The chocolate barely came through but I think this was by design. As others have said, this seems to have more green tea which I am okay with. I enjoy apple teas very much, but enjoy others far more.

Thanks Sil and Kittenna for this sample!! I really enjoyed the cup. Seriously.
A little bit of caramel, but mostly orange. Like marmalade. Very rindy and sweet, sans sugar!
I’ve had an orange kind of day. We made a cake for Mums bday… and she loves marmalade so it was an eggless, orange infused cake with marmalade/vodka glaze. Looks purty but we haven’t tried it yet. Fingers crossed that I didn’t mess it up!!
Anyhow, I am seriously considering getting more of this one :D

Kittenna

This one was just from Sil :) I royally messed up my first cup of it (and wasted like half the packet in doing so), so I wouldn’t have had enough to share, haha.

Indigobloom

Ah you’re right!! I couldn’t remember who gave it to me, and I just realized that’s cuz it was in the big bag of stuffs I got that was prepared when I arrived

Kittenna

Ahh yes :) We thought we’d be efficient!

Indigobloom

Good idea!! Our Kally and S&V order would’ve taken forever to sort

This is delicious. It’s sweet and nutty and even a little bit buttery? It actually reminds me a lot of Movie Night, which is just kind of blowing my mind. I’m only about halfway through my first cup, and I plan to re-steep a few times to make this last, as I only have a 1oz bag. Sad!

I was super excited to try this tea. It is a tasty tea, for sure. To me though it tasted like Cinnamon Crackle, which I like. So while that is not a bad thing, it’s just not a oatmeal cookie to me.

I was VERY leery of this tea on seeing the name. Chocolate pie yes, Pumpkin pie, yes. Both together…seems a bit rich for my blood. The tea in the bag smells pretty good, very ‘crusty’ which suprised me as pumpkin is such a strong scent. But it wasn’t a bad thing. In the cup, its really really nice and mild compared to what I’d expected. Drinking it luke warm makes all of the flavors blend well, but I still don’t get much chocolate. That is not a bad thing because the hint that IS there is lovely.

1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml

The brewed tea has an incredibly buttery aroma- very much like a fresh pastry. I’m detecting pie crust in the scent.

The buttery taste does translate into the flavour. A little bit thin in flavour on the sip but the taste blooms into a very convincing pumpkin pie taste close to the end of the sip into the aftertaste. Slight earthy/astringent note from the black. The black tea flavour compliments the pie very nicely near the end of the sip into the aftertaste. Very nice black tea and pumpkin pie notes in the lingering aftertaste.

Thanks to Sil for passing on some of this to me!

This was my penultimate mug of Love In A Cup.

For a caramel marshmallow black, it is very well done. It’s a bit on the excessively sweet side for me, definitely not something I could ever drink regularly, but it’s a very nice dessert-y treat.

Not on my reorder list, but not a bad tea.

I shared this one a lot, so I’m almost done with my 1oz bag already. It’s quite good for when I want something sweet, it’s a nice balance of flavors and it needs absolutely nothing added to it.

I have noticed that Della Terra blacks definitely benefit from a little shorter steeping time. DavidsTeas usually ask for a steeping time of 4 minutes or so, and that does NOT work for Della Terra.

This is actually pretty delicious. I taste more marshmallow / caramel sweetness than I do chocolate sweetness, which is good – I’m not a big fan of overly sweet chocolate. In fact, I usually only eat 90% dark chocolate.

I’m on my second steep of this one tonight, and it still tastes yummy. I love black teas that are good for multiple steeps. I am glad I have more of this!

Jasmint is a good one for afternoons at the office. It’s light and refreshing and makes me feel like concentrating.

I’m so sick of work today, and I still have SO MUCH TO DO.

I made a cup of this to take to work with me this afternoon. I wanted something light and mellow that would inspire me to get my work done as fast as possible.

It worked. I was only there for about two hours. Yay!

This is a really nice blend of jasmine and green tea, with a refreshing bite of mint. It all works so well together, such a delicious cup of tea.

Mmmmm, this is really good. I love that this one still has a bit of a grassy green tea flavor, with subtle jasmine and a tiny bite of mint. It’s delicious, I will enjoy having this option for when I’m looking for a less heavily flavored cup of tea. Perfect for this afternoon!

