3678 Tasting Notes
OMG. THIS…THIS is a wonderful tea! Seriously in contention with my other favourite blacks (Laoshan Black from verdant and Zhen Qu from Butiki). I could not get enough of this this morning…now that it’s gone i just wish there was more. Thankfully I have a bunch to drink through so a new order is not quite yet ready for me and stacy. heh I really need to get through a few more of the tea i recently (and not so recently) purchased from her. but this one…it’s wonderful!
So this tea? It’s pretty delicious, but it’s too sweet for me. It really is like a cup of maple syrup, dilluted down a bit. I also sometimes wish Della Terra would get rid of the colourful candy bits they put into their teas. They often don’t add to the flavour and just mess up my brewing baskets.
If you enjoy maple syrup and sweet teas though, this is a good tea. Just a bit much for me :)
This tea goes by another name now on della terra’s website – orange brulee. THIS is more of what i expected from the orange blossom oolong that i had before this tea. Not a bad little tea. I’ll be reviewing this again though since with the steepster outage i was terrible at taking notes down.
Travelling Tea Box!
This tea wasn’t in the database as near as I can tell so I started a new thread. The company isn’t in here either. So first and first! No steeping instructions on the website so I went for a lower temp and my usual 3 mins.
This is a light tea. There’s a bit of floral notes in this, but nothing overpowering. I don’t totally taste ‘pomegranate’ but there is a fruity taste to this tea. This has a nice light gold colouring to is as well. I’m glad a have a bit more of this to play with later. :)
