bluebelle’s tasting note inspired me to make myself a cup of this delicious blend!

This particular cup came to me courtesy of QueenOfTarts however I also picked up a sample in my BF order. So I am pretty much stocked. Not to mention the 2oz of Lime Chiffon I grabbed in the same BF order. So basically I have a seemingly endless supply of Della Terra chiffons and I am 100% okay with that!

This cup in particular I botched up a bit. I accidentally steeped for the whole 5 minutes as opposed to my usual 2 (I thought rooibos and then thought that takes a while and then remembered that isn’t typically the case with this but whatever because what is done is done). Consequently, this is more rooibos flavored than usual and less creamy lemon goodness. At least Della Terra’s rooibos base is not too bad to sip on so I am still enjoying the cup regardless of my mistake.

Thanks QueenOfTarts!

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.
