I don’t understand what went wrong with this tea. I bought it expecting a chocolate and cream Earl Grey. Instead it tastes like a slightly sweet lapsang.

The other disappointing thing is that listed on the bag is black tea, bergamot oil, and chocolate. There’s also a ton of sprinkles of various types in here but they aren’t listed. There’s also some weird dried small flower I guess? There is chocolate in the form of very small chocolate chips.

And it does taste smoky. I don’t like it. And it isn’t what I ordered. No chocolate, not really any bergamot either.

Just wanted to edit this to note that Della Terra brought it back according to their FB page and properly marked it this time. It DOES contain lapsang souchong, and I’m pretty disappointed that they didn’t feel the need to say anything about that anywhere in the description? Black tea is one thing, lapsang is like, another thing entirely if you’re a person like me who can’t stand it.

I’ve properly labeled my bag now and I’ve stuck it in traveling tea box A so if it gets to Sil with it still in there, hopefully it can find its way then to Kittenna LOL or if anyone else gets it along the way it has two warnings of containing lapsang souchong.

Did you end up getting a response from DTT? I don’t like complaining, but damn, I don’t know how I’m going to get through my 1 oz. bag.

Not yet, completely forgot about it until I saw your note

Momo. Sorry! We didn’t get a message from you concerning the tea. :( I did make sure on Facebook to explain the issue. A miscommunication between the blender and the webmaster. Our mistake and we will make sure anyone that ordered the tea before we fixed the mistake will get a credit to their account if they would like. Make sure you send us an email to sales@dellaterrateas with your first and last name so we can do that for you! Thanks. :)

Kittenna

Wooo, sounds great to me, momo! If someone beats me to it, that’s totally ok, but whatever’s left will be removed when it makes it to Sil :) Since I only picked up a Try Me of this one, and did like it, I’m fine with vacuuming up other people’s leftovers, haha.
