Backlogging from yesterday.

My Della Terra Teas have been sitting in my cupboard for months now getting little to no use. I decided to play around with this one a little and see if I could find the water temp and amount of leaf that would allow me to really enjoy this again. At the very least I wanted to find a decent water/leaf balance so I could start working on drinking this down.

I’m happy to report that two teaspoons of dry leaves for an 8 oz. cup and 200° F water made for a very decent cup. It was close to what I remember this tea being a couple of years ago when it was first introduced. I had a very nice dessert tea full of caramel marshmallow sweetness. The base tea was hard to taste, but, being that this is a flavored dessert tea, that didn’t bother me.

Yay for finding a happy spot!

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.
