Bulk Herb Store: 5 Holiday Tea Collections to Give Away!

Bulk Herb Store: 5 Holiday Tea Collections to Give Away!

Creamy Pumpkin Pie Product Page

I like me a good cup of tea. Many of the people who visit my home comment on my “tea basket”, usually overflowing with various kinds of tea– loose, bags, black, herbal, rooibos, green, medicinal, dessert-like, etc.

I think that part of what I like about tea is its complex and every-changing personality. It can be subtle and calming, strong and healing, sweet and spicy, or smooth and invigorating. The combinations of herbs and types of tea that can be used are practically endless.

Many of you know that I’ve become much more interested in herbs this past year, and I’ve been doing my best to share that knowledge with you (I know, this seems off-topic, but stay with me). One of the places I have been gleaning a lot is through the wonderful videos that the Bulk Herb Store has been releasing this summer and fall.

Most of them are very informational, teaching about various herbs, how to make tinctures, poultices, medicinal teas, nutritious smoothies and more. One caught my attention in particular, though:

I have never seen anyone so passionate about her strong, sweet and spicy chai tea. And I totally get it, because I feel the same way. Don’t give me some wussy, watery chai. Bleh. I want the real thing, as strong as strong can be.

If she feels this way about her chai tea blend, I hoped that this true tea lover would put the same love and care into all of her tea blends. Lucky for me (disclosure: I probably squealed), Bulk Herb Store asked me to try some of them out and let you know what I thought!

It’s a real hard life, sitting around sipping on tea all day long so that I can tell you about it. I put in the time and effort, though, because that’s just the kind of person I am.

I tried 3 of the 4 teas in their Holiday Tea Collection and here’s what I thought:

1. Creamy Pumpkin Pie. Decadent. This has been one of my very favorite treats this past few weeks. I’m already halfway through my bag and I intend to buy more. I’ve shared it with friends and family. I can’t get enough of this stuff. Way too good with real cream and a bit of sugar or honey.

2. Frosty Kandy Kane. I didn’t fall as in love with this one (although they tell me that’s it is very popular this year). It’s not that it didn’t taste good, because it did. This tea is best enjoyed cold, and while I like a good, iced tea in the summer, I am a wrap-my-hands-around-a-steaming-mug kind of gal in the winter. I did, however, try this one warm and personally liked it better than way.

3. Christmas Tea. This is a beautiful ruby red tea, with lots of hibiscus, orange peel, rose hips and then some other holiday spices and herbs like cinnamon, cloves and peppermint, in a black tea base. The taste is just a bit fruity, with mild spice flavors, and it smells like, well, Christmas. I enjoy this one when I’m in the mood for something lighter and more refreshing.

  2. I am anxious to try the Pumpkin Pie tea as well as the Christmas Tea. Both of my dd’s are enjoying a morning cup of tea with me before they start their school lessons, so this giveaway would add to our daily ritual.

  3. Creamy pumpkin pie sounds really good to me! I too in the winter like to hold on to a warm mug. The Christmas one sounds yummy to simmer in a small pot on the stove to fill up the house with the smells of Christmas! Thank you for sharing.

  4. While the ones you mentioned sound good, I think the Sparkling Festivi-Tea would probably be my favorite. I love chamomile and lemon.

  5. I would love to try the pumpkin tea, because I cannot picture in my head what it will taste like LOL.

  6. We are huge tea drinkers around here. Actually my 15 yr old asked for tea and his own tea pot for Christmas this year (yes we are a practical family). He would love to wake up to these in his stocking. I am thinking the pumpkin would be my favorite, but the peppermint would be his. My husband loves any tea.

  7. I just signed up for the youtube videos. Thank you, now I will make a cup of tea and settle in to watch.

  8. What a hard choice but I think that I would like to try the Christmas one first, just because it’s Christmas πŸ™‚ They all sound good to me!

  9. Joined bulk herb’s facebook page. I love them and am excited to see all the videos. About a year ago, I had watched a few but didn’t realize there were so many. Thanks!

  10. I think I would like the Christmas tea best, simply because I like “fruity” teas the best. The reviews sounded great!

