Yes. Yes I did get a pick-your-own sample pack from Della Terra. S’mores is my second foray into the delectably scented teas made by DT, and I will admit it was fairly good. I used two level teaspoons for 12 oz. of water, and steeped for 3 minutes. I added a heaping teaspoon of raw sugar.
The tea had a nice subtle flavor of chocolate and marshmallows, and overall, it was tasty. I don’t feel like I got any graham-cracker essence in this steep. Perhaps this will be a little more flavorful with a full, rolling, boil and a little longer steep. Experimentation time!

Bio

First and foremost, I’m a Mommy to my one-and-only daughter. After that, I’m a full-time student-nurse working on degree number two. Then, I’m a wife, a voracious reader, and a newly minted lover of loose-tea.

All my life I’ve enjoyed herbal teas, but am ready and willing to explore other flavors and concepts.

Being a full-time mom and student, the ritual of brewing and enjoying the subtlety of tea is extremely appealing.

I tend to like strong teas: original chais (not boring “masala chai”) are a big deal for me, and I’m hunting for new ones that can accompany my breakfast. I love EGs, especially EGCs, and I hope to find the perfect one some day. Not a huge fan of tisanes or overly fruity teas. I’m starting to love greens and whites, but only if they’re generous enough in the flavor department: no wimps. I’ve got to say, though, I really do not understand pu-erh (yet?).

Outta the park: delicious, amazing, a cupboard staple.

Good tea: not a staple, but would brew and/or buy again if in the mood.

Fair to good: nothing wrong with the tea, but not particularly interesting or not flavored highly enough.

25-49
Not good: can probably finish the cup, but may not brew again.
