I enjoy a lot of the teas from the Bulk Herb Store, and this is no exception. It has a sweet minty, slightly woody taste (from the eleuthero root) that is very pleasant. It does seem to relieve some stress – I like to drink it in the evening or in the morning if I am headed into a hectic day. While it does have some stevia leaf in it, I like my tea pretty sweet, so I usually add a little more stevia leaves while steeping. I want to get the max out of these herbs, so I try to steep for at least 15 minutes, although it has good flavor much sooner than that. I use about 1.5 tsp per 8 oz. I drink it warm, but I think this would also be a nice iced tea. I will reorder when I run out.

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).
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.

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’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.
