drank Pumpkin Spice by Harney & Sons
752 tasting notes

Went to the football game straight from work. Spent the next few hours watching out team go out to a 27-11 lead and end up loosing in OT. Really late when I got home, but there were TEA PACKAGES outside my door. Yay, I got tea four days in a row!!! One of the packages was my swap from akgrowngirl. Thank you!!
I’m cold and I’m cranky but I have new Pumpkin Tea to try (ok seriously I have a few new pumpkin teas to try). This seemed to be the obvious choice.
Generally speaking, I really like Harney & Sons. I’m trying to like pumpkin tea, I keep trying them. I should like them, but somehow most seem to disappoint.
This is not on my favorite list. This isn’t pumpkin spice, it’s some vague melon/pumpkin/fruit flavor that’s downed out by cinnamon. I’m not sure if there is suppose to be other spices in here, but it’s way too heavy on the cinnamon. This might as well just be a cinnamon tea. Sorry Harney this is a miss for me. I’m going to keep looking.
Thanks akgrowngirl for sending me some of this, always enjoying trying new teas, and I get to cross this off my pumpkin quest list.

my daughter swears by david’s teas pumpkin chai, although i haven’t tried it. heh heh….. pumpkin quest. excellent.

Nightshifter

David’s Pumpkin Chai is excellent! At least from what I’ve found so far, it is the quintessential pumpkin tea. I’ve been obsessing over it all week. :)

Dexter

Hey James, Tons of people like Davids Pumpkin Chai – I’m not one of them. For me it tastes artificial. You would have to try for yourself….

Dexter

Sorry Nightshifter… that’s what I love about this site, we all experience teas differently. My current favorite Pumpkin tea is Della Terra Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie, but I still have a few more that I haven’t tried yet.

Nightshifter

Ooo, I will have to try that one Dexter. I love pumpkin!

Nightshifter

Oh no, and now I just placed a Della Terra order to try it! Dexter this is all your fault. :)~

C.S. Lewis – “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

I needed to update my profile. I joined Steepster 03Mar13. I am just amazed at how much my tastes have changed since then.
When I discovered loose leaf tea about a year and half ago, I didn’t know anything other than my local Davids and Teavana/Teaopia. Stumbling onto Steepster CHANGED EVERYTHING.
Hello, my name is Dex I’m a tea addict.
I’ve been through the “I need to try every single tea out there” phase. I really hope the worst of that has passed. I’ve learned enough to know that I only need to try HALF of all the teas out there. LOL
When I started this journey, I was all about the flavored rooibos and fruity tisanes. Don’t get me wrong there is still room for dessert (chocolate/caramel/nutty) Rooibos teas in my cupboard and I still do enjoy them, BUT I am quickly learning to appreciate the some of the straight teas of the world.
Big bold (but not icky)pu’erh is suddenly my favorite, followed by woody/roasted oolongs. I’m just starting to explore straight black teas, and have found some that I really like.
Generally speaking I’m not into greens at all, only like the occasional green oolong, and white teas are just too mild for my tastes (unless they are fruit flavored). I still enjoy really good fruit tisanes, but am now cold steeping them.
I don’t like floral/herbal blends, and mint anything is not on my preferred list.
I am still exploring new teas, adapting to my changing tastes, understanding more every day how little I really know about tea. Ultimately I would love to find approximately 50 teas that I just “can’t live without” and always have them in my cupboard. That might not be practical, but that what I’m searching for. It’s going to be a fun journey.

All in all, I love this site. I’ve met some wonderful people, and have gotten to try some amazing teas because of them. It really restores your faith in humanity when you get a note saying “oh by the way I sent you some tea”. Wonderful, generous, people here.
