This is really good. Malty and a bit of the outdoors in the taste. I’m not getting cocoa or spice, but I am enjoying the flavours from my cup.

Thank you Dexter3657 and Mandala for another exquisite tea.

Sure hope the producer we acquired these from makes them again. This year, sadly, they did not. I’ll keep on them and hope that spring 2014 sees them producing these again. They are really the best ones I’ve gotten before. I’ll be seeing them again in April on a buying trip so let’s keep our fingers crossed. We sold our last ounce just a few days ago :( Happy to sell tea, for sure, but sad to see a great to end. Thanks for your write up!!

This is really tasty. Creamy, nutty and sweet. There is a bit of woodiness from the rooibos. I added a bit of rock sugar and it made for a great afternoon treat. Yum!

Sipdown!!

I’ve been looking over other people’s notes on this one, and I’m one of the odd ones that actually likes this tea. It’s a little nutty and lightly spiced. Even though I enjoyed my cuppa, I didn’t like it enough that I would re-purchase.

Thank you Dexter3657 for sending this one my way.

I found the flavours in this tea sedate. There was a strong lemon aroma, but the taste was mellow and not at all tart. I got a bit of heat from the ginger.

This was only ok for me.

This is really spicy. Which is fine for me, since I do like tea’s with a bit kick. I think the spice over-powered any oatmeal raisin taste, ’cos I just am not getting that flavour. What probably happened is a lot of the spice fell to the bottom of the sample bag, and since I dumped the remaining tea into my infuser it made a really spicy (but yummy) tea.

hah! i didn’t find it spicy… so maybe my oatmeal raisin cookies are spicy?

This is the tea that started me on this tea journey. She bought it for me as a Christmas present last year, and I loved it so much that I promptly started exploring other flavoured tea’s and my obsession has grown from there.

I bought this a couple of times, but it’s time to lay to rest for a while. I’ve finished the last of the sample. I think though, somewhere down the road I’ll probably repurchase it.

It’s got a bit of creaminess from the coconut, but what hooked me on to this was the peppery bite at the end of the sip. I still love it.

I think I’ll always have a fondness for this blend, just because it’s the one that introduced me to loose leaf tea and got me hooked.

I have Dexter3657 to thank for my sample of this lovely tea.

This is my first sampling from Teavivre – I have an order coming in (hopefully soon), and I pleased that this is so tasty. I’m not really surprised, I have read many good things about their tea’s.

The dry leaf is varies in colour from tobacco brown to a light golden. The aroma smells a little like tobacco.

The first steep was malty with some cocoa. Delicious. The second steep was not as deep in flavour. There was a lighter almost fruit like note in the second steep. The aftertaste brought some tobacco flavours out. I prefer the first steep – it had a deeper, stronger taste that I enjoyed.

I wish I liked this tea, but this is just ok. I’m not getting very much pumpkin-pie from it. I’m getting some of the spice, but….just average tasting to me.

I have tried 3 pumpkin tea’s, and I think this one out of the three is my favourite. There is a creaminess to this tea that is playing a role keeping the spices in this light. The other two pumpkin tea’s I’ve tried had too much spice. I’m surprised that I like the lighter spiced tea, since I usually prefer bold flavours, but this nicely spiced and delicious.

Aimee Popovacki

ohh that sounds delicious!

Dexter

Interesting. I just love how everyone perceives things differently. I thought this was too mild, didn’t really taste the pumpkin or spices too mild. Happy that it works for you.

I am so glad you enjoyed this. It is a particular favorite of mine and my mother in-law. It also tastes amazing as a stovetop latte.

Every time I drink this tea I think of butterscotch ripple ice cream. I don’t add any sugar to this, it doesn’t really need it – it’s quite sweet on it’s own.

I thought at one time this would become part of my permanent stash. Funny how tastes change and evolve. I won’t have any trouble finishing what I have left, but it is no longer necessary to always have on hand.

Re-steep is not great.

Sil

i love that tastes evolve! I like this one too but it’s more of a “every so often” sort of in my cupboard, rather than MUST HAVE!

scribbles

I agree…it makes a really nice occasional dessert tea.

Bio

My tea journey started in 2012, when a friend gifted me some loose leaf. I guess she thought I was drinking too much coffee. Blown away by the amazing flavours I immediately embraced the loose leaf tea. I still drink coffee, but my main choice of beverage is now tea.

My tea preferences are blacks, pu’erhs, oolongs and greens.
