drank Fireside Spice by Della Terra Teas
207 tasting notes

The plan today was to try to go the entire day without tea. I’ve been feeling fuzzy brained lately and wondered if it had to do with tea consumption. Then the mailman delivered a package of tea I ordered from Della Terra. Each of the teas were calling to me…so I gave in.

This tea was nearly everything I had hoped for. The dry tea smells heavenly and could be a potpourri to scent your house (if you wanted to waste it). The first flavor I tasted was a strong cinnamon. Kind of like a red hot. But quickly the other flavors come out – vanilla and ginger. YUM! The more I sip it the more I enjoy the smooth flavor of the vanilla.

Now the question is, can I resist the urge to make a second cup?!?

drank Eight Candles by Della Terra Teas
207 tasting notes

Just made a foamy tea latte with this delicious tea. This is definitely my favorite dessert tea. PLEASE Della Terra keep this as a regular! I don’t think the 4 ounces I’ve purchased will last long enough and I’m too broke to buy more right now :)

Azzrian

I know!!! I NEED more but can’t purchase right now as I have too many other obligations – Holidays – Daughter’s bday and I owe one of my sororitea sisters for a tea membership we are splitting lol I can’t buy more tea right now BUT OMG I love this stuff it HAS to stay around!
Please Della Terra!

Em

drank Chance Combinations by Custom
207 tasting notes

While looking through my samples this morning, I decided to blend a couple. I wanted a chocolate-y coconut-y blend. I took my Coconut Oolong from Zen Tea and blended it with Teajo’s Dark Chocolate Dream. If I blend these two in the future I will use a bit more Dark Chocolate Dream. It is a nice smooth cup of coconut tea with just the lightest hint of dark chocolate :) Dessert for breakfast. YUM!

drank Jasmine White Tea Classic by Shang Tea
207 tasting notes

FINALLY a good tea for the evening. After 2 bad choices, I decided to go back and try this one again. I followed Nicole and Shang Tea’s advice and steeped for 1 minute. It made a huge difference. I love how delicate the flavors are in white teas. This one is smooth and light. Floral teas like this are soooo yummy! I could see this being a staple on my shelf :)

I’m weeding out my tea right now and trying to drink my way through my samples and choose the favorites that I want to keep as a staple tea. I decided to go for a sample Nicole sent me. I made a pot of this tea and wanted to like it. How could a black tea with coconut go wrong? There was something off with the flavor and I couldn’t stomach it.

drank Rainforest Maté by Mighty Leaf Tea
207 tasting notes

This is my first maté tea. One of my good friends gave me a couple bags of it. I want to like it. At first taste I enjoy it, but the after taste has a fruity-minty flavor. As a person who doesn’t care for fruity teas, this is quite unpleasant. If you like minty fruit, this is a tea for you.

drank Toffee Dream by Zen Tea
207 tasting notes

This was my morning cuppa today and it was a toffee dream. The white tea and toffee flavor blend smoothly to make an almost creamy decadent treat.

Thank you, Zen Tea for this generous sample. I wanted to order more during the sale, but it appears to be out of stock :(

This was the free tasting tea at my local tea shop. It was delightful. I almost bought some, but I have a bag of Della Terra Candy Cane coming to me at Christmas. I find that I really do enjoy peppermint in my tea.

drank Earl Grey by All About Health Store
207 tasting notes

This is the tea of my childhood. My mother has always loved Earl Grey and Lady Grey tea. It’s my comfort tea. A little milk & sugar makes it even more enjoyable. Bumping up my rating because I love this tea :)

TheTeaFairy

Em, Earl Grey is also a childhood memory of mine, that’s probably why I always keep some around… it is the comfort tea by exellence, nothing complicated, just good tea!

Enjoying a cup of Eight Candles in honor of first night of the Festival of Lights. A divine way to celebrate :)

It’s thanks to you that I am obsessed with this tea :) Your review sold me. I hope you find it!
