Gotta say that I’m pretty sad to say that this is a sipdown. This was really a very, very tasty tea. Quite sweet and marshmallowy, and I really think it would be a great addition to my travel mug rotation (which it was in, twice). I am guessing that this tea has been at least temporarily discontinued as it was a holiday tea, but I’m hoping it’s back next year! Yum yum yum.
OMG ever sort of get obsessed with an album or band for a while and just can’t stop listening? I can’t stop listening to Sigur Rós lately. I’m talking ~500 tracks over the past week.
DTT sent me a sample of this and am ever so grateful to try it.
I totally dig the scent of the dry leaf, like a Rolo cappuccino or something. But like with a lot of their flavoured blacks, at least for me so far, it ends up tasting far too sweet. On its own, I taste sugar, sugar, caramel (so basically a different sort of sugar) and a weaker base. I don’t know if it’s me or what, but it reminds me of some of their other flavoured blacks like Dubbele Chocolade or Cafe Vanilla. If I drew a Venn diagram there would be some serious overlapping.
Adding vanilla soy milk makes it better. The caramel is a little more pronounced but I don’t get any distinct marshmallow flavour.
I wanted to try this one.. so this was an obvious choice amongst about 15 other samples from DT. I heard it was like Eight Candles.. which I also wanted to try but haven’t yet. But I thought of a caramel tea this morning and realized I had this to try. It’s marshmallows! Caramel squares! Chocolate! Sprinkles! It seems like the S’mores blend with caramel instead of graham crackers. As it was steeping the marshmallows melted into a foaminess at the top which kind of disappeared as I took the infuser out. This one is delightful. I made sure to get a few marshmallows and at least one caramel square in the infuser. The sugariness made the usual mellow DT black tea leaves even better. I think I noticed more flavor from the black tea itself in this blend. Maybe because the sugar from the ingredients brings the flavor of the black tea out better. LOVE it.
I shared this one a lot, so I’m almost done with my 1oz bag already. It’s quite good for when I want something sweet, it’s a nice balance of flavors and it needs absolutely nothing added to it.
I have noticed that Della Terra blacks definitely benefit from a little shorter steeping time. DavidsTeas usually ask for a steeping time of 4 minutes or so, and that does NOT work for Della Terra.
This tea smells amazing. I got some from AlphaKitty from our meet up swap a while back. I decided to go with a paper filter for this tea since I didn’t feel like cleaning sprinkle gunk off my filter basket today.
The resulting brew is okay, which is a bit of a let down after the amazing scent. I don’t really get chocolate but the marshmallow and caramel are totally there! It has a weird bit of latex aftertaste. And the black base isn’t my favorite, but it’s good enough. Needs a spot of cream to smooth the slight harshness over.
I got this chocolaty tea in a swap with TeaLizzy. I could smell it the second I opened the package and couldn’t resist making it right way. First off, my house smells absolutely amazing now. My mom just walked in to watch the bean while I take the little man to the doctor. He’s had a fever for about 4 days now. She asked me how i found time to make brownies. So, it definitely has a nice aroma.
As far as the flavor. I’m definitely enjoying the cup. I’m glad I got to try this as it’s sold out on the website. I don’t think I’d order it though. It’s actually too desserty for me. I’m not a huge fan of dessert, but I love dessert tea. Strangely enough, this one almost just seems like a dessert instead of dessert tea. So not great for me but any normal person would love this.
Update: I gave my mom a sip of this and she went nutso. I just gave her the rest of my cup. So like I said, any normal dessert lover would love this.
Some days, life is just not fair. Take today for instance, I over leafed my cup, sweetened it nicely, set it to steep, and forgot about it… My precious Love in a Cup, it got bitter on me!! I hate when that happens! This tea is so, so good when it brews right, but it is downright fussy. Still, the taste when things go right is worth all the trouble it takes to brew it!
