this tisane exceeded my expectations. I thought I’d like it (I mean, I do enjoy most of Frank’s blends, and he seems to really bring it when it comes to honeybush), but I didn’t think I’d like it quite as much as I did.

I thought that the ginger would be stronger in this blend than it is, given the name of it. The ginger does stand out, but it’s not all about the ginger, nor does the ginger overpower the other flavor profiles. There is just enough ginger to give the cup some zing without it going overboard.

Cinnamon is tasted, and so is pumpkin and the creamy notes of cream cheese. The tangy notes of the cream cheese also come through. I didn’t get a lot of “buttery” pastry like flavors, but I found that the nutty tones of the honeybush seemed to give it a little bit of crust flavor that I was wanting.

A really good blend.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
