This was a free sample with my order! This one is so smooth it might be TOO smooth somehow. I’m not sure how to explain it. The flavors go so well together, it seems like it turns into ONE flavor. Make sense? Probably not. There is a definite chocolate with that great roasted mate flavor that is kind of earthy. I also tasted a hint of coconut and that was lovely in this blend too. The flowers were a bit of color! A yummy blend from Della Terra, but the flavors work so well together, they need something more to really pop. But maybe I’m just getting spoiled with all these ridiculous blends lately.
This tisane is BEAUTIFUL. Have you ever had those gummy candies that are shaped like oranges? This is EXACTLY what this tea reminds me of! I’m sipping on my second cup of it now. (Well soon to be second cup as soon as it cools!) This is a tasty tisane that titillates your taste buds. (See what I did there?! :P) The orange flavor really POPS and a slight sour-y (good sour not bad!) sweet taste pops in your mouth and makes for a fantastic drink. Definitely re-order worthy for me!
Another great della terra tea. First almond tea I have had and agree with others it smells and tastes more like amaretto (which is similar anyway). This is likely due to the almond flavoring (almond extract?) that always gives this flavor. That said I really liked the tea as did my tea tasting buddy. Definitely recommend brewing time longer than the 2-3 minute stated on bag and to stick to 1.5 tsp/6-8 ounce. As others have said, this tea is good but lacks some in strength of flavor – but you can often compensate with combo of more tea/longer steep.
Both dry and brewed the smells of the coconut, malt, and barely are at the forefront. Not sure how much chocolate flavor I’m getting from the scent at least. This kind of combine and remind of a licorice type scent, but that could just be my weird nose.
I went for a lower water temp than was suggested, mostly because that’s how I’ve done mate before, I also steeped it for a bit less. Taste wise, it’s interesting. Not sure how much mate I’m picking up, seems to be more spice type flavors. It’s sweet, but I’m having such trouble putting a descriptive phrase to the flavor because it reminds me of something, but it’s right there and I can’t figure out what it is. There is a light cocoa note, but I wouldn’t have named this Chocolate Mate, it doesn’t quite have enough chocolate in it for that. Just looked up that it had rooibos in it, didn’t realize. I think that’s the more dominant flavor, the sweet kind of woody caramel note.
Tea: 1 tsp
Water: 8 oz
Brewing method: My lovely forest teapot
I made my first order with Della Terra on black friday and I was very excited that my order showed up at my apartment yesterday. I had a stressful night last night and I couldn’t sleep very well. We started rattie introductions and the first meeting was stressful. Hadley is definitely a little high strung compared to my other furkids. I know a little agression is normal, but I’m a total worrier and intros are just so stressful for me. So naturally I stayed up all night wondering what might happen. How things might turn out. If they would ever be friends.
Tonight we’re going to add a little rescue remedy to the mix to relax everyone a bit. And if that doesn’t work then I’ll schedule her for a spay next friday. I wanted to wait until after the holidays, but maybe a spay will straighten her hormones out. We’ll see…
Eight candles looks so fun. The little candies and gold pieces are so cute! This tea is yummy. Caramel marshmallows? Yes please! I am loving the sweetness. This is a good pick me up. I wish I could be more descriptive, but I’ve barely slept and I couldn’t stay in bed past 3 am. I’m running on empty here. I’ll have to review this again when I’m more clear headed.
On a positive note I got the Christmas cage set up! Of course I have to show off some pictures of my Christmas decorating madness…
I wonder what santa will leave in their stockings this year?!
This was a free sample included in my recent DT order! I thought it was really generous of them, since I only ordered 2 teas and it was during their 50% off Halloween sale to boot. The timing happened to be perfect though—I had a rather rough day and needed something comforting and dessert-y that wouldn’t keep me up all night. Well, it’s 4 in the morning, so I guess I mean won’t keep me up until morning!
While I’m not the biggest fan of rooibos, I don’t mind it in fruity blends (for example, it doesn’t bother me at all DT’s their Black Cat or Blueberry Cream!), and with dessert teas I can handle it with milk and sugar. Though this time, I actually added dulce de leche instead, which will give the desired sweet/creamy effect while also amping up the caramel notes.
This is pretty much just what you’d expect—nice, warming cappuccino and espresso notes with a backing sweet caramel. I found the coffee element to be a lot stronger than the caramel when I tasted it sans dulce, though after it was obviously a lot stronger. It’s got a very light quality, almost foamy. The rooibos is present but not enough to make me put down the cup thankfully. Just what I needed tonight!
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).
