Sipdown! Been drinking this in the afternoon and I’ve come to the conclusion that this might be the second tea from Della Terra that I love. Bumping the rating up a little since it was much tastier this afternoon. I’d consider picking this up again as a semi-permanent dessert tea for my cupboard.

backlog from yesterday…

I’ve discovered the way to drink this is with a splash of milk – something i don’t normally ever put in my teas. I tried it last night because we have an abundance of cream in the house as i’d picked some up for my parents to have with their coffee and now i don’t know what to do with it! lol

The addition of the cream made this taste like a cookie! it toned down the cinnamon and just made it into a melty delicious cookie.

This is mighty tasty folks! When i opened the bag it was like I had cracked open a bag full of those soft oatmeal cookies you can get at the store. How does it taste? Pretty damn good! I could use just a touch less cinnamon, though i suspect adding a bit of milk to this would work as well. I may have to try that next time. overall a pretty tasty dessert tea.

Backlogging now that my parents have gone for the evening. :)

I tried this after the vanilla tea from Steeped and Infused to get a comparison and let me tell you, there is no comparison. The other tea is exactly what i so hoped this one would be. While this is still a tasty tea, it’s not not full of the vanilla love i so want from it.

Mmmm this is a really tasty tea! Nt too overpowering on the vanilla and a nice balance with the black. I haven’t had too many other vanilla blacks but this is pretty tasty!

Another sample sipdown! This one came from Azzrian, I’m fairly certain.

I have about five different vanilla teas in my stash right now, and even for me that’s a bit too much.

This one has a really interesting sort of baked goods smell wafting from it – as if it really were a “cafe” vanilla tea instead of just a vanilla tea! There’s a buttery fruitiness to it that’s really intriguing. A lovely cup.

This came in a holiday sample box from Azzrian. Thank you Azz!!

It smells so decadently vanilla. The aroma is authentic and strong. I steeped 1tsp/8oz/4minutes. The black base is strong, but the vanilla is really creamy and sweet. A little bit of agave and milk and I’m in heaven. A lovely way to start the day after a late night :)

What?!? I haven’t reviewed this yet? How terrible of me.

This is my second cup of this and it is amazingly delicious. It’s nutty, slightly sweet and a bit fruity. So much walnut flavour. This is a great any time tea. So in love with this one. Perhaps it may be my fav green tea.

drank S'mores by Della Terra Teas
577 tasting notes

My very first tea from Della Terra Teas! I’m very excited after reading many of the great reviews.
I first taste the black tea base. It’s not bitter.. but just very present. That taste quickly changes into a smooth milk chocolate with a little bit of graham cracker. This tea reminds me of a cereal I had when I was younger. I can’t think of WHAT cereal it is, though. The strange thing that happens is that none of the flavors stick around for a long time. They fade very quickly and don’t leave a really memorable taste. I was expecting a tea like Teaopia’s Fireside S’mores — that one still remains my top S’mores/graham cracker flavored tea. This blend isn’t all that bad.. it’s just not memorable & lacks the graham cracker/marshmallow flavors I want.

Uggg, the weather is just annoyingly hot for me the last few days. Thankfully, it’s supposed to cool off soon, but probably it’ll be hot again.

Made a latte with this tea this morning, coming out really cinnamony smooth and delicious! I didn’t notice the pop rocks while steeping. Very good! I like how fun this tea is!

Say what, no notes on this tea?
Am I the only one who was super curious of the pop rocks in this tea? OMG POP ROCKS!

DRY: Red hots – super spicy cinnamon smell!
STEEPED: smokey black and cinnamon smell. Yes, I heard the pop rocks going off while it steeped! Sounded more like bubbles popping.

TASTE: Spicy cinnamon, sweet and warm. Nice full body from the black tea base. Tastes just like those spicy cinnamon hearts on valentines day. There is a powerful cinnamon candy finish, with a hit of almost bitter loads of cinnamon just like the candies. The cinnamon tingles my tongue as an after effect.
Quite sweet on its own, does not need sugar I think.

