290 Tasting Notes


I received my matcha order & decided I wanted to mix 2 flavours. Hello Cookies & Cream Cheescake.

So I mixed roughly equal part cookies & cream matcha & cheesecake match.
Although I definetly got some sweetness (didn’t add anything), I’m not positive how I feel about this one.

Neither flavour stands out & there is an almost alcohol tasting quality to it. :/ It’s creamy & dessert tasting as well, but not as much as I hoped from other reviews. I dunno, hopefully I have better luck trying them seperately.

received this in a swap from nwolf

if anyone could see me right now theyd think I was nuts, sitting here with my nose in the cupand my eyes closed… and yea my mouth is watering from the amazing smell.
this smells so much like strawberry rhubarb pie it’s freaky.
I can taste delicious tart rhubarb & sweet juicy strawberry. Not getting any parfait taste or pie taste, but pure pie filling. ermahgerd!! so freaking good.

I wonder what this would taste like mixed with Della Terra’s Oatmeal rasin cookie. that may give it the bakeyness needed to taste pie. maybe the next one.

I bought this as one of the teas for the participants in the 12 days of Christmas swap.
I had tried this mixed with the maple bacon tea. it was unique.
today I brewed it up on it’s own. my first sip tasted just like pancake, but not any pancake, you know when there is slightly too much butter in the pan & the edges of a pancake are almost deep fried? Crunchy, buttery & bakey yummy yum yum
if you’ve never had a pancake like this, go, now & make some. My grandmother use to make all pancakes this way.
it’s strange the flavour throughout didn’t come through the rest of my mug.
I got a mostly black tea flavour with maple & occasionally some pancake flavour.

oh lemon, my mom & I make these lemon squares that are so good.
and my local tea house carries these ridiculously amazing lemon squares omg. they are my weakness.
this tea smells just like bakey, lemon goodness.

I thought I had reviewed this the first time I drank it… oops must have forgot. I received this in one of my orders as a sample. I’ve ordered from Della Terra about 3 times in 3 months. Love them!!!
this isn’t quite as tart & lemony as the first time I had it, probably not even leaves.
I’m not sure I get a whole lot of bakey goodness in this one, more like a creamy lemon.

this is part of my sipdown which I was suppose to do yesterday, but hey I was dying in hangover city & although the tea would have helped I had no energy to make any.

Backlog from yesterday, this is the third tea that I received with day 3 for the 12 days of Christmas.
ahhhh so much tea to get through.

This smelt nice creamy, vanillaey but also floral like. I really don’t like floral flavours.
once steeped it smells quite floral.
definitely not a tea for me, but glad to try it.

I received this in a swap from reasoned_melody
it probably isn’t one I would have chosen for myself, but that’s what’s so great about swaps & the little extras.
I really enjoyed this, I brewed it hot, but probably would enjoy it cold even more so.
it’s fruity, sweet, tart & spicy… but just to say you get the spices which is great.
it reminds me a lot of vampire voodoo from The Tea Store in Ottawa.

very yummy!!

drank Cookie Dough by DAVIDsTEA

Received this in a swap from reasoned_melody

Wanted to try this for a while, but with no DAVIDsTEA within a bussing distance I had to wait.
The dry leaves smell just like cookie dough…. mmmmmm
This tea is scrumptious. It tastes JUST like cookie dough with chocolate chips. How they do this with the ingredient list is beyond me. So freakin good!

I’ve kinda newly ventured into oolongs, after a recommendation from my local tea house.
This is good, creamy, slightly banana tasting & green tasting. (Although not earthy like the last oolong I had), It’s very green tasting, like a not quite ripe banana.
This is super nice, but not quite enough banana taste, but still a really great delicious tea. Probably one I will order!

I LOVE this tea.

As a recommendation from my tea ladies I gave this one a try, it’s a new one.
this is spool amazing. creamy, nutty, caramelly and so beautifully earthy at the end of the sip. This may be my absolute favorite tea ever.
I’ve had it twice since Monday & bought a bag.
I think my favorite part of this tea is the earthiness. it’s quite spectacular.
must try more flavored oolongs.


This sounds quite amazing!

I finally got around to trying this. It was part of my black Friday order.

This smells very rooibos like in the leaves. Rooibos can be so hit or miss, I can smell the ginger mostly & kind of some fruityness.
Once steeped this smells bakey & cookie like, and mostly like ginger. This is really yummy. I don’t really think it tastes like a ginger snap. I expect a ginger snap to he spicy, gingeree & cinnamonee. I remember sucking on ginger snaps until they would melt. Yum.

Although not at all what I expected this is really delicious & cookie like, just not a ginger snap.
