63 Tasting Notes
First off, Yay to me for not ruining my entire Della Terra order by ordering all flavored blacks (which I’ve found I don’t like).
Tried this guy out for the first time tonight. And the verdict is YUM! As a green tea and mint fan I was hopeful this would be just what I was looking for. Mint and jasmine are present but not overpowering at all. Just a nice little added note. I can see myself enjoying this one a lot. I expect it will be something I reorder.
Another impulse buy from my trip to AZ.
I wanted to try a honeybush and this one smelled good in the store.
It smells and tastes like (wait for it….) Apricots!
Easy to drink and enjoy, it’s my first foray into the realm of honeybush and I wasn’t disappointed. No need for any additives, it’s good all by itself.
Ok, one of my fellow steepsters reminded me I had this hidden in the back of my tea cupboard (obviously hidden under way too much other tea). Had to dig it out to send her some so figured I’d give it another taste
The smell is 100% mint….it’s pretty overwhelming even to my poor sniffer.
The taste is 100% mint (notice a theme here?). I’m a fan of matcha and a fan of mint, but I think they may have messed up the proportions some with this. It’s pretty overwhelming on the mint part to my tastebuds. Not that that stopped me from drinking it ;)
With great dread I dipped back into my Della Terra order. This order was supposed to expose me to a lot of flavored blacks with the hope of finding something I liked. Thus far it’s been a failure sadly.
Smell? Chocolate and strawberries! It’s smells GOOD! I sorta want to lick the packaging…
Taste? sigh disappointment for this non-black tea guy. The black base still ruins the enjoyment for me. This is not DT’s fault…it’s a “me” thing. I’m finding I just don’t enjoy any black teas or blends. Also the strawberry is extremely strong in my cup. I love strawberry but this might even be too much.
Brought this guy back from a tea shop I visited in Phoenix. Oolongs(and blends) are hit or miss for me.
The smell is addictive. I want to say CANDY! …though it must be some of the flower petals….but it smells like candy.
The taste is really good!!! I love it best hot (as apposed to cooling some). This is definitely on the “hit” list.