  11. I love pumpkin tea and have never tried a loose leaf version– that sounds most appealing to me.

  12. Hi, I would love the Frosted Kandy Kane. I love all things candy cane flavored and spend a ton of money at our local tea shop so this would be a perfect contest for me to win!

  17. I love the sounds of Creamy Pumpkin Pie! Why? Because I love pumpkin and I love spice and I love the idea of this tea base. Roobios has many good qualities for health! Plus, I’d love to quit my coffee habit and pumpkin spice is one of my favorite coffee flavors. Maybe this would help me! πŸ™‚

  18. That is a hard choice, I am on a peppermint kick right now but the Christmas one sounds wonderful!!

  19. Creamy Pumpkin Pie sounds amazing. Festivi-Tea sounds delicious as well. I love sipping a hot tea by the fire.

  21. My daughter and I have recently been enjoying pumpkin spice chai, so the Creamy Pumpkin Pie sounds wonderful!

  23. Any of them sound yummy! My husband loves pumpkin pie, I love mint tea and the Christmas blend would be fun to try. Thanks for the reviews!

  24. I subscribe to Keeper of the Home via RSS, email and Facebook (dunno if I already posted this, but I can’t see it if I did? Sorry if I’m double posting!!)

  25. And I am already a subscriber to Keeper of the Home. Don’t know if that counts as an entry or not. πŸ™‚

  26. Creamy pumpkin pie – yum! I love a cup of coffee first thing in the morning, but I”ve been switching to tea the rest of the day – although not a fan of cold tea, I LOVE hot tea – especially loose leaf!

  27. The Christmas tea sounds wonderful, but the candy cane one is a close second. I love the combination she has used.

  28. I think my favorite would be the Christmas tea. I had something that sounds similar at a friends, and it was lovely!

  29. I would love the creamy pumpkin pie because pumpkin pie is my favorite dessert, and it sounds even better in a tea!

  30. I think they all sound good! Something for different moods. The festivi-tea sounds so good for a snowy evening…
    I’d love to try these as I am just venturing into teas after cutting coffee out (yea!!)

  31. I want to try the Christmas tea. It sounds so yummy. Or the pumpkin pie because I love pumpkin pie!

  32. I think the Christmas tea sounds great. I love tea with orange in it, the Christmas spices will only make it better!
    blessed.mama4 at yahoo.com

  33. I would love to try the sparkling festivi-tea! I usually like a stronger tea, but I’ve really missed the fresh lemon grass infusions we drank while living in Peru- this brings back memories!

  34. Oh wow! You totally sold me on the pumpkin pie one! Although Frosted Kandy Kane sounds delicious too.

  35. Only one? That’s. Hard to do! πŸ™‚ I love their Chai too!! It’s in mug right now!!! So yummy!
    Thanks for a fun giveaway!

  36. They all sound wonderful! I would especially like to try the Pumpkin Pie or the Kandy Kane. I love Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane, so I wonder if the BHS Kandy Kane is similar?? Hope to win these because they are out of stock!

  37. I think the creamy pumpkin sounds the best. Pumpkin flavored things are my absolute favorite, so a creamy, spiced pumpkin tea with real cream and a little sugar or honey (as you described) sounds delectable to me!!!

  38. This is a really hard choice! I would have to decide upon the Christmas blend! It sounds delicious!

  39. Is it odd, or is it God? Your post, once again, hit me right where I needed it – I’m trying to cut out all refined sugars from my diet – because my Christmas Cookie habit is utterly OUT OF CONTROL – and I’ve been relying on herb teas to get my through my cravings. These teas sound just wonderful!

  40. that creamy pumpkin pie for sure. it sounds so decadent and nothing says holidays like the spices of pumpkin pie.

  41. I subscribed to the Bulk Herb Store YouTube channel. Really neat, I watched 2 videos immediately and placed an order for the black chai tea blend and for one of the silk scarves (pretty and a good cause).

  42. I LOVE TEA! I am constantly trying new flavors. Of the three you described, I think I would like the Christmas Tea the best. The videos sound interesting. I’ll be checking those out. I already subscribe via email and I’ve Liked the Bulk Herb Store on Facebook.

