That sounds lovely, and I had no idea maple Cheerios even existed.

I found them around Canada Day. I don’t know if they will stay but I hope so.

I had this before the pumpkin mate. Mostly because I wasn’t awake enough to steep tea. So I threw some of this into a cup with some coconut milk. As always it is quite tasty. I find different milks bring out different tastes in this. When I use skim milk I get more spice. When I use 1% I get a bit more of a creamy feel. Coconut milk is somewhere in the middle. Still a nice quick and easy latte to make when you don’t have time for a proper tea before cycling to work.

So I got off midnight shifts yesterday morning and then I had to wake up for the day shift today. So my mind is still trying to adjust the sudden change. At least this shift will be pure overtime so I shall have a bit of extra money. That’s why I started the morning with this tea to help wake me up and get my brain started for the day. I’m not steeping it any less than 7 minutes from now on as that seems to fit this tea perfectly and give me the most flavour.

Flavors: Butternut Squash, Pumpkin

What a terrible scheduling!

Axe the “a”.

Helena

well at least it wasn’t a double shift and I really like this site especially compared to other places I get sent to. So it’s not so bad.

Pumpkin and Chai are just made for each other. Pumpkin pie for instance uses many of the same spices as chai. So of course this is a yummy tea. I taste pumpkin and cinnamon.

Usually I only steep this for a minute but the kitchen door at work wouldn’t cooperate and it took me an extra minute to get back to the desk. (stupid lock on stupid kitchen door). I think I taste tulsi. I definitely taste spearmint but it’s a little light. I blame the oversteeping by a whole minute. It’s a still a good cup of tea but I get more out of it when I steep for a minute then I do now.

Flavors: Spearmint, Tulsi

drank Spiced Pumpkin by DAVIDsTEA

When I smelled the dry leaf reminded me of apple cider just with pumpkin instead of apple. I imagine this would be what pumpkin cider would taste like. I get the pumpkin taste with a bit of maple. Well anyone that know me knows I am a maple addict. I could see this being a great fall/winter tea. Of course with maple and pumpkin I would drink it all year around. I remember going on a field trip when I was in school and tapping our own maple tree to make syrup. It was a lot of fun.

Flavors: Maple, Pumpkin, Spices

Is this back already?? time flies :D

Helena

Not back just happens to be in my stash.

Helena

At least as far as I know it’s not back.

Indigobloom

ah. makes more sense haha

Helena

Indigo I did see a pumpkin 3 pack of teas there earlier this week. It had pumpkin cheesecake in it. Thought about buying it but I still have quite a few teas in my cupboard already.

Indigobloom

must be why I thought it was back!!

Yum! Full of pumpkin goodness. I definitely taste the pumpkin coming. I wish the black base tea was better though. But I find places like David’s Tea seem to use the same base so there’s no help for it. Some people would say pumpkin is only for the fall and to that I say “nonsense!” Pumpkin should be all year around.

Flavors: Pumpkin

Nonsense to the max!

Okay honestly I forget when I stopped the timer on my watch. So I think I steeped this from 4-5 minutes but I’m not sure. I know it wasn’t 7minutes though. After the intense thunderstorms last night it’s nice to see clear sky today. So I went through my stash and found the pumpkin collection from Davids Tea. I LOVE pumpkin and have always had a soft spot for their pumpkin chai. That’s what made me buy these tins. I definitely taste butternut squash and some pumpkin. Have no idea about anything else but I can definitely taste that. I’m also getting a bit of spice but I can’t put my finger on which ones.
