I had never tried Della Terra teas before, so I ordered two of the pick your own sample packs and this was one of my picks. Those things are brilliant and I wish every company would give you a trial option like that! I can smell cinnamon, oatmeal and raisins when this tea is dry and a strong cinnamon scent when it’s brewed. When trying it plain I can’t pick out much flavor on the sip, but the aftertaste is very much like I just had an oatmeal cookie in my mouth! Next I added what may amount to a little too much sugar – whoops. The cinnamon is much more pronounced on the sip and the cookie aftertaste is stronger too. Now I’ll try it with cream! The cream tones down the cinnamon which is nice because it was being a bit of a stage hog. The scent is more even too and I can pick out the oatmeal taste at the end of each sip as well as after now. My first impression is that this tea is yummy and interesting, but it isn’t awing me either. What it is doing is making me want to bake oatmeal raisin cookies. I wonder if that is the result of a flavor association in my brain. My mouth tastes oatmeal and my brain expects my stomach to feel full? Strange!

Bio

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! I like a little sugar in my tea. I love caffeinated tea, but since I limit myself to one cup a day, I have been exploring more rooibos and honeybush teas.
