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 Overall: 8/10
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. 27th, 2014

This tea is kind of weird. I don't know what to think of it. It smells kind of like a meaty soup, with a smoky aroma. I don't even know how to describe the flavor. It doesn't really taste like what I think of as white tea. It has sort of a muddled, soggy, and rich quality, like soup. 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...

I don't like the aroma much - to me, it smells like raisins and cereal. It tastes good, but more fruity than I would like. It has a raisin-like flavor, too. I added cream and sugar.

Feb. 4th, 2014

I like this tea - it's very strong and dark. I have a be careful when brewing it because there's a short window of time that it comes out good - for me about 3 minutes. After that it starts to get very bitter and astringent. I'm starting to notice that in general, it's hard to find decaf black teas that have a lot of f...

This tea brews very quickly, which is convenient. It has an interesting aroma. It smells kind of like cereal. It's very strong, and a little more bitter than I would ideally like, but overall, I like it. It tastes rich and crisp, and a little bit tangy. I added cream and sugar.

I like this tea. It has a nice blend of spices. The aroma is characterized by clove. I added cream and sugar. I notice that it's even better with vanilla added.

Dec. 24th, 2013

This tea has a sweet aroma. I thought it was kind of mild and watery at first (after brewing it for 8 minutes) but as I get further down in the cup, it seems to taste fuller. It has a kind of sharp, sweet flavor. It's surprisingly astringent for a Darjeeling tea. It leaves my mouth feeling kind of fuzzy. I added cream ...

I was surprised when I tasted this tea. I don't like the aroma much - it smells like raisin toast, and I don't like the raisin aroma. But the taste is really different. It has a toasty flavor that I like. It's a little odd. I added cream and sugar.

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.

Nov. 30th, 2013

This is the first time I've tried plain (unflavored) guayusa. I'm used to drinking black teas and other similar things, so that's what I'm comparing it to. It smells kind of like the woods on a wet day. The flavor is weird - it tastes okay but it has a hint of rotting plant flavor, and that turns me off to it. I added ...

This tea has a cinnamon flavor that's kind of overpowering. I can still taste the other flavors, and it tastes okay. Maybe a cinnamon enthusiast would like it better. I added cream and sugar.

Oct. 26th, 2013

This tea is interesting. I noticed that it had rooibos in it, and I thought it might be weird because I don't like rooibos very much, but it's actually pretty good. It has a smooth flavor. The spices are not overpowering, which is refreshing. I added cream and sugar.

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 really like this tea. It has a nice smoky aroma. The flavor is strong and rich and not too bitter, but it's still crisp. One of the best black teas I've had. I added cream and sugar.
