My first tea from Deb! I figured I would break into the free samples first, since the other packages are completely sealed and I would rather leave them that way until I get some more sipdowns in. Plus it sounded good!

First, let me just say that Deb is amazing. The package she sent me was covered in cute holographic stickers and filled with pretty tissue paper. She included a little paperback notebook with types of tea printed on the cover, and wrote me a sweet (and rather extensive) note in a cute tea-themed card. All this in addition to the free goodies I got because of the weekly special! What a sweet person she clearly is. Thanks, Deb!


I actually mostly followed the (rather shocking) recommended steeping parameters for this tea. I did shorten the time a little bit just because (1) I can’t imagine more time making a difference and (2) I didn’t want to wait that long. I did overleaf this a bit just because there were quite a few large chunky bits of apple in the pouch.

So… I don’t think I would call this pumpkin or tart, really. I do get the pumpkin pie spices, especially the clove (unsurprising, since there were whole cloves in the tea). But I don’t get pumpkin, which honestly makes sense given there is no flavoring here, and no dried pumpkin. I do get a light and pleasant apple flavor, which goes well with the spices. Thankfully, I do not taste any coconut.

I’m not sure how I feel about the added sweetness from the maple sugar (or whatever it is). It’s not overwhelmingly sweet or cloying, but I never add sweetener to my teas so it’s still quite a bit sweeter than my teas would normally be. I will say, I do appreciate that it’s restrained, as I still find it very pleasant and drinkable even with the included sugar.

So, tl;dr? It’s perfectly pleasant to sip on, but it’s not special to me. The flavor overall is quite light, and mostly it’s the pumpkin pie spices that take center stage. Will happily sip down the rest of the sample, but certainly not a reorder for me.

Autumn leaf pile makes me laugh every time I see it.

Really I just wanted “leaf”, but that’s the only option! :P


I’m really considering getting the subscription box, but I haven’t tried her teas before, so I’m eagerly reading all the tasting notes people post to help me make my decision!

Cameron B.

I saw that but am not really interested in the extra stuff so it wouldn’t be very cost-effective for me. :P


I’m not interested in the other things either, so I should probably just make a regular order instead!

Silent Kettle

Yes! I continue supporting Deb because she is an AMAZING person. Her teas come packaged beautifully!
Also, I loved your review. :) I cannot wait to see what you think of the rest of her teas.

Silent Kettle

@AJRimmer, if you’re not interested in the extra items, then it might be more cost effective to just get a large order and try the 25 gram samples to see what you like. :)


Yeah, I think that’s what I’ll do! I always make too many Black Friday tea orders, so I figured I should probably wait and see how overwhelmed with tea I am before ordering :P

Silent Kettle

Haha! That makes sense! If you are ordering, I would highly recommend fireside s’mores and raisan bread pudding from Deb. Those are some of my favourite tea blends :)

I was quite excited to try this one, but it didn’t quite deliver as I was hoping. I’m mostly getting saigon cinnamon, with a touch of clove and apple….and coconut, lots of coconut. Not really getting pumpkin, but more of a cinnamon coconut dessert. Still tasty, but not really what I expected.

Silent Kettle

I actually really enjoyed this one! When I tried it, it tasted like a mild green tea with pumpkin spice, and at the back end, there was a coconut note. But I agree, sometimes with some of these blends the coconut can be a bit overwhelming.

Just finished my full length blog review of this tea (scheduled to go live late next week), and figured I’d reiterate my thoughts here.

Pumpkin Pie Tart has a very warm, inviting scent to it. Though once steeped, the flavour doesn’t exactly translate the way I would have hoped. It has a light to medium body and tastes a lot like sweet, spiced apple, at least for a majority of the sip. It finishes with a pleasant creaminess and more of the pumpkin spice. Because it doesn’t totally scream pumpkin pie in my mind, I likely won’t be re-purchasing it, but it’s enjoyable enough that I’ll have no issues finishing off what I have left of it!