  43. Oh, the creamy pumpkin pie sounds amazing. I LOVE teas and drink tea all day long. Thank you for the giveaway.

  44. Frosty candy cane sounds wonderful to me. I’m 8 moons pregnant and the sort of heavy/icky factor really affects my taste buds. I love cleansing, invigorating flavors that hold my attention.

  45. I’m also subscribed thru email, and Facebook… I don’t suppose we get an extra one for being a contributor… πŸ˜‰

  46. Creamy Pumpkin Pie tea!!! Are you kidding me??? I love, love, LOVE everything pumpkin. Like you I’m also a tea lover, and herbalist. Two of my most favorite things in the world combined. Your post nearly knocked me off my chair, why hadn’t I thought of that? I had to do a happy wiggle then promptly let you know. πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing this.

  47. Christmas Tea sounds lovely, but I don’t do much caffeine and I drink much of my tea at night. So because of that, I have to go with the Sparkling Festivi-Tea. The lemongrass and hibiscus would be great on top of the chamomile.

  48. They all sound good, but if I had to choose just one, it would be the Pumpkin Pie! Especially during the cold months, I love a nice creamy hot tea with a touch of sweetness.

  49. I think the Festivi-Tea sounds wonderful (I’m pregnant, so as good as the Pumpkin Pie Tea would be, I’m in the mood for delicious caffeine-free teas).

  50. I’m already subscribed to bulkherbstore’s youtube channel and their facebook. I’m now subscribed to keepers at home email.
    I like the Frosty Candy Cane.

  51. That Christmas tea sounds delish!! I love black tea and with all those spices, it just sounds yummy!!

  52. I think the Festivi-Tea sounds nice! I have 3 little people and sometimes need to unwind at the end of the day!

  53. Although they all sound wonderful, the Christmas Tea really caught my attention. Some of my favorite teas usually have hibiscus, orange peel, and other holiday type spices (cinnamon and clove).

  54. The Kandy kane one sounds the very best to me! I actually prefer cold or cooler tea all year round and love when I find a new one that tastes good that way!

  55. I’ve been wanting to expand my tea horizons. Both the Christmas tea and Pumpkin Pie sound scrumtious!

  56. I REALLY want to try the Creamy Pumpkin Pie. Pumpkin pie is my favorite kind of pie and I love a good cuppa, so I figure pumpkin pie in tea form must be delicious.

  57. Creamy Pumpkin Pie for sure! The spice blend must be amazing in a tea… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Thank you for doing this contest!

  58. Not a fan of mint, I would choose the pumpkin tea. Thanks to Keeper of the Home and Bulk herb store for blessing five families this Christmas season.

  59. I come from generations of tea drinking women. Hot, cold, iced, I love them all! I would love to try your whole Holiday collection but the one that stood out to me is the “Christmas Tea”. The cinnamon, orange and peppermint sounds lovely.

  60. …and I think I would have to choose the creamy pumpkin pie flavor…with either of the other ones as a close second:)!

  61. I have just discovered Chai tea myself recently and LOVE it. The Creamy Pumpkin sounds the best to me – mostly because there’s no mint in it πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for letting us know that the Bulk Herb Store caries it. I didn’t know.

  62. Creamy Pumpkin Pie sounds great! I didn’t love pumpkin as a child, but now I do so I love to try pumpkin flavored things.

  63. I kinda want the frosted kandy cane as I am a big peppermint fan, but also like you I want a warm tea. So I think I would be most interested in trying the Christmas tea.

  64. I really would love to try the Creamy Pumpkin Pie. It’s my favorite dessert and would love to try it in tea form.

  65. I subscribed to their youtube channel. Looks like there are a lot of videos I’m going to want to watch.

  66. Yum — I’ve been in such a tea mood lately — maybe it’s the multiple feet of snow outisde! The creamy pumpkin pie sounds delicious!

  67. I think the pumpkin tea sounds great, but they’re all out. It’s okay though, I’m ordering enough other stuff to make up for it!

