The last from my first Della Terra order.

Oddly, this one tasted a lot like Oatmeal Raisin Cookie except without the raisins. I tasted cinnamon, and an oaty-sort of pastry flavor, and didn’t really get any pumpkin or pie impressions. This surprised me, since this one is such a hit with most Steepsterites. :(

Once again, I just couldn’t enjoy the black base. I hurriedly finished my Della Terra order off so I could go back to drinking my other teas.

Overall, my opinion of Della Terra is higher than that of Davids (as despite how much this just tasted like Oatmeal Raisin Cookie again the flavors of what I’ve tried are quite good) but I think I’m too snobby to order again.

Bio

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
