Many thanks to Jaime for this tea!!!!

FINALLY a pumpkin tea that does not taste as if I am drinking a Yankee Candle. The spices (including the ginger) are subtle, authentic, and delicious, and I taste pumpkin. Actual! Pumpkin! The tea is second fiddle to all this, but I like it that way. It plays a good supporting role to the cozy, nostalgic, and sweet pumpkin and spices. A little sugar and a splash of milk make it the world’s best treat on a long holiday weekend.

Thank you once again Jaime!!! I don’t have a World Market near me, so you truly gave me a special experience :) :) :) I am looking forward to another huge mug of this from your generous sample :)

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
