Thank you Janelle for a sample of this! Sometimes Della Terra’s apple teas are hit or miss. This one is a HIT. I think they got rid of the apple flavor or whatever I really didn’t like. I’m glad they didn’t get rid of any that I DO like, since they are some of my favorite apple teas! This is a buttery sencha with a nice apple & cinnamon taste. For some reason it was tasting like strawberry to me though, especially as it cooled. I like this one, but there are a couple other companies who have a better version of this blend.
Yum. One of my favourites from Della Terra. This tea seriously tastes like liquified dessert. So delicious. Caramelly, chocolatey, and no odd flavours. The black base is definitely not the star here, but it would be weak without it. This will probably be a repurchase (if it’s still around), although I should really try it next to the DavidsTea version beforehand.
Oh dear, this was a sipdown and my previous note is gone!!
That’s fine. Today has been a very mixed day. On one hand, I got some stuff done, that really needed to be done, but then it’s also been a no good icky bad frustrating day.
So I’m not too bothered by the sipdown sans note. Actually, I seem to recall that this was a sample I either shared or inherited, but now I have no idea who to thank! Though it’s probably Sil since I see ya did review it awhile back. Or maybe Kittenna?
The tea itself was quite lovely. The puerh mixed quite nicely with the spices, and lent a nice hint of cocoa to pair with the spices. I had it without sugar or milk.
No one spice stood out too much, and it was not overly spicy. For me to not have any complaints, well that is rare! where chai is concerned heh.
In fact, this is one that I would consider ordering again. I bet it would travel well in a tumbler.
Late afternoon tea with R before he heads back out for a PTA meeting. This smelled promising but then lacked flavor as DTs are sometimes wont to do. Prefer Florence on one of its good days (is that tea moody as heck for anybody else BTW?). As husband noted, still better than cat pee, ha.
Had a really nice cup of this as a mid-morning treat. I like it better than I did last time – the caramel was less artificial tasting, and not as strong, allowing the base oolong to shine through. At points, it actually reminded me fairly strongly of Butiki’s Maple Pecan Oolong. It’s not quite as good, but it makes a reasonable substitute. Maybe my parameters were better today, or maybe I was just in the mood for it, but I enjoyed this immensely.
Speaking of Maple Pecan Oolong, I must add it to my Butiki shopping list. I’ve started to put together a list of teas I want to restock in the near future, now I’ve had some time to work out my likes and dislikes, and Maple Pecan Oolong is absolutely one of them.
I’m upping my rating on this one, simply out of sheer enjoyment. Today is being a good tea day so far.
There actually isn’t much of a point in my giving this tea another tasting note, because i’ve waxed poetic about how great I think it is for the fall and winter. But that’s just it: fall and winter. And despite the weather people predicting that winter is going to last another 53379848959 years, I refuse to believe it’s true, mostly because if it is true I’m going to end up living in an institution. So I’m frantically trying to drink down my fall and winter teas. and, you know, thereby justifying a massive spring and summer tea shopping spree. Every time spring is about to roll in, I vow to myself that I’m going to spend more time outdoors. But then I forget how much of a hermit I am by nature like any time of the day/month/year, and old habits die hard and all that sort of thing. Guzzled this in my timolino six or so hours after preparing it. Participated in a disclosure meeting today that destroyed my faith in humanity, and although I’m still reeling from it a bit, it’s nothing compared with what I imagine the affected people are dealing with. Anyway, sorry that was coded and cryptic. Basically tea is great, I’m a hermit, and spring needs to arrive yesterday.
The girls (our three cats) conferred and decided to let me out of bed to make tea. When I’m sick, all three pile into the bed with (and on) me, despite their personal issues with each other. But now Earlie (full name Earl Jean Grey) is jealously guarding me and the tea, and I’m not sure which one she’s more interested in.
This tea smells so, so good. My mouth started watering as soon as I opened the package. I had been hoping for a sipdown before I remembered we bought two try me packs of this tea…oh well.
The first sip is wonderful. Cinnamon (my favorite), vanilla, sweetness. But every sip after that is more and more of a let down. I taste no oatmeal and no raisins. Sadness. I’m greatly enjoying the cinnamon, but I have cinnamon crackle. I have no need for other cinnamon teas XD. And I feel like The Glow from DavidsTea is a much better oatmeal tea.
So it will be a pleasure to finish up this cup, but I don’t feel the need to replace it.
I saw VarieTEA had a tasting note for this and I wanted another black tea this afternoon so I grabbed it. If you read my tasting note a bit ago, you’ll know I have a cold and can’t taste much, so don’t take my note as completely accurate :)
I’ve had this one several times before.. a sample I bought from Della Terra. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but still a good tea. I imagined a red hot or cinnamon disk candy when I ordered this one, but I get sweet candy cinnamon of a different kind, no heat, and maybe it’s the strawberry from the pop rocks that give it the odd sweet un-cinnamon smell/taste… ??
I don’t know if I’ll find that red hot/ cinnamon disk candy flavored tea, but I think I’ll be ok w/o it until next fall. I’m dreaming of warmer weather and Spring right now… even though the temperatures have fallen yet again and we are expecting heavy snow Sunday/Monday next week Ugh!
I had this tea a couple days ago and opted not to post due to my last of tastebuds with this crazy cold I’ve had. I would have called it blueberry black when I tried it then.
This morning I thought I’d give it another try since I’m gaining some taste back and wanted a black tea this morning. I completely forgot I had it steeping so I don’t think it fair to rate it this time either. Today I get lots of floral, raspberry black tea w/ no tartness/acidity you might expect with pomegranate.
I wouldn’t have picked this one out myself because I don’t often go for fruit (or floral)teas, except for apple, coconut, or pineapple, but I do find my tastes are changing and I’ve come to enjoy a few of them more and more. I guess up to now I’ve mainly avoided berry and banana teas.. Hubby likes the berry flavored teas (& even some floral), go figure!
I will give this one another try when I get my head cleared up and my tasters back, and give it a fair rating then. :) As it sits right now, it’s a more drinkable cup than I expected I would get from it.
I finally get to compare the Lime Chiffon to the Lemon Chiffon! -Thank you Courtney!
I’m a big fan of the Lemon Chiffon so have been really curious to compare the two. Like the Lemon Chiffon, this has a very sweet aroma that fills the room and the smell of each is almost indiscernible. Unlike the Lemon Chiffon, the citrus flavor of the lime really stands out and the acidity cuts back on the natural sweetness. Even though this doesn’t taste as sweet, it’s still a delicious fruity tea.
Well this is not that bad. I was a tad bit concerned because I found White Chocolate Coconut Cream to have an over-the-top richness. Luckily there is none of that here. The base is present but not at all overpowering and the white chocolate flavor is smooth and has just the right amount of sweetness. All in all, pretty tasty. Though, it is not something I am rushing to restock anytime soon and given it is no longer available on their site, I suppose others felt the same. However, I am intrigued as to how the White Chocolate Raspberry tasted as I could imagine a raspberry flavor blending quite nicely with this cup.
Oh cinnamon tea, why did I buy you? I think I found steepster too close to BF. I was so excited to TRY ALL THE TEAS that I decided to really take advantage of the many different sales to buy them all. Unfortunately, after some time realizing what my likes/dislikes are, I was left wondering why I bought half the teas I did when the orders finally came in. This is one of those teas. I find cinnamon to be rather finicky in teas and I really hate when cinnamon gets overly sweet.
This is just on the border of cinnamon sweetness. It is spicy enough that I can manage to drink the cup but I think this will be added to my teas to swap because I don’t particularly want to drink it again.
