I attempted to whisk this into cold water when I got home from work, and I say “attempted” because no matter how long or vigorously I did it I couldn’t get a lot of the large lumps out. I know I could have strained it before hand but I really don’t like the extra time that takes when whisking normally does a good enough job.

However, it still tasted pretty decent; lots of creamy pumpkin tastes and then more spice than I recall there being last time – but still nice overall. I almost wished I had made up a larger cup of it, but then I would accidentally bite a lump of matcha and the taste would be icky and I’d change my mind.

In other news, I brought one of the two work phones home with me tonight. Oops. Hopefully it’s not still in range and I don’t get people calling me all day tomorrow asking stupid questions like “what time are you open until” and “do you carry ball point pens?”. And I don’t work again until Thursday…

So, there’s that.

For some reason I find the Pumpkin Pie matcha just doesn’t blend as well as other matchas.

This is kinda a sad note for me…I love the “regular” pumpkin teas &
I was seriously considering pumpkin matcha, but not if it clumps like that…
All I need is to bite into a big clump and wanna barf.. lol…
Thanks for this note!

Hello;

My name is Kelly. I’m a barely twenty tea drinker and reviewer living in Saskatchewan, Canada. I started drinking loose leaf fairly casually nearly two years ago, and at some point between then and now that ‘fun little hobby’ turned into a serious obsession.

You know you’ve got it bad when you get your hobby tattooed to your arm.

Typically I drink flavoured blends more that straight but one of my mini goals this year is to get that ratio to a more 50/50 level. I do a daily cold brew, and have at least (but usually a lot more) two hot cups of tea every day. Naturally I lean towards black or white blends, but I WILL drink everything; the last half year or so I’ve been challenging myself by further exploring Oolong and Pu’Erh which are the tea types I know the least about overall.

My default for preparation is Western Style with zero additives (the exception being matcha which I drink in straight milk with no additives); so unless I mention otherwise you can assume that’s how I’ve prepared my tea!

Favourite flavours/ingredients: Pear, Lychee, Cranberry, Cream, Melon, Pineapple, Malt, Roasty

Least favourite flavours/ingredients:
Lemongrass, ginger/“Chai” in general, raisins, overly vegetal, chamomile, sometimes mango or peach

I also have a severe allergy to mushrooms; as such I do not drink Kombucha teas!

Currently exploring/looking to try: Straight Pu’Erh or Dark/Roasted Oolong, Sweet Potato flavoured blends, and anything with Goji berries

I also write reviews for SororiTea Sisters! Typically what I post there is more edited, focused and expanded reviews of what I’m posting here. Unless I was sent a tea specifically to review for the blog, I will post here first.

If the tea was sent to me specifically to review there then the full review will only be posted there, and my Steepster review will just contain a snippet of the review and a link to the full review on the SS site.
