Pumpkin Teas

Once upon a time I drank a lot of coffee.  My morning wasn’t complete with some cup o’ joe, and when the holidays rolled around you better believe I was always getting my pumpkin spice/gingerbread latte fix.  And then I got an ulcer and my doctor told me I shouldn’t drink coffee anymore except decaf on occasion.  So I turned to tea and haven’t looked back since.  Now my mornings always start with a strong black tea or an iced tea if it’s hot out.

Since the pumpkin season is in full swing, I took it upon myself to try a variety of different pumpkin teas to see which one would come out on top.

Best Roobios Tea: Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Rooibos Tea

tale of pumpkin tea trader joesI normally don’t like roobios teas but Trader Joe’s is top notch.  The pumpkin flavor really shines through and it’s a decaf tea, which is perfect for enjoying in the evening before bed.

Best Black Tea: Celestial Seasoning’s Sweet Harvest Pumpkin Tea

Best Chai Tea: Art of Tea’s Pumpkin Spice Chai

Tale of pumpkin tea art of teaI was on a chai tea latte kick for awhile and then I found them to be too sweet and loaded with lots of sugar.  Art of Tea’s Pumpkin Spice Chai is a loose leaf tea with the perfect amount of chai spice.  I like to make my own chai lattes by adding a bit of almond milk.

Best Overall Pumpkin Tea: Art of Tea’s Pumpkin Pie Tea

Art of Tea takes the cake with this pumpkin pie tea.  It’s got the perfect amount of pumpkin flavor and a hint of sweetness.  Plus, it’s decaf so you can drink it any time of day.

And just for fun, a little behind the scenes look from the pumpkin tea shoot.  Obviously, Pip is a fan of pumpkin tea as well.
