drank Walnut Brittle by Della Terra Teas

Thank you so much to Sandy’sCuppa for so generously sending me this in a swap.

The dry tea smells amazing, like sweet walnuts. There is green tea with peices of nuts throughout. Brewed the tea smells almost exactly like baklava. I spent 5 minutes just smelling the tea before I even tasted it. Smelled so amazing!

The liquor is dark yellow-green, looks almost cloudy.

The tea tastes creamy, buttery, nutty, delicious. I am getting some walnut flavour but mostly hazelnut. The tea is not overly sweet, which is good. Sometimes walnuts make my tongue tingle, and I am getting a little bit of this while drinking the tea, but I am more than ok with that.

Delicious tea!

Walnuts make my tongue tingle too! I was hesitant about whether or not I would ever try this tea because of that, but after reading your thoughts I’m more optimistic now that I may actually like it!

I would say the tingling was nothing near what I get when I eat a whole walnut. I think it must be an allergic reaction or something. My brother gets it too.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
