I keep looking for nice pumpkin pie teas, especially now that it’s the holidays…
This is a nice tisane, it’s a rooibos and honeybush mix and the dry leaf smells very ginger-y. This reminds me a bit more of a gingerbread spice than it does of pumpkin pie, but it’s hard to capture a pumpkin flavor in tea, I think. Overall I am pretty happy with it though. The clove element is very strong. I think this would be really good as a late and will have to try making it that way someday, or maybe just add some whipped cream on top of this… nom!
Tea #41 from Another Traveling Tea Box
This one smells really spicy and not too terribly good in the bag, but once steeped it smells sweeter, but still has a rather zippy feel.
It is definitely reminiscent of pumpkin pie, despite the lack of pumpkin flavor. The spices are surprisingly mellow, and strongly clove and ginger, with a more subtle nutmeg and cinnamon flavor. I’m also really happy with how not-rooibosy this is. This would pair so well with Thanksgiving dinner!
I am always on the quest to find a perfect rooibos/honeybush pumpkin pie blend. I want something creamy, with lots of pumpkin flavor & very light on the spice. Pumpkin pie is my favorite pie and I adore anything pumpkin anyway. I love this time of year because I feel less crazy for indulging in everything pumpkin! Anyway, I am trying the last of this tea again because I honestly can’t remember how it tastes.
This tea is interesting because like many pumpkin pie teas, it relies on the spices to deliver the pumpkin flavor. I don’t find the spices to be too overwhelming in this blend (hooray!). It actually morphs into pumpkin pie on the tongue if you really slurp. I actually like the way the spices blend with the honeybush. I think honeybush is a great base to use for this kind of tea because it’s sweet and smooth like a creamy slice of pie.
I am surprised at how mellow this tea is. It could be because it’s very old… I’m sure that the fresher teas would have a bit more strength. So far this is my favorite honeybush/herbal pumpkin blend. It still feels like there is something missing to make this just right… but I’ll certainly finish the cup!
I cannot remember who sent this to me in a swap.. but thank you & I’m sorry I forgot who you are!

Wow is this tea perfect! The pumpkin is light in taste, but it smells very pumpkin. The brewed tea is pretty dark, I was surprised to find it was a honeybush and not the red rooibos in this tea. I love the spices, cloves add to the festive feeling of this tea. There is a natural sweetness to this tea. I didn’t need any additives, but I am saving the second cup for a tea latte type drink! This will definitely be a tea I purchase. Thanks Jaime for making these samples possilbe!
Little league baseball season has started. With two kids on two different teams, this means we will have three games and two practices each week for the next few months. Last year around this time we pretty much lost control of our entire schedule because of the baseball situation and I couldn’t wait for it to be over. Not that it wasn’t fun watching the kids play. No. 1 in particular is quite talented. He has an amazing arm and is a pretty reliable batter as well. But still. On top of everything else the kids have going on it’s quite a hellacious couple of months. Not to mention what we, the adults, have going on. All of which basically gets put on the back burner. At least this time I have a folding chair to take with me to the games (I asked for one for Mother’s Day last year because my butt hurt from having to sit on the concrete at the parks where there aren’t bleachers).
All of that is a long winded way of saying that I’m going to put this in a big mug and go lie down with it beside my bed, and I expect I will fall asleep (continuing with the baseball theme) before you can say Jack Robinson.
The pie flavor is coming out even before much cooling goes on tonight, which is comforting. Soon my body will realize that it isn’t getting any sugar out of this despite the taste and I won’t be able to stay awa…
Tea #18 from Another Traveling Tea Box
I’m not really sure that I’ve had a pumpkin pie tea before, but this one was a little bland. I liked the combination of rooibos and honeybush, gave the tea a flavor somewhat reminiscent of pumpkin pie. The flavors weren’t quite spot on, I didn’t taste pumpkin at all, but it had a nice combination of spices.
Thank you to Jaime for sending me this one… it’s from our Secret Santa swap that I hadn’t yet had a chance to try yet!
This is really good. I like that it is a blend of both rooibos and honeybush, because I prefer the blend of the two than rooibos on its own. The spices are warm but not spicy-hot. A hint of pumpkin in the background… makes me long for Thanksgiving! Or at least Thanksgiving dinner! YUM!
Wow I’m really the first one to review this one?! Well, I am a big pumpkin fan to the point that I even make my own “pumpkin pie” oatmeal at home so when I found this I had to try it! It is very much like pumpkin pie in liquid form except it seems a bit heavy on the cinnamon, which isn’t a bad thing – I’m just a nutmeg lover when it comes to pumpkin pie! The tea even tastes a bit creamy as if there is slight whipped cream taste. Also, there is this other flavor that I couldn’t put my finger on and it really made its presence known at the back of my tongue. This really started to annoy me because I couldn’t pick out what that flavor was that I was tasting! So I went to their site and I notice there is honeybush in here and I have never had honeybush before so I assume that is what that mystery taste was since the pumpkin and spices were all distinguishable. This will be an AWESOME fall drink and will have to make myself a reminder to get some of this around October!
Thank you Ellyn for the sample!
This blend is spicy but kind of bland. I don’t taste any pumpkin, mostly cinnamon and other spices with honeybush. It’s not bad, but I had to steep it for a really long time to get the strength I was looking for. Glad to have tried it though! It makes me wish Pumpkin Chai from DavidsTea was spicy like this.
