drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas
52 tasting notes

OK, so I was apparently being overgenerous when I first rated this tea. There are so many other teas with flavored elements that are better than this. It manages to just taste like black tea, with maybe a little chocolate in it. No noticeable sweetness from the marshmallows, and I can’t taste any graham cracker. I don’t see a point in trying this one again.

It’s funny, when I tried this the first time I felt the same way that your did (little/no flavor and basically a black tea). But I’m drinking it right now, and I’m getting the s’mores taste much more. I think it may depend on the mixture that happens to get scooped out. I personally like a tea that gives more consistent brews so it’s not an absolute love for me either.

That’s something that I’ve wondered. Perhaps I’m just getting sample that were from the “bottom of the barrel?” It’s frustrating seeing all the great reviews of the Della Terra teas and just not having good experiences with them, especially as someone newer to the scene. I’d be happy to give another go, but I’m wary of buying more…!

I totally agree. I find it difficult to give a tea that dissapointed me another chance, especially with so many other great tea options out there. It’s always possible that it’s just not for you – everyone has different tastes.

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?).

80-100
Outta the park: delicious, amazing, a cupboard staple.

65-79
Good tea: not a staple, but would brew and/or buy again if in the mood.

50-64
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.

0-24
Down the drain.
