From the Santa Claus TTB. Thanks Veronica for the generous portion of this tea!

I’m not sure how much pumpkin I taste but the lack of that doesn’t interfere with a lovely touch pumpkin spice and the creaminess. Yummy! The rooibos doesn’t have too much of the often woodsy flavor that can sneak in and interfere with the tea.

This is a very nice tea and just what I needed this afternoon (another gloomy Dec. day… I think it is about 14 days in a row).

I’m glad you like it! I add honey and cream to make it extra yummy. :)

I decided to try some whipped cream on top and that is pretty good, too. Okay, I have to admit that I feel adding whipped cream to about anything would make it good. :)

A friend shared a small sample of this tea from her collection and it seemed like the perfect thing to be sipping during Thanksgiving month! I’m not really getting a lot of pumpkin flavor, but the spice blend is right on target and there is a nice creaminess to it. And I was happy that it didn’t have that unpleasant woody flavor that is so common in rooibos blends. Overall, this is nothing too special, but I did enjoy it.

Here’s Hoping Traveling Teabox Round #3 – Tea #18
A spicy rooibos here! I’m not sure how “pumpkin” it is, but it does have a hint of creaminess to it. There COULD be a hint of squash. But the orange pieces are actually… orange pieces, though they don’t show up in the flavor for me. The spices aren’t too tough. I always love a nice rooibos chai at night: comforting and no caffeine.

I haven’t tried lots of pumpkin flavored teas this fall, but out of the ones I’ve tried this one has the most pumpkin flavor. It’s really nice with honey and milk.

yesterday, I had the Pumpkin Chai from The Tea Spot, I was really impressed with the pumpkin flavor there. I’ve had a lot of pumpkin chai teas this year and I think that one was the best.

I’m trying to get myself into a Thanksgiving state of mind by sipping on holiday-ish teas while working on my menu and shopping list. I added a teaspoon of honey and some cream to this tea, and I’m really liking the results. I get a definite pumpkin pie feel from this, and I like the amount of spice. There’s a good bit of cinnamon and ginger, but it is well balanced between the pumpkin flavor and the nuttiness of the rooibos.

I think I’ll be drinking quite a bit of this over the next few months. It’s totally enjoyable now, but I can’t see myself being excited about this once spring rolls around.

This has some very nice creamy pumpkin pie notes. There is also a nuttiness from the roobios which I guess could lend a pie crust note, but there are no pastry flavors. That’s ok though. The pumpkin and spice flavors are enough to make me a fan of this one.

This was a thank you gift from a friend because I babysat her kids. She knows me so well to pay me in tea! :) This is one of her favorite herbals, so I was excited to give it a try even though rooibos is very hit or miss with me.

Yay! This one is a hit. The rooibos has an earthy, nutty flavor which combined with the ginger, clove, and cinnamon does taste pie-like. Adding some sugar and milk really took this to the next level. I don’t know if I get the crust or bready notes, but it is a great creamy pumpkin spice tea. The fact that it is caffeine free is a big bonus.

Haha! You know you’re addicted to tea when…it becomes a currency!!!

Veronica

Ha! That’s so true. And I was doubly excited because it was a tea I had never tried form a company I had not heard of. I spent a while tonight browsing their site seeing if there was anything I just had to have. :)
