It’s back in my cupboard! Woohoo! So freaking yummy, it’s even good in my travel mug! Today it was especially delicious. Everything was there…the blueberry and the cream cheese pastry flavor. Yum! I have a feeling I should have ordered more than one bag. ;)

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.

First cup of the morning, and this is the second time I’ve tried this one. Wanted to give it a fair chance to impress me. Unfortunately, there’s not really a salted taste to it, and I don’t get enough caramel or toffee flavor. It’s kind of a blah mixture of chocolate and caramel. Oh well, the rest of this sample might need to find a new home.

DianaK was going to give me a sample of this tea, but I just couldn’t wait, so I included it in the try me sampler I got recently. ;) When I was a kid, we used to make monkey bread as a family, rolling the balls of dough in cinnamon and sugar. Delicious! This tea smells exactly like it. I can even smell the butter! The taste, however, is too cinnamon-y and not enough buttery baked goodness. Close, but not perfect. Oh well, I will still enjoy the aroma while drinking the rest of the sample!

drank Ginger Snap by Della Terra Teas

Stephanie gave this to me a long time ago in a swap, and I’m just now trying it, but it is actually delicious! I came home this morning from being out and I was really cold. This was the perfect choice to warm me up! I’m not sure I would call it ginger snap, exactly, but it’s definitely a cozy cup! Thanks, Stephanie!

Let me just start this by saying, I love peanut butter. And peanut butter with chocolate is even better! I finally got around to ordering a try me sampler, and I tried them all today! Ya, 5 cups of black tea in one day! Wheeeeee! Anyway, I really liked this tea. This was probably my favorite of the 5 teas. It has both peanut butter and chocolate notes, but neither overpowers the other. It was a pretty good balance, actually. I also have to confess I don’t much like Della Terra’s chocolate teas; however, mixed with the right stuff (a.k.a. peanut butter…oh, and I also like s’mores), it works! Those that don’t like sprinkles will shun this tea, but if you are going to have a tea that tastes like peanut butter fudge, it’s not like it’s gonna be fancy….bring out the fun! This is definitely a reorder. :)

Ooh, I’m in the same camp. Don’t care for their chocolate teas except S’mores works for me for some reason, so you’ve convinced me to give this one a chance!

Tealizzy

You should! I also tried salted caramel & chocolate and was less enthused, though….gonna give that one another try before posting.

Fjellrev

Have been looking for a good peanut butter tea too. :)

Would you say their Salted Caramel is better or worse than David’s?

Tealizzy

I haven’t tried David’s yet. Will have to!

On the shopping list it goes!

drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA

I really really like this tea! It’s totally a taste of Fall! It makes me think of my yearly trip to Apple Hill, which is coming up soon! In fact, I have plans to go up there the weekend after this coming weekend! Farms with apples, apple pies, and other deliciousness. We are totally getting a whole strip of apple strudel this year! So, this tea is like a guilt-free version of all that! I will definitely be picking up some more!!

CHAroma

It is a good one. Supper yummy! :)

drank Cocoberry by DAVIDsTEA

Coffee and fruit. That is one weird combination! It’s not icky though. Just weird as heck! I can’t say whether I like it. It’s just so weird! Did I say it was weird? ;)

Yum yum yummy vanilla deliciousness! So glad I have a whole tin of this tea now! Although it does look so tiny next to the white teas. White teas are just so dang lightweight! The second steep was just as yummy as the first. Definitely need to remember to steep this one for 4 minutes to get the best flavor and not be afraid that the white tea will get astringent. It’s amazing!

drank Maple Splash by Tealux

This tea smells amazing, but the taste is more subdued. I think I would have liked more of a punch of flavor, especially since the flavor is a nice maple, caramel, popcorn flavor, with a hint of cinnamon. Very cozy, but could use more oomph!

Profile

Bio

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
