The first of my Della Terra orders arrived yesterday. While most of the teas will be Christmas gifts I thought I’d open this one to share with my daughter since it’s one of her favorites.
Well, I have to say we were both disappointed. The tea has little to no flavor. The smell is there while it’s steeping, but there’s only a vague hint of spice and cookie in the infusion. If I had been drinking this by myself I would have chalked it up to being sick, but my daughter’s face fell after the second sip. She let the tea cool some, and it was no better. One of the main reasons she and I love Della Terra is that their flavored teas a full of flavor, so this was a bummer.
I’m hoping this was a fluke and that the rest of the bag will be the awesomeness we’ve come to love from Della Terra.
