Pumpkin Teas!

Do you feel that slight chill in the air? See any leaves changing color? See things on sale for Christmas ALREADY?

Well, for us, that can only mean one thing. It’s pumpkin season!

We love a good pumpkin pie (or even better, some decadent Pumpkin Spice Scones), and my mom’s pumpkin ‘bread’ (really more of a cake) is still a family favorite. But each year, when the weather starts to change, what I reach for is pumpkin tea!

Pumpkin teas are often warming and spiced, without the full-on flavor of a chai. They are great brewed on their own, better with a little milk and honey, and BEST as a tea latte.

Our favorite pumpkin teas are, as you might guess, the ones we decided to offer to our customers. Here are the three best pumpkin teas we’ve tasted…

(BTW, keep reading until the end for five weird facts about pumpkins!)

Yep, that’s a Pumpkin Rooibos you’re looking at. It’s a real beauty, if we do say so ourselves. (But, hey, you don’t have to take our word for it! Just read some of the reviewers who gave it its five-star rating.)
And here’s our Pumpkin Spice Tea. It’s a black tea, and much more like a chai than the other blends. We like it in the morning or mid-afternoon (especially with a little of that pumpkin bread that I mentioned before…).
We may have just saved the best for last. It’s certainly the most unusual, and it’s VERY popular. (It also has a five-star rating.) It’s our Roasted Pumpkin Yerba Mate. Roasted yerba mate gives it a rich flavor and a bold caffeine kick. It’s a fantastic tea for people who want to make the switch from coffee, or for anyone who loves yerba mate for its strong-but-mellow energy boost.

OK, as promised here are five weird facts about pumpkins. Enjoy!

5. ¬†Pumpkins contain, on average, 500 seeds each. That’s a lot of seeds for one fruit!

4. The word ‘pumpkin’ first appeared in the fairy tale Cinderella. Prior to that, it was called gros melon or pepon¬†in the West.

3. The world’s largest pumpkin was grown in Minnesota in 2010. It was over five feet in diameter and weighed a whopping 1800 pounds!

2. There are over 45 different kinds of pumpkin in the world, and the kind for jack-o’-lanterns is totally different from the kind for pie.

1. Much like brewed tea, pumpkins are over 90 percent water! And also like tea, they pack a lot of flavor without a big impact on your waistline. Three cheers for pumpkins!
