I was worried this may be TOO pineapple-y but its not. It has just enough of the pineapple flavor to taste it but this mostly takes like CAKE. This is THE cakey-ist flavor I have ever tasted in any tea.
I will have to savor more of this to give a better review.
What I can say is that I love Della Terra’s flavorings, never cloying, never artificial.
This is very good!
Sipdown – my second most logged tea! :( this is delicious, and will probably get re-ordered at some point..but I have Lime Chiffon and Lemon Lime Cream Tart to drink down first! A smooth cup of lemon cake right here, see previous notes on this awesome tea :)
Oh, and this is my 300th tasting note! One of my favorite teas for it too :D
I’m very close to a sipdown for this one! One, maybe 2 cups left :P I did a small boo boo with this cup, I rinsed my cups earlier with vinegar to try to remove some tea stains, must not have rinsed the one good enough, because after steeping this I smelled vinegar! I quickly transferred it to another cup and thankfully the flavor has not been affected and it smells normal again lol. This is still a smooth, sweet rooibos, but now that I’ve had Lime Chiffon and Lemon Lime Cream Tart, I can definitely taste the differences. This one is a lot sweeter and more like cake, not as much of a tangy citrus flavor. I’m still having a tough time deciding which one is my favorite of the three! This one might not be as flavorful because it’s at the bottom of a bag I’ve had for a while, but it’s still holding it’s own! Oh, and I decreased the rating a tad just so it’s on par with the Lime Chiffon becaues I’m not quite sure about which one I prefer now lol. I just love the citrus rooibos Della Terra makes I guess. I saw they made an Orange cream now too, haha definitely going to try that one too! Anyways, back onto this tea, still an awesome rooibos, and I will be sad when I finally finish this bag, but at least I have two other good ones to sip :) see previous notes on this tea!
Happy Valentines Day! I made this in the morning because I wanted something sweet, I should have made rooibos de Provence for today though, it is more valentine appropriate with all its flowers. But this one is still my favorite rooibos so it’s all good. Unfortunately I will be studying tonight and not doing anything on this sappy day haha but what can ya do lol, at least this tea is good :) see previous notes on this lovely tea!
This came with me in the timolino earlier today, not too bad, I still think for my mug I like the Green and Fruity for a rooibos though! This is such a treat still though, I need to try out the Lime Chiffon soon!
Oh, on a sad note, albeit unrelated to this tea, I was going to order a bunch of the Dulce and Banana from DavidsTea before it sold out in the last chance tea thing, but it’s already gone. :( lol
Take that flu, or whatever was making my stomach quesy. It seems to have gone away a fair amount, i’ll watch what I eat still to not aggravate it. We are up at our cabin for new years, and i brought my box of teas of course. This is my second cup of this today, made mom a cup tonight too. Mmm i just love this rooibos, definitely my favorite. See previous notes on this lemony goodness!
Last exam tomorrow!! Woot! Then I can focus on tea for a bit, and finish Christmas shopping and go see the Hobbit :) so I will crack down to studying after this tasting note. Yummy creamy lemon, I saw a big chunk of lemon in here today! Mmmm :) Please see previous notes on this tea.
Oh, and my brick of pu (lol) from Verdant has arrived! I am not sure how to deal with it really, so I am going to let it sit until I figure out how to break into it and how to go about aging it. Oh, and my boyfriend’s Christmas presents came today as well! Thought I’d post pics as they are sooo cute, and I want them for me. He loves them, he is drinking tea out of the mug right now until we figure out how to brew in the teapot, it is too small for the brew baskets, so might have to use a t-sac.
So many people drinking lemon teas today, and I am one of them :) this is my study buddy this morning. Nice and creamy, but I must say, I’m starting to miss my caffeine this week. I am not allowing myself any until my finals are over (next Tues) as it makes my anxiety a lot worse. Sigh. At least I have delicious caffeine free teas like this one to get me through! See previous notes on this tea :)
YAY my Della Terra order came yesterday, as did my teacups from Verdant! Will try to put some pics up later :) oh and I also tried the Papa Bear’s Hibernation Blend from DT but I couldn’t find it in the database! Might have to try to add a new tea lol.
So I have this tea again! Hurrah! It’s still excellent, lemony and sweet and caffeine free, which I need for my barrage of finals in the coming weeks (caffeine will just increase my anxiety too much, however, going to have a Yixing session later today anyways haha). The lemon is light and sugary today, maybe because I only steeped it for 4 mins, and usually I steep rooibos for 5. Still delicious though!
So happy I have this back in stock! Probably my favorite or second favorite rooibos tea! Oh, and upping rating due to that fact!
Backlog from yesterday – so my stomach has finally hit the breaking point for caffeine for a while :( so onto rooibos and herbal! Luckily my Della terra order came this week!
Mmmm this tea smells heavenly! I love lemon and cream, not much smell of rooibos either! I steeped for 5 mins, almost boiling water, wet smell was pretty delicious too.
As for taste, the rooibos seemed pretty strong at first to me, maybe because I haven’t had it in a while! But the creamy aftertaste was delectable, and the lemon was also there. I quite liked it! I added a little sugar just for an experiment halfway through, meh, I still prefer my teas plain, but the rooibos did tone down a bit with it.
Overall, a pretty nice rooibos! Made me warm and a bit sleepy, which was perfect for before bed. Delicious!
My first impression on opening the package was of pipe tobacco. Now, that’s not a bad thing, as I love the smell of fresh, flavored pipe tobacco. It was a strong, fresh, heady scent. Autumn leaves is a perfect name, as it reminds me of a crisp Fall day back in Michigan where I grew up. I started with 2 teaspoons in my large glass mug, steeped 2 minutes. Not a lot of flavor, so I steeped another 2 minutes. Stronger color and nice flavor, but my inner child forced me to add a packet of Truvia, which brought out the maple. (I confess I’m still learning correct amounts, temperatures and steep times.) I’m not a huge fan of rooibos, but have taken to drinking it at night when camellia sinensis might well keep me awake. To sum up, I am enjoying this tea and would not hesitate to order it again from Della Terra.
This is probably the prettiest tea I’ve had, both the dry leaves and the steeped tea. The red candy sprinkles make it shine and then once steeped the tea is shimmery.
The dry notes smell rather perfumy, I had to sample one of the chunks of apple and a piece of caramel. They also taste perfumey.
The steeped tea smells the same as the dry notes, like perfume. Unfortunetly the tea tastes pretty much the same. Perfume! Yuck. There are hints of caramel and apple, but I couldn’t get past the perfume taste. O had to ditch the tea. Too had :(
Excellent! Just excellent! I am falling in love with Della Terra Teas more and more with each “try me” pack I get from them!
A very nice oolong with perfection in the flavoring!
This is a lovely seasonal steep or really anytime of year but I am throughly going to enjoy it through fall and winter! YUM!
I feel they hit ALL the different flavors in this perfectly – well balanced – everything comes through nicely.
Going to go for a re-steep! :)
mmm I love walnuts in tea! I had to give this one a shot!
DRY: sweet, pineapple smell. I found I had a half a walnut in my tea! So tempted to eat it, but I left it in the bag.
STEEPED: nutty smell. Yellow tea.
TASTE: Sweet with a hit of nutty walnut. The tea is lightly creamy and green tea taste.
COMMENTS: I can’t help to think of DavidsTea “toasted walnut”. In comparison, WB is more sweet and the walnuts really pop out. However, TW is more creamy. Both good teas! I drank this one in record time – totally need this iced next time!
