2606 tasting notes

Sincere apologies for this bombing of everyone with tasting notes. I’m typing things up as quickly as I can before I forget!

Anyhow, this is by FAR the best marshmallowy/s’mores tea I have had. It tastes like a s’more melted in a cup. The marshmallow is quite obvious, and even before remembering what the tea was, I clearly tasted chocolate. Didn’t really get graham cracker, but I don’t really care for them, so that doesn’t matter! I was much more concerned with the chocolatey marshmallow flavours.

Anyhow, for anyone disappointed in DavidsTea’s Toasted Marshmallow, or Teaopia’s Fireside S’mores, try this!! Definitely another big hit from Della Terra! (Oh, also I set the timer for 4 minutes and definitely went over by 1-2 minutes. Good thing these teas aren’t finicky!)

Yay, put this in my order this morning. :) I actually liked Toasted Marshmallow so this should be great.

The big difference with this one is that there’s no spicing. It’s chocolate and marshmallow. DT’s toasted marshmallow failed for me in that it was heavily spiced with cinnamon. I hope you like it!

Haha, I loved it because of the cinnamon. :) I hope I like it too, I went a bit crazy with Black Friday teas but I haven’t ordered in a while so…

Just ordered 2oz of this! I’m happy you posted all these reviews today as I’d never really heard of Della Terra. Thx!

Awesome! For flavoured teas, they seem to be pretty good, and their blends are unique.

I have always been a tea fan (primarily herbals and Japanese greens/oolongs) but in the last year or so, tea has become increasingly more appealing as not only a delicious, calming drink, but as a relatively cheap, healthy reward or treat to give myself when I deserve something. I should clarify that, however; the reward is expanding my tea cupboard, not drinking tea – I place no restrictions on myself in terms of drinking anything from my cupboard as that would defeat my many goals!

My DavidsTea addiction was born in late 2011, despite having spent nearly a year intentionally avoiding their local mall location (but apparently it was just avoiding the inevitable!). I seem to have some desire to try every tea they’ve ever had, so much of my stash is from there, although I’ve recently branched out and ordered from numerous other companies.

I like to try and drink all my teas unaltered, as one of the main reasons I’m drinking tea other than for the flavour is to be healthy and increase my water intake without adding too many calories! I’ve found that the trick in this regard is to be very careful about steeping time, as most teas are quite pleasant to drink straight as long as they haven’t been oversteeped. However, I tend to be forgetful (particularly at work) when I don’t set a timer, resulting in a few horrors (The Earl’s Garden is not so pleasant after, say, 7+ minutes of steeping).

I’m currently trying to figure out which types of teas are my favourites. Herbals are no longer at the top; oolongs have thoroughly taken over that spot, with greens a reasonably close second. My preference is for straight versions of both, but I do love a good flavoured oolong (flavoured greens are really hit or miss for me). Herbals I do love iced/cold-brewed, but I drink few routinely (Mulberry Magic from DavidsTea being a notable exception). I’m learning to like straight black teas thanks to the chocolatey, malty, delicious Laoshan Black from Verdant Tea, and malty, caramelly flavoured blacks work for me, but I’m pretty picky about anything with astringency. Lately I’ve found red rooibos to be rather medicinal, which I dislike, but green rooibos and honeybush blends are tolerable. I haven’t explored pu’erh, mate, or guayasa a great deal (although I have a few options in my cupboard).

I’ve decided to institute a rating system so my ratings will be more consistent. Following the smiley/frowny faces Steepster gives us:

100: This tea is amazing and I will go out of my way to keep it in stock.

85-99: My core collection (or a tea that would be, if I was allowing myself to restock everything!) Teas I get cravings for, and drink often.

75-84: Good but not amazing; I might keep these in stock sparingly depending on current preferences.

67-74: Not bad, I’ll happily finish what I have but probably won’t ever buy it again as there’s likely something rated more highly that I prefer.

51-66: Drinkable and maybe has some aspect that I like, but not really worth picking up again.

34-50: Not for me, but I can see why others might like it. I’ll make it through the cup and maybe experiment with the rest to get rid of it.

0-33: It’s a struggle to get through the cup, if I do at all. I will not willingly consume this one again, and will attempt to get rid of the rest of the tea if I have any left.
