I bought a lot of stuff online for black friday and cyber monday (with me being the only one of my friends circle buying stuff, everyone was on the “no buy” bandwagon. I cannot resist deals, especially tea deals.)
My della terra order is the first thing that came out of all the stuff I bought! WOOOOOT!
DRY: strong, liquor like smell with a mix of spices scent. Very cute snow flake sprinkles!
STEEPED: similar to dry, liquoury spicy smell. Inviting and not smelling like ack rooibos!
TASTE: Warm, well rounded spices – lightly cinnamon and nutmeg? The spices are not overly strong or overpowering. Slightly sweet and creamy. Warming on the tongue from the spice. A touch watery, but very good considering I’ve had many watery rooibos blends. Not very red rooibosy tasting, in fact, I forgot I was drinking rooibos!
COMMENTS: I’m thinking this tea as a latte, this would be killer!
I quite enjoy this Winter nog – it’s a great evening, winter tea. The spice level is perfect, it’s kinda sweet. Yum. I don’t know if I’d order more after the sample is done as it’s not making me go crazy yet, but I’d highly recommend peeps to try this tea out if you are into a good winter themed tea.
Travel-mugged this one as well. Definitely more creamy today, so I’ll really have to repeat my comparison, and add Lemon-Lime Cream Tart in there too. Quite tasty though. I think that keeping one of these delicious citrusy-cream teas in my cupboard may be a necessity. Luckily(?) it will be a long time before I run out….
I swear I nearly died of anticipation while steeping this one. It just smells SO GOOD. With a taste to match. I think I like this even better than I did the first time. Delicious lemon, amazing creaminess. I can’t wait to try out the Lime Chiffon (although I haven’t yet ordered any…)
Brewed this up in the Timolino at the boy’s house, and was quite pleased with it! A nice creamy rooibos with a hint of lemon. I seem to recall wishing for more lemon, but all the teas I drank in the last 24 hours are kind of blending together, so I’ll have to verify this later. It’s certainly not cleaner-like lemon though, which is always good!
Sipdown! … 874. Yeah… my cupboard increased by 71 teas thanks to my swaps with Sil, Cavo, and all the tea I bought and sent via Sil. Yikes. I am dangerously close to 900 – better make some progress!
Anyhow, I pretty much maintain my position on this tea – it tastes much like DavidsTea’s Glitter & Gold – sweet, warm cinnamon – maybe with a bit of smoothness from the oatmeal. Tasty enough, but not super special for me, especially since I’ve recently gone off cinnamon-heavy teas.
Gonna be backlogging a bunch of teas from the weekend… sorry!
My first impression of this tea was that it reminded me of DavidsTeas Glitter & Gold. The cinnamon spicing is done similarly, in my opinion, which is ok by me as I quite like that tea!
I am not really getting “oatmeal cookie” here, although this is a reasonably tasty tea. The light spicing is similar to that which I use in my oatmeal cookies, but the base (i.e. cookie, oatmeal) is mostly absent. I see why people like this tea, but I’m likely to just stick to G&G, personally.
After being held hostage by my post office, my Halloween order from Della Terra is finally here! Of course even thought it’s now the Christmas season I had to try the most Halloween-y of my new teas first.
Probably the best thing about this blend is the color. It’s green! A perfect witch’s brew. In the bag it smells candy-sweet and kind of overwhelmingly fruity, but once brewed up it’s much more mellower. It reminds me of a calmer Mother of Pearl, only a bit more tropical from the passion fruit. I’m only getting a hint of pineapple, with passion fruit/mango as the dominant flavors. The rooibos is wayyy in the background which I really like, no weird medicinal taste with a slight woodiness. A nice fruity tea, and probably a great one to serve to guests just to see how they react to dark green tea!
