158 Tasting Notes

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!!

I’m worried, this is rated reallllly low here. Trying it for the first time on my way to grab a client for another appointment, hopefully I enjoy it enough. I’ll log the review later.

Trying it for the first time right now, but I’m headed into an appointment so I’ll have to log later. I just didn’t want to forget to put a note up and log the mug!

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.

drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas

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.

Just logging how much of this I drank over the Thanksgiving weekend! I have probably 4 cups worth left, luckily there’s a LARGE Della Terra order on the way.

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.
