I love spiced teas, but I don’t get to drink them very often because of my allergies. They always smell so good and remind me of the holidays. When I saw that Della Terra had released a summer spiced plum I knew I had to try it. Since the new fridge came in yesterday, bright and early at 7am, I was finally able to cold steep something and have it be really cold. I’m excited!
Anyway, I’m excited about this tea as well, when I opened up the package it smelled so good. I couldn’t really detect a plum scent, but all the spices sure were there. Once steeped I noticed something, my tea shimmered, not sparkled, but shimmered very faintly as the light hit it. It was very pretty, somewhat mesmerizing, and temporarily distracted me from tasting my tea.
The tea itself was very spicy and I didn’t notice a plum flavor to it, just a slight sweetness every once in awhile. This may be because I cold steeped it and the spices took over. I wish I had saved enough of this one to find out if it would taste any different hot, but I used the whole try me sized package for my cold steep. I thought this was a very yummy tea, but wish the plum would have stood out above the spices.
