Oh the holiday crunch… not only do I have one more paper to complete until my break has officially started, but I also promised my neighbor I would cut and color her hair! Not only does she have a lot of hair, but my timing isn’t what it used to be when I worked as a hair stylist full time. Oh well, I will review this tea and finish the paper that is due in 3-ish hours!

I’m not crazy about mint teas, unless there are other flavors to balance them out. This tea is delicious! It’s not overpowered by mint and the chocolate comes through nicely. I don’t think I could drink this every day, but this would be wonderful on occasion. I would probably write more, but I am nearly done with this darn paper and I cannot wait to get a full nights sleep! Thank you Courtney!

I love the idea of a chocolate/mint/vanilla tea! I don’t know what my beef is lately but Della Terra teas have not been thrilling to me. I guess I’m spoiled? shrug Drinkable but not something I would purchase.

Thanks for letting me try it BrewTEAlly Sweet :D

so. good.
so good!
it IS creamy and it IS coconuty and it IS slightly chocolate sweet!

i also love that this has green, white, AND black tea blended. which comes off as just a mellower even more friendly black tea flavor. i really do enjoy flavored black teas and della terra makes the best chocolate ones for my taste.
i could see myself buying a full bag next time i order. basically it’s in the top 5 of my della terra ordering list at this point. this tea suits me well.

I had this at 4Am this morning at work:) it was sooooooo good. It was minty and creamy and oh so sweet. Dessert in a cup. Or in my case breakfast in a cup. :) with my tonsillitis back again almost 4 weeks later :( I’m trying to avoid having to add milk and this did not need any whatsoever. The creaminess you get from this makes you think other wise I kid you not. It’s amazing! Yummy! This was a tea I received from Ellyn in my Secret Pumpkin Swap! Thank you*

I am sorry to hear about your tonsilitis but your review makes this sound amazing! I will definitely need to add it to my order when I place an order with Della Terra

I hope you feel better soon though!

Yikes, I hope you feel better soon. And I agree that this is one of the best teas in the world, and dellaterra comes out with an appropriately themed version of it all year!

(blah blah Della Terra sale – yup I get sucked in a lot)

Ever since the weather got colder, I have been really into cinnamon. Maybe it was the little push from my Secret Pumpkin with a whole bunch of cinnamon teas but something about it has been extra comforting. Every night I come home, I make at least a mug of tea. Tonight I started out with Della Terra Red Velvet Delight Rooibos (it’s ok) and then I decided to open this one. It smells very similar to Cinnamon Crackle though with a rooibos base.

As far as tasting is concerned, it’s slightly less fiery than the Cinnamon Crackle, BUT, it does pack a bit of a punch. I can feel it on the roof of my mouth. It tastes, similarly to CC like big red gum or sweet red hots. Again, I don’t know why I’m addicted to all things spicy at the moment but this sure is hitting the spot.

2 tsp in my 16oz steeping mug + sweetener

Backlog from Thursday.

This is Swiss Mountain with added sprinkles, right? I like the name, it’s very Halloween appropriate, and it made me smile. That’s really all the Halloween there is about this tea, though, if you don’t count the bat sprinkles. I wasn’t, at first, because you can’t really see them among the dark tea leaves, anyway. Imagine my surprise, then, when I discovered that the bat sprinkles turn this tea a murky green-grey colour. I guess it’s the dye they’re coloured with. Add milk, and it looks even worse. I guess drinking tea the colour of zombie skin probably is kind of Halloween appropriate after all, although it’s a little bit off putting.

I drank it anyway. It tastes really lovely, but if you’ve tried Swiss Mountain you know that already. There’s just the right balance of peppermint and chocolate against the black tea, and it’s sweet, refreshing and lovely. I think I’ll be tempted to drink the rest of this without milk, simply to avoid the weird colour. The black tea is a little on the weak side for milk anyway, so I guess it’s not all that much of a sacrifice. It tastes great, but I’m not 100% sold on this variation. I’ll be sticking to Swiss Mountain in future, that’s for sure.

drank Ginger Green by Della Terra

Another tea from Kittenna that i’m sneaking. I added it to Steepster since i figured i should do that with at least ONE of the teas of hers i’m trying to make her life easier. She can then just edit as she sees fit.

Not a huge fan of this one, but i don’t hate it. I wish the ginger was a little more prominent is all. Still a decent enough cup!
