The dry leaves are an interesting blend of teas and fruits. The scent was good: nice raspberry and chocolate. The taste did not completely follow through. Would have loved a bit more chocolate flavor. The raspberry was good but missing the chocolate made it more of a white/green raspberry tea. Still not bad. I have more to drink so many I’ll pick up more flavors on re-tries.
I rediscovered this tea recently when I reorganized my tea cabinet. I remember this one as being good, with a distinct creaminess at the end of the sip. It’s still good. Della Terra knows how to flavor rooibos and they got the vanilla cream flavor right. I feel like some companies’ rooibos teas are overwhelmed by the rooibos flavor, but not Della Terra. Don’t get me wrong…the rooibos flavor is there, but you still get to enjoy the other added flavorings. Overall, this is a nice, creamy, caffeine free, cozy cup!
Bought this in…Someone’s stash sale. xD Blanking out on the username-haha!
DTT tends to make pretty good chocolate teas in my book, so I figured I’d give this one a shot!
Wasn’t sure if I’d like this since I haven’t seemed to like mint teas lately. But this one is actually pretty good! The mint doesn’t outweigh the chocolate too much.
But I think the best mint tea that I’ve tried so far is DavidsTea’s Read My Lips. This one is good, but wouldn’t buy more!
Flavors: Chocolate, Mint

Something about this tea is off. There’s a strange plastic-y feeling on my tongue, and I feel like I squirted perfume in my mouth. I don’t know if the flavoring agent is going bad or if this tea and I just don’t get along, but the rest of this cup is going down the drain.
I haven’t had many Rooibos teas, but I really like the flavor of this one. The aroma right out of the package brought autumn right to my kitchen and it only got better when I started steeping it. The warm, rich scent of maple is the dominant aroma. The flavor is that of maple and spice. I think I’ll add a bit of sugar or honey just to bring out the autumn flavors a bit more but otherwise this tea is great just on its own. This tea definitely put me in the mood for crisp weather, football, and long-sleeves!
Flavors: Maple, Spices
Yes, I still have some of this. Who knows how long it’s been since I last ordered from Della Terra…it’s been awhile! I’m pining for Fall today, so I broke this one out of my nicely organized cupboard. It’s sweet and cake-like. I ate it with a cookie! ;) I got my TeaTime mag in the mail, but the front cover got all crushed and torn. What the heck?! Makes me sad, because it’s an issue all about Fall! :( I love Fall. It’s still hot here, but I’m counting down the days until I can drink some new Fall teas and go buy apple goodies at Apple Hill! It’ll be here soon!!!
Ost was kind enough to include a sample of this in the package with my stash sale purchases, thanks dear! I do love me some blueberries. The sample was 2 teaspoons and Della Terra’s website recommended 1 teaspoon for 6 ounces, so I decided to just use the whole thing for my 8 ounce cup. In my experience, Della Terra’s teas need to be overleafed anyway to be strong enough.
This is a perfectly nice flavored tea. It’s mostly pastry and cinnamon to me, with hardly any blueberry. It sort of reminds me of cinnamon rolls with sugar glaze over the top and maybe a couple of blueberries sprinkled over. I don’t think I would order this, it’s a bit too artificial for me. It is quite tasty, but not enough blueberry!
Flavors: Blueberry, Cinnamon, Pastries, Sugar
They should have just called this Chocolate Marshmallow or something similar, because that’s all it really tastes like. It strikes me more as what Count Chocula would be like as a tea than anything. At least I’ve ironed out that plastic nastiness.
I’ve had better chocolate teas. I’ll finish off the 2 oz. bag I have, and that’s it. Not worth the price.
This was a bit of an impulse buy, since the idea of a S’mores-flavored tea was something that piqued my curiosity. The dry mix smells more like a chocolate breakfast cereal to me than a s’more. Then again, a lot of chocolate-based teas do.
