My third and final tea that I sent out to the participants of the 12 Days of Christmas Swap. Mmm… this is so deliciously rich and creamy. A really good representation of a vanilla tea … and I’m really glad I chose this as one of the three teas. For me, it was between this and the French Vanilla Assam from 52Teas, and ultimately, I chose this one because I had already tasted the French Vanilla Assam but not this, and I wanted the teas to be an adventure for me as well as the other participants … and since I was already definitely sure I wanted the maple tea, I wanted the other two to be teas I hadn’t yet tried.

And I’m really glad I’m trying this today. Sweet, creamy, decadent vanilla flavor. Rich, smooth, and yummy.

I love the French Vanilla Assam – I’m actually waiting on getting it custom blended! But I’ve also loved pretty much everything I’ve had from Della Terra as well.

Did you end up preferring this one over the 52teas?

The two are very different. The very first blending of the French Vanilla Assam … I preferred over this. However, the second blending of the French Vanilla Assam was not as good … so, I would say that those two (reblend vs. this) are about even.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
