Tea Advent Calendar – Day 4

I was excited to see another AQTT blend in the calendar today, as they’re one of my favorite companies! However, I didn’t love my first cup of this one. I definitely get the pumpkin flavor, but nothing that reminds me of brittle…no nuttiness or sweetness that I can detect. Others have definitely picked up on those flavors in their tasting notes though, so I’m not giving up on this one! Shae sent a very generous sample, so I’m going to try different steeping parameters and may also add a bit of honey to my next cup to see if I can get that caramel flavor to pop.

Flavors: Pumpkin

I hope you find a way to bring out the brittle flavor. That’s the part I was most excited about!

Sipdown (270)

The smell of this one reminded me of DAVIDsTEA Pumpkin Chai. I think the mix of pumpkin, caramel, and spice had my mind drifting to Pumpkin Chai. Also, both have the little pumpkin sprinkles. Anyways, tastewise, this is a lot nuttier than Pumpkin Chai and with a lot more spice. It’s nice enough but AQ2T has a very particular spice blend with a lot of their Fall/Winter teas and it is not my favorite. That spice blend is present here as well which makes this feel familiar and a bit boring. I like the nuttiness though.

In other news, my new obsession is candles. Since I have my own apartment with no little animals running around who might get hurt, I burn them often and they just make things cozier and delightful. I told my friend this and she said between my love of tea, reading, and no candles, she thinks I should have been a librarian. Alas, just like my tea collection, I can see my love of candles getting out of hand if I am not careful. MUST. RESIST. THE. URGE. TO. SPEND!

I love flames! LOL It started with candles, and I have added hurricane lamps, lanterns, corks that float on oil and water with a wick, glass tealight holders that float in a bowl or a pool or your bath, incense burners (sort of counts?), and a reproduction of a clay pot with a wick dangling out like would have been used thousands of years ago. I would love to get a clock candle and a courting candle someday…if I had room. Enjoy the flickering flames safely!

VariaTEA

Don’t give me ideas. Candles already seem like an expense. Thankfully I am holding strong…sorta…I bought candles on Black Friday but that doesnt count, right?!?!

Made a return to this one today, because I’m starting to feel just a little bit autumnal. Today is cooler than it’s been for a while, and so I think that’s inspired a huge degree of wishful thinking – at least as far as tea goes!

I really enjoy this one. It captures the spirit of its name perfectly, with a prominent, distinctive pumpkin seed flavour and an undertone of hard caramel. I’ve got enough left for one more cup, but after that I know I’m going to feel especially bereft. I hope this makes a return for autumn this year!

Drank this almost a couple weeks ago and missed logging it. It was pretty tasty, though nothing I’d want to restock. Can’t recall exactly how it tasted, but it was lightly sweet and spiced.

Yum…I’ve never had actual pumpkin seed brittle, but that sounds pretty tasty. Craving fall weather—and all the goodies that come with it!

Another from variaTEA. I’ll hold my rating on this one as i goofed on the steeping paramters since i wanted to try this as a latte later. I’ve never had pumpkin seed brittle..but there’s a nutiness from this one and a little bit of pumpkin coming through.

Iced Tea Sipdown (614)!

I’m glad I found this tea and pulled it out to sip on now; with Halloween only a few days away this feels like a really appropriate time to be revisiting this tea. Having it iced was interesting because it’s definitely more of a spicy and savory profile. The taste is just super overwhelmingly spicy with a heck of a lot of clove, allspice, cinnamon, and ginger. However, there’s also a molasses and caramel sort of sweetness to the undertone and then top notes which are more earthy and seemingly “unrefined”. Plus, of course, the overarching tasting of roasted pumpkin seeds – which are a little nutty.

I’d have enjoyed it all on its own, but I decided to drink it with a Caramel Brulee flavour “rock sugar straw” also – and that just added a little bit of extra sweetness which did help to balance the spices a little bit, and highlight a little more of those nuttier elements in the blend.

It was a very pleasant, on seasonally on the nose, sipdown!

I have some of this that I probably should try.

At first glance, this is your typical AQ2T sweet dessert tea, with a dash of fall scent and spice. Salty-sweet caramel brittle flavour is delivered (strongly) as promised, followed by the oily-nut quality of pumpkin seeds. The spices remind me of those fall candles or what you’d find in one of those pumpkin muffins- something cinnamon-nutmegy, mixed into icing, that lingers as an aftertaste.

My main complaint is some of that spicing/flavouring comes across as a bitter powdery texture midsip.

Not sure that I love it, but it is a tasty seasonal cup! The loose blend is also delightfully festive, with green pumpkin seeds and orange pumpkin sprinkles.
