155 Tasting Notes
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.
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.
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.
My last cup of tea at work in my rush between clients before I can go home to my Della Terra Eight Candles :) Or…hopefully one of my 3 Black Friday tea purchases in the mail!! I like a nice plain assam or ceylon tea, so this is a good end to the work day and the lack of flavored teas today makes me really look forward to a delicious treat this evening!!
