3715 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.
Every time i drink this tea, I am once again blown away by how delicious it is. There’s something to be said for a good unflavoured black that has enough going on that it makes you take notice. The kind of black that stands on it’s own and teases your mouth with it’s changing profile.
This is one of those blacks. And I love it. Staple in my cupboard for sure once i work through the rest of it.
You know when you’re sick and should probably stay home to get over it but you’ve been cooped up at home all weekend and you just want to not be in the house so you go in to work anyway? Yeaaaaah… that’s me!
So I made sure to kick off my day with a bunch of tea/matcha and other delicious beverages to help me get through as much of the day as possible.
English Toffee Matcha? Yes! Sweet and satisfactorily delicious. Mostly its just really nice on my throat first thing.
