Wow! Tart! Good! I think I would like this iced, blended with a nice strong green tea. As it cooled the flavor became fuller.

Just realized I still had some of this sitting in the back of my tea stash. Glad I saw it this afternoon, as it seems to be just what I wanted. The marshmallow/caramel combo was really warming, and especially nice after shoveling snow. Nice, creamy, and delicious. Like hot coco, only better (not a huge chocolate fan, here. I know – gasp)!

First try with Hearts and Roses. I opened the packet, and it smelled strongly of chocolate, and the sweetness from the roses and candy hearts was noticeable. Once the water was poured on, the almost sickly sweet smell of roses emanated up from the cup as the sweet candies started to dissolve.
The first taste was of cheap chocolate with perfumey rose. Sugar makes both flavors stronger. This is not a keeper for me.

This is my first Pur-eh tea, and I am impressed. Just sweet enough, just savory enough, and with an absolutely AMAZING smell that reminds me of chocolate covered strawberries or cherries. I am in love. It might be one I get more of just because its brilliant.

First to review?!

This tea smelled pretty delicious in the infuser both before and after adding water. Sweet, vanilla-y mint. Yum! Much like Santa’s Secret from DavidsTea, if my memory serves.

I think the flavour is much the same as well, although I’m definitely feeling that there’s more vanilla in here… which for me, is a good thing! Overall, quite a tasty tea! Not sure why it’s anti v-day though, haha.

ETA: Second infusion is surprisingly tasty! Still vanilla mint, and strong enough to be quite enjoyable. HOWEVER, there is a strange sour note poking out here… I’m not sure if it’s my tastebuds, oversteeping, or what exactly, but I might just leave the rest of this cup until morning…

drank Caramel Creme by Della Terra Teas

Yum! This one’s pretty tasty, but very basic. Just a black tea with caramel. Much like Weeping Angel, actually, but the base is definitely more resistant to turning bitter, and the caramelly flavour is not as pronounced. This would be good in the travel mug in the morning, but as I only have a sample, that may only happen once :)

Thank you again to T.C. for this sample! The flavors are pretty balanced between the chocolate and strawberry. That said, this one was just alright. I think if it had a more pronounced chocolate flavor, I would have enjoyed this more. It was nice to try, but I don’t think I’ll be buying this one.

Thank you KittyLovesTea for yet another awesome tea sample :)

The smell for this one is a little bizarre. There’s chocolate in the scent somewhere though.

Perhaps chocolate teas just aren’t for me. This one is well done, but it’s not my favourite by any means. I’m really enjoying the white tea base but not so much the chocolate.

The smell of this one drying is reminding me of Davids Glitter & Gold. Yum.

Getting a bit more “cookie” in the aftertaste but the cinnamon may be a bit overpowering in this one. Very tasty, just not exactly oatmeal raisin. A great black tea overall.

Thanks KittyLovesTea!

In my travel mug today! My stomach has been a bit blah today with cramps, and this is helping a lot! Also only steeped 5 mins and this is holding up well in the mug :) tgif! Hoping to get all my school done today and tomorrow so I can actually do something for my bday Saturday night. See previous notes on this tea :)

First cup of the morning. I spent way too long looking at my stash this morning. Everything sounded good and nothing sounded good. That ever happen to you? Well, this one eventually won out, and I must say it was a thoroughly enjoyable cup. I’m very careful to not let this one oversteep because I think the marshmallow and caramel are at their best with a three and a half minute steep. Absolutely delicious!

KeenTeaThyme

That was me this morning too! I “settled” for Carrot Cake Oolong (David’s Tea), but I know exactly what you mean. And I know I will be feeling it again at the end of this cuppa.

When this happens with my music I just hit random. I never know what’s coming and if I don’t like it another is coming in 3 or 4 minutes (or 12 – Freebird!). There needs to be a random button on the tea stash.

Kamyria

That’s usually me in the afternoons… I worry what’s going to happen when my stash grows bigger.. lol

Veronica

@KS – I love the idea of a random button on my tea stash! That wouldn’t just solve my problem, but it would be a lot of fun. :) Also, I keep my playlist on random mostof the time. I find it keeps me from zoning out when I have a big project to finish or need to get housework done. Aerosmith followed by Beethoven is amazing.

Veronica

@KeenTeaThyme – Getting that feeling at the end of a cup… gah… I hate that. The only thing worse is craving a tea I finished the week before. :)

drank Snow Fairy by Della Terra Teas

So, after reading the reviews here I definitly had high hopes for this tea. Made myself a cup, and at first the aroma was amazing. It smelled like vanilla spice and I was excited. Letting it cool down to the point where it was drinkable was a mistake. The scent turned into nothing but pepper corn, and not in a remotely good way. I felt like I’d be drinking broth instead of tea, and it made it immesely hard to drink. When I finally got a few gulps down, it wasn’t terrible, but it took a good amount of honey to make it drinkable. I may give it another chance with some cream in it to see if its better that way, but I won’t be paying for it again. Glad I only got the sample of this one.

