I tend to be a little skeptical when it comes to pumpkin flavored teas, because some that I’ve tried have not really tasted very much like pumpkin. They usually end up tasting like pumpkin pie spice and not the squash itself.
But this Pumpkin Creme Brulee from Butiki Teas has pumpkin flavor … and not an artificial, chemical-y tasting pumpkin. This has a pleasantly sweet, mild squash flavor that melds deliciously with the gentle spiced notes of cinnamon and nutmeg.
And then there is the creme brulee taste! Creme brulee is without a doubt my favorite dessert. And this has that creamy, decadent flavor of the baked custard, making this a sweet, irresistibly good tea.
However, it wouldn’t BE a tea without the tea base, and Butiki Teas uses a high-quality Ceylon tea which offers a mellow background note. It is rich and pleasant, with a hint of earthiness that marries with the spices to give a slightly nutty fullness that supports the pumpkin notes well.
The flavors of this tea work together perfectly. This would be a lovely tea to serve around the fall and winter holidays to guests as it does have that autumnal feel to it. However, this IS spring, but at the time of writing this review, we are still experiencing a chilly spring … and this makes for a lovely afternoon treat – delicious and warming enough to forget that cold that lurks outside!
