This one is also from Mastress Alita. Boy, I was so excited to try this one that I drank most of it when it was too hot to really be able to taste the complexities. Now that it’s cooled a bit and I’m concentrating on the flavors, I can say that the yam flavor is clear, a bit savory, and so fun. I added some whipped cream on top, and that just makes it perfect. It smells and tastes like sweet potato pie! I haven’t tried candied yams before, but I imagine they’re pretty similar? Anyway, I rarely drink a cup of tea as quickly as I’ve finished off this one, so that’s definitely a compliment to this tea.

This was a sample that Bluebird kindly sent with the Boxing Day order I just had to make. It looks like all of the teas on sale are now completely gone from their website! Sad sad. I’m glad I was able to nab a few teas I really wanted to try. This sounds like a fantastic blend of candied yams ingredients…. even some pumpkin, but upon opening the pouch I mostly find the scent of orange. I’m not sure if the recipe usually has orange in candied yams? I’ve always loved the concept of candied yams but never had them (only plain yams – still delicious). The inclusion of rosehip and hibiscus scared me before steeping but the bright orange cup promised no deep red tartness. Bluebird usually keeps the tart tame. There was at least one marshmallow in my infuser, so I was finding a tiny bit of that in the flavor. But definitely a starchy pumpkin quality too. With possibly a hint of spices. And of course some orange. Maybe my proportions of ingredients was a little off in the infuser and doesn’t usually have so much orange? A lovely idea for a blend but this one could use a little work to make it even more delicious (a little too much orange). …but then as the cup cooled it was even tastier, and the second steep the next night had me missing this tea already. There is still some on Bluebird’s site for a limited time if anyone wants to give it a try. And if you go for the 150 grams, I’ll buy some from you!

This tea sounds amazing… any time I hear the work “pumpkin” I perk up, hahaha!

Lexie Aleah

often orange juice is added to candied yams for flavor.

Thanks for the info, Lexie Aleah, I figured it would be something like that. Bluebird wouldn’t throw orange in for no reason. I was just too lazy to look up recipes. :D

Mastress Alita – there definitely aren’t enough actual pumpkin teas out there! It’s such a big and cheap ingredient, I’d think one pumpkin would go FAR in tea ingredients.
