From 52teas

This week’s tea of the week tastes like rich pumpkin pie with a crust made entirely of sweet, delicious toffee. I don’t know if anyone could really make a pie like that, but I would love to try one. In the meantime, I’m going to continue enjoying rich sips of this yummy tea. The Dragonwell green tea adds just the right notes of sweet nuttiness to compliment the toffee and contrast with the pumpkin. All in all, this is a really special treat you’ll love serving to your guests, if you’re generous enough to share.

This superior Dragonwell blend is available at zoomdweebies.com for just $9.99 for a 2oz pouch. Get yours today.

A huge thanks to Dinosara for sharing this with me in a swap bag I just received today. So excited!

I can smell the pumpkin in here, very much the same flavoring as Frank’s Ginger Pumpkin Cheeesecake Honeybush. This one however, I only smell the pumpkin… oh wait, there’s the flavor a few seconds after the sip. Well, I do get buttery, I do get pumpkin, I’m missing a bit of toffee, however with a touch of sweetener, that may change. A nice, light cup.

Pumpkin and toffee, can it get much better? Unfortunately, I have not had the best of luck with some of the 52Teas blends. Still, always worth putting on my wish list to try.

thank you CHAroma! for sending a sample of this my way. Even being sick i risked drinking this one since i have a thing for franks pumpkin flavouring. I quite like this one. Not enough to feel the need to buy a whole bag for myself but it did reinforce that i still love the pumpkin flavouring that he has. Paired with the green base (not usually my preference), it’s got a nice creamy feel to it. Thanks CHAroma!

I hope all this tea you’ve been sampling has been helping you feel better. :)

I thought you’d like it. ;)

Ahhhh, snow! We just had a brief snowfall here… perfect day to stay inside and huddle with blankets and tea.

So, I broke my don’t-buy-52teas rule and bought this tea. I have not have much success with them, and they are often just not to my taste. I have bought pumpkin teas from them in the past because I want them to work for me, but they never do. This one got through because dragonwell. I don’t like their black tea base, but this is dragonwell! And maybe it won’t cover up the flavorings so much.

The dry leaf, of course, smells AMAZING. They always do. Like pumpkin and spices and toffee. Brewed, I still get a good amount of pumpkin and spices from the scent, with perhaps a bit of buttery toffee, and the dragonwell base comes out.

It’s interesting. The dragonwell is an interesting choice of base because it is buttery, but it’s also green, so I feel like it lacks a bit of heft I might want from a pie tea. That said, the pumpkin is nice here, and I actually taste it as pumpkin, which is saying something. Pumpkin itself is often lost in pumpkin spice teas. I normally wouldn’t sweeten a green tea but… I think this one would really be awesome with an added hint of sweetness, which might bring out the green tea. Overall I am reasonably happy, although my mind isn’t blow or anything.

This one sounded pretty good to me too, but I’ve had to stop buying from them unless I’ve tried a sample first. They are very hit or miss with me too!

Snow?!?
Oy.

I haven’t written a note on this one, even though I’ve had it a few times. Still trying to figure out whether I like it.

Backlog:

I loved the idea of a pumpkin toffee tea … I love pumpkin … I love toffee … what’s not to love! The toffee notes are portrayed really nicely in this tea. Sweet and spicy from the pumpkin spices, creamy. Delicious.

The toffee tastes buttery and accentuates the pumpkin really nicely … not a flavor combination I would have thought of but it works. I love that Frank chose a green tea base here instead of black tea, I think that the black tea would have obscured some of the tasty nuances of the toffee and pumpkin.

YUM!

MissB

I just had this yesterday myself. How did you go about brewing it?

LiberTEAS

I brewed it in my breville one touch. Temperature was 180 and the steep time was 2 minutes.

MissB

Ah yes, I need to get back to using my Breville for brewing instead of just using it as a boiling water canister. ;) Thanks! :)

Dragonwell is green tea similarly to that Gunpowder Tea. How can it be mixed with pumpkin and Toffee…amazing. I will not try this one.

No offense, remember I am the one that purchase the Doggy Tea thinking it was to be consume by humans when not. Good luck.

CHAroma shared this one with me :)

I’m actually quite enjoying this blend. The pumpkin is really lovely, though I’m not really getting toffee. I don’t generally go for greens, but I’m looking forward to a resteep.

The dry leaf aroma has bite! It’s spicy and pumpkin-y and downright scrumptious smelling! The brewed tea aroma is calmer and the taste is calmer still. Don’t get me wrong; this is tasty! But I wish the taste had the same bite as the dry leaf aroma.

The green base comes through strong and in the forefront of the sip. It’s not thickly grassy as I would expect a dragonwell to be, but that’s actually to my advantage. Next comes the pumpkin spiciness (think Thanksgiving pumpkin pie with nutmeg). And at the end of the sip, there’s a sweet, caramel-like, toffee finish. This is delicious! Not quite as potent as I’d like the flavors to be but delicious nonetheless.

I know this isn’t a cheesecake tea…but I swear I can detect tanginess too. Overall, I’m not floored by this blend as I have been in the past with some 52teas’ creations. However, I’ll happily drink the rest of this and even share it with my husband. I have a feeling this is exactly the type of tea he’d love. Green teas are his favorite. :)

This was one I was curious about but I’m mostly off of 52 teas now until frank gets back to what hews a producing earlier. Too many disappointments lately :(

CHAroma

Aww, well I’d be happy to send you a sample if you’d like to try it. It’s a lightly flavored tea, similar to the gentle way Stacy from Butiki flavors her teas. The base is really nice too, so at the very least you’ll enjoy a nice cup of green tea. I don’t need anything in return, and I promise I won’t send you a million samples like last time. ;)

I enjoy a good dragonwell tea and seeing that this was the base for this blend — I thought, perfect! There is something about the pumpkin spices that really bothers me. I can’t put my finger on what it is… the ginger? The clove? Nutmeg? Either way, it’s not something that I want in my tea. I actually don’t mind pumpkin spices when they are mild or mixed with something as in a pumpkin pastry or pie. I think that pumpkin spices are quite comforting around this time of the year, it’s just when I can isolate one of them that ruins it.

This tea tastes mostly like pumpkin spice with a very faint green tea in the background. I do like the base and think it would be a nice tea on its own, if given the chance to be sipped without the addition of other flavors. All of the spices come together to create an outline of a pumpkin flavor, but it’s not truly pumpkin. I continued to sip even though I had a pretty good grasp on what this tea was all about.. it’s just not what I want it to be. As for the toffee? Can’t taste it at all — it’s all about the spices.

This tea was not too bad. I drank it iced with no added sugar. It had a hint of pumpkin, not so much toffee. I would drink it again.

Tea #3 from Another Traveling Tea Box?!?!?!

I like this tea…the first time I had dragonwell, it was in a spicy tea, and I didn’t like it. I do like it in this tea. It lends a nice counter-balance to the pumpkin/toffee. I love pumpkin, and I can taste it in this tea.

Someone else posted that a black tea would not have worked as well in this combination, and I agree. I think it would have over-powered the pumpkin.

I’m not sure I’d buy a ton of it, but it was nice to sample.

Edit: I think it got better as it cooled.

I love this one more with every sip. In my opinion it would make a really excellent cheesecake, but as it is it already tastes like some kind of creamy dessert with a brûlée top. It’s sweet and a little tangy, and now I know mom likes it too (she asked what I was making and it sounded so good she asked for some). I’m going to be sad to see it go!
