Second try after yesterday’s attempt made a very lovely-smelling but not at all tea-like brew. Added a bit more leaf (1.5 tsp) and a touch of coconut sugar. It’s better and the flavors are still quite authentic, but the tea base remains tepid and hesitant to come through. I think I’m comfortable with rating this now—it’s ok but I don’t think it has the potential to shine.
This one smelled delicious—fresh-cooked oatmeal and raisin just as promised, along with a hearty sprinkling of cinnamon sugar. Upon brewing, these flavors are intact, vibrant, and natural-seeming. It’s like a fresh-baked cookie right out of the oven. Unfortunately, I don’t taste tea base. At all. So it’s like these wonderful flavors got dissolved in hot water.
I’ll troubleshoot this some other time—was it underleafing, or the water not hot enough? Adding sugar might also help. But for now, I’m refraining from rating it. Thanks beelicious for the sample, I’ll try to make something good out of it!
I’ve heard such great things about Della Terra here on Steepster that I’ve really been wanting to try out some of their teas. So I was excited to find this one when I was sorting through my sample box. I must have received it in a swap (not sure from who) and forgotten about it. I’m a bit sad I never tried this in the fall, because it strikes me as the perfect autumn tea. But it’s still quite enjoyable in the dead of winter! It has a very natural baked apple flavor with a bit of sweetness from the molasses and just a hint of spiciness to give it depth. A great introduction to this company!
Flavors: Apple, Molasses, Spices, Sweet
I made this plain for my boyfriend and as a vanilla latte for myself. I’m not sure I’d do it as a latte again because it seemed to wash out the base tea and marshmallow altogether. It just mostly tasted like caramel milk. Without anything added, it was more interesting to drink. Not my absolute favorite, though.
Mmm this is tasty. Sweet, lime and cream, all quite light but discernible. Citrus without the tartness. Slight woody note from the rooibos but it’s pretty mild. I’m not sure I like it enough to restock now that I’m done this sample, but I’m glad I got to try it. Thanks Janelle for the swap.
Flavors: Cream, Lime, Sweet, Wood
This a very attractive tea. Cute little Star of David marshmallows and little gold balls. What fun!
The tea is a nice caramel/burnt sugar flavor with vanilla and a touch of marshmallow with a nice black tea. I added a bit of stevia just like usual.
The temp is -3 F and a snowstorm is coming.
Yummy tea to pass the evening with a good book.
Flavors: Caramel, Marshmallow, Vanilla
So school went back last week and I’m being totally avoidant! I have two classes left until I graduate and with working full time and also trying to study whenever I have a spare second I’m seriously starting to get burnt out… I’m at a point where I just want to toss it all in and do nothing but read books, drink tea and go to yoga… Oh, I wish I was a lady who lunched… Until I realize I’d be bored out of my brain in a couple of months…. Maybe :)
I’ve been enjoying this tea as a nice escape recently… In fact, I’ve drunk through most of my 2 oz bag in the last two weeks!! It’s the perfect creamy vanilla mint tea and I’m pretty sure this Christmas I’ll be buying tonnes of this and skipping the David’s Tea Santa’s Secret!
This was a sipdown so I guess I’ll miss you till the end of the year Christmas Tradition
Looking for a cup of tea to warm me up on this cold cold southern Californian afternoon I immediately reached for my bag of Christmas Tradition… Is it wrong that I didnt manage to sip this during the Christmas period and am only now opening it up on New Years Eve?? Too many teas, not enough time!! Anyways, this reminds me of David’s Tea Santa’s Secret only a little less pepperminty and a little more vanillary…. The popcorn and silver balls are a nice touch but don’t add a lot of flavor… They do however make this tea super pretty to look at! I’ll enjoy sipping this down over the next few days of what passes as winter here!
