286 Tasting Notes

This is one of the prettiest teas I’ve ever seen, with green and black tea leaves, blue and pink flowery bits, and little silvery sugar sprinkles. So lovely!

I was a bit worried that with the sprinkles, it might be too sweet, but I don’t think it is. It has a very subtle, warm blueberry flavor, with a thicker kind of cinnamon-y taste that is absolutely fantastic. It really delivers what the name implies.

I am definitely going to enjoy drinking my 1oz packet, and this could possibly end up on a reorder list, depending on how I feel about Blueberry Cream Cheese Danish (whenever that gets here).

I always forget to log teas that I drink cold. Having a jar of this while I lay on my couch, it’s one of my favorite fridge-teas. I can’t wait to drink this when it’s hot outside. Yum.

I made my first cup and then didn’t have time to drink it until it had cooled considerably, which worked for me since I prefer my teas that way, anyway. This is incredible. Sweet, fruity, cake-y goodness. I don’t really like cake, because the texture kind of turns me off, but this is delicious.

I wish I could order more, but shipping to Canada from Simpson & Vail is a flat rate of $30, and that is impossible for me to justify. Sorry, Strawberry Cupcake. I wish I could drink more of you.

Thanks, Mitch, for this delightful sample!

$30??? Yikes!

yyz

Simpson and Vail can be ordered through Amazon.com and the shipping is cheaper for Canadians this way still not necessarily super cheap. I created a mock order of 2 items and shipping was $12.95, but still cheaper than $30

jessiwrites

Oh, that is much more reasonable. $30 is pretty ridiculous. Thanks for the info!

jessi – if we end up placing an order through my tea mule, i’ll see if there’s a way we can figure something out to get stuff over to you.

jessiwrites

Oh, Sil! I would just love you forever. :D

I drink this pretty much every day, and the only reason I continue to log it is because I try to mix it with something new every time.

Today, I blended it with Lemon Lime Cream Tart. I recommend that you all do this as soon as possible. It was delicious.

Hah! I’ll be bringing that for my drive tomorrow :)

I have some flavoured guayusas that I dislike. Perhaps I’ll use them as mix-ins like you do!

Another success for Della Terra – a rooibos tea that doesn’t taste like medicine!

I like that the flavor of this one is a bit softer than the Lemon or Lime Chiffon teas. The cream is very nice, and the orange flavor is sweet and tart and very good. I am looking forward to a second infusion, because I generally prefer the second steep of rooibos teas. So far, this one is a winner.

EDIT: This is delicious as it cools. Gah.

EDIT AGAIN: And the second infusion is delightful. So glad I tried this one. Thank you, Della Terra, for making such great caffeine-free options.

Gahh another DT rooibos for me to try! I’ve loved all of the cream ones so far :D

jessiwrites

This one is a bit more subtle than the others, I think, but still manages to hide the medicinal rooibos taste. It’s quite lovely.

MissLena

It sounds quite delicious :) maybe my palate is untrained for rooibos but I haven’t ever found the medicinal taste it sometimes has, I hope I never find it either :P

jessiwrites

Oh, you are lucky. I found it the first time I ever tried rooibos. I was so disappointed! But Della Terra’s teas seem to cover it up very well.

MissLena

Yeah that might be why I don’t notice it, one of my first rooibos was Lemon Chiffon, along with a few others that were pretty strongly flavored from DAVIDsTEA. Happy you are enjoying it more, it’s a nice non-caffeinated drink! :)

Kittenna

DavidsTea & Della Terra rooibos usually don’t have that gross rooibos flavour, so I think you’ve just been lucky so far, MissLena! You’ll probably run into it eventually though, if you do swaps and such.

Also, glad we picked up 1 oz of this one to split, so I get at least 3 cups worth, haha. Yum!

I really enjoy the blend of white and green tea, it really makes for a very nice balanced base to this tea. I also appreciate the lightness of the flavor, I don’t feel like the creaminess is too heavy or the strawberry too sweet. I do find that the flavor is a bit artificial, but not too much to where I can’t drink it. It’s still a nice blend that I will probably quite enjoy on sunny afternoons.

This might have just become my favorite Della Terra black tea yet. Not that that’s really saying much, since I am not a huge fan of their black teas, but this one is quite fantastic.

The creaminess is absolutely lovely. And I love that the chocolate tastes like dark chocolate, and isn’t overly sweet. I seriously can’t get enough of mint teas, and this is a lovely addition to my collection, since I haven’t found a chocolate mint tea that I really like yet. It even held up to a second steep.

Yum.

jessiwrites

Yep, it’s delicious! :D

This is delicious. I always forget that I have it, since it was one of the first samples Courtney sent me. It’s sweet but light and it’s caffeine-free and since I’m not feeling great, I wanted to stick to no caffeine this evening. This is perfect.

I love this one, especially when I’m feeling under the weather. Hope you feel better!

This was my afternoon dessert tea today. I think it’s one of the better Della Terra blacks, although it is a bit too sweet for me. It’s alright in small doses, I don’t mind that it’s really only good for about 1.5 infusions. I do enjoy the caramel / marshmallow combination, though. Perfect for an afternoon treat.

This didn’t really work for me.

It was on my list to try for a while, and Courtney sent me a sample last week. It was too sweet for me, and I think the overwhelming ingredient list was just too much. It wasn’t horrible, I still drank one cup and re-steeped it, and put the rest in the fridge to try cold… but I am definitely glad I didn’t order 50g.

Thanks for sharing, Courtney!
