I think I finally figured this tea out. I had this yesterday for the record.
In my previous steeps, I didn’t find it flavorful and I was missing the cream cheese frosting bit that everyone raved about. Well, it turns out that whatever Della Terra uses as the “cream flavor and bits” had attached itself in such a way in transit, that it wasn’t allowing it to really detach from the leaves (or something). Because, once I took a spoon and almost roughly swirled the leaves in my steeping mug, lo-and-behold, cream bits suddenly appeared (and dissolved) and I was left with a much more flavorful cup!
I don’t know if it’s worth the effort to make this creamy and so I don’t know if I’ll repurchase, but I’m happy to say that I finally figured out a way to drink this and really enjoy it.
