29 Tasting Notes
I’ve been hunting for a spiced orange tea for a while after being served some awhile ago. I’ve always been disappointed, even if the tea was good, it just wasn’t quite right. Lala sent me some of this in a swap. This is it!! This is what I’ve been looking for! I’m so excited, this is the best orange tea I’ve had. Nice sweet orange with the perfect blend of spices. Everything works well together. The juicy sweetness of the orange is supported by the spices, not overshadowed by them.
Sinfully good! The smell when dry was tart so I was a little worried, but there was no reason to be the vanilla balanced it out well. Creamy, fruity, goodness! As it cooled it was like biting into a freshly pealed apple skin, makes me wonder how this would taste iced?
I expected to love this tea. It’s ok but not great. It lacks the orange flavor I expected. I could smell it when I opened the baggie so I thought the orange would be the prominent taste. Its just not there. Once steeped I couldn’t even smell orange just a spicy sweetness. Now as a spiced black it was good, had a nice flavor and I enjoyed it. But I rated it on being a orange tea and this just wasn’t orange.
This is the perfect balance of flavor. I can taste it all! Sometimes with a flavored tea there’s so much going on that one flavor over shadows the other, not with this tea! I used just a little sugar and this taste like raspberry pie ala-mode from the amish country. They put a layer of caramel on the bottom of the crust then the berry filling and whipped cream on top. Yes! Raspberry pie with a cup of black tea is exactly how this taste. Yummy!!
Can barely taste the orange :( I want a nice strong orange tea. This wasn’t bad. It was just weak, I even left the bag in the cup the 2nd time I drank it thinking it might get stronger.
Loved it! Marshmallowie goodness, yuuuum.
This is different. Lol. To many flavors to really pick any out. But its still enjoyable. It had me and my son laughing as we tried to describe it to each other. It may not have been on the top of my list for a Della Terra Tea, but it was fun and I would order it again to drink with the boys.
This was my first matcha and it was so good!! I followed the instructions and made it all 3 ways.
Cold brew :
Yummmm, I could drink that on a hot day all day long.
Hot brew :
Oh yes Heaven! yes this is the way to have it. Just creamy, vanilla, yummieness!!!!
This was great also. I could see myself having this in the mornings when I don’t like something to heavy.
Meh, not inpressed. It was week, even after steeping 10 min. it couldn’t hold up to a little milk,the flavors was hidden. I’m sorry, if you cant handle a little milk and sugar you can’t be called Chai! If I tried to drink it plain the black tea just wasn’t strong enough. I will use this for the kids – they’ll drink anything!
This tea smells heavenly, the whole time my water was heating I had my nose in the bag! Is a very delicate flavor and needed no sweetener. I steeped my stars 3 times- the 2nd time was the best, but the 3rd was still quite enjoyable.
Ok, I just drank a hot cup of cardboard!! This is the worst tea I’ve ever had. Thank goodness my nephews love it or it would be to the bin for this tea.
Love this tea when I have a head cold! The cinnamons strong enough to clear my sinus’s and the apple is a nice after flavor. BUT if I’m not sick it actually burns my sinus so bad I become stuffy and my eyes water! I do keep this as a staple though. Love to have it on hand for when a cold starts, it seems to chase it away real quick. So I guess this would be a medical tea for me.
Having a nice quiet eve at home. When reading a good book I love a large hot strong cup of chai. And this certainly holds up to some cream and sugar, they seam to bring out all the flavors of the honey, vanilla, and spices. Nothings smothered! Very Good.
Yummy goodness, this is comfort tea at its best. This will be my go to on a bad day. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Well balanced flavors, the black or the vanilla doesn’t overshadow the other.
I got this in my mystery box! Wow, what a surprise! Perfection – that’s all I can say. Growing up we had a walnut tree in the side yard and my mom would make walnut pralines. Oh the memory’s this tea brought back. My second steep was just as nice as the first. No noticeable difference. The third steep lost a little of the sweetness but was still strong on the walnut flavor. I added 1 cube of sugar and it was just as enjoyable as the first steep. I’m glad this was a 2oz pouch.
Wow! Tart! Good! I think I would like this iced, blended with a nice strong green tea. As it cooled the flavor became fuller.
Not much to say. Just a plain green. I’ll use this as a base with some of my herbals.
The smell of this tea made me want to skip the steep and just eat it!! But I controlled myself and waited the five minutes to drink it. At first it was to hot to really taste anything But after a few minutes of cooling owww the yummy goodness!! I added just a touch of sweetener – perfect!
Every holloween I cant wait to get a bag of flavored tootsie rolls just so I can pick out all the lime ones!!! This tea taste exactly like my favorite tootsie roll, I cant get enough. A must have! Half way through I added a little sweetener, nope it didn’t need it.
This is my first rooibos. The smell worried me at first. It was like vanilla pipe tobacco that my grandfather used to smoke. But I was pleased with the taste. Very smooth and sweet. I need to get a different strainer because mine aloud a lot of leaf into my cup, it must not be fine enough.

Iced this with some black tea – fantastic! Makes me excited for summer. The whole time I was day dreaming about running around outside in the sprinklers ( this is the coldest day we’ve had in years here, 12° with a wind chill of – 15 to – 20 below) yep this tea made me feel like summer was here and I was staying in to get out of the heat!! Without the black tea though it just taste like fruit punch.
Was like drinking hot fruit punch. I like it, but next time I’m going to blend it with a black tea and have it iced- defendantly something I would drink in the summer.
