When Della terra announced this tea on Facebook I knew I had to have it immediately. Their pineapple upside down cake is one of my favorite flavored teas so anything else cake-y I had to try. Unfortunately this one just seems like a milder version of cinnamon crackle. I don’t taste any bready/cake-i-ness to it. I even let it cool awhile to see if it would show up. Overall, it’s ok, but I don’t like cinnamon crackle and this has that same candy cinnamon flavor. Kind of disappointed. Glad I got the sampler size. Luckily, there are a few others in the sample pack that smell awesome. Maybe one of those will be the winner.

Oh man, I used to love monkey bread as a kid! Too bad the tea didn’t do it justice.

Bummer! I was thinking about picking that one up, since monkey bread is awesome! What were your steeping parameters?

I love tea. And I love beer. I spent my twenties thoroughly enjoying all that beer has to offer but now that I’m into my thirties and a stay at home mom of 2 little kids and 1 big kid, I spend more time enjoying tea.

I joined steepster in Feb 2013 and it’s crazy how much my tastes have changed since joining. Before, I liked cream and honey in all teas and loved mostly dessert blacks. Now I almost rarely drink them, but enjoy them from time to time. What I love more than anything are straight rich black teas, Fujian, Laoshan, Rizhao, etc… I also love pretty much any black tea that the little leaf hoppers have gotten their teeth on.

I’m still not too into the green/white/oolong varieties. I keep trying to but my tastes are evolving pretty slowly on that front.

Overall, I just enjoy tea. Something about it that just settles me.
