3688 Tasting Notes
so this one’s not too bad. I’m pretty sure it’s the chocolate factor with Della Terra that throws me off. Still, not too shabby a tea if you’re looking for a good time ha! sorry..for something a little fun and different. Totally not an every day tea though. :)
So with my samples I may be able to figure out what sort of Della Terra Teas i’m less a fan of. In this case I’m beginning to think it’s the chocolate teas. This tea smells AMAAAAZING. It’s exactly like a chocolate orange chocolate. However, after brewing it and tasting it..it’s a chocolate tea…with a hint of orange spice at the end of it. I’ve got more of this sample left to try so we’ll see if i can figure out how to improve on the brewing paramters.
This is a fantastic caramel marshmallow tea! Now, marshmallow tea isn’t something I’d always want, but as a dessert tea this is pretty delicious. It’s also renewed my hope in Della Terra – in that they’ve modified their teas since I first tried them. The aroma of this tea is straight up marshmallow deliciousness. Drinking it…you get marshmallow goodness followed by the sweet caramel. Mmmmm this is pretty spiffy!
mmmm so good. Having a rough start this morning so I wanted something that was both tasty and delicious and strong enough to get my going. I pulled this out of my “not yet opened” pile so that I could enjoy it this morning. Still trying to figure out what i’m purchasing in terms of teas over the weekend and I can’t yet justify picking up another order from stacy with all the tea that I have from her that’s not yet opened…lol SO i’m opening more! hah
This is maltly, chocolaty almost sweet, bold goodness.
So the downside to the way i make smoothies is that I don’t really have any sort of accurate tracking on when i’m using my matcha since i have a tendency to make 1 dominant flavour but then i add bits and pieces of other flavours to enhance it. Today it was a coffee matcha smoothie…but i added a bit of french vanilla and some chocolate. i’m pretty exhausted today so i was hoping that would help.
TRAVELLING TEA BOX!
Yeah so this might be the first early grey that I’ve ever had a cup of. Horrible I know, but keep that in mind :) This is technically the bagged version, but I’ll forgive it that. As a way of sampling a brand new tea, it’s not bad.
So earl grey….I haven’t had much experience with bergamot, so i’m assuming that’s what i’m tasting…but i can’t be certain. i think i can get behind this tea, but it wouldn’t be an every day tea. There’s a citrus zingy kinda of happening in this tea that confuses my mouth. It means i’ll need to try a few more earl grey’s as well just to see where i land on the whole EG thing…but this isn’t too shabby. This particular tea is really smooth though.
yeah… i think my train of thought just derailed…
