drank Pumpkin by The Angry Tea Room
2799 tasting notes

I can’t remember who sent me this, but it is labelled as “Angry Pumpkin” – Angry Tea Room.

I only used 1 tsp in a coldbrew, so I still have 5 tsp left. It is good though, I am not in a hurry to get rid of it.

Strong black base, slightly bitter. Strong flavours of cardamom, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, light on the ginger (chai spices). Lightly nutty. Overall, it is a good chai that makes me think of autumn or winter. I didn’t enjoy the base, but maybe 1 hour was too long a steep. I forgot I had it brewing until I went into the kitchen to find snacks (I ate some macadamia nuts…good pairing!) It isn’t something I would buy, but I did enjoy getting to taste it.

Flavors: Bitter, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Nutmeg, Nutty, Tannic

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 1 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
