Thanks to The Tea Merchant for offering out the free samples! First of all, I have to say that this tea was shipped in such an elegant manor! I absolutely loved the wax seal, super chic.
As for the tea, visually it is gorgeous. The tea leaves are beautiful and I like the fact that they used what seems to be toasted coconut flakes, as opposed to most coconut teas that are made with just plain raw flakes. It really makes a difference in flavor as well, giving it more of a nutty toasted quality rather than a mouthful of just coconut.
I steeped mine for just a tad over a minute. The package says that 1-3 minutes would work, but I have a terrible habit of over-steeping white teas so I went the “safer” route which worked out well.
As I tried a hot cup this morning, I wanted to give it a shot over ice this afternoon. Did the same for steeping, let the tea cool and then poured it over ice. Very refreshing! The tea flavor comes out a bit more when cold but it leaves a cool crisp flavor that is simply delicious.
Over all, a great coconut white tea.
Thank you to Will Work For Tea for sending me a bit of this to try. This is my first experience with a Lupicia tea and I was excited to get to try it out since I have only even read good things about the company.
This tea reminds me of fresh and delicious strawberry ice cream. (and I didn’t even add cream to mine!) There is a lingering sweetness but also a light green tea crisp flavor that really pairs well in this tea.
I imagine this one is delicious over ice. Next time I make a glass of iced tea I think I will give this one a try again.
Another thanks to Will Work For Tea for sending me this sample. I have wanted to try this tea for a while but for some reason or another have always cut it out when editing my DavidsTea orders. No longer!
This tea is one of the most aromatic teas I have had the pleasure of tasting. As soon as it meets the hot water the room smells like it is filled with fresh blueberry muffins right out of the oven. The blend of ingredients is absolute perfection. Blueberry bliss with just a hint of perfect sweetness.
So glad that I was able to try this out, and I will for certain be adding this to my next tea order.
Thanks to Will Work For Tea for sending me a sample of this. I have to say, it has a strong nutty flavor to it, almost a bit overpowering at times. I am a fan of almonds in general, though am still a bit undecided about how I feel about almond teas. I will say that there is a wonderfully pleasant lingering taste of honey that sticks around long after the last sip of tea that I really enjoy. I have enough to make another cup or so and am going to try to put this one over a bit of ice or add a bit of cream to see how I can better enhance that honey like flavor. Over all a good tea and I am glad to try it. I don’t think I would buy any sort of large amount of it though.
Oolong teas are so addicting! The complex flavors are so intoxicating and this tea falls right into that deliciously flavored oolong journey that these teas are so well known for. The floral notes are definitely there from start to finish but along the way is a deep rich sweetness that is difficult to describe, but yummy all the same. I was able to get three good steeps out of this one, with the third being about 1/3 weaker than the first two. A fourth steep seemed too weak for my tastes. Another great tea from Persimmon Tree.
Della Terra Teas makes the most incredible dessert teas and this one definitely lives up to that.
Pumpkin is one of my absolute favorite scents, almost every single candle in my home is pumpkin scented, as is my lotion and body wash and hand soap.. etc. That being said I have tried a good bit of pumpkin teas and best majorly disappointed in some. Not so with this tea!
Consistant with other Della Terra Teas that I have tried, the aroma of this blend is amazing! Immediately gets your taste buds ready and waiting to taste some of it’s pumpkin spice goodness.
Steep time was 2 minutes and I lightly flavored it with a few rocks of rock sugar.
Flavor was like that of a pumpkin spice cookie. (I have a confession to make, for all my love of pumpkin I do not at all like pumpkin pie, so I can’t compare to the taste of an actual pie). There is a mellow holiday type spice flavor that lingers on the tongue after each sip and the pumpkin flavor is very well rounded. Most of all, this tea is not too sweet or artificial tasting, which I find can be the problem with most holiday sweets type tea blends.
Another great one that has me eager to see what this company puts out this coming holiday season. Gingerbread perhaps…? (hint hint)
What a warm and tingly tea! I have to say this tea turned out much sweeter than I expected. Being a good ol’ southern girl I always add sugar to my tea (rock sugar) and this is one of the few teas I have tried that is sweet enough that I think could stand without any additions.
Brewed at 2 minutes like usual, though I am thinking a longer steep time might warrant a bit more of the spicy notes really being brought to the surface.
Taste-wise this tea comes across as a decadent chocolate black tea. The chili aspect doesn’t come into play for me until the after taste kicks in. Then the heat is noticeable. Each sip warms the mouth and throat and the flavor does build. Not too spicy like some of the chili teas that I have had.
Another great tea, though personally the other two dessert teas I have tried (Chocolate Covered Strawberry and Chocolate Almond Coconut) were much better when compared to this one.
Have you ever had a nice hot cup of divine black tea and paired it with a coconut filled dark chocolate? If so, then you know exactly what this tea tastes like. Della Terra Teas are masters of producing wonderfully fragrant flavored teas. If the gorgeous flaky visual of this tea doesn’t immediately captivate you, then the luscious scent of tropical coconut and sweet almond will.
I did the same steep time as I do most black teas, and the result was perfect. Not too weak and not at all bitter.
Flavor wise, I didn’t sense the almond as much as I thought I would, but if anything that was a good thing. The nutty notes were subtle enough to let the chocolate coconut mix shine.
When it comes to dessert teas, Della Terra does not disappoint. Another fantastic one.