Flavor-wise, it’s more like a weak hot chocolate than anything. It’s alright, but not something that’d make me immediately think of s’mores. There is, however, a faint taste there that I don’t like. Plasticy? Burnt? I don’t know, but it distracts a bit from the marshmallow and chocolate. Milk made it taste like the milk from a bowl of chocolate cereal, only warm.
I don’t think I’ll try resteeping. I doubt that after all the melty bits have dissolved it’ll really turn out well. Probably won’t restock it as it didn’t really impress me.
The last time I tried this tea I remember it being far from perfect. The malt tones from the black base were too strong for the pear and at times it got lost in translation. Today I am trying to use up teas from my cupboard and this one is what I have at the moment, remember what it was like last time I decided to put lashings of honey into this batch. It’s made all the difference. Now the pear comes through much stronger and the malt and smoke is left as a gentle after taste, the honey is noticeable but paired with the pear it’s like a sweet/candy but in a nice way. Last time I said it was mild but the honey brings out the sweetness of the pear and gives it a juicy quality. I love biting into a large, ripe pear for the juice to dribble down my chin, this tea reminds me of that. So since honey makes all the difference I will increase my rating a little.
Wowsers…this smells like sweet, juicy pear. It’s like pear gummy sweets (if such a thing exists), very pleasant and tantalizing. I had a different pear tea yesterday so I will have some means for comparison. The blend is very dark and mostly black leaf but it’s perfumed strongly and was a very pleasant surprise.
The steeped colour is golden red and it has a light pear and thick malt scent with a hint of smoke. The black base has now dominated the divine pear scent. I think this base would suit better if I add sugar to it, however for the first cup I will try it without.
Well it at least tastes lighter than it’s rich black base scent. I can taste gentle pear with a touch of sweetness which is quickly met with a slight bitterness from the black tea and a hint of malt before the after taste takes us back to the pear which lightens yet lingers on the tongue. It’s like I’ve had a pear drop hard boiled sweet and taken a sip of standard bagged tea. Not the nicest but at the same time it’s drinkable and makes a change. Compared to the pear tea I had yesterday this one is very disappointing.
I will try it with sugar next time and see if that improves the flavours.
Flavors: Malt, Pear, Smoke
Wow!! how much time since i was here? 2 years i think that was sure a long hiatus but i’m back in the tea world with this one as the first one i was looking Through my stash and find this one unopened . Mostly smell of chocolate and maybe a little orange. Made my first cup with just a little brown sugar became instant favorite just the perfect balance of semi-sweet chocolate and pu-erh it’s a shame all i have was a sample will surely order more .

I know that most people don’t like the added flavors but I am enjoying the fullness of the cup. The raspberry and chocolate are definitely the major taste and aroma with the black base pulling it all together. I’m quite enjoying the tea.
My little activity monitor isn’t working quite right this morning and did not measure my 2 mile walk :( I’ll never reach my goal unless I adjust it somehow. I always feel like I’m cheating if I adjust it. I have to lose the weight I put on while visiting my mother in Florida. I swear all we did was eat! I seem to have gained about 3 pounds. I’m losing some of it but it’s hard. So many tempting foods. At least I have all my lovely teas as a substitute, :)
Flavors: Chocolate, Raspberry
Got this from whatshesaid’s stash sale. (: Couldn’t resist
This is so ridiculously chocolate-y and caramel-y. Ugh the perfect chocolate combo. It’s pretty strong, but not too much. Though it does leave that weird aftertaste in your mouth that all chocolate teas do. That’s probably my only dislike of this tea. But it seems like a pretty universal thing for all chocolate tea. I enjoyed this. ^^
Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Marshmallow
Not my favorite. It’s a roastier oolong, so it can tend to get bitter. Also, it doesn’t have the creamy texture that many oolongs do (especially the greener ones). I signficantly preferred Davidstea Long Life Oolong. Too bad I bought a 2oz pouch of this one. If only it were green! …. sigh
Maybe I’ll try mixing it with a greener oolong and see if that helps.
