Love it! I got just 2 0z of this because it was on sale and I wanted to get free shipping. So this pushed me over the threshold. Purchased on a whim because I like sweet and cozy things. And this tastes perfectly sweet and cozy. And lately when I drink any black tea or coffee I feel uncomfortably jittery because I limit caffeine… I had no problem with this even drinking after 3pm. Maybe I am just getting back used to caffeine though. Had with milk.

I wanted to try this and finally had the opportunity to buy it while it was in stock with free shipping.  I had to order it, if I could get free shipping while not buying anything else.   The blend actually has butternut squash and sweet potato, so it already wins points.  However, I thought these were tiny apple cubes, but looking at the ingredients list, no apple.   Also, marshmallows.  Also, pecans!  When hot, the first sips definitely have noticeable squash/sweet potato notes.  But as it cools, the sweetness of the rock sugar takes over… which I recognize from another tea, probably also from Davids.  These rock sugar pieces take on a boozy characteristic, which I don’t really want to see here.  It REALLY takes over the mug. Maybe it will get better with age/time.  The base black tea looks unique – it looks very scarlet and longer leafed than a typical Davids tea.  I really wanted a thick squash, sweet potato, pecan, marshmallow mug but it’s just boozy. 
Steep #1  // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 21 minutes after boiling  // 2 1/2 minute steep
Steep #2  // just boiled //  3 minute steep

Been super curious about this one. Have seen lots of high rated reviews for the blend and I almost ordered it a few times.

tea-sipper

Yeah, maybe it’s just me though…

Leafhopper

I laughed at your “ancient Santa’s Secret” sipdown. I have a half-full tin of ancient Snow Day from … five years ago? I really only drink it during the holidays.

Lexie Aleah

It’s funny you say that because my mom told me she wanted to try this blend too but by the time she told me that. The free shipping deal was over.

tea-sipper

Yep, have ancient Snow day too. And then fresh Snow Day that can be added to the tin when that is done. haha

I don’t know that I’ve ever had a sweet potato pie, which seems like a poor testament to all the years I’ve spent living in Texas. I’ve had candied sweet potato casserole on Thanksgiving and I’ve had a slew of pumpkin pies. I imagine that both are similar.

This arrived today along with a new travel tumbler and the Halloween skeleton gummy bear pouch. I wonder what awesome Halloween merch we missed out on because of Covid. That skeleton animal thing David’s gave us a glimpse of was a really cool idea.

I noticed this tea was pretty additive heavy. Large chunks of rock sugar and potato pieces mixed in with comparatively little tea, so I scooped a little more than normal for a cup. There was such a strong sweet cinnamon scent when steeping this. Tiny roommate commented on how good the kitchen smelled. When I sip this I get a rich and creamy spiced sweet potato flavor. If I sip too frequently the flavors go away, but if I pace myself each sip is delightful. I do wish I could control the amount of sugar I’m drinking since I try to keep it limited, but I guess I can make an acceptation for a more novelty type tea.

I found sweet potato pie to be incredibly similar to pumpkin.

Dustin

Now I want to have a taste test for science…. totally not just because I want to eat pumpkin and pumpkin like pies.

Mastress Alita

I put cubes of frozen sweet potato in my pumpkin smoothies!

Note to anyone: Davids still has free shipping on any order and Sweet Potato Pie is available again.

Martin Bednář

They don’t ship here. sob

tea-sipper

aw, sorry Martin. :/

Dustin

I need to find more things to do with sweet potatoes after buying a 30lbs box. Smoothies might be just the thing. Are they precooked or raw?
I saw that free shipping thing. And I need to look away. LOL!

When I don’t know what tea I want, I have a randomizer on my excel spreadsheet to help me choose. When I don’t have my laptop, however, I open up steepster on my phone and ask my sister to pick a number between 1 and 16 (the # of steepster pages I have). Then I ask her to pick a number between 1 and 18 (the # of teas on a page). The last time she did this, she picked this tea and I made a latte.