The smell of this tea made me want to skip the steep and just eat it!! But I controlled myself and waited the five minutes to drink it. At first it was to hot to really taste anything But after a few minutes of cooling owww the yummy goodness!! I added just a touch of sweetener – perfect!

Every holloween I cant wait to get a bag of flavored tootsie rolls just so I can pick out all the lime ones!!! This tea taste exactly like my favorite tootsie roll, I cant get enough. A must have! Half way through I added a little sweetener, nope it didn’t need it.

On the first steep in my French press, the white chocolate was truely there. On a second steep in the same French press, less chocolate and more bitter. I definitly enjoyed the first steep though, so I’m going to see what I can do to make it more resteepable. I love the scent. Its brilliant!

This tea is such a comfort after a busy week. I love how smooth and vanilla-caramely it is. A delicious dessert before bed. An early bedtime is called for this evening.

Thank you T.C. for this sample! I was not sure about this tea when I first made it, but it grew on me. It is definitely a marshmallow tea! I was hoping to taste some of the caramel notes, but I couldn’t. I made mine with a little sweetener and cream. Overall, it is pretty good and I may consider purchasing this one in the future!

I only have a small sample of this one so it’s hard to smell the tea leaves. They smell faintly of buttercream frosting, and the tiny sprinkles and marshmallows are so cute! The tea itself smells like marshmallows, with a faint hint of burnt sugar. It tastes pretty much the same, and though I like marshmallows, I didn’t like my first sip of this tea. It was cloyingly sweet, and yet it didn’t really taste like sugar. After letting it cool for a few minutes the flavor seems to change, bringing in the caramel and burnt sugar to give it more depth. I definitely enjoyed that quite a bit more than the first sip, but probably not enough to buy more.

Thanks to Jackie T for this sample!

Thanks to Dinosara again for swap!
This is another tea that made me wonder why della named it apple&herb. When I opened it, I mostly smelled spices, barely any apple. Even looking at the blending, it made me wonder if this is blending for chai. In fact when I brewed it it smelled and tasted like mild chai. I liked it, but just feel like name would be misleading for buyers?

Sil

I just want Della Terra to stop remaning things lol makes it confusing when trying to repurchase or log :)

Thanks to Dinosara for swapping the tea :) I tried this tea after Apple & Herb, up on request of my mother. (I will post review for apple & Herb soon) When I smelled it, it kinda felt like apple pie rather than nut&honey which surprised me. In fact it reminded me of gwendalina’s baked apple from Tea Gschwendner, which got me excited. However when I tried it, despite of wonderful fragrance, it did not have sweetness of gwendalina’s baked apple. It was mild, typical rooibos flavor. When I brewed it it had a golden color, which was pretty :) but with rooibos I usually see more red color so perhaps I put too much water? It was still good tea, just not sure if I like it enough to place an order for it. (and I wonder why they named it nut&honey crunch when it was more like.. baked apple.)

Thanks to KittyLovesTea for this one – and so many others I can’t wait to try!

I’m personally not a fan of eggnog, but perhaps I will like eggnog flavoured tea :) It does smell like eggnog. Like spicy eggnog. That must be the cinnamon.

Well it has that bizarre “medicinal” rooibos taste I can’t shake, but the aftertaste is quite nice. It’s reminding me of something I can’t quite put my finger on…

I’m still stuck on that ‘medicinal’ taste, too. Sigh. I want to like rooibos, because I need caffeine-free evening teas! And I am also not a fan of eggnog.

Courtney

I know what you mean. I really love my herbals and greens for the evenings. Toasted Walnut, Hot Lips (though I’m wary too much of this one will wear it out for me so I’m careful), Genmaicha, Luscious Watermelon, Mulberry Magic, and Forever Nuts (similar to Hot Lips I’m careful with this one – too much can be a bad thing) – these are all great for the evening – I definitely recommend :)

Courtney

And Lime Gelato! That is one of my all-time favs.

jessiwrites

Excellent! I just ordered Lime Gelato, Hot Lips and Forever Nuts, and I do enjoy Toasted Walnut quite a bit. I also ordered Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, which sounded lovely. Genmaicha is super tempting, I am definitely considering getting some on my next order.

Courtney

Genmaicha wasn’t one I was expecting to like and even after so many cups of it I can’t tell you what it is I like about it haha! Maybe that it’s just a nice simple tea. Good choices for sure :)

jessiwrites

Thanks! The others on my order are Ceylon Star, Merry Cranberry, and Cookie Dough. It just shipped today, and it`s supposed to arrive on the 14th. Happy Valentine`s Day to me!

Courtney

Hahah I enjoyed both Merry Cranberry and Cookie Dough. Enjoy!

Gawwwwwd this one smelled AMAZING when I opened the pouch up.

The dry leaf is just too cute.

This mostly tastes like caramel marshmallows to me, more so than Eight Candles. I didn’t get much chocolate. It’s a very, very sweet tea, so I don’t see any need to ever add sugar, but I might try it with a little milk sometime.
