Drinking my last cup of this and I’m a little sad to see it go. I was pretty blown away by this tea when I first got it. It’s got such a great cake flavor. I do get the hint of pineapple that others find lacking, which makes this a great “tea copy” of the real thing. I feel like I’ve grown away from these super sweet dessert teas to more natural flavored ones, but occasionally, it’s nice to go back. This tea also has the most penetrating aroma ever, and in a good way! Maybe Della Terra should get into the candle business!

Overall, I’m not positive that I will buy more of this, mostly because there are so many teas out there to try, and I’m only one person! Ha! The other reason is that I really like this tea, but it doesn’t blow me away anymore. It sure is interesting to see how our taste buds evolve.

I’ve always liked Della Terra “dessert-y” teas. They doo a good job of replicating the real thing.

I really enjoy this as a “drink” but i can’t taste any actual tea flavor. But I really do like this as a sweet treat in the afternoon.

Ya, you’re right. The cakey flavor overpowers the tea flavor.

Definitely no tea flavour!

Della Terra Teas

Profile

Bio

I thought my profile needed a facelift, so here we go:

My obsession with tea really started around October 2012 when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed going out to afternoon tea with my mom. I was really into An Afternoon to Remember’s creme brulee tea, since they had an afternoon tea place at that time, which has since closed…so sad and I haven’t found a good replacement.

So, I kinda went nuts when I discovered both DavidsTea and Lupicia in the SF mall, and I still frequent them, though my tastes have substantially changed over time from wanting to try all the teas to being a bit more particular.

Once I discovered steepster, literally by looking up reviews of a DavidsTea tea, I was hooked! So many tea companies I never heard of and everything sounding so delicious!

I found I still love dessert teas, like flavored black teas, but I also really enjoy oolong (both green and roasted). I occasionally enjoy flavored rooibos and white teas. I’ve had a rough time with puerh, and still think it tastes like leather. Recently, after having some really amazing teas from Teavivre, I can now say I love unflavored Chinese black teas and green teas.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Teavivre, Golden Moon, Butiki, Lupicia, and DavidsTea.

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
