The last lovely blend I have to review from Angry Tea Room. This is a magical blend. The mix actually smells very strongly of pumpkin pie! The ingredients: actual pumpkin and sweet potato, caramel, nutmeg, ginger, mace, chicory, buckwheat, toasted rice, pumpkin seeds all on a rooibos/honeybush base. The flavor is very much like pumpkin pie. Very spicy and full of goodness! Though the ingredients mention pumpkin flakes and sweet potato, I wish there were more for even more of that flavor. I wish it were a pumpkin explosion! I don’t know why more pumpkin blends don’t use pumpkin in their blends, since one pumpkin would go a long way for a tea blend. I love that is uses a rooibos and honeybush base, so this is definitely a nighttime dessert tea when you don’t happen to have pumpkin pie on hand. This blend contains stevia (I couldn’t tell) but I’m sure it is divine with rock sugar added. A delicious blend. It would brew perfectly in Angry’s ADORABLE pumpkin mugs! I’m definitely getting one!

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

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!