  68. The creamy pumpkin pie sounds really good and I don’t even like pumpkin pie πŸ™‚ I might like the candy cane too since I tend to like peppermint teas.

  69. The Christmas tea sounds best to me and it sounds so pretty, the red colors. Though I think I would love all of these!

  70. I have to say Steph, you’ve got it rough!! πŸ™‚ The pumpkin tea sounds wonderfully decadent and the candy cane just the perfect thing for Christmas Eve! Have a wonderful day! By the way, thanks for the post on looking at the meaning of Christmas traditions, it’s really made me think and appreciate some things a lot more.

  71. I really like Chai also, but that Christmas Tea sounds like it would really hit the spot just about now……And think of all the good stuff your putting in at the same time to boost your immune system…

  72. I love tea in the winter especially. There is nothing like curling up with a good book and a hot cup of tea. The Christmas Tea sounds wonderful and just perfect for those snowy cold evenings. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  73. I am a subscriber to the BulkHerbStore’s Channel on youtube. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  74. I read through your reviews and their website info and I must say that the Creamy Pumpkin Pie sounds delicious – great for a little treat in the evenings!
    I also thought the Festivi-Tea sounded wonderful and would be really interested in that one!

  75. Favorite sounding tea:
    All, but I’d go for the pumpkin pie since that one might be more unfamiliar to my taste buds πŸ˜€

  76. Hello! I never enter these contests….. but I LOVE bulkherbstore and I love the holiday teas:-)
    My favorite one is the one you didn’t preview- the sparkling festive tea, but I also really like the pumpkin pie one too!

  77. I am already a subscriber of Keeper of the Home, but I just subscribed to the bulkherbstore youtube videos.

  78. ps- I laughed so hard at that video:-) But tell you what- it made me get into the kitchen and make my own cup of chai…. I have her chai blend and not only is it as good as she brags…. but EVERYTIME I make it for guests (many who say they “hate tea”)- I always get RAVE reviews….. thank you shoshanna for your great mixture:-)

  79. Oh! I LOVE tea too! I would love the chia. Such a wonderful tea (my favorite, hot). The pumpkin sounds really good too, and I love pumpkin! Thanks for the give a way πŸ™‚

  80. The Pumpkin Pie tea sounds delicious — I love teas that go well with cream and honey! And I’ve been very good this year about not baking too many sweet things for the holidays….This sounds like a healthier way to indulge!

  81. The Creamy Pumpkin Pie tea sounds wonderful. I definitely want to try that one…and now you’ve put me in the mood for tea, so I’m going to go fix a cup. πŸ™‚

  82. Festivi-Tea sounds good for the Spouse (Lemongrass for the ever-present pulled muscles of my basketball playing husband!) now heavy into exam week. I like the idea of the Pumpkin Pie, although I sometimes find rooibos to be a bit…barky, do you know what I mean? Perhaps real bulk tea fixes that. Here’s what I’d like to add, as well – a “red hot” cinnamon tea. Sweet with a little bite – do they make a blend that rings that kind of bell with you?

  83. My love for pumpkin leads me to the creamy pumpin pie as my first choice. Plus I love milk in tea.

  84. I would love to try out the Christmas Tea. This is the time of year where I find I am especially fond of teas and the comfort they bring to an evening inside by the fire with the snow outside.

  85. And, I just subscribed to KOTH via e-mail. (I thought I had done that already, but, no, ’twas the other site.) πŸ™‚

  86. I was just thinking about their teas this morning! I’m terribly allergic to oranges and so many teas have orange peels in them. Do they make some varieties without the peel?

    I think the pumpkin spice tea sounds lovely. Thanks for doing this giveaway.

  87. We love pumpkin so I’d really like to try the pumpkin tea. We buy canned pumpkin this time of year and store it to have all year round.

  88. I think the Christmas tea sounds nice. I would REALLY like to try the Chai tea, that is my favorite.

  89. The Creamy Pumpkin Pie tea sounds the most appealing to me right now – I’m loving teas that are full of flavor and go well with rich raw milk/cream.

  90. I would love the pumpkin pie! I’m on a very restricted diet, but I could actually enjoy this instead of missing the “real” version.

