Really? No notes for this one? Well I received a free sample of this with my last order. The aroma of this tea is very rich. The flavor is pretty creamy with vanilla. My boyfriend mentioned that it tasted like cream soda. It’s a pretty simple blend but it’s delicious when done right. Thank you Della Terra!

Cream soda?! Oh goodness now I want to try this one, but I can’t drink rooibos much. First world tea problems.

It’s definitely one of the better vanilla rooibos blends that I’ve had. I haven’t really been a rooibos fan but Della Terra is changing my mind lately :]

That sounds delicious.

It does sound good!

Thank you to Della Terra for sending me a free sample of this! The aroma of this tea reminds me of Green Goddess from Tea Grotto(they pretty much have the same ingredients..). I’ve never had much luck with back and green blends… So fingers crossed I steeped this right…
This tastes EXACTLY like Green Goddess. But it has more of a darker note to it. I’m betting it’s the touch of black tea. Which is actually a nice touch… It adds something to the fruitiness of this tea.

I got this as a free sample with my last Adagio order. The dry leaf smells like potatoes… But after it’s brewed the aroma turns to roasted marshmallows and baked sweet potatoes. It reminds me of the sweet potatoes we have at Thanksgiving. This tea is very different but I kind of like it. But… Now I’m craving sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top D:

This tea smells SOOO strongly of blueberries. Absolutely delicious :] Brewed it smells like blueberry pie and ice cream. The flavor is not as in your face as the aroma… It’s very mellow. The blueberry and vanilla come through very nicely. I can’t really taste the pomegranate but that’s ok. I REALLY like this tea.

Sore throat getting worse D: I found this in my remedies collection so I thought I’d give it a shot. What’s that familiar taste? The flavor that makes me feel like I’m at the dentist…. GASP CLOVE D: nooooooooo

Got this as a nice sample with my last order. It smells AMAZING! I was expecting this to be super sweet and strong but it’s perfect in flavor. The flavor is right on and light enough where I can taste the oolong base. The orange and caramel are the first flavors to come out. After that I can taste a little of the oolong base. The smooth cream\orange flavor kind of lingers in the aftertaste. This tea is magnificent. Definitively going to order some more. YUUMMMMMMM

Thank you Ellyn! I think this is the tea I received in the swap. Well today has been very interesting and long. This tea is nice. The bergamot is actually quite light. This is a very light tasting tea. I’m getting some floral notes. I enjoyed this! Thank you.

I thought since this was a pretty tea it had to be served in a pretty tea pot. Well… I’m using my favorite blue, handmade teapot with cherry blossoms on it. Fingers crossed I don’t break it. Usually it’s just for show but I though why not?
The aroma of this tea is nice. To me it tastes like the standard Earl Gray. There is a bit of a warmer tasting note to it. It’s good but over all I don’t really see anything super special about this tea.

it’s good to prepare tea for oneself in pretty dishes, you should do more often :)

KallieBoo!

I’m just afraid I’ll break it! I bought it for $40 at a local tea shop and I know if I break it I’ll never find another one D:

Still battling my almost cold. So far I’ve stayed on top of it so it’s just stayed as a little cough and scratch throat.
I totally forgot that I had this so I made it as a bedtime cup. It’s very nice. I don’t ever remember tasting this much ginger in it but I’m ok with it. Now for some sleep! Goodnight Steepster!

Oooohh my goodness gracious this tea smells amazing. It’s so tart and dessert like. The flavor isn’t as strong as I thought it was going to be. There is a nice citrus taste and the cream is a lovely touch. It really does taste like a liquid cream tart. I’m happy it’s a rooibos base. It just works really well.

Bio

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
