drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas

Dang it, this tea is not doing it for me. I’m rarely the odd man out so I’m wondering why it is so with this tea.

Dry, the leaf smells great. It also looks moist. Like chocolate cake crumbs or something. I see the marshmallows in the dry leaf and I also see them floating in my steeper as I wait for it to steep but the base is quite strong and it’s not coming close to s’mores in flavour for me. I get marshmallow aftertaste and as the cup is sitting next to me I get the nice aroma wafting up at me but the taste is lacking.

I have 2 oz so I’ll play around, maybe I overstepped, maybe I overleafed (although other notes say it is too weak if you just use the 1tsp for 6 oz) at one perfect scoop for 8 oz. I added sugar only so aside from sweetening there is nothing to take away from the tea’s flavour.

Everyone is raving about this tea and it sounded so so good. Gonna rate next time around, see if I can make it work.

Can’t STAND that one, the smell makes my stomach turn. Same with 8 candles, but I know that’s also a very popular one, so it’s probably me!

I was not a huge fan at first but I ended up mixing it with DAVIDs Toasted Marshmallow and that helped

I used to absolutely love this one but after 50g or so, I got really sick of it, and it was a huge chore to finish the other 50g I purchased during my S’mores craze. So looks like you’re not alone!

I kind of feel like with S’Mores in general… you go camping, you bring your chocolate, marshmellows and graham and you go nuts for your 3-4 day camping trip. Then you go home never wanting to see another marshmellow again, until the next time you go camping or are by a fire.

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
