This is my first “dessert tea,” and I love it. The sweet, confectionary flavor is perfect after dinner or when craving a late night snack. A cup of this tea feels so indulgent. The smell is heavenly! I wish there was a hint of pineapple or a bit more fruitiness. In the sample I bought, I taste more caramel than anything. But the flavor is spot on to what the gooey, brown sugar “sauce” on a real pineapple upside-down cake tastes like! And I know a lot about them because I own a bakery. ;P

I feel like I should point out that this tea is heavily artificially flavored. If you’re a tea “purist,” you probably already know to stay away from most dessert teas. If you’re not a fan of artificial flavorings in your cup, this tea is not for you. Personally I don’t mind it, and I would drink this as a dessert any night of the week. :)

I have been back and forth about whether I would like this or not but reviews like yours are definitely making it that much more appealing

I hear you about the artificial flavors, but there are companies that do use natural flavoring or blend with fruit, herbs, spices and various types of tea to create awesome dessert flavors (including pineapple).

I just wanted to let you know how awesome I think you are for having a bakery. What a neat life you must have.

Della Terra does a great job with desserty stuff.

It’s getting to be about time for even non-bakers to put on the aprons and go to it! My daughter is gearing up for the Winter Market which begins this Saturday. With 8 children, Saturday is all she can manage as a business! Her 100 or so loaves of bread and toffee sell out fast! Because of the cold weather (and sometimes snow), the market is in an enclosed space in Old Town that is festive during the coming months. I love vintage towns anyway!

Profile

Bio

My name is Cassie. I’m 27 years old, married to my best friend, and we have 2 cats! I am a professional baker, and I own a bakery with my mom.

I sipped my first cup of “real” loose leaf tea on October 5th, 2013, and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying new flavors, anything and everything to find out what I like. I’m always looking for suggestions… Where to buy, which to try, steeping methods, tea accessories and gadgets, etc. :)

MY TASTE
*I grew up drinking iced tea in the South, so black tea will always have a place in my cupboard.
*I am obsessed with cinnamon! Anything loaded with cinnamon will become a favorite of mine.
*I like fruity teas, especially if they are tart. I love hibiscus and rose hips.
*I also like dark, strong, toasty teas, but preferably nothing smokey.
*I don’t do chamomile. Never. Ever. EW.

I’m open to try anything. Suggestions are welcome. :)

MY RATINGS
[#’s are solely based on personal preference.]
Less than 50 : Pour it down the drain
50-64 : Finish the cup // Never drink it again
65-74 : Not a bad cup // Would not repurchase
75-94 : Quite tasty // Would consider repurchasing
95+ : Delicious // Will never run out <3
