I need more pumpkin mate in my life. Or even just more pumpkin! I love the spicy notes I’m getting. Very similar to butternut squash soup spices. Don’t ask me which ones those are because my brain isn’t that awake yet. So I taste butternut squash, pumpkin and spice. It makes a great tea. I hope they bring this one back.

Flavors: Butternut Squash, Pumpkin, Spices

After sending my relief home for being sick (Food poisoning apparently). I worked a 12hr shift instead of the usual 8. So by the time I woke up for my next shift (now) I was still a bit too sleepy to make a proper tea. Luckily I always have this on hand for those type of occasions. Toss 8oz in then 8oz of milk and I have something to drink ready to go. (midnight into 4 hrs of day shift)

Preparation
Iced

I need energy! It’s the first midnight shift after doing evening shifts for a week so I’m feeling a bit laggy. So I made a cup of this. Orange, Lemon citrus caffeine boost. Oh there was also a little bit of the honeydew matcha still in my cup when I made this… it kindof softens the flavour a bit.

drank Honeydew Matcha by DAVIDsTEA

I recommend this if you like melon bubblegum. When you open the bag you get a good sniff of melon and sugar. With milk (cow) this one was a little lighter on the bubblegum flavour and more like a tea.

Flavors: Melon

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 16 OZ / 473 ML

I also bought a matcha maker in Navy Blue so I can make matcha a bit quicker on the go. :D

Fjellrev

I wish this one would go on sale eventually. Hope you enjoy your matcha maker!

drank Just Beet It by DAVIDsTEA

I tried this cold from David’s Tea and it’s tart and berry tasting. I couldn’t really pick up on anything specific and it wasn’t terrible.. it’s just not something I would order again. I do have a sample of it from the sale bin though and I will try it at home because maybe I just don’t like the way it was made.

Flavors: Berry

drank Pumpkin Maté by DAVIDsTEA

Today is a mate day. At least if I want to stay awake that is. I cycled a few extra kms just to get my Harte Trail badge in Ingress. Totally worth it but I didn’t get to bed until a bit after midnight. Then the thunderstorm woke me up this morning (stupid loud thunder!) so a nice pumpkinny mate is just what I need.

A nice lemony ginger kick start to the day. I was looking up mates and guayusas as I want something more lemony cream but with the same caffeine kick. (dang you Good Morning Sunshine I have high expectations now) However the only ones I found were expensive to ship to Canada… (dang you Canada Post driving up costs) So I shall have to search the limited tea houses around here and hope for the best. Maybe a mate will do if I can find the right one. ( And so the legendary search continues)

Flavors: Ginger, Lemon

It’s approx. $17.50 for shipping on tea from fusion teas. They have a nice selection of mates I want to try.

I still thank the tea god that this made the permanent collection. I remember when I first tried it, it was only seasonal and a pain to get. This is a very nice pumpkin tea.

Flavors: Clove, Pumpkin

Is it really? Either way, it’s nice to see that you can pretty much count on them on offering it. It’s so annoying when companies make something amazing but make it LE. LUSH is famous for that. Like damnit, just make sure if it’s that popular already.

Helena

well you can get pumpkin chai anytime now. But when it first came out it LE. Yeah but LUSH isn’t the only company that does that. Just when I fall in love with something it disappears. Vanilla Chai frapps at McDonald’s for instance as they are seasonal. (tastes like Starbucks Vanilla bean frap but cheaper)

Fjellrev

Ah, guess I haven’t noticed it on the tea wall. Awesome then! Oh cool, I didn’t even know that McDonald’s made that. Do they just make it around the holidays?

Oh yeah, for sure many other companies do it. I just especially can’t stand when companies do it when it leads to this craze where people are selling something for 10-15x the price on eBay, especially when that product can easily be remade.

Helena

McDonald’s sells it in the summer months. So in winter I have to buy Starbucks to compensate.

Fjellrev

Oh snap, i see it’s on their site. Maybe I’ll try that tomorrow before it goes away. You are such a bad influence! Haha

Roswell Strange

Actually, Pumpkin Chai is still seasonal…

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

drank Cotton Candy by DAVIDsTEA

Made my final cup of this one for the ride to work. I made this one cold and it definitely changed things a bit. The flavour is less intense then when you make it hot. It’s still there it’s just not smacking you in the head anymore which is actually nice. While I won’t buy more because I’m tired of it, I still recommend it for people who love cotton candy.
