I love these little samples from Della Terra. I don’t like buying teas in large amounts since there are SO many varieties of teas out there, I could only drink a few cups of the same tea within a couple of years anyway. It’s really amazing that there are so many tea companies since not everyone drinks tea. I’m also very thankful that not just one or two companies owns the tea market (kind of like brand name soda), so that there are tons of choices out there!

Anyway, this is good! The steep color is an ambery light brown. Not much of a coconut or chocolate flavor…or flavor from the black tea itself. The coconut actually looks like fresher coconut pieces that I usually don’t see in a blend, so I’m not sure if that makes a tea taste like coconut anyway. And there weren’t too many tiny almond pieces in the blend, so the more noticable almond flavor must be from the added flavor and not the almonds themselves. Honestly, I would have prefered the almond be the most present flavor anyway! The second steep I completely forgot about, and steeped if for about a half hour. It wasn’t at all astringent after steeping so long OR when it was cooled.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
