I really need to start both a sip-down challenge and a sell/swap pile. My stash is getting a bit out of hand.
This is a fairly recent purchase for me. I’m not a huge fan of green teas, but I’ve been looking for a nice spiced pumpkin tea that has pumpkin in it but doesn’t have carrot in the ingredient list. Plus, it’s named “Pumpkin Juice.” How could I not buy it?
I’m having it as an iced latte this morning, but I’ve sampled it hot and unsweetened too.
Hot and straight, it tastes like spiced apple cider – y’know the kind you make in a crockpot for company over the holidays. But it’s not just any old spiced apple cider, it’s spiced apple cider that’s been warming away with slices of pumpkin added to the mix. It’s very warming and comforting, especially on cool mornings. The green tea base isn’t bitter or overly assertive. I don’t taste much pineapple, but that’s fine by me. Pineapple isn’t normally my jam. The level of spice is just right.
It’s quite nice as an iced latte as well. I think the addition of dairy makes it taste more like a baked good – like apple cake batter. The pumpkin flavor is lost in my cup this morning, but it’s still a nice lil’ drink. I’ll just have to remember to enjoy it hot when I’m wanting a tea that tastes of pumpkin.
52Teas is quickly becoming one of my favorite tea companies. I’ve just been so impressed with so many of their blends lately.
