Della Terra I think I love you
But what am I so afraid of?
I’m afraid that I’m not sure of
A love there is no cure for

(I will elaborate when I get home :) )

EDIT

Ok, so this is pretty tasty. Reminds me of Davidstea Cookie Dough a bit, but less fussy. I was surprised at the decent sized leaves, and it actually tasted like white chocolate! For reals! I am becoming acquainted with Della Terra’s simpler offerings lately (such as this, Dubbele Chocolade, Cafe Vanilla) and am loving them. No need to get all fancy when your flavoring is this tasty and well balanced! That’s what I like about Della Terra. They deliver. There’s nothing worse in my book than calling something “Chocolate Marshmallow Tea” (just made that up) and leaving me smacking my mouth together obnoxiously trying desperately to taste the chocolate or the marshmallow. That never happens with Della Terra, they promise flavour, and they deliver. I wish they would just open up a real live store in my little Canadian city so I could get a job there and drink free tea all day. Totally would.

Sorry, tangent. So anyway, this is tasty, simple but effective. I might prefer it over the fussiness of Davidstea’s Cookie Dough. I’ll probably order some. Thank you Alysha for letting me try this one!

Hello!

So here’s where I am now. I had jumped head first into the world of teas after Davidstea opened in my city a number of years ago. I gave up coffee and became a huge tea freak. From there I joined Steepster and started ordering teas online like a madwoman (not that anyone here would know what that’s like…)

I was swappin’ up a storm and drinking like 6-7 cups a day and I had this tremendous stash to get through…..then. I got pregnant in Spring 2013 and my baby played a funny little joke on me by turning me into someone who had zero interest in drinking or even smelling most teas. I wanted only coffee all the time which was hilarious because of course you can’t really do more than a cup a day when you’re pregnant.

Anyway. In December 2013 I had my baby girl, and now I’m on maternity leave and though I still LIVE (I cannot emphasize that enough) for my morning cup of coffee (or two…), I am trying to get myself excited about tea again, because I have TONS.

So my mission, which I choose to accept, is to first sip down all the samples I have, sent to me last year by lovely Steepsterites, pre-baby.

Here’s what I love (or I did before, and am trying to again):

Butiki teas in general because the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base

Harney and Sons Paris is my all time favorite tea.

Mariage Freres and Kusmi are also on my awesome list.

I love creamy earl greys.

Also have an appreciation of oolong.

I have a mega stash of super flavored teas to work through, or I may try to sell them if I decide they are no longer for me. The sip downs will determine!

I love swapping!
Please note my Cupboard contains everything I have including minuscule samples of teas so it is not intended to be reflective of what I have available for swap…

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
