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.

Smells sweet but tastes a little bitter but not bad. You can taste the spices and they are strong but in a satisfying way instead of it being distracting.

Cofftea Ya know, I don’t really like lemon grass in my chai, but the cumin and curry has me quite interested! And I’ve never heard of Rampe leaves. But what I’m really coveting is their chai spice mix.

Onion family? Weird:)

TeaEqualsBliss

Okay…AFTERMATH…I can totally taste the onion-funkiness-like thing in the aftertaste…ek!

LENA

Cofftea

I’m still game. But you know me, I have to try anything- infact, that just makes me even more curious!:)

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!

MUST TRY!

Culinary Teas is one of my favorite, most consistent, vendors. Can’t remember getting a tea from them that didn’t live up to the description.

You can see the almond and smell the vanilla and almond. It’s a reddish brown in color and lightly flavored and scented all around. It’s actually quite good. Not one thing is too overpowering.

Sounds like a great tea for New Year’s Eve. With a name like that, I think I’ll add it to my Mardi Gras menu!

Smells like White Tea…Looks like White Tea…HEY! It must be White Tea!!!!

After it sits for a while it does start smelling a little floral. It’s pretty!

Delicate and thirst quenching…nice!

Teaman

Just how much tea do you drink in a day?? I see from your string of comments you are into it today! I thought I drank a lot. Maybe you’re just taste-testing? Whatever it is, go for it and enjoy!

TeaEqualsBliss

LOL @ Teaman – I drink at least 6 usually past 12 a day! I like variety! :P

Teaman

Wow you are hard core @TeaEqualsBliss! Love it! Have a Happy New Year and don’t float away!

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.

rabbysmom

yup, points boggle the mind- at least mine:)

The description says winey and juicey and I am not getting either. It smells a little smokey, but just a little. It has a slight positive bitterness to it. It’s light brown in color. It’s fairly good and a little different. Thankfully no aftertaste! That’s a plus. It’s growing on me…

This seemed to be a mild strength flavored black – with just enough Blackberry to blend well for alittle tasty goodness. Seems to be a good starter black flavored loose leaf for those who don’t like bold black teas. Mellow but tasty. Negative is that I couldn’t get a 2nd infusion AT ALL with it.

I’ve reviewed this more than once before…check those reviews out…backlogging from this morning. Major pain issues today and can barely type so my reviews will be brief. Sorry.

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 will say that this tea makes me hungry…not sure why…but it does…need to switch teas before I start gnawing on my arm…

This is a solid, bold, strong, good tea. I still like SeredipiTEA’s version a little better but this is still a goodie!

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.

Juicy with vanilla and black tea throughout! I’m liking this more and more…

fcmonroe

That sounds so good! I love vanilla teas.

gmathis

The description focuses on the maple/berry hints, which I really liked when I had a sample … but I guess there’s some vanilla in there, too. Just never thought about it.

Dry Loose Leaf Blend looks like an Earl Grey
Wet Loose Leaf smells like a vanilla Earl Grey
It’s a lighter brown for liquid color
A very well blended tea…a hint of berry and maple/vanilla hints throughout
Pretty good…

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.
