Tastes more flowers and spices than actually like pumpkin. A little disappointing. But not too bad a tea by itself.

I thought I could improve it by using brown sugar instead of white… but it still does not taste much like pumpkin, just pumpkin pie spice. Very inferior to David’s Tea Pumpkin chai.

For a long time I just couldn’t get past the smell of this tea. It smells sickeningly sweet, in a syrupy kind of way that just makes me gag. That was disappointing, because I absolutely love pumpkin and expected this to be my favorite out of the holiday sampler. Today I decided to be a big girl and give it a try.

It brews a beautiful orangey color, and the horrible syrupy smell is drastically toned down once the brew has cooled a bit. But its still there and I can’t help but wrinkle my nose.

It tastes bitter, but its nothing a bit of sugar can’t fix. Thankfully it doesn’t really taste like it smells. I get a faint aftertaste of pumpkin, but it mostly tastes of cloves and cinnamon. Overall I don’t really see this as something I’ll drink all the time, or even pay money for, but I’ll finish the little tin. Maybe. More often than not I’ll open it and be so put off by that awful smell I end up making something else. There has to be a better pumpkin tea out there.

Felt like I should bust out with the pumpkin spice today. Steeped for 4 minutes. I definitely taste the spice, which went well with some milk and sugar. Not much pumpkin, but this tea was still delightful to drink this morning.

This smelled stronger than it tasted. While we liked it, we wanted more pumpkin flavor…

I was sad about this cup of tea I love pumpkin spice but this left a bitter after taste I thought maybe I steeped it to long but clearly this is not the case. This saddens me greatly :(

I received this at Christmas and am just getting around to trying it. I don’t know what’s up with this tea, but there is no hint of pumpkin or spice. The tea itself was very bitter. I don’t think I’ll have another cup of this any time soon.

I enjoy black teas, I especially enjoy flavored black teas, and I LOVE pumpkin (as in everything else I have ever tried) but this tea was disappointing.

The smell is intriguing and I had high hopes for the tea, but when brewed, it was just so bitter, and I really couldn’t get past that. I am sorry about this, I wish I could, I do not require things to be sweet, but this was uncomfortably bitter.

Don’t like pumpkin, don’t like spice… but this was okay.
