carries a mushy creaminess, a slightly pungent finish, that makes me think of pumpkin or black tea, and even the sensation of sweet rich whip cream. Are you sure this is vegan?

I don’t get creme brulee as much but it has already succeeded where many other teas have clunked out- creating a convincing pumpkin dessert, both in texture and in taste, without going overboard artificial, and still managing to be tea. Thank you BoxerMama for the sample, and Stacy for all the amazing teas!

Edit: This holds up decently to additional steeping, although the cinnamon is more dominant, and my empty cup has the amazing aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and creamy pumpkin.

You got me thinking about all the different kinds of pie out there: lemon meringue, key lime, apple, blueberry, bumbleberry, strawberry & rhubarb, cherry, blackberry, pecan, coconut, savory pies.. Now I want pie too.

Searching through wikipedia’s archive on different kinds of pie has made me realize there are many, many pies still out there that I have yet to try. I think it’s high time I grab lunch.

Sorry about that :) Lemon meringue is my absolute favorite.

I would love to try a true attempt at lemon meringue tea. Good pie to- I haven’t had any in a very long time.

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I guess I can’t say I’m completely new, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

My tea preferences have changed a lot since joining here. I swore I’d never love black teas, and now they make up some of my favourites, both flavoured and unflavoured. I prefer my green and oolong teas buttery and roasted.

A good Silver Needle is my desert island tea.
