Another from the travelling tea box!

I used 2 perfect teaspoons in my Travel Mug and we took it to Point Pleasant park and admired the chipmunks and big fat bluejays. It’s blizzarding where I used to live.. it’s plus 18 here today. WHOOP!

This was a great fall companion tea! The two most prominent flavours I got were sweet apple and cinnamon – it was followed by a caramel and candy taste and something a bit floral, which put me off a bit- and it was almost a bit too sweet for me! There was something strange in the aftertaste, it reminded me a stevia, but I know there is no stevia in the blend. Maybe an aftertaste from the sugar crystals? Either way it was a bit cloying.

Anyways, that’s minor, it was still a yummy blend! Not one I would purchase for myself, but one I was very happy to try!

Aw I love squirrels. I go to the park every day for my lunch hour and sometimes I end up feeding the squirrels my lunch haha
This does sound like a very nice fall tea :)

Amariel

Oh, this sounds good! How much does it cost to send the tea box travelling to the next person, on average?

TheTeaFairy

Caramel candy apple seems to be a flavour hard to achieve properly with tea. I have tried a few and they also ended up tasting like an apple pie of some sort. Do you know one that is closer to the true taste?

Amariel

I think that Davids did this relatively well with Big Apple, though I would love to see them do it with a black tea or dark oolong too.

This one definitely didn’t taste like apple pie! Definitely closer to a candy apple :3

@Heather – between 15-25 bucks for the travelling tea box, depending on if it’s within Canada or US :)

Amariel

Oh, ok. Thanks! I have been reading about these Della Terra teas lately and they seem to all be very good!

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
