From DAVIDsTEA

The minute sweater weather hits, we know it’s time to turn our attention to all things pumpkin. Get ready for the classiest cup of pumpkin to every grace your mug: Pumpkin Chai meets Cream of Earl Grey. A remarkably warming & creamy vanilla base with a pinch of pumpkin spices & bergamot for that London Fog richness. It’s our new fall fave, and we think you’ll love it too.

What makes it great

Features all the classic pumpkin spices like cinnamon, cloves & cardamom.

When Pumpkin Chai & Cream of Earl Grey come together, the result is drool-worthy fall goodness.

Pumpkin (the end).

Got this in the subscription box. I was hoping that the fall box would have some pumpkin tea in it, so I was excited to see this. I drank it down pretty quickly and this is my last cup. Although I enjoy it I’m not quite sure how I feel about this. Would I buy it again? I don’t know. There is a nice pumpkin flavor and it’s interesting to taste it paired with bergamot instead of just pumpkin spice. Is it this particular bergamot that I’m not sold on? I almost want to buy another bag to have more time to sort out how I feel about it. There is a little clove tang on the finish that is a little tingly, which I don’t recall in other cups. Perhaps it’s a result of dumping the last of the bag in the steeper. Super glad this one isn’t packed with stevia like many other David’s teas. Also really happy to have a new pumpkin tea to try this year!

I used a reward to order this one with my advent calendar, I’m excited for it! :3

Yeah, this stevia situation in DTs is always a worry. My interest in this one is piqued. Maybe even enough to venture out and get a wee bit.

Dustin

It’s worth a go IMO. :)

Evol Ving Ness

Thanks, Dustin. The thing is that COVId has shut down all their stores that were in my direct path. So, we’ll see if I can hunt up another one placed more or less in my travels.

Dustin

They shut down all their US stores, which is really sad. I think they shut the last few down right after the pandemic started, but some disappeared before. Probably a smart business move, not paying rent for a year and a half on pricey well placed stores that would be closed.

Evol Ving Ness

We have only one left, in a shopping mall which I do my best to avoid. I wonder if they will open up a few more if/when normality resumes. Agreed about the smart business move. All of their shops were street level in neighbourhood with a lot of street traffic. Of course, during the lockdown, there was no street traffic. I guess we’ll see.

This is absolutely delicious! Such a wonderful pumpkin flavor, with a nice creaminess and delicious blend of spices. Really heavy on the nutmeg, so it smells a lot like eggnog to my nose. The bergamot is pretty mild, with it being more in the aftertaste than anything.

Wasn’t bad but not much flavor for the smell. Not really into pumpkin so wasn’t for me. Although turns out i like Earl Greys and that surprised me

So, I still don’t know what I think of this tea. I really want to love it, but I can’t quite figure out whether I do – but I still need to try it as a latte. Straight, it doesn’t quite taste like EG to me, though I can definitely taste the pumpkin. However, it doesn’t really have any defining flavour, which perhaps is why I’m struggling a bit with it?

Oh boy, I don’t know when the last time I felt nervous to start a tasting note was…

This is one of the new teas that’s included in the Autumn Subscription box, but more than that it’s a tea that has a really special significance to me. As so many people here know, I work in R&D for DAVIDsTEA – this is far from the first tea that I’ve been involved in the development process for. However, it is the first tea to launch that was both my idea as well as something that I worked on all the way from concept to finalized blend. There’ll be more to come in the future, but because this is the first means that it’s always going to have a deep emotional significance to me – probably in the same way that DT blends like Birthday Cake do (if not even more so). So, it is with that disclaimer and background that I am going to begin to tell you about Pumpkin Earl Grey…

If you’ve been following along with me on Steepster for a while, then you probably know that I have been adding pumpkin agave to straight black teas and Earl Greys for years now. I can’t remember exactly what year DT released their pumpkin agave (it was when I was working in stores so 2016 or 2017?) but it’s my favourite flavour that DT has ever put out & I just think there’s something magical about it when paired with Earl Grey. I love making what I call “Pumpkin Fogs” using it – but my last bottle is very nearly out and I know that at some point I’m going to be out…

What you might not know is that the first time I ever saw the Pumpkin Agave & Earl Grey combination was from a customer who used to add it to her London Fogs – and she introduced me to this awesome fall combo that I’ve been in love with since. So, this tea is my love letter to that customer and the brilliance of the “Pumpkin Fog”.

Finding the right balance of spices to pair with the bergamot was a bit of a thought puzzle – bergamot is a strong and aromatic flavour/scent and spices can quickly become overwhelming as well. What we ended up with was a medium(ish) intensity combination of cinnamon, clove, and cardamom. I personally feel like the cardamom is the real star here, and I think it does a lot of the heavy lifting of marrying the spices with the bergamot. Cardamom is also super aromatic and it has this citrus-y notes that work really well the pumpkin. Most squash actually is just a little bit citrusy as well, so it’s a good flavour tether. Aside from that, there’s the familiar thick cream/vanilla note that fans of Cream of Earl Grey will recognize but also a tiny bit of a buttery pastry note that I find softens the cup and adds a decadent richness.

This idea was birthed from a latte style beverage prep, so it should probably go without saying that I think this is really brilliant when you make it as a latte. However, I’m also just so in love with it as a straight hot cuppa. I don’t really drink a lot of Cream of Earl Grey or Pumpkin Chai, but this combo just works on a level that seems crazy on paper. I’m excited for people to try it, and honestly just really proud to have a blend out in the world. As both a tea lover and “creative”, that’s a pretty cool bucket list life moment.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

It’s cool to see you put so much of yourself into your work and that your materialized idea has landed a spot in the catalog. Way to go :)

Kittenna

Love this so much! And now I obviously need to try it as a latte… AND pay attention when I do so.

AJRimmer

I love the sound of this one – what a cool idea! I’ll have to order some too!

Lexie Aleah

This sounds delicious and hopefully, I’ll be able to grab some of it if it’s not only a subscription box tea.

tea-sipper

Congrats! I’ll be honest and say I never thought of pumpkin and bergamot together though…
