Tea & Cards TTB #4
Ok, so I maybe messed this one up a little by using water that was too hot (it’s hard to get things right at school). Nevertheless, it wasn’t as overly bitter because of the sweetness from the white chocolate flavors. I was nervous about this one tasting overly artificial because I saw that telltale greasiness on the top of the tea, but it was actually quite well done! I also tasted a slight frutiness maybe melon(?) that was tasty. It might be from the white tea- I just haven’t had enough straight white tea to be able to tell. In any case, I’m glad that I finally got to try a Della Terra tea! I’m definitely going to put in an order with them when I decide I can come off my tea-buying hiatus.

Bio

I’m a California girl temporarily located in Boston for school (brrr). I only recently got into teas because I’ve never really liked coffee (too bitter), but I have been a daily barley tea drinker since I was little.

Through some timid tastings and exploring, I so far like:
-Japanese green teas (genmaicha, hojicha, sencha, etc)
-Oolongs! Especially more roasty/darker ones
-English Breakfast teas
-Fruity teas (peach, apple, strawberry, other berries)

NOT a huge fan of rooibos, heavily artificial tasting teas, or anything gingery or peppery, but I’m trying to keep an open mind and taste everything that I can!

I’m trying to sample more straight teas and have been having pretty awesome discoveries so far. Thank goodness for sample sizes!

My tentative rating system:
90-100: Woohoo! I’m loving it, and I’m definitely restocking when I get the chance and/or crying when I’m out.

80-90: Yum! I’ll try to restock if it fits in my budget when I run out.

70-80: Probably would not buy again, but it was nice enough to finish the cup.

50-70: Would not choose this tea for myself if given the situation, but would not reject it if someone offered it to me and would gulp down politely.

50 or less: Nope. Don’t care to taste that tea again, sorry!

I’m always down to swap, so send me a message if anything in my cupboard is calling your name!