For the first number, she almost always picks 3 so today I changed the sorting from the default “most drank” to “recently added”, figuring I’d end up with different teas. However, today she went with 12 and somehow magically ended up picking this tea again. I guess she just really wants me to drink my giant bag of sweet potato pie (thanks again Roswell Strange!).

I told Roswell Strange about this and mentioned how I didn’t really want a latte. She told me to make this one anyways since it’s good plain. I was skeptical but she’s right. It’s better as a latte because it gives it much needed body and rounds this out a bit. Plain, it’s still got the nice sweet potato and pastry flavors, it’s just the tiniest bit flat. That’s where the milk helps.

CrowKettle

Hmm.. another one to add to the David’s tea order list.

Sil

it’s good crowkettle. Well at least i also think so lol

tea-sipper

Oh I should try picking teas with two numbers…

TTB #5

Honestly, this blend is not really something I would have picked up on my own, as I’m not the biggest sweet potato pie fan. But I’ve seen such positive reviews from others and there was just enough left for one cup in the TTB, so I decided to give it a go. And wow…this is SO GOOD! It smells just like a pie baking and the flavor is pure decadence: creamy and spicy and sweet and rich with a unique flavor that I don’t remember ever tasting in tea before (I think it’s the allspice). The black tea base was such a good call…it gives this blend a depth that you just don’t get with herbals. Overall, this is a pretty amazing tea – maybe the best thing I’ve ever had from David’s Tea! – and I’m really sad I can’t get my hands on more right now. Fingers crossed they bring it back for the holidays next year!

This tea is wonderful. Sweet and full flavor, though not quite the flavor of sweet potato pie. Great with a little honey, too. Would re-purchase.

Day 23 of our Advent Tea Swap. From amandastory516.

There were so many great reviews for this tea a month or so ago. By the time I decided I needed to order some for myself, it was already sold out. Bummer. So imagine my delight to see that Amanda sent a generous sample of her own precious stash to share with me! This blend is mostly baby marshmallows and large pecan pieces which makes it so fun. The spice is delicious and the nuts give it just a bit of toastiness. My brother had a cup with me also and he remarked that it tastes just like the Little Debbie Pecan Spinwheels. I don’t taste sweet potato but its starchy quality is there. Cinnamon too. So glad I got to try this one!

After hearing so many wonderful things about this tea, I got it as a latte at David’s. Heaven in a cup. This isn’t only the best tea in their fall/seasonal/holiday lineup…it’s one of the best teas they have, period. Naturally I bought some loose to make at home as well. This is basically a warm slice of pie in a cup. If you are a sweet potato pie fan, this tea is a must have, but I also feel compelled to urge people to try it even if they aren’t a sweet potato pie fan. You might not enjoy the pie itself, but you will enjoy this tea. It’s spiced just right, not being overly spiced, and letting it’s sweetness shine through. The cinnamon, marshmallows and pecans compliment the sweet potato notes so well. I just can’t express enough how much I love this flavor. I need to stock up because I’m pretty sure I’ll be going through my 2 oz bag extremely quickly. I know Sweet Potato is a seasonal flavor but I would love for it to be available all year. Or at the very least, a guarantee that it will be back each year for the holiday season.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Marshmallow, Pecan, Sweet Potatoes

It’s been a while since I reviewed a tea, so here we go. The most anticipated tea of this entire year for me! I only recently got into sweet potato, and when I heard of this, I was very intrigued and excited to get my hands on some. I waited forever for it to become available on the Canadian website. Just got it today and am trying it already. I just steeped a hot cup for about 5 minutes, and added a bit of sugar. It’s really nice – different. I definitely taste the squash, cinnamon, and other spices in there. I’m also catching a bit of that marshmallow taste. Lastly I get that pecan in the aftertaste. This is good hot, but will be amazing as a latte! It’s basically a cup of Fall.
