A re-review of this tea.

Now with it being October I’m trying all the herbal/rooibos pumpkin blends I can find. Unless I find one at a tea shop I’m going to in Minneapolis this weekend for my anniversary , this rooibos blend is my last one I’m trying.

I tried it 2 ways:

Way 1 (plain cup): 1.5-2tsp of leaf, steeped 8min in 8oz of 190F water: Def tasting cinnamon and cloves followed still by rooibos and a bit of apple. The spices seemed weak to me, but I’ve realized iHOT airs on the side of caution with their spices. See my tasting note for rooibos chai: this pumpkin blend has more spice than it! Overall this cup was okay if weak.

Way 2 (latte): 4 “perfect spoonfuls” (10tsp), steeped 5ish min in 8oz of 190F water, mixed with hot, frothed 1% milk (approx 6oz): Wow, ok, THERE’S the cinnamon and cloves! The latte is much more powerful and this is where the tea shines. I would even reduce my leaf by 1 perfect spoonful (or sub in something else) because the spices were almost a bit strong for me. Overall a good latte!

However, if I had to say what my favourite pumpkin tea is I would say Spiced Pumpkin by DAVIDs TEA: reason being, they had actual pumpkin in that blend. This tea from iHOT is an easy #2, and pumpkin cheesecake (DAVIDs) and pumpkin pie (Steeped Tea) were crap. I kind of consider this tea to be the better chai rooibos blend as opposed to a pumpkin tea. Definitely a repurchase.
