Just got a new Della Terra order in! Yay! I just couldn’t resist their Earth Day sale – who doesn’t love a free sample, and a generous one at that?
So this is the sample that Della Terra thoughtfully picked out to send with my order. The decision might have been influenced by the fact that I ordered a sampler including lemon chiffon, lime chiffon, lemon lime cream tart, and strawberries & cream :) I hereby officially declare my love for Della Terra’s cream flavoring (anyone know for sure whether it’s vegetarian/vegan?).
The dry leaves of this tea smell exactly like the lemon chiffon, only orange-y. Absolutely lovely. Brewed, the tea smells like a creamsicle. At first, it tasted very creamy and the orange was barely coming through. As the tea cools, the orange really pops out and it tastes like orange ice cream! I don’t have much analysis – this really is just a lovely evening tea if you’re in the mood for something creamy, sweet, and less tart than the lemon or lime chiffons. Yum.
