Did you leave room for pumpkin pie? If you’ve stuffed yourself at the holiday feast and you don’t feel like you’ve room for one more bite, perhaps you’ll have enough room for a sip or two of pumpkin pie rooibos!
The fragrance of this tisane is strong – very pumpkin-y! As my tea cup sits in front of me, the scent of fresh pumpkin pie perfumes the air and brings a smile to my face!
The flavor is also very pumpkin-y. I don’t know that I’m tasting a lot of “pie” or pastry flavor, perhaps a hint of buttery taste and the natural nutty flavor of the rooibos also lends a bit of the pastry taste to the cup. But, what it lacks in “pie” it definitely makes up for in pumpkin. And let’s face it, when we eat pumpkin pie, we want the pumpkin, am I right? I remember when I was young, I used to eat the pumpkin and leave the pie crust on my plate.
The pumpkin has a pleasant squash taste that’s been seasoned with cinnamon. It is not an overly seasoned pumpkin, but it has just enough spice in there to make it interesting without detracting from the taste of the pumpkin.
What I really like about this particular tisane is that the pumpkin is so prominent and it is a true pumpkin flavor. So often with pumpkin flavored teas, I taste the tea, but, I don’t get a very authentic pumpkin flavor. You won’t hear that complaint from me with this tisane; it’s delicious!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
