I don’t think this tea is perfect by any stretch nor do I think it’s my favorite pumpkin tea, but I do quite like it and I think it’s the one I would want around most because I find it transcends the season the best.

I wish the pumpkin was the sweeter cooked variety, but I really love the spicing in this cup. It’s bold, but not overwhelming or dominating of the pumpkin. It’s a flavorful pumpkin pie spicing that is evocative of an autumn day with changing leaves and hayrides regardless of the weather outside. It kind of teleports you to the season.

I think a little sugar does a lot for this cup in terms of the pumpkin flavor, but I’d gladly drink it with or without add ins.

Been a while since I’ve had fun shopping the Culinary Teas website. Their flavors always sound like such fun!

I added a stick of cinnamon and a few cloves to this before I took my brother to night class. (currently waiting in the lobby for it to end). The adding of the spices really added to and awakened this tea’s potential. It really taste like pumkin pie minus the crust. And oh the creaminess…. (K^>)

I like to mix this one with their Pumpkin Chai so it tastes more pie-like! It’s definitely much better with a bit of spice.

I will have to try that…

Another tea from the box!
It certainly does taste like pumpkin. Unfortunately, like most pumpkin teas it’s kinda like the uncooked version. Tried with and without a splash of lait, and they were both nice.
Overall, I like it, but I don’t love it.

Try blending it with some cinnamon or cloves. Then the flavor pops!

Indigobloom

Hrm that is tempting! it’s from the traveling tea box so I’d feel kinda guilty doing that :S

Ze_Teamaker

No, no. In the tea pot. When or if you brew it again.

Indigobloom

thing is, I need to send the rest of it on so other people can try. Feeling a little greedy though haha

Ze_Teamaker

Lol, well if you want i’ll send you a bit next time I order in some.

Indigobloom

This came in the traveling tea box Group B – I think this is quite nice actually. It could be more “creamy” or some sweetness to it but I actually like adding my own german rock sugar over having stevia already in a tea so I respect it not being sweetened. I added sugar and the flavors really popped.
A good one.

A big thanks to darby for swapping this one! This is my first experience with Culinary Teas. :)

The smell was big and bold upon opening up the package.

“Hhhhhhhhhiiiiii, I’m Pumpkin Cream!”, it exclaimed as I pulled the chock-full, snack-sized bag out of the postal packaging.

I can tell I’m going to have to repackage her. (Yes, this tea is definitely female in my mind.) I’d hate for her to get overly friendly with my other less perfumey teas in my corner cupboard. Finding her a more suitable container to call her own, I dug up a nice canning jelly jar.

The smell is spicy, sweet and creamy – there’s definitely the smell of cinnamon sticks and whole cloves in there. I’d assume the sweet is maybe some vanilla and cream flavor. There’s also something that smells a little burnt – is that the smell of canned pumpkin?

Using dry tea leaf that wavers between 2 and 3 grams for 9 ounces of water, I wait until the infusion looks like a nice pumpkin-orange color – about 3 minutes and 45 seconds. The smell of the dry leaf transfers to my cup.

After waiting a few minutes, I try a taste. It sort of tastes like unsweetened pumpkin pie filling. The spices are well balanced and smooth. Yet the pumpkin flavoring is not dominated by them.

I did try this with a little simple syrup, but it seems to muddle the taste for some reason. I like this better pre-sweetener.

I look forward to playing around with this tea. The smell of the dry leaf scared me a little, leading me to not use as much leaf as I initially planned on. Next time I’ll try a little longer infusion with just a few more dry leaves.

Backlog from yesterday. Super busy lately!

I got this tea from Alphakitty, thanks!

I love anything pumpkin, so I was interested in trying this. It was a pretty tasty tea! Definitely pumpkiny, though not especially creamy. It’s also only lightly spicy. A hint of pumpkin pie spice, but not overwhelming for sure. More like a delicate pumpkin souffle. The tea base was not very interesting, but also pleasant enough and not bitter at all. Definitely tasty and I drank up my cup with pleasure!

got some swap boxes in the mail friday evening!
thanks to moraiwe for this decadent pumpkin elixir! it is probably the most buttery and natural pumpkin scented tea i’ve had yet. and it really does feel like i’m sitting next to the oven.
it has an illusive quality to it. and it’s so truthful in it’s flavor that i don’t think i can really define this cup. like it’s so front & center and close that i can’t even see it.
i’m not sure if this sounds as flattering as i’m intending it to, but seriously, if you’ve had this tea you probably already know what i’m talking about.
tasting is believing.
at the end of this cup i added just a touch of agave and cream to see what that was like, but really, i recommend this tea plain. it’s got secrets in there that won’t be revealed with additives.
and holy crap does moraiwe have good taste knowing that this is a perfect contrasting & notable tea to add as a mystery swap bonus. whew!

My first Steepster swap! Thanks to Will Work for Tea for this lovely surprise! I love Pumpkin, I have been patiently awaiting the comeback of Pumpkin Chai from DT and felt this could hold me over until TOMORROW when it’s re-released. So, I busted out my pot to brew up my CaveMama tea and then I dropped my digital thermometre in the water :(. So I just went with boiling water. After I prepared it, but before I tasted it BoxerPapa showed up and tasted it. His response “Can you make me some of that, but stronger?”
It’s good thing I only need it until tomorrow…
I had read the reviews that this was a weaker tea so I tried to compensate by using 1.5 tsp in 6oz water. I steeped 4 minutes on mine. BoxerPapa got 5 min and a rounded 1.5 tsp. . . He didn’t complain so I assume it was satisfactory.
The taste to this tea is quite light, but good. The cream (I would guess vanilla?) is a bit more potent than the pumpkin and you can’t really taste the tea nor does it give you much of a jump start. But, this would be a good after dinner tea!

Sip down #4

The dry notes smell mostly of cream with a hint of candied pumpkin. Once steeped it smells very creamy.
It’s a little spiced like pumpkin pie and mainly creamy. There is however some astringency.
I’ve been having issues with my black teas lately. I must be steeping too long. So I’m going to add a bit of milk to this and see how that goes. It definitely helped to get rid of Tue astringency and it still tastes mostly like cream with that hint of pumpkin pie.

Although not my fav tea, it will stay in my cupboard.

Thanks to darby for sharing this tea! It smells like fall – pumpkin, spice, warm blankets, fuzzy boots, and hay rides. Sadly this tea doesn’t taste much like it smells. I’m not getting pumpkin much at all. It tastes like black tea with a little spice at the very end of the sip. Not nearly as much flavor as I was hoping for. The cream however is a very nice touch here.

A little sugar doesn’t really help bring out the flavors either. This isn’t bad really, I’m just one of those people that really likes an in-your-face pumpkin spice flavor.
