The smell of this tea is comforting.
It smells like a lot of very fall things, from a pumpkin candle, to a pumpkin pie baking in the oven.
I can taste the pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and just general fall, if that was a taste. The blend was smooth, and the spices where not overwhelming. I get a slight hint of apple in the background as well.
Overall it was a very nice tea, I just think it would be much better as a latte or even with some sort of honey or agave, or maybe maple syrup.
This is a shorter review because I feel the tea was exactly as described, it was well balanced and had a nice aftertaste.
I am just missing that one thing that makes me feel like it is a tea I want to drink everyday all the time… what that is, I am unsure.

Picked 50g of this up on a whim because it was on sale and I hadn’t tried it. A gamble for a rooibos, but the reviews weren’t too bad. Turns out, I actually quite like it! Cardamon-heavy pumpkin-spice-y tea, where the rooibos hardly makes an appearance. There’s a bit of lingering sweetness that I’m not too fond of – reminded me of stevia, but apparently that’s not in the tea (and neither is licorice), so who knows.

On another note, it’s really the best when your tiny child refuses his nap and instead stands screaming in his crib like you’ve abandoned him forever. Sigh.

I love this tea, and not just because the name is awesome. Sweet, warming pumpkin tea.

Now this is a well done pumpkin spice. I was worried because I’ve disliked pumpkin teas from DavidsTEA before, but this one is really nice, and it’s even better with milk. The main flavor is cardamom, but that’s balanced with rooibos and the slight spice of the ginger. It does cause some mouth dryness, and there’s a hint of a strange flavor in there, so this blend isn’t perfect, but I’m having a good time.

This is great to hear – I just picked up 50g of this to try :)

This is very pleasant. A nice cinnamon pumpkin with a little apple. I like it with a little milk and extra sugar.

Why with the sugar DAVIDsTEA?! At least it is not stevia but this is just too sweet. Between pumpkin and carrot, naturally sweet foods, why add more sugar? So I am stuck with a tea that smells kind of spicy but that coats the tongue with sweetness. The cinnamon doesn’t help either. I just don’t get it.

gross

But the big question; does it smell like pickles to you?

VariaTEA

Not that a recall tbh but I’ll sniff the rest and see if I get pickle

I brewed this up strong with vanilla soy milk. Yumm, I really love the pumpkin and carrot in this. It actually tastes like pumpkin instead of just pumpkin pie spices.

Hot with a little chocolate agave, back earlier in the week during my stretch of neck/head pain where I was drinking a lot of spiced teas since they were providing at least a little relief. I actually really liked the addition of chocolate to this; the sweetness of the agave wasn’t too sweet with everything else going on in the blend and the chocolate actually added a sort of depth and “denseness” to the flavor that seemed to create more body, and exaggerate certain spice notes like clove and cardamom.

Quite interesting, as far as additions go.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

Kittenna

Monster Mash? Was this a relabel of something, or a blend I completely missed because I thought it was a relabel?

Nattie

Chocolate agave?? Excitedly Amazons

Roswell Strange

@Kittenna – not a relabel; it was the new Halloween tea this year. Sort of a spiced “Pumpkin Butter” type of thing. @Nattie – I’m using chocolate agave from DAVIDsTEA, but I don’t know that it’s one of the flavours that we carry year round anymore? I’m sure there are other companies who offer similar though.

Nattie

I’m going to have a look and see if I can find something similar. I can’t get DAVIDsTEA over here anyway but you should totally tell them to open a UK shop

Nattie

That last bit was supposed to have a strike through, but the coding got eaten

Kittenna

@Roswell – Dang. I was probably too busy with baby to realize it was new; I’m pretty sure I was in a DT in October and saw the tea, but the tea guides at the store I was at didn’t point it out as being new.