COMMNENTS:
Liquid Candy tea!
This reminds me of DAVIDsTea’s “Hot Lips” but much much better. The sweet finish makes this tea more like a cup of candy than a straight cinnamon blasting. The pop rocks were a fun bonus to this tea.

This would be a fun latte (I always think that). If you like spicy cinnamon and sweet teas, seek this one out!

Pop rocks in tea is genius. +1 for Della Terra!

This is pretty decent. I feel like all of the elements are well balanced here; people who like their flavoured teas to still taste like tea may like this. The black base is nice, and the chocolate and strawberry are equally present, I’d say (which contradicts the next sentence, but I think I’m just better at picking up chocolate than fruit notes). I get more chocolate and only the suggestion of strawberry (there’s a tartness that lingers in your mouth, and upon first sipping it you get some berry flavour).
So yes, it’s good. A perfectly decent tea and very well executed, but not mindblowing for me. Of course, I don’t think chocolate covered strawberries are anything to write home about either, so your mileage may vary.

Last cup of this baby, so it’s out of my cupboard now. I won’t reorder it yet but if I get a craving for it I’ll do it.

I had this baby this morning on my way into work and ooooh it’s so yummy! I love that the strawberry really stands out in it, the chocolate is just enough that you taste it’s there but is isn’t dominant. Tasty treat!!

I had such a fun time waking up with this today! I have steered away from Teavana’s My Morning Mate for some black teas since I have so many to try and this was SUCH a treat! It’s fruitier than I expected, which I love, sometimes with chocolate/fruit teas the fruit is almost non existent, the flavors feel drying, or the fruit tastes artificial. This tasted so spot on like a chocolate strawberry and I even underbrewed it. I’m in love with this tea and it is true to it’s name, no guessing flavors here, you’ll know as soon as you sip that you are drinking (a basically calorie free!) chocolate covered strawberry.

drank Candy Cane by Della Terra Teas
156 tasting notes

I brewed up a pot of this last night while I watched the Grinch with my kitten on the couch by the lit tree :) It was a great accompaniment to the movie and reminded me of being a little kid because my dad used to make me peppermint tea. The little candy canes in the tea are adorable, I’m such a sucker for the teas that Della Terra puts sprinkles in (LOOOVE Winter Nog).

It’s like a typical herbal mint tea, obviously it has the caffeine of a black tea, but it isn’t bitter and I doubt the average person would taste a difference (I know that none of the Steepsterites are average people… we’re all crazy tea snobs).

The little candy canes redeem what is otherwise a basic black mint tea. Luckily I have a soft spot for mint tea.

This is fabulous, my first love of tea was peppermint so I was excited to try this out. It’s not a typical peppermint, it is definitely candy like, a vanilly sweetness almost. I will be enjoying plenty of this while the snow falls here in the mountains tomorrow. This is a perfect holiday blend, all of Della Terra’s teas lack the bitterness that can steer me away from black tea, they are all smooth and easy and highly enjoyable to drink!

Brought some of this to my meeting this morning and it really helped me sit through it. Not that I don’t like the Wednesday meeting but when it goes over I get antsy. This has the perfect amount of pumpkin pie spice without overtaking the taste of the tea. And again…the novelty of little cute shaped sprinkles in my tea is my weakness.

Mmmmmm! This is so spot on in flavor and smell I just can’t contain my love. I was hestitant about a pumpkin tea but then again, if you think about a gourd in a pie it’s a strange concept too…but a delicious one! This tea is smooth, with the perfect spice, and was an amazing addition to my night of watching DVR’s episodes of Fringe.

2nd cup of the morning, My Morning Mate was first but I drink it every morning so I’m not going to log it.

I drank this when I got back to my office after running a couple kitties to the vet for the Humane Society. It was a mama kitty and her baby!! Trina was the mama 1.5 years old and Trixie was her baby, 9 months old. They were fluffy little black kitties with white chest, paws, and nose. I wanted to keep them and snuggle them all day. At least I get to see them again this afternoon when I pick them up from the doctor!

I can’t get over this tea…I’m moving my rating up to 100. I savor this so I don’t go through it like it’s water but I had a cup last night and was just in heaven. It’s my ultimate after dinner treat and I’ll be needing to seriously stock up soon.
