576 Tasting Notes
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 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!
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.
