From TheLastDodo a while ago, thank you!  I never wrote a note for it yet and it’s almost gone.  Also no other tasting notes for this one, sadly. This is one of the teas from the wholesale seller of Della Terra, but not sure if Della Terra ever carried this one.  There are actual rice krispie cereal pieces here, which is fun.  The black tea is extremely light when brewed up (as Della Terra’s teas usually were) but also the age might be contributing to the lightness at this point.  Also, my latest patient steeping probably helps.  The flavor to me is MAPLE.  Very sweet and surprisingly flavorful after all this time.  However, I wish it had been more marshmallow treat than maple.
Steep #1  // 1 heaping teaspoon for full mug // 23 minutes after boiling  // 2 minute steep
Steep #2  // just boiled //  3 minute steep

Aww and I love the name (and snack hehe). It’s one of the few sweets that I really enjoy from time to time. It’d be pretty cool if there was a tea that tastes like Rice Crispy Treats!

I had high hopes for this tea. Probably much higher then I should have considering how much my friend paid for it. Granted price shouldn’t always determine whether it’s good or bad but quite honestly… this is bland. Can’t even taste the pineapple There isn’t even any grassy notes for the green tea. This is not a cup of tea its a cup of blah…

There are good cops and bad cops. This tea plays good cop.

If you want to find out the reason for my impending jail sentence, you should read this post:

Thanks for this one from your sale, TheLastDodo! I had to try this one. Unfortunately, this is nothing like any kettle corn I’ve tried. Though it isn’t a bad tasting blend. It just tastes like chocolate coconut instead of kettle corn? It’s definitely packaged well and not contaminated at all. I do see little pieces of coconut in the blend and one kernel of corn in what went in my infuser. I like the flavor, but I’d rename it!

Thanks to keychange for this tea! It was a fairly standard spiced black (ginger, heavy cinnamon, cloves), and not my favourite black, but was okay. Too much cinnamon-y flavouring though, IMO.
