drank Sweet Potato Pie by DAVIDsTEA
1468 tasting notes

I don’t know that I’ve ever had a sweet potato pie, which seems like a poor testament to all the years I’ve spent living in Texas. I’ve had candied sweet potato casserole on Thanksgiving and I’ve had a slew of pumpkin pies. I imagine that both are similar.

This arrived today along with a new travel tumbler and the Halloween skeleton gummy bear pouch. I wonder what awesome Halloween merch we missed out on because of Covid. That skeleton animal thing David’s gave us a glimpse of was a really cool idea.

I noticed this tea was pretty additive heavy. Large chunks of rock sugar and potato pieces mixed in with comparatively little tea, so I scooped a little more than normal for a cup. There was such a strong sweet cinnamon scent when steeping this. Tiny roommate commented on how good the kitchen smelled. When I sip this I get a rich and creamy spiced sweet potato flavor. If I sip too frequently the flavors go away, but if I pace myself each sip is delightful. I do wish I could control the amount of sugar I’m drinking since I try to keep it limited, but I guess I can make an acceptation for a more novelty type tea.

I found sweet potato pie to be incredibly similar to pumpkin.

Now I want to have a taste test for science…. totally not just because I want to eat pumpkin and pumpkin like pies.

I need to find more things to do with sweet potatoes after buying a 30lbs box. Smoothies might be just the thing. Are they precooked or raw?
I saw that free shipping thing. And I need to look away. LOL!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
