drank Spiced Pumpkin by DAVIDsTEA
2899 tasting notes

Whoa, I just realized I had two pouches of Spiced Pumpkin and two pouches of Pumpkin Cheesecake and haven’t written tasting notes for either one!  sigh.  I don’t even know where the other Spiced Pumpkin might be and it is a rarity for me not to know the general area of a tea.  This is a well organized mess (at least in my head).  This pouch is from M Mack a while ago — thank you!   Using 1 1/2 teaspoons, this one is actually quite pleasant.  I wouldn’t say it is overtly pumpkin but major points to Davidstea for actually including pumpkin in a “spiced pumpkin” blend.  It seems obvious, but I swear 90% of pumpkin teas from any tea shop with PUMPKIN actually in the name doesn’t even contain actual pumpkin.  You’d think it would be easy and cheap to chop up big pumpkins and add them to teas.  I don’t know — I’m not a tea magician.  But there is a lovely pumpkin squashy vegetal flavor here, especially when it’s cooled.  A creamy quality along with the spiciness. Some interesting ingredients here like maple crystals and “whipped cream”.  What the heck?  I wonder how.  I like that the honeybush is the base.  All the ingredients here meld into deliciousness. I have to remember to use 1 1/2 teaspoons in the future… and definitely find that second pouch wherever it happens to be…

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
