I got this in my Christmas Stocking (yep, I bought this one too, and stuffed it in my own stocking. Sad … but true) This is the second time I’ve tried it, the first time was less successful. I wasn’t getting a whole lot of pumpkin or caramel in the sip, just spices and bitterness. It wasn’t bad … exactly, but, it wasn’t as pleasant a cup as I hoped for. This time, it’s better. I found that a splash of milk really improves the taste here. the caramel is accented, the pumpkin comes out a little more, and the spices are not as prominent, but instead provide pleasing background notes to the caramel and pumpkin flavors. It’s not as good as 52Teas Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake … of course, but, it is certainly enjoyable, and this one has a bit more of a spiced taste to it than the cheesecake version.

Don’t feel bad – I told my hubby a tea to stuff in my stocking – he almost forgot about it too LOL

The only way I am given teas by anyone in my family … is if I buy it for them to give to me. LOL Like I’ve said before, they all have this crazy notion that I have enough tea. AS IF!

wait that concept exists? …enough tea?

LiberTEAS

@Jackie: Well, the concept has been proposed by my family, but I have rejected the notion, because it simply makes no sense. It’s an oxymoron.

I’m so lucky my family hasn’t decided on this ‘enough tea’ concept yet. My sister even gave me a subscription to Amoda this Xmas without my even suggesting tea at all (I told her I wanted the Avengers DVD).

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
