From DAVIDsTEA

Let’s dabble in fall, shall we? Before you take the plunge into a full-blown PSL, dip your toes in this delicate and approachable pumpkin blend with only a touch of spice. On a white tea base, discover notes of cooked cream, white chocolate, coconut and pumpkin seeds seamlessly blended in this demure autumnal staple.

What makes it great

Want the pumpkin spice feeling without the in-your-face flavour? This is the blend for you. Light spice and soft pumpkin gives you fall vibes without overpowering your palate.

Great alternative to Pumpkin Chai – a bit less intense, while serving all your fave fall time flavours.

Add a splash of milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon for a decadent treat, perfect in a tumbler for a walk through the pumpkin patch.

I absolutely could not resist ordering when I saw this tea released, as I’m always looking for new fall goodies to try. I decided to go for it, despite the stevia, hoping it wouldn’t be detectable. This smells absolutely delicious. Warm and cozy, with tons of nutmeg and clove. My excitement was dashed when I took my first sip. So.much.stevia. It absolutely ruins an otherwise lovely tea. So irritating. I cannot understand why DT continues to put stevia in their blends. I tried to push past the awful stevia flavor, because the tea is lovely otherwise. Nope, almost instant headache. Stupid stevia.

(DavidsTea 168)

New tea! Could not resist; I just had to get the new teas when they came out. I wasn’t sure what I’d think about this given the comparisons to Pumpkin Creme Brulee – which I really wanted to love but definitely did not. However – I really like the flavour of this one! I think the inclusion of white tea is a bit of a joke, but the white chocolate/coconut is almost coming off a bit cream cheesy to me (yum!) and the spice blend used here just really works well (kind of classic pumpkin spice, maybe a bit of nutmeg). I agree with a comment that it might be better if the mouthfeel was a bit thicker, but I thought it was ok despite this. It was definitely better hot than when it had cooled, which seems pretty typical of teas with chocolate/sprinkles etc. Overall pleasantly surprised. Might pick up another 50g if it ends up on sale at some point.

Oh, hello new tea friend!

Yesterday the Frequent Steeper/Super Steep “sneak peek” for the fall collection was released, and with it a handful of new teas and a bunch of gorgeous new autumnal themed teaware. There’s soooo much orange teaware in this collection and I am in love.

This is one of the two new pumpkin blends this year – the first being Pumpkin Earl Grey which was first showcased in the autumn subscription box as early access. There really aren’t a whole lot of white tea based pumpkin blends out there in the world, and this is definitely the first time that DT has made a white tea and pumpkin blend.

I go back and forth on this one because I find it a bit hard to summarize/simplify exactly what the flavour is. It’s not really a pumpkin spice, but there are some spices. It’s not totally full blown “pumpkin flavoured” pumpkin but it does taste of pumpkin, and it’s not as extreme of a “pumpkin dessert” blend as past teas like Pumpkin Creme Brulee. I guess, if I had to compare, I’d say it’s most similar to Pumpkin Creme Brulee in taste. There’s definitely some overlap of white chocolate creaminess, for sure. However, more than anything else I just find it an interesting intersection of autumnal flavours.

Things I personally love are that it has these gorgeous dark green pumpkin seeds scattered throughout the blend – they add just the faintest little but of nuttiness but mostly they’re a breathtaking visual in the tea. As someone who doesn’t enjoy heavy handed “pumpkin spice” I find the super soft cinnamon notes of the pumpkin pie flavouring just perfect to put me in that headspace without turning me off flavour wise. Lastly the slight citrusy squash note of the pumpkin in the finish makes me happy.

The things that I suppose I dislike are that, despite a clear white chocolate and coconut flavour, the mouthfeel is rather thin and oily to me – I personally wish that this was just more dense like a pumpkin milkshake versus the light and airy sweet/creamy interpretation. However, I recognize that going heavy handed like that would sort of defeat the purpose of using a white tea base. I also feel like the apple comes out a bit too much because there’s a present fruity undertone that is a tad mismatched to me.

There are other pumpkin teas I like much better than this one, but there’s certainly some I like less too – like Pumpkin Creme Brulee. More than anything else, though, I just really appreciate how unique this tea is & I think it’s a nice autumnal addition for people looking for something familiar yet different.

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 and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

Came here specifically for some new tea reviews – sounds like this is one I’ll just start with 50g of! I wasn’t a big fan of Pumpkin Creme Brulee and not stoked about the thin/oily mouthfeel… but I gotta try it anyways!
