drank Boston Blend by Harney & Sons
1122 tasting notes

Boston! Guys, I did a foolish thing. I ordered a pound of this. A full pound (or, tea pillow, if you will) of this gorgeous, nutty, sweet, autumnal blend.
What can I say. I panicked. There were no smaller sizes available. I needed it. And I remember that last year I ran out ridiculously quickly. Oh tea. Oh, oh, oh tea. You are autumn to me, just as much as pumpkins and sweaters and fallen leaves.

TeaBrat

Hopefully you finish it off someday!

Don’t worry, you will drink it! I love this one.

As a newbie, I thought ordering a pound of something was “tea cool!” Hadn’t learned yet how long it takes to drink that much, especially when you are busy trying other things. A pound is commitment. (But this is a good one to be committed to!)

I feel the same as you, this tea is as much a part of my autumn tradition as pulling the Halloween decorations out of the attic . I love it. It’s a great winter tea, too, so you have lots of time to drink all those cups!

drank Glitter & Gold by DAVIDsTEA
1122 tasting notes

Its been quite a morning. No internet when I woke up, wait times of half an hour on the phone to get someone out here, work, errands, and then a cop pulled me over because my registration is outdated. Damn. I wasn’t ticketed, which is good, but it was somewhat embarrassing.
Its my little niece’s birthday! I remember I drank this last year on her birthday, so it seemed a good time to do it again. She’s two now! The sparkles in this tea are certainly appropriate.
Happy birthday, little one.

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
1122 tasting notes

I am remembering that this was not my favorite pumpkin tea. Theres nothing wrong with it, but memory tells me that I have ones I like better. Fortunately, those ones are heading my way now.
But this is enjoyable. Its warm and rich and layered, and I’m keen to try this actual chai style, with milk and sugar. One day, when its cool out, then I shall do that.

Stephanie

what is your favorite pumpkin tea? :)

Rosehips

Its a tie, between Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie from Della Terra, and Pumpkin Crème Brulee from Butiki.

TeaBrat

I liked the Grandmas’s Pumpkin Pie myself. Almost bought some a few days ago.

Stephanie

I liked Butiki pumpkin milkshake quite a bit

Rosehips

I’ve ordered the pumpkin milkshake, and can’t wait to try it.

keychange

I have some grandma’s pumpkin pie on the way, too! mmm

drank Pumpkin Cheesecake by DAVIDsTEA
1122 tasting notes

Huh. This tastes like….. something. This is going to be a highly technical review, as you can tell.
Firstly, it smells and tastes warm. Like some sort of scarf in tea form. I do get a note of pumpkin, but also some sort of baked goods doughiness, and a earthy sweet note. Pineapple?
I don’t know that I love it, but I’m certainly interested in playing a bit with it.

Stephanie

Scarf in tea form, I like it

This morning is slow going. That’s not perfect, as I’ve got places to be.
I picked up some of this, loose leaf style, from my local Peet’s. Its a very fruity blend, light and refreshing, and I think it will do well for an autumn blend.

drank Pumpkin Patch by DAVIDsTEA
1122 tasting notes

I was curious. Was this tea different than Pumpkin Chai? Well, only one way to find out, and that was to grab some and do an experiment!
It is different. Theres a caramel and…. ginger? note in it. It doesn’t taste like pie, but it is very autumnal. I like it
I will say, what I find with a lot of pumpkin teas, is that it does taste like pumpkin spice, but not exactly like pumpkin.
Ah well.

drank Paradise Green by Lupicia
1122 tasting notes

I’m doing a sample tea drink, right now, and also going though and, gulp, weeding out tea’s that I do not like and removing them from the cupboard. Life is too short, eh?
Its going to feel very cathartic, I think.
I’ve tried this before, and I stand by my first sip of this. Its a bit bitter for me. I wish I got more of the fruit!

bizbee1

TeaBrat

yep. might as well get rid of them!

drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA

Yesterday, boyfriend and I went to a Steampunk convention, which was a great deal of fun. We went to a lecture on the history of tea while we were there, as well. It was quite funny, and I did learn a bit. I love steampunk, as its a society that knows its tea. I almost chased down a woman with a parasol with a tea pot and cup on it. (I carry a parasol almost all the time. I’m very fair, and sunburn quickly, so hats and parasols are the name of the game.)
My David’s tea arrived yesterday, and I’m trying all the pumpkin teas.
This is the one I’ve had before. I remember you, Pumpkin Chai. This is a nice chai, but I don’t really get pumpkin out of it. Caramel and autumn spices, yes, but not a pumpkin note. That’s alright! I’m happy to have this fall flavor in my house.
Its going to be nearly a hundred degrees again today. I’m pretending it is not so with my cup of tea!

Ost

Oh my word! I love Steampunk too!!
Were you dressed up for it too?

gmathis

That sounds like so much fun!

Rosehips

I was dressed up! I love costumes, and have a lot of fun making them. Sadly no pictures, this time around, though.

Unfortunately its heating up again here. Its going to be in the 90’s this weekend, which is so sad!
Maybe if I drink some autumn flavors, it will encourage the cold weather to come? Please?

drank Paris by Harney & Sons
1122 tasting notes

Ok, this is technically a sipdown, but I always feel like it doesn’t count. I’ll be getting Paris again quite soon, so it doesn’t seem like a proper sipdown.
But, I shall consider it one.
I’m running so low on tea. I remember when having thirty some odd teas was a lot of tea. Now I’m looking at it and going….. I’m going to run out! Tea famine!
Heh, how times have changed.

Bio

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