  91. I love all things tea. I am intrigued by the description and look of the creamy pumpkin tea. It sounds and looks delicious! My sisters and I love a good cup of tea. We inherited this from our mother. I would love to have a new tea to share with them.

  92. The Christmas tea sounds really good – I love things that taste and smell “seasonal.” I’m really into cinammon and mint right now and the Christmas tea sounds like a great blend.

  93. I think the pumpkin one sounds fabulous. And it’s out of stock on the website, so I would love to win it!

  94. Sparkling Festivi-Tea!!! My two year old asked for pink tea today and I think she would enjoy this! I know I will πŸ™‚

  95. The Creamy Pumpkin Pie Tea sounds most appealing to me right now, but I think I would also enjoy the Frosty Kandy Kane tea. What a great day to have this giveaway…we’re snowed in while a big storm keeps piling more drifts around our house. A steamy cup of tea – perfect!

  96. I think the creamy pumpkin pie sounds delish! I think I would love it because I love pumpkin anything πŸ˜‰

  97. Wow! I just stumbled across this sight with a Google search for “homemade cloth diapers.” I am so glad I found it! I LOVE Bulk Herb Store and I think I have now found my favorite blog. I just started my own blog today and your site will be a great inspiration!!

    The “Christmas Tea” sounds delicious! I am currently drinking up the “Mama’s Red Raspberry Brew” tea from Bulk Herb Store. The Christmas Tea sounds so light and wonderful. I love the smell of tea and can just imagine the smells of the season floating through our home.

    Thank you Bulk Herb Store for this promo and Keeper of the Home for the giveaway! Congratulations to the lucky winner!!

  98. I love the Bulk Herb Store. Very informative. I think my fav would be the pumpkin but I really like mint tea so I’d probably love the candy cane one as well. They really look gorgeous.

  99. The creamy pumpkin pie tea sounds delicious (hot tea with cream is a weakness of mine). I tried some of their Christmas teas last year and loved them. So yummy!

  100. Although pumpkin pie is generally a favorite for me, I think I love to have a little more Christmas Tea right now- a bit light & fruity yet spicy!

  101. The creamy pumpkin tea sounds good as I am trying to cut back on my dessert intake, and teas like that are a good substitute.

  102. I’m going to have to say the Christmas Tea, because I’ve enjoyed Christmas blends in the past (both tea and coffee) because it means a little bit of spice!

  103. The Christmas tea sounds yummy! All those spices and teas combined would warm me up on a cold Michigan day or night!

  104. Definitely Creamy Pumpkin Pie!!! I love everything that tastes like pumpkin. I am new to tea and appreciate the fact they let you know to add honey and/or cream to get the FULL pumpkin pie taste. There is snow on the ground in Ohio and there is nothing cozier than a warm mug to wrap my hands around!!!

  105. Stephanie I just subscribed to Keeper of the Home through email updates. I hope I win the MADEON giveaway!!! Thank you for the extra giveaways for email subscribers. I subscribe to Saving naturally and duh I didn’t know you had another blog.

  106. The kids think creamy pumpkin sounds best! Must be the creamy bit–I like the idea of pumpkin spices as the weather turns cold.

  107. I think that the Christmas tea sounds amazing. what better way to relax than a rich, spicy mixture. Plus, its got cinnamon!

  108. oh… and I don’t know if it counts, but I’m already subscribed to your blog via google reader.

  109. Creamy Pumpkin Pie sounds AMAZING. I love pumpkin pie and creamy hot drinks so…there you go!

  110. Oh I just love tea. I have tried my own little variation of the Christmas tea and it was very yummy with honey, but I must say you have talked me into the pumpkin pie tea with honey and cream. I would love to try it. πŸ™‚

  111. I think the pumpkin tea sounds amazing! I have yet to tried loose teas, but I know once I do, I will love them!

  112. The Creamy Pumpkin Pie tea sounds wonderful! I love the taste of pumpkin pie, so this would be a great addition to my winter teas.

  113. I think the Christmas Tea sounds yummy, but I would probably give this to my sister….she would LOVE it!!!
