From Bird & Blend Tea Co.

Perhaps our most loved limited edition blend ever: autumn-spiced pumpkin chai!

The best spiced pumpkin chai in the UK, fact! Made with real tea + spices … We are so excited that our special edition autumn favourite is back for another year! But it’s not around for long Teabirds and once it is gone, it’s gone… so bulk up to see you through!

Have you seen SPP has had a Baby?!! Check out its caffeine-free version, Baby Spice!

Spooks are super at spooking, ghouls are good for ghouling + pumpkins are good for… well, pie. 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.

Sri Lankan black tea, carrot pieces, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, Halloween sprinkles (sugar, potato starch, maltodextrin, vegetable fat, natural colours (e153 vegetable carbon, e163 anthocyanins, e100 turmeric), vanilla pieces, natural flavouring

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!

Fjellrev

Sounds über tasty!

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

Scheherazade

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

Fjellrev

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

Cameron B.

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.

tea-sipper

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. :)

__Morgana__

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

Stephanie

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

Suziqzer

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.

Courtney

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.

Suziqzer

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 !

Courtney

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.

Suziqzer

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.

Courtney

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

Courtney

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

The first few sips I had of this when it was really hot were absolutely amazing. Pure pumpkin pie. I poured a small amount into a separate cup to try it with some milk, and that was great too. Definitely pumpkin with light spices in there. I brought the rest to work, and for some reason, it didn’t taste special anymore. I did overleaf it since I had a little too much leaf for one cup but not enough for two, so maybe that could lead to some flavor confusion. Yeah it just tasted like many other spiced black teas. The spices became more pronounced as it sat. I did enjoy it, but I guess if I ever have this tea again, it either needs to be very hot or with added milk. It made a decent second steep with plenty of starchiness.

Thanks to tea-sipper for the sample!!

September 2019 Subscription.
2 teaspoons, boiling water, grandpa.

Smells amazing when dry, so fresh, so little spicy!
I had quite a lot of carrot in those teaspoons, maybe way too much. And only one or two cloves. Base tea? Mild, but present in taste.

Overall enjoyable tea, without bad notes, not extra spicy. PIEce of tea.

Flavors: Carrot, Cinnamon, Clove

This was one of the 20 gram pouches included in my tea subscription. I am not a big fan of pumpkin pie or pumpkin anything, really. I know a lot of other people who live for this time of the year so they can get their pumpkin fix. Not me.

That said, the tea was smooth, and of course I don’t taste a whole lot anyway. We’ll starting the weekly Wednesday night suppers at church next Wednesday, and the woman who coordinates them is a tea lover and always makes two big pots of tea as well as an urn of coffee. I think I’ll bring this one to share.

Happy Halloween!!!!
I’m trying to like this tea. I doubled the amount of tea in this cup because previous cups have been light on the flavor. It was still lacking. :( The flavors were still a little weak and it seems like there is something missing to tie it all together and really make it shine. The search for the perfect pumpkin tea goes on.

Sipdown machine! Sipdown machiiiiiiine!
This one was nice enough. That’s my final conclusion. A nice pumpkin pie blend, without rocking my socks or shaking my core, but it did its job well enough!
And now its a sipdown! Wooooo!
