Got this tasty tea from Jackie T, thanks!!

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this, but was pretty pumped to try it based on the reviews. Sadly, I’m not as crazy about it. The only other pumpkin tea I’ve tried is Davidstea’s Pumpkin Chai, and I find that one much better.

I think this one should have the word “chai” in the title as it is quite spicy. What I assume in the cheesecake note tastes a bit bitter to me. I didn’t really get the caramel out of this. It is possible I’m still not great at discerning different notes in a tea blend though. I will try again with a bit of coconut sugar to hopefully bring out the caramel. I might even add a wee bit of cream!

I am glad to have tried it though :)
I will have to check the steeping directions online as I may have gone too hot with the water.

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
