drank Eight Candles by Della Terra Teas
1060 tasting notes

Backlogging from yesterday.

My Della Terra Teas have been sitting in my cupboard for months now getting little to no use. I decided to play around with this one a little and see if I could find the water temp and amount of leaf that would allow me to really enjoy this again. At the very least I wanted to find a decent water/leaf balance so I could start working on drinking this down.

I’m happy to report that two teaspoons of dry leaves for an 8 oz. cup and 200° F water made for a very decent cup. It was close to what I remember this tea being a couple of years ago when it was first introduced. I had a very nice dessert tea full of caramel marshmallow sweetness. The base tea was hard to taste, but, being that this is a flavored dessert tea, that didn’t bother me.

Yay for finding a happy spot!

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
