I know a lot of people are upset with this one because it’s smokey, but honestly, I have to say that I enjoy it. I wasn’t sure at first, but now that I’m revisiting it, I’m definitely liking it. I’m a little disappointed that it isn’t what I expected, but I do enjoy it for what it is.

I decided to try it with milk this time, to see if it brought the chocolate out any more. The red sprinkles make the milk look really odd. There’s a faint bergamot, with the smokey flavor upfront. There’s definitely more of a creamy milk chocolate flavor that I couldn’t taste much without the milk. I still don’t recommend it to anyone who doesn’t like smokey teas, but I’m really enjoying this one now.

I think part of the reason that people were finding this offputting is because if you a) haven’t had a smoky tea previously or b) don’t like smoky teas, it can taste very strange/unpleasant! Of course, no prior warning via the tea description was a problem as well. I definitely enjoy it for what it is :)

I definitely understand people not enjoying this, the first time I had it, I wasn’t sure how I felt because it just wasn’t what I was expecting. I really enjoy smoky teas, so this is good to me now! I wonder how it ended up smoky though

I’m noticing that Della Terra doesn’t fully list ingredients for their teas…. I feel like either they don’t blend them themselves or there’s some sort of missed step between blenders and website ppl.

Bio

I’m a premed student at a university near Austin. I’ve recently started getting very much into tea, but I’m still learning. I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, and California, and each place has it’s own charm, but Colorado was definitely my favorite place. I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.
