Thanks so much to Azzrian for sharing this tea with me !

This is my first Della Terras tea and I was very excited to taste it especially because I fell in love with the name of the tea.
… but unfortunately not with the tea itself.

The blend is so beautiful with a lot of multicolored little candies (stars of David and little golden balls).

I found the tea base too light for my taste. The aromas of marshmallows was overpowering to me as well (but after all it is supposed to be a marshmallow tea ! – but I was expecting something with a much more pronounced caramel flavour).

I think this tea delivers its promises to be a marshmallow tea – I have enough blend to do a second big mug of Eight Candles tea and sure I will give it another try.

Preparation

Try steeping just a bit less time and see if that helps perhaps :)

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
