#FanaticFriday: Pumpkin Spice Latte Genmaicha from 52Teas


I’m a huge fan of 52Teas. Always have been. So I thought I would take over SororiTea Sisters today and chat about a few new offerings from 52Teas!

The weather is turning colder and with that comes all things pumpkin. Yes, I am one of those pumpkin addicts that go crazy. Now I don’t go nuts and buy pumpkin flavored cookies and pumpkin flavored candy, but I do flip out over pumpkin coffee (when I drank coffee), pumpkin in different dishes, and pumpkin in tea. So when I opened up my first monthly subscription from 52Teas and saw this tea in the lot, I may have gotten a tad giddy.

Brewed up per the packages instructions, this tea had an amazingly rich cinnamon roasted note. I allowed the tea to cool for a moment and took a sip. I was instantly greeted with those same deeply rich cinnamon notes with a roasted overtone. You could tell this was a genmaicha blend but the cinnamon notes really took the tea to a different level. Delicious!

But this tea is Pumpkin Spice Latte Genmaicha and I have to say with the first infusion, I didn’t really pick up any pumpkin.  So I brewed up more water and brewed up a second infusion, hoping to pull out the pumpkin flavor.  This go around I allowed the tea to cool longer. Took another sip and this time the pumpkin flavor was a bit stronger but not a ton. Even with that said, this tea was delicious! The pumpkin added a sweet note with the same lush cinnamon roasted tone.

With a tea like this one, you would think the pumpkin flavor would smack you in the face, but this one doesn’t.  To me, this was a more gentle pumpkin flavored tea that still delivers that fall like experience with every sip. I am still crazy about this tea and can’t wait to try my remaining taster as a cold brew.

All I really have left to say about this tea is this is a tea that is perfect to welcome in the fall!  Can’t wait to see what teas are in my October box!

Here’s the scoop!

Where to Buy: 52Teas


This time of year, it seems impossible to avoid the Pumpkin Spice trappings – there are pumpkin spice goodies every where you turn! Well, rather than fight ’em, I decided to join ’em and create a Pumpkin Spice treat of my own! And why not? I love the flavor! The pumpkin is sweet yet savory and the spices add a lovely, deep warmth to the pumpkin notes.

I started with organic Matcha infused Genmaicha and added chunks of real, dehydrated pumpkin, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla bean and marshmallow root to create a tea that’ll make you happy this time of year has finally arrived! This tea is terrific served straight up, but a drizzle of honey in this is oh-so-nice!

Taster size is approximately 15g

ingredients: green teas*, popped brown rice*, dried pumpkin chunks, marshmallow root*, crushed and whole allspice*, cinnamon*, nutmeg*, vanilla bean* and natural flavors*

Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.

Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
