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 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!
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.
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.
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!
