Thank you VariaTEA for sending me this sample (especially considering the “tea accident” when you were packaging it) – really appreciate it. :))

This is a pretty typical Della Terra dessert black tea. There is something about them that all taste similar to me. This one is no exception. Yes it’s apple, yes it’s dark brown sugar (not quite molasses for me) and then it has that Della Terra dessert taste. I think it’s good, I’m enjoying the couple of cups I’ve had tonight, but it’s not special for me.
Thanks VariaTEA for sending this my way.

Oh the tea accident. haha.

I get what you mean though about it being typical Della Terra. I think I just really like the Della Terra dessert flavor. You never know unless you try though and I am always happy to share.

This one will definitely be on my next eventual order.

Abby Noelle

Is it tarty?

Dexter

IMO – not it’s not tart at all – it’s sweet apple and cooked, almost burned brown sugar.

VariaTEA

I second what Dexter said. This is most definitely a sweet tea.

Bio

C.S. Lewis – “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

I needed to update my profile. I joined Steepster 03Mar13. I am just amazed at how much my tastes have changed since then.
When I discovered loose leaf tea about a year and half ago, I didn’t know anything other than my local Davids and Teavana/Teaopia. Stumbling onto Steepster CHANGED EVERYTHING.
Hello, my name is Dex I’m a tea addict.
I’ve been through the “I need to try every single tea out there” phase. I really hope the worst of that has passed. I’ve learned enough to know that I only need to try HALF of all the teas out there. LOL
When I started this journey, I was all about the flavored rooibos and fruity tisanes. Don’t get me wrong there is still room for dessert (chocolate/caramel/nutty) Rooibos teas in my cupboard and I still do enjoy them, BUT I am quickly learning to appreciate the some of the straight teas of the world.
Big bold (but not icky)pu’erh is suddenly my favorite, followed by woody/roasted oolongs. I’m just starting to explore straight black teas, and have found some that I really like.
Generally speaking I’m not into greens at all, only like the occasional green oolong, and white teas are just too mild for my tastes (unless they are fruit flavored). I still enjoy really good fruit tisanes, but am now cold steeping them.
I don’t like floral/herbal blends, and mint anything is not on my preferred list.
I am still exploring new teas, adapting to my changing tastes, understanding more every day how little I really know about tea. Ultimately I would love to find approximately 50 teas that I just “can’t live without” and always have them in my cupboard. That might not be practical, but that what I’m searching for. It’s going to be a fun journey.

All in all, I love this site. I’ve met some wonderful people, and have gotten to try some amazing teas because of them. It really restores your faith in humanity when you get a note saying “oh by the way I sent you some tea”. Wonderful, generous, people here.
