87 Tasting Notes
I’m so obsessed with this tea…
With this tea, I mostly taste cinnamon and after that, vanilla. I only kind of taste carrot cake. It’s very good but it is missing something. It definitely makes me think of carrot cake, but I think if I was drinking this without knowing the flavor, I might not pick up on that.
Very smooth and the peach comes through pretty strong. There is almost a floral(?) taste to this tea? I guess because of the white peony. I don’t really love that when paired with the peach flavor. But it’s good.
My fiance really enjoyed this tea. He takes it iced to work. Here’s what he had to say: “tastes like thin mints!”
That’s all he had to say about that.
To say this smells exactly like root beer is an understatement. I could smell this tea before I even opened the box it was shipped in. It is currently making my office smell like root beer. It took me a while to convince myself that it wouldn’t be weird to drink this hot, because hot root beer is kind of a strange thought. But I finally brewed it and it’s good. The smell of this tea is stronger than the taste which is a little bit disappointing. But it IS delicious. I can’t wait to make this iced.
Last of the teas from the chocolate try me pack.. Well, I guess there is one more, but I can’t drink it because of the peppermint. Gave it to my fiance who took it iced to work, so maybe I’ll have him review that one later.
Anyway, back to THIS tea. I taste the chocolate and the strawberry flavors ALMOST equally. To me the strawberry comes through a little bit stronger than the chocolate. There is a nice tartness to the strawberry flavor. But I wish both of these flavors were stronger.. especially the chocolate.
Hmm.. this has black tea in it? I don’t really taste it. I thought the green/black blend was really interesting, haven’t had many green/black blends. The apple flavor comes through nicely, but I don’t get a lot of chocolate taste. It’s there, but very subtle. It’s a good tea, but not something I plan on ordering more of.
The way this tea smells reminds me of hot chocolate. Like really good hot chocolate. I appreciate that the strong chocolate flavor of this tea really comes through as a DARK chocolate flavor… Because dark chocolate is superior to milk chocolate. Unsweetened, this tea tastes great, but add a pinch of sugar and it’s phenomenal.
This is my first ever taste of Della Terra Teas. I am very impressed! This tea smells like s’mores and it definitely tastes like s’mores too.. and not in an artificial way either.
Just what I needed for the post Super Bowl mess that is today.
I drink this tea all the time at work, especially on days like today when my allergies have me DRAINED and I need a nice pick me up. I haven’t reviewed it yet because I pretty much have no idea how to describe it. The interesting thing about this tea is I don’t really taste the earl grey, blackberry, or vanilla. Somehow they have swirled together to make a flavor that is quite bold, yet sweet enough that I can drink it without sugar or milk (which is pretty rare for me when it comes to black tea). And I normally don’t even like earl grey of any kind.. Overall, I wish there was something more exciting? about this, but it’s good.
