Love this tea! In the interest of getting as much as possible out of the small amount I have left, (my fault for sharing with others, but I love to hear what they think!), I steeped it 3 times this morning. First 2 steepings were awesome. The third steeping was a little weaker, but still enjoyable. Definitely needed a happy and comforting tea like this to help me get through Monday!

A friend of mine gave this to me in what turned out to be my first swap! I was planning just to give her some samples of Della Terra Teas that I love, and she brought me some teas too! Win win! Anyway, I could definitely taste both the ginger and the peach in this tea. Only steeped it 3 minutes because it started to get dark quickly. Overall, it wasn’t bad, but I’m not sure I’m that big on ginger. I think I will try it iced next time, as I think that may improve it.

So, I’m gonna catch up on my backlog of tealogs in a backwards fashion, because I can! Had a pretty crappy day today after a fabulous weekend. Very hard to go back to work after that, on top of the fact that I’m so burnt out at work, I’m toasty! Anyway, my husband’s friend gave me some fabulous dragonwell tea from a tea plantation in China. I wanted to give the company credit, but he couldn’t remember the name of the plantation, even though he went there! It is roasty goodness! I especially like the second steeping, because, I think it’s smoother, and possibly sweeter? Added honey for both steeps. Still getting my palate acquainted with green teas. I like this one a lot, especially as an afternoon tea or to go with a meal. The other bad thing about not knowing the company is that I can’t buy anymore! Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to savor what I have! Thanks Terri, for setting up this “random steepings” tea. I’m glad I can at least write about it!

After waking up with the headache I couldn’t shake last night, I needed a tea I could count on. Something not too sweet, but comforting. I think this tea has become my go to tea on occasions such as this. I just love it!


No idea why I didnt order this one :\


Make sure to put it on your shopping list for next time!

All I wanted to do all day was go home and have a cup of tea with a cupcake! After running errands including stops at seven different places, I finally got my wish. I enjoyed this with a blackberry cupcake :)

My mouth started watering the instant I smelled my steeped cup. I love this combination! Chocolate and licorice goodness! I only have enough left for one more cup now. Must buy more!!


Yep, I love this one!

Chili? Yes, and definitely more today than last time. I wonder if I just ended up getting more chili bits in the amount I steeped this time. Doesn’t matter….it was yummy. I find this one gets better as it cools….not room temperature, but on its way down.

Still getting an overly powerful rum flavor here. Must be the combination of the vanilla, brown sugar, and cinnamon? I know everyone seems to love this one, but I feel like it’s missing the cookie part. Maybe something bread-y or earthy to ground it? I do enjoy it, but to me, it doesn’t taste exactly like a cookie.

Agreed. I was also missing the cookie.

This tea was fantastic this morning! In the past, I thought the banana made it taste less smooth, but I think now, that it may have been how I prepared it. This time I steeped it for less time. I also had to use the microwave at work, so the water probably wasn’t quite at boiling. Maybe banana teas do better at lower temperatures for less time? I’ll have to try this with banana dream pie now. Anyway, I could taste more walnut, and like I said, it was a lot smoother on the tongue. Went great with my maple nut oatmeal! It was super foggy this morning and this tea made me feel so cozy!

drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas

After I steeped this, you could smell its deliciousness far outside my work cubicle. Hope I didn’t bother anyone, but really, who wouldn’t like the smell of s’mores?! I think it fares better steeped properly at home though (sans microwave), because the flavor didn’t seem as strong this time. Still fantastic!

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!
