drank Pumpkin Spice by Bigelow
4421 tasting notes

I received an individually wrapped tea bag of this tea in my November Goodies Box – http://hungryinportland.com/2012/11/25/my-goodies-box-for-november-has-arrived/ – and am finally getting around to trying it now.

For a bagged tea, this is alright. If it were not bagged, but loose leaf, I would say that this is a very good tea, because I like that I can taste the pumpkin flavor, the black tea has a good strength to it and the spices are lively without overwhelming my palate. I just don’t like the bagged part of this tea, I don’t like that I can taste a slight paper taste in my cup. It is not enough to make me dislike the tea, but it is enough for me to wish I wasn’t tasting it. Fortunately, there is enough good tasting elements of this cup that I’m able to overlook the paper-y part.

So it’s alright … but it could be even better without the bag!

I’m always keeping an eye out for anything pumpkin flavored when I go to the stores. Wish I could order individual boxes from Bigelow, I want to try this tea.

Ditto—Bigelow website just sells in, what, packages of 6?

Lazey

Yeah, packages of 6 or the combination pack with the other holiday teas.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
