Drinking my last cup. It’s grown on me — I may have to get some more now.

Nice, grassy/earthy flavor. It’s got a little smokiness, but very mildly so. I like it better than the tuo cha.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 1 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML

drank Cinnamon Bun by Della Terra

It tastes kind of like a cinnamon bun, but isn’t really what I was hoping for. I felt so uninterested in brewing another cup that I ended up giving away the rest of the bag at work.

I like mate, but the orange flavoring is just weird. Not my cup of tea.

Just received a bag of this from Della Terra, chosen mostly because it was on sale and it sounded interesting. The peppermint is not as strong as I feared, and it’s actually a bit weak for my taste, possibly due to the mellowing effect of the vanilla. Pleasant and not overpowering, with the good black tea base I’ve come to expect from this tea blender.

Pleasantly spiced with a mild chocolate edge. I agree with other comments about the sweetness — I’d rather not have it at all if stevia or other non-sugars are used.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cocoa

Sipping my last mug of this tea. I’ve enjoyed drinking it this week. The flavor is very subtle, but pleasant.

I put off trying this in the LoTR pack, mostly because I’m burnt out on apple/cinnamon combinations. However, this is delightful and I’m glad I have the rest of the tin to sip on. Clove takes the front seat, and clove is one of my favorite spices. Easy to drink straight up, which is my preference in tea.

Flavors: Cardamon, Clove

Light, earthy/grassy flavors, even after a long steep. I love this tea plain. It’s not bitter or acidic and satisfies that craving for warm and savory.

Flavors: Earth, Grass

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Also, I really shouldn’t drink more than a cup or two at work if I want to have any sort of focus.

The flavor is very subtle. I’m getting some blueberry if I think about it. The tea is not bitter at all, with a creamy texture that definitely lends to the scone description. A nice cuppa on a grey day.

Bio

I’m a coffee drinker who appreciates tea, but until my sister got into it, I mainly drank a few flavored bagged teas (and of course, Southern sweet iced tea). I pull out the Throat Coat and Breathe Easy when I’m sick, but aside from that, teas have never been a daily part of my life. However, my sister has exposed me to a broader range of flavors, and to loose teas, so I’m now enjoying tea more often.
