This is the first Pumpkin tea I have tasted, so I don’t really have any points of comparison. I’m the kind of person who chases after things like “Pumpkin Pie Martinis” and “Pumpkin Ravioli” so I write from the perspective of a pumpkin lover.
This tea pleased me very much. Most importantly, the pumpkin flavor seems true and not at all synthetic. The mix between the black tea, the spices, and the pumpkin was exquisitely done. If you like flavored teas as I do and if you are a fan of the Pumpkin as Food or Flavor source, you owe it to yourself to give this a try. Very well done, Culinary Teas!
Caribbean Blue lady is strawberry kiwi blend as you take the sip and turns into a delicious coconut on the finish/aftertaste. The tea base is very mild so I think this one is best used as an afternoon pick-me-up. Blend is very naturally sweet so I would skip the sweetener until you’ve tasted it.
OH.MY.GOD. Masterpiece! This is great! Remember those scented markers back in the 80s that smelled just like fruit? Well, this tea smells JUST LIKE that Blackberry Marker! YES! It’s scent is LOVELY. The tea itself is very flavorful and yummy. The perfect mix of fruit and green tea. Great job Culinary Teas!
This still smells slightly smoky to me.
It is more of a thick reddish color this time tho.
I’m still not getting juicy but I guess I could chalk up this cup – compared to the last – more wine-like…maybe a semi-dry one. It’s kind of dry but also a little sweet.
This cup was better than my last by about 2 points :P Whatever that means…regardless…I’m raising it by 2.
Under infused just to see the difference…for the 2nd infusion…still good. I found the strength-differences can be a good thing. It’s still quite strong but if you are looking for a normal strength understeep…if you are a tar-like strong strength keep it in there passed the 3-4 mins. LOL
I was looking for a bold black tea to start my day…this was a great choice! I have 1 more ‘helping’ left tho…which is a bummer…
I had a hellish day yesterday! It ended up on a good note tho!!! So…I am going to be drinking lots and lots of tea today! Almost done with this cuppa!
I’m also going to try and finish up what’s low in my stash today, too!
Here’s to a good tea day!
I have decided to up this rating. Why? Because my in-house tea collection is at an all time high and it seems I have been going back to this one often. I’m not sure why…sure, it’s yummy, but why am I drawn to it!? There’s vanilla in it and I usually don’t go for the vanilla ones…it’s creamy but I usually don’t go for those, specifically, either. It’s floral but sweet and juicy, too. AND it’s a medium flavored black tea…but…when it comes to all-around flavor – it’s very flavorful! I still am not sure why I am drawn to this but I am…and it intrigues me so I am upping the rating a bit.
It has been a long time since I had a cuppa good enough to dedicate more than a sentence to. This one deserves a novelette, but I’ll try to keep it to Reader’s Digest length:
When I first opened the pouch, the smell reminded me of my grandma’s cattle feed barn—a good thing; I’m a farm kid at heart. Fresh sweet clover hay, burlap, and sileage. The grassy smell goes away after you steep it, and instead, you just get the sweet, grainy, clovery taste that lingers a bit after you swallow. Ahhhh! I suddenly have a desire to drive a tractor….
Brought it to work where I often get stuck using tap water, but I believe this is too good to waste. It’s going back home with me.
