My morning cup!
This is a light pumpkin spice blend, which I do not mean to sound as an insult at all. It may be light, but that’s one of its selling points. Too often teas with pumpkin spice in them are horrible, heavy, clove filled things, so to have the spices be lighter is quite refreshing.
I do wish the actual taste of pumpkin was richer, but overall I enjoy this.

This is pretty delicious. I really like the pumpkin in this and the spice works. It isn’t over the top spice. It is light and in the background. The black base works really well with this blend as well. I picked up only a sample of this one because I was a little scare of the base, but it works. A hit.

This came as a sample with my order today. I am not jazzed by the black tea base, but the pumpkin spice flavor is subtle and warming.

A Quarter to Tea is a handblended tea shop started by Lauren in what the Etsy page says was 2011. How has the Steepsterers not known about A Quarter to Tea for so long? I’m shocked that not many of the teas have been reviewed yet. I’m glad she has finally introduced herself to Steepster! Saying hello to Steepster is always a good idea. :D Really, looking at the blends, I was thinking they are a bit Butikiesque (yes, that is a word now.) I want to try them ALL! Most of the flavor combinations seem to be exactly the teas I have been looking for. I was drooling at all of the amazing blends that A Quarter to Tea has to offer, so I just had to bite when samples were offered. There is now also the option of choose-your-own sample packs: http://www.etsy.com/shop/AQuarterToTea

On to the tea: I asked Lauren to send me the most pumpkiny of the FOUR pumpkin teas offered. The blend here reminds me of Della Terra’s or David’s Tea’s Pumpkin blends (due to similar leaves and the cute pumpkin sprinkles!) But those blends didn’t have this cinnamon or pumpkin seeds! Like those teas, the black tea is a little on the light side for me, but to be fair, I did fill up the mug when the suggested parameters say one teaspoon of leaves for six ounces of tea. I tried to do a little better on the remaining teaspoon the next day with better results. There are wisps of a creamy pumpkin flavor through the Ceylon as well as hints of cinnamon. The second steep was even more cinnamon. I’m not sure what flavor the pumpkin seeds add to the tea, but they are a nice touch. I probably could have used two teaspoons for a full 11-12 ounce mug though – especially with this black tea base. A lovely start to A Quarter To Tea!
First day: Steep #1 // 1 tsp // 7 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3-4 minute steep
Second day: Steep #1 // 1 tsp // 5 minutes after boiling // mug filled 3/4 to the top // 3-4 min steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // few minute steep

The Etsy shop was actually paper goods for a good portion of that time! It only converted to handcrafted tea this year after doing local farmer’s markets and craft fairs and then getting the right licensing to sell tea out of state and such. So you haven’t missed it, it just wasn’t there!

Ah okay! I thought it might be something like that.

QAing tea is great. I had to make sure my ratios scaled up to blending a larger batch, so it’s a been a fun Saturday morning (no sarcasm, I promise!)

I really like my pumpkin spice teas to have a pumpkin taste to them, so that’s really what I tried to do here.

The initial taste is the pumpkin spice trifecta: cinnamon, clove and a touch of nutmeg with a satisfying punch of black tea. The pumpkin really steps out after the cup cools for 5-10 minutes (which is easy, because I’m great at forgetting my cups, everywhere). The finish is crisp with a lingering of pumpkin.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend!
