Why is this rating not higher?? It legit tastes just like those chocolate covered oranges that you smack while they’re in the foil and they break into slices. I feel like I don’t drink enough dessert teas with fruit in them, just the caramel chocolate marshmallow cake kind of things. This is delectable, the orange flavor is really apparent, it’s the first thing I notice.

I can’t quite smell the orange in the brewed cup of tea, but it smells VERY milk chocolaty. The chocolate flavor is a little more subtle, you get a malty feel with a fruity flavor. I like this balance, I’m going to enjoy this tea a lot!

I did not expect to like this, not sure why. Turns out it rocks and it’s a fabulous chocolaty tea that satisfies my sweet tooth and saves me 90 cents at the vending machine. Sipping this baby all day!

I’m such a loose tea snob but while rushing around from appointment to appointment this week I’ve turned to my tried and true Mate Chocolatte. It tastes a bit like a gingerbread to me, slightly like chocolate, but more like a rich spice.

This kind of keeps my energy up, I have 3 appointments to go, so technically about halfway done with the day but only about 2.5 hours, so I’m relying on this tea to get me home and cozied up with my kitten and my STASH of new teas.

I had such a fun time waking up with this today! I have steered away from Teavana’s My Morning Mate for some black teas since I have so many to try and this was SUCH a treat! It’s fruitier than I expected, which I love, sometimes with chocolate/fruit teas the fruit is almost non existent, the flavors feel drying, or the fruit tastes artificial. This tasted so spot on like a chocolate strawberry and I even underbrewed it. I’m in love with this tea and it is true to it’s name, no guessing flavors here, you’ll know as soon as you sip that you are drinking (a basically calorie free!) chocolate covered strawberry.

drank Candy Cane by Della Terra Teas

This is fabulous, my first love of tea was peppermint so I was excited to try this out. It’s not a typical peppermint, it is definitely candy like, a vanilly sweetness almost. I will be enjoying plenty of this while the snow falls here in the mountains tomorrow. This is a perfect holiday blend, all of Della Terra’s teas lack the bitterness that can steer me away from black tea, they are all smooth and easy and highly enjoyable to drink!

Mmmmmm! This is so spot on in flavor and smell I just can’t contain my love. I was hestitant about a pumpkin tea but then again, if you think about a gourd in a pie it’s a strange concept too…but a delicious one! This tea is smooth, with the perfect spice, and was an amazing addition to my night of watching DVR’s episodes of Fringe.

Holy goodness. I got my Black Friday Della Terra boxes in yesterday so I’ll be posting a few new reviews in the next few minutes. This is the first one I tried and I swear I will make sure I never run out of it. This is so delicious, naturally sweet, the perfect amount of cinnamon, it literally tastes like a cookie. I’ll be dreaming of this tea all day at work and cannot wait to get home to enjoy a cup. I’m going to be purchasing an extra bag for my oatmeal raisin cookie loving dad for Christmas too.

I’m having a bad tea day so far…I brewed this too long by accident and the first tea I had just wasn’t so great. Hopefully the next cup will be better. Regardless, I do love this tea and will enjoy it even though it is a bit strong.

I was expecting way more from this tea. I was drinking my new Della Terra teas last night and this is such a fun flavor that I thought I’d be on cloud nine. It does not taste like cookies and cream, period. Upon first sip, my thought was “this tastes like rum”. I suppose that isn’t negative for everyone, but I was hoping more for cookies. It does have a chocolatey smell once brewed, like melted chocolate chips and some flowery notes.

I brewed it for 3 mintues and it’s a bit bitter for me. All of this said, I’m probably still going to drink this during the work day today because the more I think of it as a slightly random flavored black tea, the more I’m ok with it. If you’re expecting it to taste as good as Della Terra’s flavored teas…lower your expectations.

drank Irish Breakfast by Adagio Teas

First cup at work for the day. The bitterness makes it a bit tangy, but I like it, it gives it an edge. It’s a rich flavor but not like nutty or chocolatey, more of a refreshing feel. I have a sample packet of this that I’ll probably finish off soon.

Profile

Bio

Born and raised in Connecticut, went to college in Vermont, and moved back to work after a year of service.

I love sweet, decadent, desserty teas the most but I also appreciate a strong refreshing cup of green or white tea. I recently started a matcha smoothie morning, sometimes mate or black tea, then black tea and rooibos throughout the day, and whatever my little heart desires most when I get home from work!

I’m obsessed with Della Terra, DAVIDs, and 52teas because they have the best dessert teas but also have a selection of some more straight things too. Recently tried Simpson and Vail and LOVE them too!!

I don’t have a rating system, I just kind of guess. I think I should make a rating system…

85-100 I want this in my cupboard always
75-85 I like it but I’m not rushing out to buy more immediately
60-75 Probably not going to want more than the sample
40-60 I don’t like this tea, I wouldn’t recommend it, and I won’t drink it again
0-40 This wasn’t even worth the sip.

Ok let’s try that for a bit now.
