I enjoy Della Terra’s vanilla mint blends, and this one is no exception. It’s a nice and soft combination. Neither the mint nor the vanilla are in your face, but they are present in every sip and well supported by the black tea base. I will admit that the popcorn in the tea throws me off just because it does nothing for the tea. Every time I see it I think of Genmaicha, so this tea messes with my head.

Yeah, vanilla mint genmaicha was what I thought when I first saw this. But glad to hear it’s better than it sounds.

This is almost identical to their Candy Cane from last year (which I loved!). I do think I’m going to start picking the popcorn out before I steep my tea. It’s just… strange.

Fjellrev

Yeah, I don’t get it? Like ok, I know some people string popcorn around the tea but still.

Bio

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