Thank you so much to OST for sending me this sample, Im a newb on steepster and have no idea how to tag or bold your name! But thank you so much for this tea sample. Ive had about 2 cups now and finishing up the last of the sample tonight. This is DELICIOUS! Reminds me so much of Davids red velvet and birthday cake tea. I doubt I will purchase this as I can get something similar from DT, but I loved being able to try this. Yumm.
Flavors: Cake, Sweet
Mmmmm Crumble! with just a hint of bluberry. The crazy intense sweetness is overpowering the berriness I think.
Whatever, I did enjoy it. A nice change from the straight teas I’ve been enjoying this week!
One thing I’m noticing is that not only do I find this tasty, but its satisfying too. I haven’t figured out why, but sometimes those two factors aren’t both present. One or the other, but not both…
Also, my rating here would be much higher if there was more blueberry without sacrificing the crumble aspect – though I admit it could be an uneven distribution of flavouring, will see what happens with the next cuppa!
I shared a pot of this with my daughter when she came home from school today. It was nice with a good, basic vanilla flavor. I honestly can’t say that I paid a lot of attention to it while we were talking. However, my daughter asked for me to make it for her tomorrow morning, so it must have made a good impression on her.
This is a fun tea. There’s plenty of strawberry flavor and enough vanilla and chocolate to give it a “sundae” feel. Since it’s a dessert tea I added sugar, and then after drinking about a quarter of the cup I added cream, too. If I were going to keep this tea around I’d definitely do the cream and sugar thing. It really adds to the dessert aspect of the tea. However, I already have Strawberry Cream from Zen Tea, and since I’m already hooked on that tea I’m putting this one back in the box. Look at me showing restraint. :)
Perfect Christmas morning tea. Minty vanilla cream meets smooth black tea with a hint of malt. Now I’m trying to decide which tea to make an eggnog latte with this afternoon or if I should just dive in with a spiced rum-nog. I hope everyone is having a lovely holiday season!
Flavors: Cream, Malt, Mint, Smooth, Vanilla
On first smell of this, I was worried about how it was going to taste – it smelled very medicinal. Fortunately, the medicinal note didn’t arise in the cup.
A pleasant but not stand out rooibos. There’s a distinct note of orange peel and some fruity sweetness that I wouldn’t really pin down as persimmon.
Nice and easy to drink, but it didn’t grab me.
Flavors: Fruity, Orange Zest, Sweet, Wood
Tasty for what it is and very pretty with the blue and white stars, gold candy bits, and mini marshmallows, but I prefer S’mores from DT if I get to chose a dessert tea. I enjoy this from time to time and it does have a caramel echo, but next time I order I hope to get a GINORMOUS bag of S’mores instead.
Flavors: Caramel, Smooth, Sugar, Sweet
Steepster was being fussy when I tried to post the review of this, so this is from memory. I will be more comprehensive when I am sipping it next time.
I’d heard a lot about Eight Candles and the primary reason I wanted to order from Della Terra was to try this out. While it is a nice dessert tea, it reminds me vaguely of David’s Salted Caramel in that I wasn’t able to coax as much flavor out as I would like. Faintly caramel and sweet overall, it isn’t anything I would write home about so far. I will play around with the parameters and see what I can come up with next time around. :)
Flavors: Caramel, Sweet
Hello everyone. It’s been a while. Hope you’re all well, getting ready for the holidays.
I’ve been busy cooking, welcoming someone new into the family (brother-in-law got engaged Finally!) and … cooking. :)
In between all that I’ve Been drinking old favourites and up until this Black Friday I haven’t bought much “new” tea. This was one of the teas I picked up from Della Terra. Can’t beat their Black Friday prices, really. Assuming you like their teas, of course.
The taste of this to me is identical to DAVIDs “love tea #7” which I quite enjoy. I get the berries and the chocolate all together with black base when the tea is hot. As it cools, not so much base anymore.
Those of you not on my Instagram (which is all of you, really, save for mrmopar and one other), here’s what I’ve been up to.
Until next time…
