From Bluebird Tea Co.

The perfect spiced Autumn chai

Spooks are super at spooking, ghouls are good for ghouling + pumpkins are good for, well, pie actually. We’re not quite sure how they got mixed up in all that Halloween lark. Wrong place, wrong

time? All we know for sure is that they make a mean pie with cinnamon, ginger and cloves…. spooked or spiced? You decide.

Check out our recipe for the perfect spiced pumpkin chai latte to make at home!

Ceylon Black Tea, Ceylon black tea, Carrot, Candy bats and pumpkins, Cinnamon, Ginger, Cloves

And that’s the end of this one! (91)

It’s funny that I did my pumpkin pie tea-off, and then finished off the pumpkin teas that were my least favourite, while completely ignoring the Della Terra one that I really did enjoy. :P

I guess now that this and DAVIDsTEA’s pumpkin chai are out of the way, I can focus on the better one?

I’m super excited at the moment, because my Bluebird Tea Co. order arrived yesterday, and this tea is now officially back in my cupboard. It’s been too long! I also picked up samples of their other autumn blends (Kung Flu Fighter!, Nuts About You, and Pudina Chai). Of these, Pudina Chai is probably the one that has me most intrigued, because I’ve never tried a mint-based chai before. There’s always a first time. The other exciting thing about my Bluebird order was that they also put in a sample of this year’s Christmas Cake blend. That got me running back to their website to see if the rest of the Christmas stuff is available yet – seriously, they have the cutest hampers this year! They’re not in stock yet, which is probably a very good thing for my bank account, but I’m eyeing one up as a present to myself.

Yay tea!


Sounds über tasty!


Sipping this one now – sad that not many people on Steepster have tried this one. :/


It’s so good, and yet so little known. Such a shame!

I’ve been drinking this tea for a week or so but haven’t yet logged a review.

It smells strongly of clove and cinnamon spice. It’s like having a warm hug from Autumn as I sniff it.

Flavour wise it’s of medium strength which features a malty yet smoky black taste, refreshing but not too strong clove, a pinch of spicy cinnamon and a sweet squash/pumpkin flavour. It’s a subtle pumpkin tea with the focus being on the spice itself but with that said I still very much like this blend.

A drop of soy milk in my second cup adds a nice creamy flavour and texture. It also smooths out the clove and it tastes more cardamom like now.

I think this is a very nice Autumn tea and I’m glad I bought a pack to try. :)

Additional notes: I was trying this one again (only one teaspoon of my sample left!), to see if I liked it as much as I remembered. It is better than I remembered! I don’t know if it’s the time of year or what, but it just WORKS. The spices are very nice, hints of squash/pumpkin even from the one piece in my infuser. The black tea is lighter but it lets the flavor shine. The cup was even an amber pumpkin orange. I’ll definitely be ordering this one. ONE teaspoon.. not even heaping. So so good.
Just boiled // 3 min // 6 min

If anyone is interested, there will definitely be a bluebirdteaco.com group order happening! A chance to try these amazing teas (haven’t tried a terrible one yet!) and split the $15-20 shipping costs. More info here: http://steepster.com/discuss/9558-bluebird-tea-co-group-order-accepting-orders


A group order is a genius idea, especially for overseas stuff!

I was considering this one, but then I noticed that it doesn’t even have pumpkin in OR flavoring. So how is it pumpkin…? The pieces mixed in are carrots.


Yeah, before I tried it I was wondering why it didn’t have pumpkin, but there is something about the carrot that makes it taste squashy and the spices are delicious anyway. I wish they WOULD put pumpkin in the blend though (like dehydrated pumpkin pie filling!)

KittyLovesTea sent such a generous amount of this tea, I’ve been able to enjoy it again and again. I wish more pumpkin teas were available year-round. This one is so tasty.

Now I will enjoy this delicious tea with my grilled cheese sandwich with apple. :)


I did not have the grilled cheese experience but it sounds delish.


Never had it as a kid but totally love it as an adult :)


I’ve never heard of it, but sounds like a good combo. We like to dip apples in our cheese fondue.. Sweet & salty= Yum!

Another company I’ve considered an order with. Like their apple strudel & this sounds good too.


It’s delicious! I occasionally check out their website, but I can never quite reach the free shipping threshold, so I’m holding off for now.


I was considering doing their monthly box for a bit. You can request teas you would like to try and they take that into consideration when they ship to you.

I love when companies have great sales or free shipping for a time.. I’m a sucker for a good buy !


I didn’t even know they had a monthly box hah! There are very few teas I want to order from them, ahem 2, haha! Free shipping sales suck me in too hah.