I don’t know, this one is yummy but tastes absolutely nothing like any oatmeal raisin cookie I’ve ever had. It reminds me a LOT of DavidsTea Glitter and Gold, because they share the same cinnamon/spice flavour. They smell identical, and brewed the taste the same too except this tea tastes like Glitter and Gold but “more”. G&G is a little weak on flavour for me, but in this tea the flavour is nice and strong. Of course, this one doesn’t glitter, so G&G still has that going for it.
There’s definitely an orange note in here, which makes sense because there are orange peels floating around in the leaf. It’s like that spicy-Christmas-orange taste. Very delicious, but absolutely nothing like an oatmeal raisin cookie.
In sum: Good, but disappointing in that its nothing like you’d expect it should taste. And if you already have Glitter and Gold, don’t get this. However if you WANT Glitter and Gold, get this instead because the flavour is better (although you do lose out on the sparkles).
One word for this tea: AMAZING!! This tea is soooo yummy. I purchased it thanks to Azzrian’s review. So glad I did. Marshmallowy goodness. I was so happy that Della Terra restocked yesterday. Picked up 2oz of this and the Candy Cane! My bank account has really suffered this season, but somethings are worth it ;)
Oops, I did it again. I opened the new packet and stuck my nose in. Really bad idea with this blend, the fragrance of which immediately reminded me of cough syrup. Yuck. Undeterred, I doled out a bit into my infuser.
The dry leaf in the infuser smells less like cough syrup than it does when you inhale the entire packet at once, but there’s still a pretty strong chemical component which I found pretty unpleasant. Thankfully, it’s mostly absent from the brew’s fragrance.
I’m pretty sure this is my first blueberry tea. Its flavour redeems it greatly, as the chemical nature of the fragrance is absent from the flavour and you’re left with a creamy tasting blueberry tea. The one thing that I learned is that I quite like this flavour, so I’m looking forward to trying other blueberry blends. But this one? Well, even if it were the only one, it still wouldn’t be my favourite, but it’s a pleasant enough introduction to the flavour profile.
My resolve to drink a full, unsweetened/unadulterated cup of any tea of which I have more than just a cup or two has already broken down and I’m back to taking just a few unsweetened sips before adding whatever I want to make it yummier. While I’ll probably still try to give it a go with straight tea, it doesn’t make sense with flavoured blends. Why fully enjoy five of six cups when I can fully enjoy six of six, amirite? =)
So. Blueberry Afternoon is fine unsweetened. Contrary to my expectations, I didn’t detect any tartness at all. I mean, I figured the “creamy” bit would offset most of the natural blueberry tartness, but I still expected a little, and I was happy to be wrong. And then I sweetened it and was even happier. =)
Tea amount: 1 tsp/~4.75g

As I was brewing this up last night, I could smell the rooibos quite heavily. Medicinal and icky, which resulted in me avoiding drinking it until now, when I drank cold tea out of a mug by my bed. I actually couldn’t figure out which tea I was drinking at first, but process of elimination clearly identified it as this one. Thankfully, the rooibos has been tamed, and the result is a reasonably pleasant cup of tea that mostly tastes like a variant of Creme Caramel Rooibos. I really can’t pick up on any cappuccino flavour whatosever.
Overall, not as bad as I expected, but not Della Terra’s finest tea. Winter Nog is a far superior rooibos, in my opinion!
I received a sample of this with an order I placed. Since I don’t usually enjoy peppermint, I would never have chosen it myself. With that said, I am pleasantly surprised at this delicious winter treat. The peppermint flavor is subtle, blended deliciously with cocoa. This is so yummy, it may replace hot cocoa for me. Need a little peppermint pick-me-up this morning.
I haven’t logged lately because I’m not trying new things lately because all my money has gone to Christmas presents!! But I am sipping a delicious cup of this at my desk awaiting the 2 Christmas parties of the day to begin…also going crazy with excitement about my Nook Color that my lovely boyfriend gave my for Christmas and waiting impatiently to go pick out a cover!!
Rich smooth chocolate, spicy warm chili, an incredibly indulgent and uniquely flavored tea.
