I think I now understand what people on here say about some (most) Della Terra tasting the same? To me, the smores and the eight candles are quite similar probably because of both having marshmallows.

Well, this one and pineapple upside down cake are quite similar also.

If I close my eyes and smell I can’t quite tell the difference. Ditto for the aroma of the brewed tea. This is not really a criticism it’s just… why would I buy different ones if they’re all the same? Just buy a big bag of the one and Bob’s your uncle.

Smells cakey. Brewed, it doesn’t deliver what your nose picked up. It actually gets better as it cools. A lot better. Ah, maybe I just miss my vanilla creamer to add the creaminess and mouthfeel. All I added was a bit of sugar. Not making this one a staple either. (I am, however, making a staple of the almond biscotti from Della Terra. Wowza!)

Lol at Bob’s your uncle. Being French Canadian and having lived my whole life in french speaking communities, there’s a lot of English expressions I’m unfamiliar with. i’m guessing this one means and you’re all set or something like that?

…And Bob’s your uncle is an expression of unknown origin, commonly used in Britain and Commonwealth nations. Typically, someone says it to conclude a set of simple instructions, similar to the French expression “et voilà!” or the American slang expressions “…and that’s that,” or “…and there you go!” (Source: Wikipedia)

Cute, thanks for the info, I like it! I’m gonna add it to my répertoire, but can’t use it much around here, people are likely to let my know that Bob is NOT their uncle, lol!
Will keep it for Steepster, haha!

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.