I can’t believe this tea has not been reviewed before and feel completely honored to be the first! I ordered this in the recent “Sample Pack” promo that Della Terra Teas was offering.
Let me just say that this is one of the most intoxicating and deliciously scented teas. Right out of the bag it opens up a world of gourmet chocolate covered strawberry goodness. The quality of the tea is exceptional, and it is a pleasure to see real bits of dried strawberries in the mix. A good proportion of strawberry and chocolate “bits”.
The website recommends a “5 Min” steep time, but I find that to be too long for a black tea, so I went for a 2 minute steep instead. Once again I feel the need to mention just how lovely this tea smells!
Flavor-wise it is perfect for a dessert tea (which are my favorites). I did sweeten it slightly with a bit of rock sugar which really brought out the sweeter more chocolate like notes. The taste of strawberry is sweet and lingering and the blend is just mixed perfectly as to not be too strong flavor wise to hide the taste of a fine black tea.
Della Terra Teas, I feel like we are about to start the beginning of a very long friendship. I have a few more samples to try and have a feeling they are all going to be as fine of quality as this one.
Light and flowery without being too overpowering. I almost get a linger nutty taste, almost like sweetened walnuts. Over all a good tea. Worth trying but not something I would personally buy a decent amount of.
What a beautifully fragrant tea! Right out of the gate you can smell the sweet floral scent on the leaves and upon starting the steep the scent only gets more intense and lovely. I was a bit surprised by how dark this tea brewed, since the flavors were so airy and light. If you have ever had the pleasure of tasting honey suckle on a fine summer’s day then you have an inkling to the relaxing and sweet floral flavors that this tea is all about. The second steep I found to be as strong as the first, though smoother in texture. With the third and fourth steeps the flavor is still there, though a bit weaker with each brewing. Really pleased with this tea.

This tea is another real gem. A delicious gem! I just received this in my Persimmon Tea order today and I have brewed 4 cups in a row of this. FOUR IN A ROW! The second my mug starts to get low I am up and preparing another batch. The guava really seems to bring out the subtle sweetness of the strawberry and the ginger is subtle enough to give you that warm and cozy feeling without spicing up the tea too much or being too over bearing on the white tea flavor. I cannot wait to try this iced, but it seems I have gotten too caught up in brewing cup after cup of it hot and delicious.
If you are thinking about ordering this, do it! Go on! It is 1,000% worth it. One of the best teas I have ever had.
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for letting me try this tea! I was a bit nervous as a lot of cookie type teas I have been trying lately have been major let downs. This tea doesn’t have an obvious cookie scent like some other teas, but boy oh boy does it have the flavor! The sugary almond notes blend so well in this tea, and with a bit of rock sugar it tastes like I’ve frosted the top of the treat! Glad I was able to try it and can’t wait for my next cup. In fact.. I might make another right now!
This tea is a massive let down and tastes like a basic black tea with absolutely nothing else added what so ever. It doesn’t even look like the tea in the photo! Bleh. Oh well.
I am a huge fan of dessert teas and of chai teas as well. Though the white chocolate flavor gets a bit lost in this tea, it’s sweet and spice flavor mix does provide for a delicious cup. I think I will play around with adding a bit more white chocolate or extra milk or even over ice to see how that effects the flavor. There is something really good here, it just needs a bit of love to bring it out more! I’ll post another note once I have mixed it up a bit.
What a dreamy romantic tea! This tea has everything that any rose tea should have. The floral scent and flavor notes are well balanced and the chocolate does not drown out the over all flavor of the black tea. A sweet lovely scented and very flavorful black tea blend.
This tea tastes almost exactly like Jessie’s Tea from David’s Tea. Or at least, close enough that I had to double check to make sure I brewed the right thing. One thing I give this tea that I find hard to say about others is that the hibiscus is not over powering at all, if anything it seems to change the color a bit from that of just a rooibos tea, but flavor wise, the roobois stands out for certain. Over all a good tea.
Going to refrain from giving a rating on this, because the tea wasn’t bad at all, it just wasn’t at all what I expected. Peach Apple Crisp just sounds like it would be more of an almost fall/holiday flavor type tea. The Persimmon Tree website claims that it has “gala apple and cinnamon with a crisp floral finish” flavor note, but I could not taste one fleck of cinnamon or much apple either. If anything the rose makes this taste more along the lines of a slightly fruity flavored rose black tea mix.
I really enjoyed this tea. Have you ever tried matcha green tea ice cream? This tea tastes exactly like a delicious scoop of green tea ice cream with the perfect drizzle of caramel over the top. It is sweet, but not overpoweringly so. A perfect blend of a more dessert style green tea. Was not disappointed.
Let me just start by saying that this is such a pretty tea! It is mild flavor wise, which I enjoyed. Not too sweet or too bland and you can taste the hints of coconut from start to finish.
I’m leaving out a rating because since drinking this I have decided that I just do not like pu-erh teas at all, so I have a pretty biased opinion. I love coconut in a tea blend and based on the ingredients I had hoped to get a new favorite. Unfortunately upon even opening the sample package I thought the tea smelled, well, gross. I wanted to try it anyway, and brewed it up as instructed, but after a sip I couldn’t bring myself to finish the mug. Definitely not at all “my cup of tea.”
This tea is so delicious I am speechless. Seriously. Stop reading reviews and go ahead and order yourself some. It’s like drinking liquid gold… but better.
