I won this very generous amount of tea in one of the Della Terra giveaways. Unfortunately, it arrived at my school mail box just after I had left for the holidays. I was very interested in trying this, as one of the first loose leaf teas I ever tried was David’s Teas Chocolate Orange Puerh. I was really interested in how this compares with that, so ended up drinking this before trying all the winter Della Terra teas I received from my mom for Christmas.
It smells really good in the bag. When I first opened it, I was hit with a wonderful smell very much like the chocolate oranges you see at Christmas time. Unfortunately, I let it steep while working on homework, and let it go for much too long. I’m not sure exactly how long, but it was definitely enough to become bitter. I’m really excited about this one, so I’m sure I’ll try it again soon and pay special attention to make sure I do it properly! Hopefully it tastes as lovely as it smells.
