Here’s another sample from the Della Terra dessert sampler pack.

I have to say that this reminds me a lot of the Numi Chocolate pu-erh, which I’ve had before in teabag form. For me personally it’s a bit hard to taste a lot of pu-erh in here, which mostly makes a nice backdrop for the flavorings. I added some soymilk to mine and it reminds me a of a spicy chocolate milk. It doesn’t remind me a LOT of chai per se, but I am picking up a lot on the gentle flavorings of orange, cardamom and cinnamon. Not totally what I was expecting but pretty good. I would like a little ginger, perhaps. I s’pose I could always add some in!

pretty good for a dessert/after lunch tea and I’m listening to this along with Bobby McFerrin this afternoon.

Don’t worry, be happy! (Actually, my favorite album was Medicine Man).

That was my first ever favorite song! I just thought of it the other day but I haven’t heard it in forever.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
