What's your review on the pumpkin cheesecake? It looks so interesting! Is it one you need to add milk to?

I bought the apple cider and really like it!!!

I didn't enjoy pumpkin cheessecake, it wasn't bad just flavorless especially compared to the other blacknpumpkin tea (can't recall the name right now). I do love apple cider though! Yum!

I cannot wait for Nov 1st to get some alpine punch, I'm starting to have the shakes from withdrawal lol

sorry - just saw this now. I really like the pumpkin cheesecake. i add milk to almost all my teas (except herbal) so I do for this one, and I've done it half water/half hot milk and it's really good. I don't usually like rooibos teas, but this one doesn't have that strong rooibos taste. Pumpkin chai is still my favourite, but I like this as a decaf option for the evening. The pumpkin spice one was ok, but since it's a black tea like the chai, I wouldn't buy again.

Ordered one for me, one for Marg and one for Scrummie in case she wants one. I figure that with back to work looming post-baby, I will need all the caffeine that I can get. :)

Got one here in Barrie. Just in time to take it home on Monday. I didn't want to risk waiting until I got home and missing out!

I bought mine this morning. I got to the store at about 9:45 (they opened at 9:30) and they had already sold half of their stock. They had a line-up before they opened.

Now the hard part... waiting until December!

If scrummy doesn't want the one you have for her - I'll take it!

Or - does anyone in Ottawa have an extra? Does anyone know if any stores have any left?

I was doing that marathon thing yesterday and totally missed out on this..... :( :(

And they are sold out online now. I managed to snag one online for a friend when she saw mine (Barrie was sold out when we went back) but when I checked the site this morning they were all gone.

I heard 4pm EST or so is when they were sold out online.

Last year, I grabbed one in store a few days later - apparently people buy a bunch, then, sometimes return if they don't find people to buy them from them.... :P