When you said Blog, I had to click your profile, and realized you run steep sip and repeat! I absolutely love your blog!! :) Excited to see the rest of your reviews on Dessert by Deb this week!


Thank you so much for the support and kind words! :)

Silent Kettle

Omg, of course! You’re the best!! :) Your tea blogs helped me decide what teas to try from local Canadian shops.


That’s great to hear, thank you!

I loved this one! Sometimes when there’s apple in teas, the tea has no apple flavour, and the apple is just there to add sweetness. And I understand why, since it can be hard for the hot water to absorb the apple flavour, and the apple then just acts as a sweetener.

I have only had this tea hot! But with this tea, you can really taste the apple. The spices remind me of a pumpkin pie latte, which I love! This is such a wonderful blend for the Fall!

I think this tastes more like an apple, pumpkin-spiced pie! But I really enjoyed it (even if it does not taste like a pumpkin! Maybe dried pumpkin is very expensive? Since I have never seen it used liberally in teas anyway).

I think I will repurchase this one.

Flavors: Apple, Natural Pumpkin Spice Flavor

I have my cart all ready and full of Deb’s samples. I’ve seen this brand mentioned a lot around here lately and your barrage pushed me over the edge! ;)

Silent Kettle

Yay! Deb honestly goes above and beyond with her packaging! Mine arrived a few days ago with stickers all over it, custom Dessert by Deb wrapping paper, and a beautiful handwritten note (which she designs by herself). I really hope you like your teas! Can’t wait to read your reviews on them!!

Cameron B.

Did you subscribe to the newsletter to get the free shipping code? I signed up but still haven’t gotten an email…

Silent Kettle

Hi! The same thing happened to me. Just send Deb and e-mail and she’ll fix that for you :) ! I think she is also offering a special right now if you buy above a certain amount, she will include extra samples and some other treats :)

Cameron B.

Okay thanks, just wanted to make sure it wasn’t just me. I’ll send her an email.

Silent Kettle

Awesome! I hope you enjoy your new teas! :)

I’m always skeptical of “pumpkin pie” teas (and in fact pumpkin teas in general) but I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this tea! The thing I hate the most about “pumpkin teas” is when they just taste like pumpkin spice and not AT ALL like pumpkin; but this one is very satisfying because while it does have some spice notes, like clove, it also REALLY distinctly still tastes like sweet and creamy pumpkin pie filling! I’m definitely going to run out of this one before Spooky Season is over!

Got tea mail today from VariaTEA with a bunch of Dessert by Deb samples to try! Thankyouthankyouthankyou!!!

Being October and a huge pumpkin lover (with an IG account dedicated to all the pumpkin stuff I find and yes, I have one just for tea as well) I had to start with Pumpkin Pie Tart. It smells so much like pumpkin pie! I’ve never had a green tea based pumpkin tea, but this tea makes me think that is the way to go. I can smell crust under the appropriately spiced pumpkin. The sip is mostly spice, but the end of the sip and finish are full pumpkin pie trailing into a buttery flavor. It’s light, yet flavorful at the same time. I was a little surprised by the steeping parameters being hotter and longer than I usually see with green, but they didn’t steer me wrong. This is going to have to go on my shopping list because I want more cups of this!

This one sounds great! What would you say your favorite pumpkin teas are? I’m always looking out for good ones!


I am always surprised by her steeping parameters too.


I am super critical of pumpkin teas because so many of them are just a mix of the pie spices associated with pumpkin, like they hope the spice will convey the idea of pumpkin… which is totally cheating in my book! A lot of them seem to be out of balance with too much clove that bites or fall flat in some other way. My top favorite is an herbal, Bird and Blend’s Baby Spice. This is probably my second favorite.
I wonder how she comes up with the steeping parameters. Does she have a line up of mugs at different temps, steeping them at different times to figure it all out?


That totally fits with what I’ve found! And I just finished my bag of Baby Spice yesterday, and I enjoyed that one a lot too!
