This week’s tea of the week tastes like rich pumpkin pie with a crust made entirely of sweet, delicious toffee. I don’t know if anyone could really make a pie like that, but I would love to try one. In the meantime, I’m going to continue enjoying rich sips of this yummy tea. The Dragonwell green tea adds just the right notes of sweet nuttiness to compliment the toffee and contrast with the pumpkin. All in all, this is a really special treat you’ll love serving to your guests, if you’re generous enough to share.

In honor of our LiberTEAs taking over 52Teas soon (can not wait!), I decided to crack this tea open and see what I thought.
After checking out the reviews on Steepster for this blend, I decided I needed to try this one both hot and cold brewed. I will be honest, brewed up hot, I really did not care for this one. I can’t really say what the tea tasted like but it was unpleasant. A real muddled tasting green tea is the best I can come up with. I ended up dumping the cuppa.
Switched to cold brewed. I dumped some tea leaves into my pitcher last night and this morning I was greeted with a delicious pumpkin toffee tea. Wowzer! I am impressed. Especially after the hot brewed method was such a failed (I’m going with that was user error somehow). I can taste the pumpkin, the toffee, and the Dragonwell base and the flavor is incredible. Creamy, smooth, hints of spice, and this richness that allows this ice tea to become this ridiculously amazing iced tea treat. I am in love! I do really like 52Teas tea bases and I am sure that Liberteas will follow suit. Frank at 52Teas has listed his last teas that he will create for 52Teas (including a Raspberry Birthday Cake Blend!!). From what his blog says, Zoomdweebie will be going dark by the end of the month. Check out the remaining blends and pick them up while you still can. You won’t regret it!
Unfortunately, this particular beauty of a tea is no longer available to purchase. I wish it was. I would pick up a ton of it. I can see this tea becoming a staple in my cupboard.
