156 Tasting Notes
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!!
Drinking this right now, it’s ok. Red wine ish flavor, it’s a nice strong brew, but it isn’t something I will reorder or drink without blending anymore. It has an ok rating which is cool, but I’m just not a big fan. I’ll stick to Assam Melody for my plain black tea for now until something better comes along.
I brought a few premade teabags to my cousins for Thanksgiving because I don’t drink alcohol and I still had a S’mores teabag left in my tote! Yay! That means I can drink a delicious desserty tea at work, which I wasn’t planning on doing today.
I so love this tea, subtle chocolatiness, creamy marshmallow feel, with a bit of graham cracker spice.
I think I’ll just be sitting at my desk drinking tea all day since both of my appointments today canceled. So I’m drinking this, not my favorite, but it’s the only white tea I have so I thought I’d make today green and white teas and the delicious black flavored teas when I get home.
Ironically, the method we use in my job is based off of the book Three Cups of Tea, and despite the controversy, I think I’m going to spend today reading it.
Drank this yesterday, I enjoyed a cup before I visited family for Thanksgiving but didn’t really pay close attention to the flavors. I ordered this because I liked Azteca Fire from Teavana. Della Terra’s is way better, the flavor is a subtle smooth chocolate and the chili is wonderful!! I love that you can actually taste the chili instead of just feeling it like with Azteca Fire.
I usually brew a full pot of tea when I get home from work everyday, and I would love to make a pot of this, but I actually think it may be too spicy for me to drink that much of it. But it is definitely a fun tea, would probably suppress your appetite or be a good after dinner tea.
I’m not a big green tea drinker so sometimes I have to remind myself to branch out. I’ve had this one for a couple months and have sipped it maybe three times, it’s in my mug on my desk this morning.
The smell is so crisp and fresh and the taste is just as good. I like Jasmine in teas, it’s a subtle floral flavor. I don’t have a ton to write about this, most Jasmine green teas are similar, this one is just particularly fresh tasting.