I just stumbled on it when I was looking at their site. It’s called their “tasting club”. You get 3 samples (8-10 cups each) every month. I haven’t decided if I’d rather do that or just order a couple I think we would like.


Neat! I have yet to sign up for any monthly clubs, but I’ll have to check out their website.


Ooh the prices include postage! That in it itself makes it more tempting.

Pumpkin tea week continues!
This is a nice, but unremarkable pumpkin pie blend. Its flavors are pretty standard, and while I’m not whacked over the head with the sensation of pie, it is a nice cup.
Alas, no pumpkin tea currently in the cupboard makes me sing with full pumpkin delight. I’ll have to settle for pumpkin contentedness, I suppose.

Aroma: spicy, similar to many chai blends, but when steeped this tea is buttery, and creamy, and sweet smelling. And. Oh. So. Very. Tempting.

Flavour: A sudden bitterness that quickly gives way to the spices, buttery pumpkin notes and finally, a sweet vanilla, that lasts into the finish and keeps you coming back for more. A dash of milk removes much of the bitterness of the Ceylon, creating a cup where every mouthful is to be savoured, radiating buttery, creamy vanilla hints and spiced notes. Think chai with an autumnal pumpkin twist.

Final Thoughts: In true Bluebird fashion, they have near flawlessly captured the essence of homey autumn evenings in this teas sweet aroma, delicious flavour and autumnal colours. It didn’t take more than a few sips to completely understand why this tea is a winner. For me, a dash of milk made this tea into perfection. GOD. ITS. SO. DAMN. GOOD. Words just can’t do Spiced Pumpkin Pie justice.

Thank you Scheherazade for the sample!

I was really happy to get a chance to swap with you again. Hoping you love the matcha.

This is my first pick from the goodies Scheherazade sent me; I asked for a random mix of stuff, and she certainly didn’t disappoint. Random is my new go to: I always end up with things I’d never have picked for myself and quite often I end up pleasantly surprised. That’s the case with this one, for sure: I’d have avoided it ’cause of the “spice” element and the fact pumpkin teas so rarely ever taste like actual pumpkin.

This is great though: first and foremost I very clearly taste the flavour of real pumpkin and that definitely makes this better than most “pumpkin” teas which typically drown out any actual pumpkin in the blend with pumpkin spices. And on that note, while I totally taste the cinnamon and ginger in the blend they’re subdued in comparison to the flavour of the pumpkin and the cinnamon really just reinforces the pie element of the tea because it makes me think of pie crust. I don’t find them intrusive or drowning at all which is a big relief. I don’t even mind the ginger.

As well, there’s a sweetness to the tea which is appropriate to the notion of pie filling. I’d never add sweetener to this myself as that’d be over the top, but what’s here seems almost natural while capturing that confectionery element. Of course, it isn’t natural: it’s definitely from the candy bats in the blend – but that’s fine. It’s not artificial tasting. It’s like brown sugar and vanilla? Without actually being brown sugar or vanilla though.

Final observation/comment: While I normally don’t lean towards Ceylon I think that it’s appropriate as a base here because it does have such a mild/soft flavour compared to a lot of black teas and that suits blends well, especially blends that focus on flavours as delicate as pumpkin. Squash in general doesn’t pack a lot of “oomph” as a flavour. Not the same way other fruits/veggies do.

Really, really impressed and surprised with this blend! Only small criticism is that I wish there was a stronger taste of the clove.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Ginger, Pumpkin, Sweet, Sweet Potatoes, Vanilla


Glad you liked it :) It’s my favourite pumpkin tea.


Love this one.

Another sample sent from Nattie!

I enjoyed a mug of this yesterday at work after lunch. It seems more of a natural tasting pumpkin tea, vs a lot of the chemically flavoured ones. I mean maybe this is too, but there are actual bit of pumpkin in there rather than candy bits, so that’s a plus to me!

Again the base was a little weak to me, though I left it steeping for like 10 minutes and nothing bad happened, haha. So it’s forgiving!

It was a pleasant cup, though to me it was definitely more of a pumpkin enhanced chai than a pumpkiny dessert tea.

I don’t think I’d buy it but was great to try!

Thanks Scheherazade for including this in our swap!

I love pumpkin teas, but often I find the pumpkin is missing and all you get is the spices. But with the tea, the pumpkin is the most prominent with the spices taking the back seat. One of the best pumpkin teas I’ve tried, wish I could purchase this easily :(


Oh I will def be ordering from Bluebird when the autumn and holiday teas are available at the same time.. hope that’s possible. I keep saying it will be the only teas I order for the rest of the year… yeah right.
