I almost didn’t order this because of the Silver dragées in it, I really don’t want tea that sparkles, and I don’t think they really add anything to the flavor of the tea. Honestly, I’d rather see them on my christmas cookies than in my tea. I went ahead and ordered it anyway because I love apricot and thought this would make a good iced tea. Funny enough, it’s August and I’m hardly drinking any iced tea, the high here has been in the low 70s so I’ve switched back to hot tea because our low temps have been in the low 50s. Very odd summer weather…

While I think that Della Terra has a lot of really tasty teas and I’m a huge fan I think I may stop ordering peach/apricot flavored teas from them. Is it just me, or do they all taste pretty much the same? I cold steeped this wasn’t nearly as sweet as when I tried it hot so that was a definite plus. The apricot flavor misses the mark a bit, it just doesn’t taste anything like the apricots I had for breakfast this morning, but it isn’t the worst apricot flavoring I’ve tasted. Overall I feel pretty meh about this one.

Bio

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Butiki, Della Terra, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Verdant, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

Ingredients I’m on the fence about:
Pu-erh

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Allergies
Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
