Free sample from Della Terra.

The tea smells very good. Almost like sweet, rose, strawberry, candylike and of course, hibiscus.

The brewed tea smells like sweet and kinda of spicey, hibiscus, very faintly reminds me of jelly beans.

The tea tastes like sweet hibiscus, some strawberry taste. I didnt want to add any sweetener because there was a jelly bean in it, but it could have used a bit more sweetness to bring out that real jelly bean candy kind of sweetness.

My pet peeve about this tea is that the mix has a bunch of different sized peices in it. There are real large dried strawberries, whole jelly beans, and very small chopped peices. There was a lot of settling in the bag. It was hard to get a decent scoop with everything in it.

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.
