The brewed tea has an incredibly buttery aroma- very much like a fresh pastry. I’m detecting pie crust in the scent.

The buttery taste does translate into the flavour. A little bit thin in flavour on the sip but the taste blooms into a very convincing pumpkin pie taste close to the end of the sip into the aftertaste. Slight earthy/astringent note from the black. The black tea flavour compliments the pie very nicely near the end of the sip into the aftertaste. Very nice black tea and pumpkin pie notes in the lingering aftertaste.

Thanks to Sil for passing on some of this to me!

This time I’m getting more of the “pie” idea behind this tea. It’s definitely pumpkin-y and the spicing is spot-on, but the crust notes are more subtle and only come in when the tea is steeped 4 minutes or longer. Now I’m getting a little bit of graham flavor or something like it. Very nice! Upping the rating.

This tea’s scent reminds me a little bit of DavidsTeas pumpkin chai. They both smell like a pumpkin candle: pumpkin and spices.

Sipping… hm.. this tastes a little watered down, but I do like the pumpkin and spices. The pumpkin is cozy and soft. It’s not very much like pumpkin PIE, but more of cooked plain pumpkin. The tea base isn’t all that impressive, but I don’t mind since I’m just here for the pumpkin! To me, this is quite similar to DavidsTea, but lacks the spicy cinnamon bite.
I would say that this tea is decent, but not enough to make me scramble for more.

Next time, I think I’ll add more leaf for a stronger cup and possibly add some sugar or milk to see if I can draw out some pie flavor.

I had this one today for the first time and I feel the same way. Not really pumpkin pie, kinda watered down pumpkin spice. I was going to try it again overleafed with milk and agave tomorrow and hope for better results!

If you do end up trying it tomorrow, let me know if you like it better with milk and agave!

I’m coming to terms with the fact that I just don’t like the cinnamon that Della Terra uses in their teas. Luckily this tea doesn’t have too much in it, but it’s still lurking there in the background. Otherwise, I do like this tea! Thanks Shmiracles!

I got this one because I had read a few reviews saying this one was better than DAVIDsTEA’s version. Better? Is that even possible? I feel that it’s probably the same… as was Autumn Leaves the same as Oh Canada.

It smells the same, looks the same.

I have to say they taste the same as well, which is just fine by me. I love both versions and you can never have enough of your favourite tea. When I run out of one, I’ve got the other.
Super yum!

This is definitely a dessert tea with its combination of spices and subtle sweetness from the sprinkles. The cinnamon stands out the most, followed up by hints of nutmeg, but it is missing a little something in terms of spices. I make my own pumpkin pie spice because I like to add cloves to it, but if you look at a commercially compared blend such as the one from McCormick, it contains cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. I’m just not tasting the full range of spices that I expect with pumpkin pie.

This was another of the teas that I won from Della Terra Teas (seriously, go like them on facebook, there are so many giveaways). This was also one of the teas I suggested when they asked for ideas for fall teas. Makes me feel special!

So, I made a very sad tea discovery last night when I was drinking this. I don’t like nutmeg in teas. I like it in cooking, but not teas. I first noticed this when I tried Forever Nuts. It had a weird smell and taste to me that I just didn’t like. When I opened this up, there was that same smell! I was hoping it would drown out in the taste, but no :( My mom tried it, and said it tasted just like pumpkin pie, so obviously it is a good tea. I just can’t get past the nutmeg :(

If you don’t mind or even like nutmeg in teas, give this a try. According to my mom it is really good. I was looking forward to this tea too. Silly taste buds :(

momo

I’m that way with almond. There can be all sorts of other stuff going on in it but it just sticks out to my taste buds and ruins it, so weird.

The smell of this tea made me want to skip the steep and just eat it!! But I controlled myself and waited the five minutes to drink it. At first it was to hot to really taste anything But after a few minutes of cooling owww the yummy goodness!! I added just a touch of sweetener – perfect!

This is definitely a pumpkin pie flavored tea, not just an “autumn spiced” or “pumpkin spice” tea. It has a nice creaminess to it. Just a hint of pumpkin, but it certainly is present. The spices are mild and compliment the pumpkiny, creamy goodness very nicely. I am totally satisfied with this one!

UPDATE: This did not resteep very well for me. Second cup smells good, but tastes like hot water.

Continuing with my pumpkin quest tonight, I dug further into the box that JackieT sent me and found this one. We have a winner!!!
This is hands down the best pumpkin tea I’ve found so far. It’s not in your face spicy but all the pumpkin pie spices are there, you can taste the pumpkin. This is really good.

Thanks Jackie, this is awesome. (Love the variety and being able to head to head compare teas like this).
