This tea had a scent of orange, cream, pepper, spice and dried orange peel combined with a faint woodiness that reminds me of myrh. The creaminess may come from the coconut. It tastes creamy orange woodiness followed by spice and a reference to sandalwood. The aftertaste is slightly powdery. This is a warming tea. Pleasant.
Thanks Azzrian for sharing this sample with me.
It is a very decent tea, with a light tea base and good aromas of blackberry.
It makes the job without being exceptional nor complex.
I am still searching the perfect blackberry tea and moreover a perfect raspberry tea.
MMmmmm sipdown of this tea. It will be missed until I place another order. I added some cream and sugar to this and it turned into a rich dessert tea. So delicious and creamy. Lovely candy-like lemon and lime flavors. Almost like a lemon\lime filling in pastries. All of the flavors came out and it’s amaazziiinnggg. Hopefully it will help my insomnia. I can’t sleep and I’m not sure why.
Oooohh my goodness gracious this tea smells amazing. It’s so tart and dessert like. The flavor isn’t as strong as I thought it was going to be. There is a nice citrus taste and the cream is a lovely touch. It really does taste like a liquid cream tart. I’m happy it’s a rooibos base. It just works really well.
Sipdown! 830. The rest is off to Janelle :)
I do like this one, even though I don’t think it’s a favourite of others. It tastes a bit reminiscent of Blueberry Crumble, with a jumble of berry flavour dominant over the sweet crumbly flavour. Farewell, tasty tea!
Seriously, I can’t even begin to describe how incredibly berrylicious this tea is! AMAZING! Pure real blueberry/cranberry flavour is what I’m getting, and it’s way better than I would have imagined. I’m very picky about flavoured greens, and honestly wouldn’t have picked this one myself, I just jumped on it when Sil wanted to try it, and that was such a good decision :) This is pretty much the perfect hibiscus-free berry tea. I don’t frankly care if it’s artificially flavoured, because it is so good!
Thanks Stephanie for the sample!
It a good tea. I’m a huge rooibos guy and I love the taste of lemon in all teas. The lemon in this guy didn’t “wow” me but it was there. It’s a mellow evening kind of tea. I prefer my Lemon Dreams I think at night, but this guy would work in a pinch no problem.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tisane to try. I loved how good it smelled – it made me think of freshly baked lemon bars … and just remembering how good it smelled is making my mouth water.
Here is my full-length review of this tisane: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/01/26/lemon-chiffon-from-della-terra-teas-2/
I’m thankful I put in all the work and made this on the stove with milk and honey as otherwise I don’t think I would like it at all. The rating is compared to other chais prepared in similar methods as after all the work, the tea was quite yummy. But how can something not be delicious when it contains milk and loads of honey? This tea though smelled strongly of coffee which is okay, I like coffee. But as it brewed I smelled a burnt taste and this was reflected in the tea. I suppose that is how dirty chai is supposed to taste? But this wasn’t for me.
Sipdown! 819. The rest is off to Janelle. (Also, I got to remove Cinnamon Crackle from my cupboard as well – yay!)
Anyhow, I just brewed up a half-cup of this today, and I think I underleafed (or understeeped), as the flavour’s a bit light. It does taste like pear, but there’s just an air of perfuminess that’s a bit too much for me to handle, and I seem to recall it being even worse when the tea was fresher. Probably a great tea for those who enjoy pear as well as floral teas.
So apprehensive… yet another tea on the quest to find the perfect pear tea! Honestly, a black is not my base of choice, but Simpson & Vail did well with their pear-flavoured black tea, so I’m hopeful that this might be a contender.
The aroma of the brewed tea is of a bit of a floral pear; not quite what I’m looking for, but not necessarily bad either, as it is just the aroma. The sip, however, is clearly rather floral, but definitely tastes like pear, albeit a floral, fakey sort. There’s a bit of astringency from the base as well, but a drop in infusion time could probably remedy that.
This tea does have a fair bit of flavour, and it is tasty, but it’s too floral for me to really enjoy as a pear tea, and I want more of a realistic pear flavour. The search continues.
Guys…. there is corn in this tea! I had to do a double-take and check the ingredient list, but yep it’s there! Of course, as I was just thinking about that, it occurred to me that this tea is not a white, but a white/green blend, and I very well may have used much too hot of water for it :( Hopefully it isn’t ruined.
Anyhow, in addition to the corn, there are sizeable crystallized pineapple chunks, which add to the sweet, fruity aroma from both the dry and steeped tea. The cup actually smells quite pineapple-y fruity, kind of like… Mango ‘n Friends?? Or some DavidsTea with pineapple pieces. I can’t really recall.
The flavour is definitely a bit astringent, which I’ll blame on myself for the time being, and quite fruity/pineappley as expected. Unfortunately, the pineapple seems to be overwhelming any nice “tea” flavour that I might get from this blend, so it’s really coming off as a fruity, astringent herbal to me, which is kind of unfortunate. I can’t taste anything at all from the corn… it’s a bit gimmicky in my opinion, but perhaps something will come of it in the second infusion. I’m also not picking up the jasmine at all, although it could easily be disguised by the pineapple.
For now, I’m fairly unimpressed – there’s nothing wrong with this tea, but it’s nothing special and I’ll admit that I’m happy to be splitting a Try Me pack of it with Sil, because although I once thought I was a big fan of pineapple in blends, I apparently no longer am.
Sipdown! Despite spending… A year?! In a single-serving sample baggie, this tasted pretty darn good. I was too lazy to compare it with the other two, but I enjoy them all, and that’s good enough. This wasn’t fresh enough for it to be a valid comparison though. Yummy, creamy citrus. Mmmmmmm.
Trying another cup of this… too lazy to do a side-by-side-by-side with the other relevant teas tonight, but I left a single cup’s worth of this one so that I can do so maybe on Sunday.
This certainly tastes different from both the Lime Chiffon & Orange & Cream I’ve been drinking lately – I can taste a distinct lemon note – but I still feel like for the most part to me, it’s pretty much just a combination of Lemon and Lime Chiffon. To be honest, even without a direct comparison I’m 99% sure that my favourite of the lemon-limes is Lime Chiffon, because although I adore lemons, I prefer the flavour of limes. That said, all three of these teas (plus Orange & Cream) are wonderfully delicious, and especially after the discovery of their amazing cold-brewing properties, at least one of the four variants is likely to be in my cupboard at all times (particularly during the summer).
To be perfectly honest, I’m not entirely sure that this is much different from Lime Chiffon. In fact, I’m wondering if it’s a mixture of lemon and lime chiffon (I was wondering that before purchasing it as well). Either way, that means that it’s gently citrusy and creamy and quite delicious! My second cup will have to be alongside some Lemon/Lime Chiffon so I can see what the differences are, if any.
Still not sold on marshmallow teas but this one was decent. I do like caramel so that was probably it. We all enjoyed it enough and second steep was good – I nearly always do 3 minute first steep and 4-5 minute second steeps for favored teas unless I find the second steep isn’t worthwhile.
Finally finished off my sample of this tea.
It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s fine… I like the smokiness and the burnt kind of marshmallow-y flavor, and the graham cracker is perfect. But the smell reminds me of my farm, and I am finding more and more that Della Terra blends are very hit and miss for me. This one is a bit of a miss, but I appreciate why others might really enjoy it. It’s definitely s’mores-y.
