Yay for getting used to the new Steepster changes. I think overall, with a few tweaks here and there, the improvements will be well worth the short term pain. It also means i’m likely to become OCD about adding flavours and such to the teas that i log lol Ah well, it’s a good thing, right? :) Still enjoy this one, though i’m fine with only drinking it once a year for a few cups. That’s all i need of this one in the long term.

Flavors: Cream

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

YES: The OCD will be a hard thing to deal with! :P Every tea I log will have to be updated in the database with ingredients etc now!

Sil

haha yeah

Shmiracles

it’s cuz they KNOW we are THOSE TYPE of ppl! hahah we are all some version of OCD and just nerdy enough and super probably-caffeinated driven to not be able to resist adding ALL the details. and adding all the details of all the details! they slowly stroked their goatees and shifted their eyes saying “they will work for free, they won’t be able to resist! and they will LOVE it bwahaha”

Terri HarpLady

Personally, I’m not into filling out forms, adding little details, etc., & little Terri is more into playing music, coloring pictures, food, & playing in the dirt. Of course we all adore tea, but on the rare day that Ms. Theresa gets ahold of things….well, let’s just say that THAT woman is one OCD, detail driven, perfectionistic, web designing, organizing, form filling out freak. So anything could happen.

Brewed this up this morning to try and get through as many Della Terra teas as possible quickly! I have… 17, so it will take a while…

Anyways, this one smells delicious! I brewed it up (and it’s been steeping for hours, I used my Timolino infuser basket) and it also tastes delicious! A very good flavoured rooibos. Nothing medicinal, only pure sweetness and creaminess. I will admit that it does not quite taste like eggnog to me :( however, it’s caramelly sweet (akin to DavidsTea’s Creme Caramel rooibos), with some creaminess, and then a hint of spice. It’s really quite delicious. An absolutely perfect caffeine-free dessert tea, even for those who aren’t too keen on rooibos! I’m getting a little worried that by the end of my Della Terra tasting spree, I will want to purchase bags of everything … the only teas I haven’t been super keen on so far are Saveur de Paris (just not unique enough), and Chocolate Almond Coconut, which was ok in flavour but quite weak (and besides, I have some of that one left).

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more
Kiaharii

Glad to hear this is good, I ordered this too. :)

Kittenna

I’m really impressed with this one. A rooibos in a flavour I don’t already have multiples of! Upped the rating because… yum…

Cavocorax

Mmmmm. I wasn’t planning on buying anything today, but I ended up getting this during their sale. Thanks for the rec!

Tea Sipper

Yeah, I pretty much want to buy full bags of everything I had samples of… three try me packs. uh oh.

Cavocorax

Uh-oh. That’ll add up quick. Hopefully tomorrow’s sale is comparable to Friday’s.

On the Eleventh Day of Christmas, Della Terra Teas sent me this tea!

http://sororiteasisters.com/2012/12/24/on-the-eleventh-day-of-christmas-della-terra-teas-sent-to-me/

I liked this more than I expected to. My biggest hang up with it – before tasting it – was that I was sure it wouldn’t have a creamy texture that I felt an egg nog would need. Rooibos tends to feel rather thin on the palate, and it’s hard to get that creamy feel with rooibos. And while this IS a little lighter in the texture department when compared to some of the other eggnog inspired teas that I’ve tried this holiday season, for a rooibos this is surprisingly creamy. The creaminess is primarily in the flavor but some of it translates into the mouthfeel as well.

And I liked the way the nutty notes of the rooibos tasted with the sweet nog flavors. It was really quite enjoyable.

sip down!

This was good and totally a wintery tea. I like the light spice and creamyness. I made this as a nice latte for a post workout treat.

Good chance I’ll snag this again around the fall season. I got a Della Terra order coming – I can’t waiiiiit!

Rooibos and cinnamon go together so well. It may not be winter but I craved a big mug of this today and I’m glad I did. :)

I heard you like eggnog, so I put your eggnog in your eggnog tea so you can drink eggnog while drinking eggnog tea…(sorry).

Half completed experiment last night where I put eggnog in this, as I felt it wasn’t quite eggnoggish enough. However, after making it I decided I wanted to sleep instead and placed the cup in the fridge. Result? Not bad. Cold, creamy, somewhat eggnoggish spiced rooibos that tastes like it has alcohol in it.

I think I prefer it on its own. That way I can appreciate how naturally creamy and spiced it is, even if it doesn’t taste quite like eggnog.

The snowflake sprinkles are cute!

Sipdown! Finished up the last of this yesterday evening. It’s the tea from last year’s Della Terra Christmas box that I kept returning to the most, so I think I can probaby say it was my surprise favourite. I love the creaminess, and the hint of eggnog. As winter teas go, it’s pretty perfect in my estimation. Definitely one I’d seek out again next year.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp

After a lovely bout of phone anxiety, it is time to write this note from last night.

I love the snowflake sprinkles in this, they are so cute and festive. I steeped this up for about 10 minutes or so.

It’s a bit more like a spiced caramel creme to me than eggnog, but that’s okay. It’s still very tasty. There’s also an almost buttery taste to it, but it’s just overall not too much like custard. I mostly get cinnamon, I really have no idea what “nog spices” are other than nutmeg? I just looked up an article where some eggnog know-it-all says cinnamon and clove are unnecessary to eggnog, because clearly everyone should just suck it up and follow tradition. Jerk.

I’d love to try this as a latte. It’s also not super rooibos tasting so that’s another plus.

Thanks to KittyLovesTea for this one – and so many others I can’t wait to try!

I’m personally not a fan of eggnog, but perhaps I will like eggnog flavoured tea :) It does smell like eggnog. Like spicy eggnog. That must be the cinnamon.

Well it has that bizarre “medicinal” rooibos taste I can’t shake, but the aftertaste is quite nice. It’s reminding me of something I can’t quite put my finger on…

I’m still stuck on that ‘medicinal’ taste, too. Sigh. I want to like rooibos, because I need caffeine-free evening teas! And I am also not a fan of eggnog.

Courtney

I know what you mean. I really love my herbals and greens for the evenings. Toasted Walnut, Hot Lips (though I’m wary too much of this one will wear it out for me so I’m careful), Genmaicha, Luscious Watermelon, Mulberry Magic, and Forever Nuts (similar to Hot Lips I’m careful with this one – too much can be a bad thing) – these are all great for the evening – I definitely recommend :)

Courtney

And Lime Gelato! That is one of my all-time favs.

jessiwrites

Excellent! I just ordered Lime Gelato, Hot Lips and Forever Nuts, and I do enjoy Toasted Walnut quite a bit. I also ordered Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, which sounded lovely. Genmaicha is super tempting, I am definitely considering getting some on my next order.

Courtney

Genmaicha wasn’t one I was expecting to like and even after so many cups of it I can’t tell you what it is I like about it haha! Maybe that it’s just a nice simple tea. Good choices for sure :)

jessiwrites

Thanks! The others on my order are Ceylon Star, Merry Cranberry, and Cookie Dough. It just shipped today, and it`s supposed to arrive on the 14th. Happy Valentine`s Day to me!

Courtney

Hahah I enjoyed both Merry Cranberry and Cookie Dough. Enjoy!

Had a cup of this with some pumpkin fudge….oh yeah! I was so enjoying the fudge, I totally forgot I didn’t finish my cup, so I drank the last 2/3 of it lukewarm. Oh well, still good. This doesn’t really taste like eggnog to me, but it’s definitely a creamy spice tea. I’ve really been into the flavored rooibos teas lately. I think when the weather is cold, I’m more apt to go for something in the evening, and these hit the spot!
