It’s like it was meant to be. I was just exclaiming to my husband how there needed to be a pumpkin spice latte tea equivalent and BAM! Frank offers up this. So like the pumpkin spice-lovin fiend I am I ordered this and anticipated its arrival.

And then it arrived and I eagerly opened it and gave it a sniff and it smelled….kinda like the vanilla caramel chai…uh oh (go and read my review on that one). Hmmm, I don’t know about this.

After 3 days of Matevana (I swear it helps keep migraines at bay so I drink it when I am prone to them) I decided to try this this morning. Per Ashley’s suggestion I was going to add a bit of milk with my go-to brown sugar splenda but alas, my husband and I finished the milk with our caramel frapaccino cupcakes last night.

Got to work and took a sip, praying that it didn’t taste like dirt (again, seriously, go read my caramel vanilla chai review) and…..

Phew! No dirt taste.

But no pumpkin.

Or cheesecake….

What kind of wizardry is this? Not that it was bad but I’m the kind of person who gets upset that her red velvet cake yogurt doesn’t actually have pieces of red velvet cake in it. And just as I was about to let the disappointment settle in…

What’s this?

Pumpkin?

Cheesecake?

Where did you come from?
I don’t know how it does it but, for me, the pumpkin cheesecake taste develops slowly on the tongue about 30 seconds after you swallow.
I’d obviously prefer it to be there from first sip but I wouldn’t kick this tea out of bed (if ya know what I mean ). And the sudden emergence is like a party trick in my mouth. It’s possible that my job is just really that boring, but I’ll take what I can get.

Hello!
I’m Amanda, and I’m new to the world of tea. I got sucked in by a sample at Teavana and have been exploring ever since. I prefer loose tea but will slum it with the occasional, high quality bag.

I live just outside Chicago with my husband and our dog.
