drank Caramel Creme by Della Terra Teas
4026 tasting notes

Guess I never came back to write something about this tea. I’m sick. It’s official. Staying home today and refusing to do work. Not that I’ve been able to sleep but whatever. Made myself a cup of this as it was basically the first one in my sample basket that I touched.

This is actually an alright tea. My main problem with della terra, besides teh chocolate Thing is that I seem to only be able to get a tasty cup when I double up on the leaf. Even then it’s still a fairly average cup of tea when I compare it to something like butiki’s flavoured teas. Do I like della terra better than say David’s Tea or Adagio? Omg yes! But I still feel like most of their tea is good for that initial “looking for sometif fun to drink occasionally” rather than a “here’s a staple I always want in my cupboard” if that makes sense. So sample sizes for me seems to be the way to go! Tank goodness for try me packs!

As for this tea? It’s on the better end :) there’s a nice creamy caramel flavour that’s going on without any weird astringency. I know my nose etc is all stuff up but this is good.

Wishing you speedy recovery! Agree with you that there is a difference between a tea that’s fun to try versus one you want to have around to drink regularly. Samples are fantastic and I’ll be much more likely to try a new company if it offers them. Teavivre, Butiki, Harney&Sons, Simpson & Vail, Golden Moon and Teajo are all companies I have been lured to partly because of the opportunity for well-priced sample sizes. Best is when every tea is offered in a sample size, but I also appreciate the companies who throw in a freebie or 2 with your order.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
