By Odin, that’s minty! The tea smells more like candy canes dry. Not really the flavour I was looking for.

I’m not sure what a sugar plum. Don’t remember if I’ve ever had one.

This tea has a nice aroma of fruit and spices. The flavour is sweet and fruity, but needs a little more spice. Otherwise, pretty good.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 15 sec

I ate a sugar plum for the first time not too long ago. It was small and just tasted like a plum. I’m really not sure what makes it different from other plums aside from the smaller size.

This is from my very first Della Terra order. I’d wanted more Lemon Chiffon, but they were out. So I got this instead.

The aroma is wonderful dry, and still really nice brewed. I like lime, but I’m picky lime flavoured anything. This is like drinking a key lime pie. I really liked the creamy lime flavour.

And it’s good with the Lemon Chiffon too.

Since it is now the Spring Equinox… I’m not having Autumn tea.

I really like the maple aroma of this. The flavour reminds me of these maple brown sugar candies. Now I wonder how it is with vanilla.

Thanks to yappychappy for this.

Stargate sipdown! This smells really nice and minty. The flavour reminds me of those mint chocolates that come out in Winter time, but not as strong.

This is my pre-class sipdown. I do really like the smell of bergamot. The flavour is really good. I very much enjoy the creaminess of this tea.

I don’t remember who sent me this, but thank you!

Since it nearly Spring… I am having Autumn tea.

This has a nice scent. The flavour is good. It’s nice and Autumn, but needs a little more spices. Good with yams.

Thanks Emily M for this.

You’re welcome! And I agree 100%. This one needs more spices.

This is the first Adagio blend I made.

It has a nice scent of apple and blueberry. The vanilla isn’t very strong, but there is a slightly sweet, fruity flavour.
