Taking a break from reading The Walking Dead to post a review!

The dry leaf smells divine; chocolate and almond-y goodness. Steeped, it smells like amaretto – nice and sweet. I added quite a bit of agave (reg and hazelnut) to this pot but it isn’t coming through. I only steeped it for 3 minutes and it’s a little astringent. That’s what I like about Della Terra Teas though, lots of flavour with only a short steep.

I don’t like it as much as the other teas of theirs I’ve tried, but this would make an excellent morning brew when I’m tired and need a kick in the pants. Holding off on rating it until I fiddle with the steep time and additives.

I’m a queer lady in my late twenties who loves cats, comic books, travel, and photography. I fell in love with tea in late 2011. My “tea corner” is now threatening to overthrow the kitchen! I’m the worst at writing so I’m sorry about the babbling messes my reviews will most likely be.

DAVIDsTEA was my first introduction to loose leaf tea and I’ve remained pretty loyal to them (especially since they’re a Canadian company so their shipping price isn’t ridiculous and delivery is speedy!) I’ve recently ventured into teas by 52teas, Della Terra Teas and the Metropolitan Tea Company.

The first teas I really enjoyed were dessert ones (and I still overloaded them with sugar, blech!). I still like them but now I’m trying to get into less-sugary teas. I loooooove me a good genmaicha and have a weakness for most oolongs.
