I can’t believe I’m the first to review this Harvest Tea by Della Terra. No takers? I have to admit, at first, I wasn’t blown away by this one. I had a second cup this morning, and although I still wasn’t blown away, it’s kinda growing on me. It’s not one of those in your face flavored teas. It’s much more subtle. I don’t get a ton of apple, but there’s a little there. The molasses comes through as sort of a well-rounded sweetness…like a hug of sweetness, not a punch. It definitely tastes of Fall, and it’s very cozy. Simple, but nice.

Sounds lovely and autumnal. Took me a long time to discover molasses as a tea additive.

Hmmm….sounds interesting. Never thought of molasses mixed with tea.

I’ve been adding brown sugar to teas occasionally…never thought to skip directly to adding molasses to it! Might complement some things real nicely.

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! :)
