Guess I never came back to write something about this tea. I’m sick. It’s official. Staying home today and refusing to do work. Not that I’ve been able to sleep but whatever. Made myself a cup of this as it was basically the first one in my sample basket that I touched.

This is actually an alright tea. My main problem with della terra, besides teh chocolate Thing is that I seem to only be able to get a tasty cup when I double up on the leaf. Even then it’s still a fairly average cup of tea when I compare it to something like butiki’s flavoured teas. Do I like della terra better than say David’s Tea or Adagio? Omg yes! But I still feel like most of their tea is good for that initial “looking for sometif fun to drink occasionally” rather than a “here’s a staple I always want in my cupboard” if that makes sense. So sample sizes for me seems to be the way to go! Tank goodness for try me packs!

As for this tea? It’s on the better end :) there’s a nice creamy caramel flavour that’s going on without any weird astringency. I know my nose etc is all stuff up but this is good.

Wishing you speedy recovery! Agree with you that there is a difference between a tea that’s fun to try versus one you want to have around to drink regularly. Samples are fantastic and I’ll be much more likely to try a new company if it offers them. Teavivre, Butiki, Harney&Sons, Simpson & Vail, Golden Moon and Teajo are all companies I have been lured to partly because of the opportunity for well-priced sample sizes. Best is when every tea is offered in a sample size, but I also appreciate the companies who throw in a freebie or 2 with your order.

There’s a thread on the discussion board about dessert teas which made me think about this tea. Then I realized it’s been quite a long time since I’ve had it, so tonight while the rest of my family had their snacks I made a mug of this. After adding cream and sugar I had a smooth, sweet treat that tasted a lot like a praline minus the nuts. Good stuff.

This sounds really good!

Yum! This one’s pretty tasty, but very basic. Just a black tea with caramel. Much like Weeping Angel, actually, but the base is definitely more resistant to turning bitter, and the caramelly flavour is not as pronounced. This would be good in the travel mug in the morning, but as I only have a sample, that may only happen once :)

No No No… (for some reason I’ve got an earworm to the tune of Rehab today)
Anyhow. I was so excited to try this! Then I opened the packet and… it smelled like vanilla??? not in a good way. Such a turnoff.
Thus, I tried adding milk and sugar, and that made it barely drinkable. Finished my cuppa but I’m not sure why…
Bleh. I guess I don’t like the DT caramel flavouring then huh! :(

Sil

Yeah chocolate and caramel from della seem to be not what I like either

Made this for myself while trying to meet my fluid goal for the week (which runs Wednesday through Tuesday this month) and to stay up for the eclipse that’s in a little over an hour which hopefully won’t be blocked by clouds like it was when I checked half an hour ago.

This tastes darker than I remember. Burnt caramel is still present and the base is quite strong but it’s not as sweet, perhaps I’m not using as much sugar? It’s nice but not lovely. I’d drink again but I"m not sure I’d buy it. It was pleasant for this evening though. And it stood up to being microwaved when I forgot it pretty well.

I use tea as my main form of hydration, too. 3L+ a day is a lot of tea…..

Today is a perfect tea-day! Well I guess pretty much every day is, but today especially. It’s all cool and blustery and rainy, and on top of that my orders from Della Terra and Red Leaf both came! YAY!

So after making the trek to the post office after class, this is the first one I’m trying. I was a little bit nervous to try this one, since caramel can be hit or miss for me and there weren’t any tasting notes yet. But I have faith in Della Terra, and for good reason! This is good. Like, really good.

The dry leaf smells strong and rich, almost coffee-like, with a great burnt sugar caramel note. It smells sweet, but not overly so.

Brewed up, it’s nice and thick and rich. Prominent black tea base with that dark, luscious caramel aroma wafting up at me. It’s lovely as is, and retains that coffee-like quality. Drinking it unsweetened I get that burnt sugar goodness full on. A bit of sugar softens it up and gives it a totally different character. A little milk brings out the creamy caramel goodness, and makes it taste like there are melted kraft caramels in my cup!

Glad I grabbed a little pouch of this..it was a pleasant surprise.

Della Terra Teas

Thank you! That’s the exact same thing we noticed in tasting… The burnt sugar flavor without adding a sweetener. Delicious :)

Thank you so much for this one, Tasty Brew! I’m amazed you managed to send only one tea that I’ve tried before (Della’s Dubbele Chocolade)! I still wanted a caramel fix since the last tea I had that promised to be caramel wasn’t so caramely! This one features the mild Della Terra black tea base with caramel cubes. I steeped for a while to try to get the caramel flavor melted a bit more. (I don’t think you can oversteep Della’s black tea anyway – it never gets astringent!) The flavor is sweet, not so noticeably caramel, but maybe I let the water cool too long while picking out a tea that would pair well with my cake. Dessert tea with dessert! I hardly ever go wrong with Della Terra…

This is a good tea! Smells wonderful. Not sure if I’ll order it though. I think David’s Salted Caramel is still my favorite. But I’m enjoying this and will definitely go through the rest of my sample.

3/4 so far. I think I have 1 more in me for today. After that I may be dessert tead out. But a 75% approval rating is pretty good!

Sipdown!

Made this last night – I had too much left for one cup but not enough for two, so I overleafed it, hoping it would just be extra flavorful. It was.

This is actually a pretty decent caramel black tea! Worth trying, if you’re into that sort of thing.

It brews up nice and rich and takes perfectly to a good splash of milk. Good dessert tea.

The caramel scent from the dry tea on this is really strong – I almost want to describe it as dark? It’s a delicious smell though!

I got this one as a free sample along with one of my try-me packs, which I’m very glad for! It seems like I’ve loved the randomly chosen free samples even more than many of those I selected myself. I didn’t notice any of the caramel chunks in my sample, but it doesn’t seem at all hindered by that.

When brewed, it tastes noticeably sweet (though I didn’t add anything to it) and caramel-y, but the black tea is at the front. I think a single word to describe this tea, for me, would be “comforting” – especially when combined with the warm, caramel smell that this fills the room with. It probably helps that my first taste of it was a shared pot between me, my mom and my younger sister. It has something that reminds me of mornings in general. I think I’ll save my last cup of it for one of the upcoming near-freezing mornings.
