I’m torn – is this my fave Della Terra Tea or is Eight Candles?! I can’t decide. Regardless, this is a cupboard essential. If you love cinnamon, this is your tea. I used to be able to stand Bigelow’s Cinnamon Stick, but after having this, I say, “Where is my cinnamon, b**ch!” ;)
The Pop Rocks just make it that much more, well, rockin’!
This is a weird one for me. I love how it smells when it’s dry and as it’s brewing. It really does smell like a spa – soothing, sensual, relaxing. (Or I’m assuming that’s what a spa smells like, this tomboy hasn’t ever been in a real one.)
But the second I sip it, all I can taste is…rose. I hate roses – most flowers, really, although I’m not anti-floral with my tea. But I really have a deep dislike of roses – the smell mainly.
I’m going to keep working with this one. I’ve tried it on two different steeping temps and I’ll keep working my way down to “delicate” at 150 degrees. Here’s hoping…
I love this tea! I can’t get enough. So creamy, rich, yummy, cake-y, marshmallow-y.
OK no more typing, just enjoying!
Brewed this up since I didn’t really know what I wanted. It’s spicy and fragrant, often each sip seems different. I’m liking this more so I upped the rating slightly.
HAPPY! I love this tea. :) :)
I purchased this in my recent Della Terra Teas order. Well, technically, I didn’t – I forgot it, but I called them and they added it to my order. Yay! Love great customer service!
This tea is tied with Eight Candles as my fave Della Terra Tea. I love anything cinnamon and the Pop Rocks just makes the flavor that much more rockin’.
I actually wrote a short story in college that included a tea cafe in which the owners added cinnamon to every dish. Yeah, I love it that much. :) The tea cafe was just a setting, not integral to the story, but I’ve always wanted to add it to a future story. What was it called? Cinnamon’s! Of course!
It’s going to be an insane morning and since I didn’t sleep at all last night (thanks, Migraine named Evil) I need loads of caffeine. This will be my best buddy today.
No rating as it’s my own blend. Please see other notes; this is a fave. Also goes great with gaming! :)
For my 500th tasting note, I opted for this one from my most recent Della Terra Teas order.
I’m upping the rating. This cuppa is fresher and much more delish than the already awesome one I had before. It does taste like s’mores! Chocolate, marshmallow and graham cracker with half the calories…and no allergic reaction for me!
This is really a comforting cuppa. I had a bit of a headache as I started enjoying it and it went away. Maybe it was the childhood memories associated with this aroma, or maybe it’s just pure bliss. Either way, thanks Della Terra Teas! :)
This is interesting. Very flavorful and tastes as good or as unique as it smells dry, and as it brews. There is a weird raisin-y taste to it as it cools. I’m not too “keen” (sorry) on that flavor, but the spiciness almost overtakes it.
But do I like it? I’m not sure. I’ll have to keep trying this one. It’s almost too many different spices competing for best taste to enjoy.
Picked this up last night while introducing a friend to the awesomeness that is Voila. This is a mighty spice cuppa, which I love! It’s wintery and comforting, warming and Christmas-y. I taste cloves and nutmeg plus cinnamon and cardamom. It’s like a chai without being in-your-face chai. Not sure if I would drink this all the time, but it’s definitely a must have for winter.
This is just a friendly tea! Just makes me smile! It’s packed with flavors, yet still tastes happy. A hint of cherry and almond, with a hint of something sweet – maybe honeyed almond? It’s aptly named and appetizingly delish!
I’m confused. I thought I was drinking tea, not mango juice! This is really delish, but I don’t know how to rate it.
It’s tropical, fruity and definitely mango-y with a hint of ginger and spice. It’s quite tasty, just not really very much like tea. I don’t taste any tea at all, oolong or otherwise. Bet this would be great iced too. Hmm.
Starting my afternoon off with this, as I’ve got a headache edging into migraine territory and an important meeting in a bit. Still love it!
I’m upping the rating on this one. I brewed up my sample over the weekend – drank all of it actually! Wish I had purchased the Maharaja Chai too…my fail. Anyway, I let this steep for the length of the cup, which was well beyond Teavana’s parameters. Like my other fave chai combo, this resulted in a flavorful, spicy cuppa; in a word, delish! I reinfused the leaves once and as a result really stretched the length of that sample. I left the sugar in there; I was replaying Fallout: New Vegas and needed the extra energy!
This is the one I forgot to reorder today! Boo! I will call to see if I can add it.
I love, love this one. Easily one of the best cinnamon teas out there!
I just ordered more of this, to take advantage of the sale and satisfy my craving. I just love this! As it brews, you’re treated to a wonderful caramel marshmallow aroma – and it tastes just as good as it smells. Love the little sprinkles (of course) and the gold pearls (also, of course). I left this steeping longer than I would’ve normally as I got called away, but when I returned this still tasted awesome.
Awesomeness, that sums up Della Terra Teas! :)
Need a kick-start today (or a kick in the behind). Had a migraine all last night and still have a bit of “migraine fog.” This little number is helping! No rating as its my own.
It’s been a while since I had this tea, but I purchased more from Teavana today and figured I would use up what I had left (which wasn’t much).
I don’t know why I stopped drinking this – it’s so yummy. I know it’s not for everyone, but as I’m learning I don’t care for lots of white teas, I find I do really enjoy this one. It’s very fragrant and full-bodied. Love how it smells dry and while steeping. Now I need my order to get here fast, I’m back on the bandwagon!
I really enjoyed this cuppa. It’s refreshing and kinda fun too. I taste candy cane and a hint of chocolate and vanilla. Wish this was a permanent one but I’m guessing it’s seasonal? Regardless, it was fun and delish! :)
I really enjoy this cuppa. I just placed a small order from Teavana (haha, seriously, the items were all on sale) and I thought about getting more of this one, but couldn’t find it. Oh well. Accidentally Awesome from Adagio custom blends is pretty close.
This is a perfect blend of vanilla, mint and chocolate. Each flavor can be tasted in each sip. It’s quite delish – and very satisfying for people cutting calories!
Still have some of this one left. It’s pretty good – fruity and fun. Please see other notes.
I’m normally not an Earl Grey fan (too much watery fruit loops, IMO). But I’m trying to be more tolerant, so I opted for this in the vanilla version. I really enjoyed this! The vanilla cut that bergamot taste and was quite pleasant. I’d buy this again.
Working on Dec. 26 (and not being Jewish) seems totally inhumane! ;) I needed a little something extra to go with my breakfast of blueberries (OK, and I’m totally going to eat the butterscotch krumpets…I’ll worry about a diet in 2013… and I’m eating blueberries to cancel it out anyway!)
This fit the bill. It’s perfect for a snowy AM like today. I love snow – when it doesn’t affect my driving, and other drivers are either off the road or able to cope like me. :)
Now how to get thru the rest of the day??!
