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.
149 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.
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.
Drinking it again…this day is going slowly. Thank God for tea!
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
