Last year during the Midwest Tea Festival I stumbled across one of the Kansas City area’s best kept secrets: Anna Marie’s Tea Shop. The shop is nestled away in Liberty, Missouri—a small suburb of Kansas City—and carries a wide variety of flavored teas. Flavored teas aren’t always enough to make me sit up and take notice of a new-to-me shop, but I had the opportunity to sample a number of their offerings and was immediately struck by how similar they tasted to the teas that were offered by Della Terra before they went out of business almost two years ago. If you’ve been looking for a company to fill the void that Della Terra left behind then you’ll want to check this shop out immediately, especially if you’re missing old favorites like Lemon Chiffon or Pineapple Upside Down Cake Black Tea. Anna Marie’s even offers sample sizes for those of you who are like me and must try all of the teas.

Here’s Hoping Traveling Teabox – Round #5 – Tea #52
Whoa this is one of the sweetest teas ever. The perfect dessert sip! Sadly, it’s the last of it. I love the sprinkles in it and if it wasn’t the last of the sample, there probably would have been other tasty ingredients to make it an even better cup. Otherwise, it’s a cup of cakey maple sweetness. I wouldn’t call the flavor chocolate… but I can’t figure out red velvet cake anyway. I wish there was some beetroot added, so it would turn the cup even more red than just the rooibos. I have a feeling this is the one Della Terra once sold? (Never tried it.) Which means the East Indies Company has it. I wouldn’t mind having this one in stock!
I bought this tea from Anna Marie’s Tea at the Midwest Tea Fest as something to fill the void from Della Terra’s Lemon/Lime Chiffon. The loose tea smelled amazing, though the vendor’s representative was very lacking in knowledge.. I asked him about the tea and he just read the ingredient label, taking care to point out “honeybush” as a cool ingredient… sigh
As a red rooibos tea, this is pretty good. The lemon flavor isn’t as distinctive in the taste as it is in the scent. I brewed this tea at starbucks. Note to self: you can get free hot water in any size cup from starbucks and make your own tea if you have a filter/tea with you ;)
If we ever cross paths I would like an explanation of how this is your favorite. I’ll admit that it taste decent, but as far as ‘premium oolong’ as the package says it does not measure up to what I would say is premium. As for the hazelnut, I don’t think I was able to pick up it’s flavor in this tea- however, Anna tea shop has only been amazing so I will give you a try again in the future.
Who puts pineapple, mango, and papaya in a gingersnap cookie tea?
That’s what I questioned but I still bought it… GREAT CHOICE!
This is a wonderful blend of nuts, fruit, and rooibos to create a warm toasty nut flavored tea that is very comforting. The smell of walnuts and rooibos are the two stronger scents from what I picked up and that aroma added great pleasure to just smell before I drank it. The ratio of this tea is wonderful as well as there is not a a large amount of rooibos to take away from all the other flavors that brew out of this tea. If you want more spice add some of their Gingerbread House tea and you will be one happy person :)
Hands down the best smelling tea I have ever had. The taste is a nice rooibos taste with chocolate notes that compliment every aspect. The smell contributes much of the taste of this tea and I am completely okay with that. This is a hot tea only though and of course a desert tea. I have used this at many tea parties to end sweetly with only compliments.
The Masala Chai has a robust taste by itself, however i often blend it with Snow Flake teas to give it more of a dessert flavor. This tea has plenty of caffeine to give you a good start to the day.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Cloves, Vanilla
A strong and hearty black breakfast tea. No frills or whistles, smooth, no bitterness. I drank with a little sugar but it’s fine without, haven’t tried with milk. Stout and a good go to for the morning. Leaves a nice silkiness behind in the mouth.
With all the after-holiday coughs and sniffles, I reached for this one hoping for strong antioxidant qualities. I often have a problem with the color of white tea since I like to sample the tea with my eyes first then taste. While the color is light, both color and taste are very rich in this blend so but I enjoyed it. This was a sample but I think that I am going to add this to my shopping list.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I just must not like Ginger Black tea. To me, it has an almost Licorice taste. If it’s not twizzlers from a bag, I don’t like licorice, eck. Perhaps this is how it’s supposed to taste as Ginger and black, I don’t know. It wasn’t horrible and I could drink it, but it’s certainly not “my cup of tea.” I did love my Ginger lemon green tea from Coffee shop of horrors but with green tea perhaps it’s different. This is the second time I’ve gotten this taste, with two different teas, so can only assume it’s from when a decent amount of Ginger is used.
A soft, light, but tasteful black tea. The background flavours blend well and subtly to create a soothing, smooth, almost creamy black tea. Have had it twice now. The first time I think the flavours came through better, may have not steeped enough the second time. Not bitter at all and mild, soothing, calm black tea.
I enjoyed this while at lunch with girlfriends at a nice tearoom Sugarplums and Tea. We had great food and tea! A lovely time!
This tea was greatly flavored strawberry and I also got the cream part while using a nice light green tea base. Super yummy, refreshing and relaxing! We each had our own pot of different tea but I think everyone purchased some of this one loose to take home. We all loved it!
After posting on the discussion board about my son eating this tea, I raced into the kitchen to fix a pot of this. We usually drink this in the summer as ice tea but it is fun to switch around sometimes. With so much cold weather, we’ve been drinking a great deal of hot cider so this was a nice change.
On a side note – I love it when a tea becomes more than simply a beverage. Fixing this always floods me with fond memories of my grandfather. The strong aroma when you open the tin reminds me of his pipe tobacco which must have been fruit flavored.
With a name like Russian Black, I expected a smoky flavor but got quite a surprise. This is a sweet fruity blend. According to the description, this is a popular blend created for one of their tea parties. You can easily taste the strawberries and raspberries. I definitely will be picking up more of this so that we can try it as ice tea next time.
