Picture of Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin Spice from Harney and Sons

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

77 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 1st, 2014

This is pretty good. I can't even tell that it's rooibos-based. I don't usually like rooibos, but this tastes more like pumpkin muffins or something. If I could choose, I'd have it with a bit less cinnamon, but it's good as-is. I added cream and sugar.

Apr. 25th, 2014

This tea has a kind of interesting flavor/aroma, but it's so weak I can barely taste it, after brewing it for 5 minutes. It's very thin and watery. I tend to like stronger teas. I added cream and sugar.

Apr. 12th, 2014

I like chai teas, but this is the first chocolate chai that I've tried. The aroma is mostly overpowered with cinnamon. Alex advised me to take out the chocolate chunks because he thought they would ruin the tea brewer, so I did, but I wasn't sure whether I was supposed to. Anyway, I didn't taste the chocolate flavor mu...

Dec. 15th, 2013

This tea brews really quickly. The first time I tried it I brewed it too long - 4-5 minutes. I tried 3 minutes and it turned out well. I like it. It's interesting. Kind of fruity, but not too much. It has a rich, crisp flavor. It's a little more bitter than I would ideally like. I added cream and sugar.

This tea is pretty good, but it has a dominant spice flavor that I can't tell what it is, and it's a little weird. It tastes a bit tangy. I added cream and sugar.

This tea is good. It's similar to other brands of raspberry leaf tea. I'm developing a taste for this kind of tea. It's a nice evening alternative to regular tea. I added cream and sugar.

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 27th, 2013

I tried this because I usually like chai and nut flavored teas. This tea has too much cinnamon for my taste, and it seems to overwhelm the other flavors. I like the almond. The base tea isn't very strong. I added cream and sugar.

I'm impressed with this tea. It has a rich flavor. I can really taste the chocolate, and it has a strong black tea that I really like, and it really supports the flavor well. It's a nice blend of flavors. I added cream and sugar.

Apr. 11th, 2013

This tea has a heavily citrus aroma. The tea doesn't taste very good to me, but I don't know what Lady Grey is supposed to taste like. It tastes very citrus and has a weak tea flavor. I like it enough to finish the cup, though. I added cream and sugar.

I like this tea. It has a good amount of flavor and it blends well with the tea. The aroma is really nice. It tastes a little bit weak, though. I had to steep it for 6 1/2 minutes to get it strong enough. I added cream and sugar.

This tea has a pretty strong bergamot aroma, but I like it. I like the flavor a lot. It's strong and it had a good amount of bergamot. It tastes a little watery, though. I added cream and sugar.

This tea has a notable aroma and flavor of rum. It tastes weak to me no matter how I brew it, just like most of the teas from this brand that I've tried. It tastes a little too bitter if I brew it for a long time. I usually like vanilla teas but this one is a little weird. It has a slight bitter aftertaste. I added cre...

When I first tried this tea I loved it, but after I've been drinking it for a while, I now think it has a really weak base tea. I still like the flavoring. It has a nice sweet, creamy flavor. I love nut-flavored teas. I think it has a similar appeal to a caramel latte. I added cream and sugar.

This chai has a weak tea flavor, even after brewing it for a long time. The dominant flavor is of ginger, and it's a little too much for me. Overall, it's okay. I added cream and sugar.

I think this tea is too heavily spiced, and doesn't have a strong enough tea flavor in comparison. Also, there's something off about the blend of spices, but I don't know what it is. Maybe it's the red pepper. I added cream and sugar.
