drank Lime Chiffon by Della Terra Teas
1363 tasting notes

Sipdown! But what a sad sipdown this is. I only had a sample, courtesy of Dexter3657 and that was not nearly enough. This tea is sweet and creamy but has the delicious flavor of lime. It is like a guilt-free bit of key lime pie and it is amazing! Thank you Dexter!! This one will surely be missed until I get some more.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 6 min, 30 sec

VariaTEA

I definitely am too! It is a great tea :)

the two chiffon teas are my favorite della terra besides EGC! yum.

VariaTEA

I haven’t tried the Lemon Chiffon yet but I plan on ordering some in the future

Cavocorax

Mmmm. I love the lime chiffon! If you’re thinking of ordering, wait for Black Friday as they’ll likely have a great sale that weekend. Della Terra was the first company I ordered from online but I couldn’t resist 40-60% off. It was insane.

VariaTEA

haha that is the plan. I am dying for some more carrot cake but I want so much that I feel it is best to wait for a sale

Cavocorax

Yeah, I’m really hoping to get more of that then too. And some Chocolate Pumpkin Pie, and the Raisin Cookie one too.

I’m a little afraid that the ones I want will be sold out though. There are a few teas (like Eight Candles) that I just never seem to get while it’s in stock. :P Fingers crossed!

VariaTEA

I really want to try Eight Candles – it sounds amazing. Hopefully it is in stock when we place an order

Lariel

When does the sale start? I want some holiday teas too.

Cavocorax

I think November 29th for most of the sales – as that’s Black Friday! Keep an eye on the discussions as I’m sure we’ll have a dedicated thread going where we compile them all.

Last year DT had sales all weekend but the best (ie 40-60 off were on Friday)

Lariel

Off 1 ounce or Try Me Samplers?

VariaTEA, if you fail to get some Eight Candles, I’ll save some of mine here for you. I only got a sampler, but it’s enough to share.

VariaTEA

That would be amazing! Hopefully I will be able to get some on my own though so you don’t have to share your sample. I will let you know what happens!

Lariel if I remember the lower discount was across everything ( even gifts), and the higher discount was timed, available at certain times of the day and I think it was only applicable to a certain range of teas). However having said that there is no guarantee that they are planning the same promotion this time.

Bio

After being overweight all my life I finally decided to commit to the long journey of weight loss. When life got too monotonous with all the diet food I decided to try teas in hopes of finding new flavors. I never realized the addiction I would face and now I am in love with all things tea!

However, I am still new to the tea scene and although I have bought many David’s Teas and Teavana Teas I know there is just so much out there to try and I am excited for each and every new experience. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! 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!

Well after over a month on steepster, I have learned many new things about tea and my own personal tastes. 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, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well. Oh and I LOVE Red Leaf Tea’s flavored matcha.

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.

Tea Ratings (a loose guide):
1-15 – This cup is going down the drain
16-30 – I will finish the cup but I am not making another
31-50 – I don’t think I like this but I will try another cup just to be sure
51-60 – I am really on the fence about this tea
61-70 – I like this enough to finish what I have but I won’t be buying it again
71-80 – I like this and will buy it every now and then
81-90 – I really like this and will replace it as soon as I can
91-100 – I LOVE this and will buy more before I run out of what I have so that this is never missing from my cupboard
