drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas
156 tasting notes

I bought this because I posted in the discussions asking everyone’s favorite decadent tea choices and Rebecca Lynn said that Smore’s from Della Terra is insane. SO CORRECT! I am loving everything from Della Terra right now but smores is amazing.

The first thing I could taste was the vanilla creaminess of the marshmallow. The chocolate came next with that rich smoothness. I cannot wait to drink more of this tea, I love it!

It also has me on a Della Terra kick, making my wish list for Black Friday and looking forward to sharing these with my family this holiday weekend (even though I’m sure they’re far less interested…oh well, more for me!). GREAT suggestion Rebecca Lynn, thank you!

Oh my goodness! SO delicious!! I’m sipping this at my desk at work right now for the first time and the first thing I taste is a roasty marshmallow flavor, it even SMELLS like a roasty marshmallow.

The caramel flavor I think comes after you’ve enjoyed the sip, like an aftertaste, which is actually fairly nice because the tea is excellent all the way through the sip. No bitterness, no dryness. I steeped for 3 minutes at boiling with 1.5 teaspoons.

drank Winter Nog by Della Terra Teas

I made a cup of this as soon as the package came in as I rushed out the door to take my kitten to the vet…it made a cold blistery Vermont day warm and cozy.

This tea has a sugary sweetness to it without feeling sticky, I want to say it’s like frosting but it is much more like real eggnog than that. The cinnamon adds the festive spice to it and the snowflake sprinkles make it FUN!

I usually bring one or two teas to work with tea to drink throughout the day and this one is in my bag today. I love it! This is my first Della Terra experience and I just made my Black Friday Wish List at my desk :p

I got this as a sample with my Della Terra order and drank it last night with a couple of Pepperidge Farm Ginger Men on the side :) Such a treat! It taste very much like a gingerale flavor. It’s not super spicy like other ginger teas I’ve tried. It’s a very sweet, cozy kind of flavor and I love that it’s a rooibus tea and I can drink it at night!

I will probably order the 2oz bag on Black Friday because I love to keep teas on hand for upset stomachs and what better than a gingerale flavor rooibus tea for that? I recommend it

drank Hazelnut by Adagio Teas

YUM!! Richy, nutty, smooth, delicious! I love this mixed with chocolate tea or roasted mate. The smell alone is enough to make my mouth water. I’m the anti-hazelnut coffee person and I never thought I’d enjoy a hazelnut tea but it is so good. I love Adagio’s black flavored teas for blending, and I suggest you use this to blend with any tea that you wish had a warmer, cozier taste!

drank Chocolate by Adagio Teas

People don’t seem to like this tea! I suppose I can’t rate it appropriately because I tend to mix it with Adagio’s hazelnut tea. Mixed together it is reminiscent of coffee, without the acidity or bitterness if brewed right.

This is a great flavor to blend with a roasted mate as well, especially for those of you switching from coffee to tea@

I think this would be amazing iced. It is super sweet, fruity, and tart. I wish they would call it Raspberry Lemonade Mate, just because the combination of Raspberry and Lemon didn’t occur to me like that when I bought it :p.

It has a great energy boost, so I feel it would make a fabulous summer pick me up without having to drink something hot. I probably will hold off on buying it again until the weather warms up (which is for like 3 days in July here in Vermont), but all in all I would say it’s a good tea. I drink it now when I need a refreshing taste but don’t have a seltzer with me.

Sweet fruity tea lovers, here it is!

drank Samurai Chai Maté by Teavana
156 tasting notes

Love it. Sweet, nutty, spicy, fresh, with an energy boost! After My Morning Mate, this is my favorite mate from Teavana. With Teavana’s prices being a bit steep, this isn’t something that I would probably repurchase but it was good to have a couple ounces of it to try out.

If you’re a big chai fan or you like spicy teas, this is great for you. I learn more towards savory chocolately teas, but this is decent nonetheless.

drank Azteca Fire by Teavana

This tea is my joy. I will always regret spending so much at Teavana, but I’ll just refer to the flavors for the sake of the review.

I LOVE the chili peppers. You can’t taste them in the tea but you can feel them when you drink it. The strawberry makes it sweet and tangy, the chocolate makes it warm and decadent, and the chili gives it an unexpected kick. I love ending my day with a pot of this tea, I don’t worry about my caffeine intake and it feels as indulgent as a cocktail for me.

drank Honeybush Vanilla by Teavana

This mixes well with literally everything. It’s fabulous on its own but is also great with my Adagio Chocolate and Hazelnut teas. I think this is just a good all around base for flavored teas and it cuts down on the caffeine in your cup if that’s something you’re looking for.

I just ordered a bunch of flavored teas from Adagio and I think I will be mixing them with this a ton. It’s about $4.80 per 2oz, which is good for Teavana but I think I can find it cheaper elsewhere for the same quality or better.

If you’re a Teavana fan, put this in your cupboard, you’ll use it!

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.
