I’m back and I need to get busy on getting caught up! I had a very stressful couple of weeks and wasn’t able to do much except deal with the issues at hand. Now that things have settled down somewhat, I can focus on getting my tea notes caught up on Steepster!

This tea smells delightful. Warm and cinnamon-y, with notes of pumpkin. It is also a very visually appealing tea with it’s cute little pumpkin shaped candies sprinkled throughout the blend. Normally, I’m not a big advocate on the candy sprinkles because they don’t really add anything to the blend, the sweetness they add is barely noticeable (if at all). Their only real purpose in a blend is to make the blend visually appealing and here, these candy sprinkles are doing their job. It is whimsical and cute but really unnecessary. Even so, they did bring a smile to my face because they’re so darned cute.

The cinnamon is not overpowering in this blend, and it shouldn’t be. And I can actually taste pumpkin! The black tea is a mellow tasting black – I suspect a Ceylon – but it isn’t so mellow that it hides behind the flavors of cinnamon and spice and pumpkin.

Definitely an autumnal tea, but it was nice to indulge in a cup of pumpkin pie in May too. It’s a good blend and I’d be happy to drink it again.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
