Tea of the Week for October 15, 2018!

What is a Pumpkin Pasty? When I looked it up, I found out that they’re supposed to be similar to a Cornish Pasty, but filled with pumpkin instead of meat and vegetables. Personally, I’ve never heard of a Cornish Pasty, and the only time I’ve heard of Pumpkin Pasty is when it was mentioned in Harry Potter. Hey, the only time I’ve been outside of the United States is that time I visited Tijuana, and what happened there . . . stays there.

So the best I’ve been able to guess – a pumpkin pasty is something like a pumpkin pie – only, like a handheld pie, where the pumpkin filling is encased in pastry. That suggests to me that I needed to amp up the pastry notes just a bit on this because it’s supposed to have more pastry than the average pumpkin pie. I also chose a base that might help in that department – the naturally nutty notes of the honeybush and rooibos play well to the added pastry essence.

And of course, there is to be pumpkin! A sweet, smooth pumpkin-y note, brought on by chunks of dried organic pumpkin. And spice – because every pumpkin deserves a touch of spice! I didn’t go very heavy on the spice, because I wanted the pastry and pumpkin to shine through – but I did add some ginger, cinnamon and cloves to give this a warm flavor.

So, even though I’ve never actually tasted a Pumpkin Pasty, this tea tastes to me a lot like what I’d expect from such a thing. I think that nice lady from the trolley on the Hogwarts Express would approve!

And it is – of course – VEGAN, gluten free, allergen free, caffeine free and all organic!
