This tea was alright, but had a bit too much of a coffee flavor for my taste. I won’t purchase it again.

“Sipdown. I am being teased by the faintest whispers of spice. It’s warm and comforting, but I wish I could actually taste. Drunk with almond milk. :) 3 min at 185F” Read full tasting note

“I had high hopes for this tea but a) it actually was .98 per 2 oz more than the tin said which made me really mad and b) it doesn’t taste nearly as good as its ingredients would lead you to...” Read full tasting note
A bountiful harvest of sweetness and spice, this warming oolong is an impeccable accompaniment to crisp autumn days. A balanced swirl of rich pumpkin and flavors of caramel, toffee, butterscotch, and creamy vanilla, this rich and smooth cup is a sublime indulgence for the body and mind any time of day.
Richly sweet and creamy white and dark chocolate meets sweet pumpkin and toffee flavors, an undertone of sweet spice and mocha

With “white chocolate pieces (sugar, cocoa butter, milk powder, dextrose)” as the second listed ingredient in this Teavana Chunk o’ Food blend, I should not have been surprised to espy the dreaded “oil slick” atop my freshly brewed batch of this “tea”. This blend might be a new record even for Teavana: a “tea” blend in which tea figures as ingredient number … drum roll … six! That’s right, there’s only slightly more tea in this mix than the seventh and eight ingredients: natural & artificial flavoring.
So it’s not really tea, once again. It’s not bad, if viewed as an infusion of cinnamon and various and sundry food items, but I would never purchase this product. My envelope came in last year’s holiday gift set, and with the holidays nearly upon us and “pumpkin spice mania” in full view at every turn—does anyone really crave Pumpkin Lattes? or is that just a marketing-generated illusion to make everyone think that they crave Pumpkin Lattes?
Oh well, another Teavana blend with more cinnamon than anything else. The moral of this story:
Always read the label before buying any “Flavored Oolong Tea”.
Well I guess I have been spoiled by high quality tea.
For an oolong the leaves are rather broken and looks a lot more like black tea but whatever.
I was feeling fall festive and noticed I had this in the pantry and hadn’t tried it yet. Felt like as good a time as any.
Well what I do notice is that it looks kinda gritty or filmy or something. Smells more like apple cider than pumpkin anything.
And the flavor is meh.
Not gonna be my seasonal favorite I’m afraid
It’s Halloween so a pumpkin-flavored tea seemed to be the perfect choice today. As is expected with this blend (and some others from Teavana) there was an oily sheen that rose to the top. There were also pieces of tea and/or spice floating in my cup and lots of tea bits in the bottom of my mug. It may be time to find a new tea ball. I steeped this a little too long but with a little honey it was still good.
I had a pot of this last night. Once again, as with all the other flavored oolongs I’ve tried from Teavana so far, I definitely don’t think there was even close to enough actual oolong in this to even bother having put it in the mix in the first place. This probably should have just been a flavored herbal tea in the end.
I do, however, think the flavor of this was quite nice. The chocolate in this mix sweetened it just enough to balance the spices. I still think there was too much cinnamon because it kind of made the back of my throat feel rough, which often happens when there is too much sweet cinnamon. This tasted better the longer I let it steep. I would consider buying some of this but maybe only if it were on sale.
This is an okay but not great pumpkin tea. The dry leaf smells great, very intense and heavy on the clove, but the steeped cup is a little watery and bland, even though there’s a pretty heavy film of oil on top.
I would never guess this was an oolong – the base doesn’t come through at all. There’s notes of pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, vanilla and some natural sweetness. I added some milk and sugar which I think improved it slightly.
With all the different pumpkin teas to choose from, I wouldn’t buy this again, even though it’s not terrible.

A nice blend, but a better latte. Drinking it as a straight tea (though with 2 tbsp milk and 1 tsp brown sugar) I found it to have a too watery taste. It is very sweet on its own and has nice tastes of caramel and spices and perhaps a sweet toffee taste as well. It has a layer of an oily substance on the top of it, but when mixed in the latte it is unnoticeable. The half water, half steamed milk takes away the watery taste, and compliments all the spices the blend has to offer. Although it is a little pricer than say David’s Tea ($11.50 for 50g) I think it may be worth it for a nice at-home pumpkin spice latte.
I would reccommend BUT only has a latte!
