Thanks Dexter3657 for this sample!!

This is an interesting tea for sure. It actually does smell like peanut butter to me. When I tried it for the first time I tasted some peanut butter but it almost tasted burnt to me. However, upon my next few tries I realized it wasn’t burnt and I began to taste the chocolate notes a bit more. All in all, I think this is a good cup of tea and I am glad I have enough of it to enjoy another cup (maybe then I will be able to fully wrap my head around it).

ETA: I resteeped this one and whatever I did not like in my very first sip seemed to intensify during the second steeping. I ended up throwing the cup down the drain.

Any idea whether this was renamed on the Della Terra site? I tried looking for some to throw in a sampler, but I couldn’t find it (though I swear it was there just a few weeks ago) :S

VariaTEA

yeah I checked the site too and can’t find any

Dexter

Hmmm… I ordered that in my massive September binge buy – but you are correct it’s gone :((

Roswell Strange

Blah. That’s a shame. It’s one I was really curious about.

Dexter

I don’t have any more to send you. I only got it in a sampler and drank half and sent the other half to VariaTea….

Roswell Strange

Don’t worry about it at all. I’m just going to blindly hope that they’re tweaking the blend or renaming it or something – and it’ll be back on the site eventually for me to try. But it’s really not a big deal – there’s way too many things I want to try anyway, so it’s probably a good thing (financially, anyway).

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
