When the hot water first hit this tea, I immediately smelled pumpkin pie filling. The taste of the brewed tea is more pumpkin chai to me. I definitely get a pumpkin flavour. I am getting cloves and a very light ginger taste. I am also getting quite a roasty or burnt flavour – burnt like caramelized sugar. I get only the slightest bit of rooibos flavour, which is a plus for me.
Definitely surprised by this one. Thanks*Terri*!
…Sigh…. Sil, I need to send the BBBB on to you soon, or I will run out of the last of this & start drinking yours!
I wanted more Chai, but not more caffeine, so I simmered this, just like I did the Laoshan Village Chai, & it was delicious. I go through phases with chai. Year’s ago I used to mix up my own, now I’m thinking I want to do that again. This cool weather has me in a mood for it. I was also thinking…I wonder how chai would be using a smokey tea?
love. this. tea. seriously. Talk about tasting like actual pumpkin – which of course has something to do with the GIANT chunks of pumpkin in this. So happy terri shared this with me. I thought tonight’s cup would finish off what she sent me but i’ve got enough for another sil sized cup another night. Perfect, since i can resteep this tonight for a couple of cups of goodness.
Back to work tomorrow AND a friend of ours is coming to crash at our place since he still doesn’t have power. While i am totally cool with that, it also means i may need to go in to work tomorrow instead of working from home. but we’ll see.
and tomorrow i get to liberate my mail from jail! WOOHOO!
We’ve been watching episodes of Supernatural all afternoon, just chilling out & drinking tea. I’ve had enough caffeine, for now anyway. I not a big fan of rooibos, but this tea is delicious. Without a doubt it wins the little terri award for Best Tasting Rooibos Tea, Best Pumpkin Tea, & Best Herbal Chai. I bought a little stash of this, & will be sad when it’s gone. But that day is not today, so let us not speak of such things, but rather, let us savor this moment only, along with the last few sips in this cup.
TERRI! I WANT MOAR! seriously..this is damn tasty! It’s my christmas mor-er-afternoon tea and this is so delicious. Please remind me next year we want lots of this. This might be my favourite pumpkin tea this year.
Edit: this resteeps really nicely since you can brew it and forget it lol This is pretty much all i’ve had since we got up this afternoon.
I stopped by Traveling Tea yesterday to get somemore of the Pumpkin ginger spice she makes (All naturally flavored using locally grown organic pumpkins that she roasts & then dehydrates herself…it is delicious!).
In an effort to support local business, I bought an oz of this limited edition Yunnan Forest. It is organically grown, & is a decently bold & earthy brew, very smooth, tongue tingly, slightly bitter, with hints of cedar & a lingering sweetness. Oh, & it packs a punch!
I got a sample of this from a local teashop. I’m trying to drink more non-caffeine teas in the evening, & so here we are.
This resembles the herbal teas from my hippy days, & initially I was a little put off by the aroma of spearmint. But actually, it’s pretty good as an after dinner tisane. One good thing I can say about the Traveling Tea Company is that their teas are Organic & Fair Trade. And they are less than 5 minutes from my house.