Just like that smores tea from Teaopia. Only not nearly as good. Super astringent with some marshmallow sweetness. Almost overbearingly sugary.

TheKesser

I’ve been wondering about this one! I LOVE the s’mores from Teaopia. I bought a huge bag before it was discontinued, but I’m worried that once it’s gone, that I won’t find anything even close to it…

Indigobloom

I think I may have overleafed the cup. This was a sample, but if it ever comes into stock again, I’d recommend trying it! :)

tattooed_tea

I didn’t like the s’mores from Teaopia, but I love this one.

Indigobloom

Interesting! I wonder if it’s a love one and hate the other deal heh

Kittenna

This one, however, was possibly from me? I think I split my sample between you and Raritea. Also, I feel like it’s difficult to overleaf Della Terra teas. I usually go with 2tsp/cup anyways because they tend to be light on flavour. I just thought this one was a lot of sweet stuff and no good solid base beneath, so it was more or less sweetish icky water, haha.

Indigobloom

ha! yep that sounds about right. Sweet icky water.
I’d been wanting to try this for a while, thanks for sharing your sample!! (I didn’t give you credit cuz it wasn’t the best review!)

Kittenna

LOL! I’m not particularly worried about credit… :P

This is such a pretty tea! There are mini marshmallows, sprinkles, and gold balls mixed in and smells sweet and marshmallowy. The black tea was pretty strong but I could still taste the caramel marshmallow. I thought I would like this more based on the reviews here but it is still good. I’ve never had a marshmallow tea before, now I want to try some others because it really tastes good.

This was one of the ones in my Mystery Box! I have been too busy to log a lot of them (I’ve now tried them all) so better to start late than never.

I had this one this morning with a hint of honey and some milk. The bergamot really comes through with lingering orange and floral notes in the background. It’s not my favorite tea ever, but it was a wonderful addition to the sweet/fruity teas they also sent me. I would drink this when I want something more traditional in terms of flavoured black teas.

This is different. Lol. To many flavors to really pick any out. But its still enjoyable. It had me and my son laughing as we tried to describe it to each other. It may not have been on the top of my list for a Della Terra Tea, but it was fun and I would order it again to drink with the boys.

First tea from Della Terra Teas and I am impressed. I tried it when it was too hot, and I got mostly a sour cherry taste that I didn’t like. When it was warm, it tasted sooo good. Smooth chocolate cherry… the chocolate is pretty strong. I am so content right now, I feel like I’m wrapped snugly in a blanket of chocolate, I can smell it all around me and the aftertaste is nice. Mmmm… good cup to end the night :)

Finished off the last of this tonight, and it did not impress me. Maybe it’s just the end of the bag, but man. Not a good cup at all.

I’m not adjusting my rating, because I have previously quite enjoyed this one, but definitely not tonight.

I had a few steeps of this before bed last night, and it was quite delicious. I only have enough left for one more cup, but I don’t think I’ll reorder this one. It’s tasty though, and I am certainly looking forward to having it again.

Quite enjoying this one. It reminds me of Cookie Dough, but without the nutty or caramel flavors. It’s very creamy and not too sweet. I’m heading out tonight to sample teas with a friend of mine before I have to do some work, and really wanted to try a couple Della Terra teas before I go over there. So far, they are quite tasty!

I like this one quite a lot.

So many teas that have chocolate in them are too sweet, like milk-chocolate creamy sweet. This one tastes more like dark chocolate, and while it’s a lovely sweet dessert-y tea, it’s much more palatable for me.

Also, I just really love coconut. I think I’d drink any coconut tea, ever.

Yum! I really wanted a dessert-y tea this evening after a busy day at work, and this was quite perfect. It’s not too sweet, and has a lovely nutty flavor that goes well with the dark chocolate.

Since this one doesn’t resteep well, I mixed in about 3/4 of a teaspoon of Della Terra’s White Chocolate with my second steep. It was maybe a bit sweeter than I would have liked, but very tasty. This is definitely my favorite of the Della Terra black teas I’ve tried.
