As stated before, I love pumpkin, I especially love pumpkin pie, but a close second is pecan pie. I did not know that pumpkin pecan pie is a tradition in the south, and without a doubt, I will have to find myself a piece, but until then, I had this tea.

I had this tea right before the Pumpkin Pie Tea by 52teas.

This tea smelled like pumpkin, but more like when a pumpkin pie filling is completely combined and ready to go into the pie shell. So it had creamier, sweeter smelling leaves and brewed tea. That being said, the tea tasted like sweetened pumpkin, not bitter natural pumpkin, it was a mellowed flavor (this is probably from the pecans) and the cinnamon is definitely present.

I had it hot with some sugar but no milk. Again, I think more sugar would help to sweeten it more (probably more like the pumpkin pecan pie would be) and milk might help to blend the flavors together more for a smoother tea.

Overall, this was a good tea, definitely more like pumpkin pie than just a straight pumpkin tea. I am hoping to pick up my own stash of this to keep on hand :)

Bio

I am a sarcastic perfectionist, a computer nerd, a game geek, an avid reader, a gadget guru, a wine (and tea) enthusiast, and (in my spare time) a chemist.

As I mentioned, I am a chemist, research and development to be exact, so when evaluating tea, it is much like evaluating my products: I will find the flaws and do my very best to fix them because it is what I love to do. Along those lines, nothing is perfect, but can have perfect qualities, I will highlight those also.

I made a preliminary guide to my rating scale:
0-19 – Did not like anything about the tea, feel it cannot be saved without being reformulated.
20-40 – Did not like the tea, it can be saved with extreme amounts of tweaking (i.e., sugar, milk, honey and or blending with another tea)
41-60 – Neutral about the tea, it can be helped or hurt by additives or blends, varied temperatures and steep times
61-70 – Decent tea, needs a little bit of help to get it in the place I like it, but definitely not out of reach
71-80 – Quality tea, liked it, will try again
81-90 – Really enjoyed the tea, high quality, will continue to drink the tea, not looking for something better
91-100 – Loved the tea, will continue to brew and drink and spread the word about the tea to everyone
