This is my 13 year old son’s favorite tea. It’s warm. Just enough hint of spice for him. I do enjoy a cup with him but I prefer a spicier blend.

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

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!

This is my favourite tea from Teavana. Probably the only tea I will spend money on from there when it comes back in the fall months. I miss it so much! It makes a beautiful spicy lattee when you steep it in half hot water, half warm milk! Mmmm sooo yummy. You can’t trace any kind of artificial taste in this, either. Just like spicy, earthy, sweet, warm goodness. Please bring this back soon, Teavana!!
I’ve only tried this once so far, and on its own I didn’t like it very much. I ordered 4oz because it sounded amazing and Teavana was having an online sale for it. It’s boring. It’s not bad but I don’t have the desire to drink it again, really. I mixed it with Celestial Seasoning’s Cinnamon Apple Spice and it was much better that way. I’m considering adding cream to it or something because it was just “eh”. You can’t taste the chocolate at all.
The initial scent of this one is all delicious pumpkin … which then fades to something that reminds me of Mango Mate Pu’erh Punch. Yuck! I’ve been having mostly good luck with the teas I got from Teavana’s Heavenly Sale and I’d really like it if the few I have left aren’t drain-worthy.
Anyway, I really wasn’t looking forward to this tea today. The smell of the dry leaves was nauseating. I made two thermoses of this to take to work and added cinnamon creamer to both. And … this tea is actually pretty good! It reminds me of a watery egg nog with some pumpkin added.
Yay! Another breakfast tea I can be happy about drinking! I’m so glad this one tastes better than it smells.
OMG this tea hit the spot. Between a toffee and caramel flavor mixed with the rich pumpkin spice it really reminds me what I love about pumpkin flavored drinks. I almost feel as though I am eating a home baked pumpkin pie!
Flavors: Caramel, Vanilla
I am a pumpkin spice fanatic, and this has been perfect. I’ve been drinking it cold with no sweetener and it is just right – the perfect blend of spices, the slightest tinge of sweetness, and just the right amount of pumpkin flavoring. I usually think rooibos teas are too weak, but this is perfect.
