I had to work on Saturday (I do hate 6 day weeks), so this came with me in my Timolino to make my morning more bearable. I used 1.5 tsp of leaf, gave it approximately 3.5 minutes in boiling water, and added a splash of milk. I don’t usually try a tea for the first time in a Timolino, but I feel like I’m familiar enough with Della Terra’s flavoured blends to do that. This one is good – creamy from the vanilla, mildly minty, with a hint of chocolate smoothness rounding out the sip. It’s delicately sweet – not overpoweringly so, but enough to know that this is a dessert tea. There’s a hint of the base in the aftertaste, but it’s mostly malt and I can’t argue with that. Malty teas are my thing.

I enjoyed this one (although why it’s anti v-day, I’m not sure). My one real complaint is that it’s clearly a re-named version of an existing tea (or teas, actually). I’m thinking Swiss Mountain, Bats in the Belfry, Minty Cow…they’re all vanilla/mint/chocolate blends of one kind or another, and they all taste pretty much the same. So, while I enjoyed this one, I do feel like I’ve been here before. There’s nothing unique to be found. Still, sometimes familiarity is what I crave. Never more so than at 6.30am on a Saturday, when I should be in bed. Thank goodness for tea!

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

Hope you won’t have to work on Saturday for a long time to come now! And I agree, it seems like their chocolate vanilla mint teas with whatever festive sprinkles are the same. Tasty, but the same.

I love/hate all the colored sprinkly things Della Terra throws in there teas. It’s cut and fun and visually appealing. Fine mesh filters + sticky melted sugar is a special hell, though.

This tastes like a candy cane, though! Sweet and vanilla-y with just a pop of mint. It’s creamy without milk, but far better with.

I don’t know if I’m behind the sentiment, but a satisfying, well-rounded blend and totally covers a dessert-like mint tea craving.

i bought this tea from VariaTEA yay!
i’ll write a real note later.
happy friday everyone!


HI KITTY! Hi! Surprised my beast didn’t come running. :)


OMG. How did I not notice this in tumblr? I need to pay more attention for when you sneak things in!

(I hope my multitude of Hannibal reaction posts didn’t spoil everything for you guys)


ya know what happens,… i start to write a review and i’m such a slow writer that maybe 20 to 40 mins will pass between the time i open the post window and when i actually click post. so when it IS actually posted in the steepster feed, it’s sometimes half way down the page or even on the next steepster feed page already.
if i remember to, i’ve started composing reviews in an email and then posting them into the review. at least that way i have at least 3 min at the top :)


I do that too, Shmiracles! And I see you followed me back on tumblr. Mine is 99.99% reblogs. So.

It needs to be said here that VariaTea took a look at my shopping list, and then proceeded to put pretty much the whole thing into a package and mailed it to me. Our dear Anna in Italy did likewise, and this has resulted in an incredibly spoiled keychange indeed. You guys are so lovely. As my friend read out name after name of teas I’d coveted for so long, I just kept gasping and nearly teared up.
“So you guys just all send each other tea? Like, from around the world?”
“Yup, we sure do.” I said proudly.
“Wow. So isn’t coming home to your mail box and packaging off tea to send so much fun?”
“Oh, you have no idea.”

And man is it ever true.

So this tea was one I’d read really good reviews about, and a little while ago, i went through a phase where i wanted to try a lot of mint teas, especially vanilla mint teas, because I don’t typically like chocolate flavouring in my tea. But I’ve also come to realize that it sounded so much better in my head than it was in the cup, and this goes for pretty much any mint tea I’ve had: mint to be, Santa’s secret, the various dellaterra offerings. I think the only exception is Stacy’s peppermint patty, but I can’t remember that one nearly as well since I had it a while ago.

There’s a distinct smell to all dellaterra teas, I think, and this one was no exception. It did smell of vanilla or chocolate though, and I set to brewing it for four minutes. The mint is a bit muted here, covered by that vague dellaterra cake/vanilla/sweet combination of stuff, and the cup was definitely easy to drink, although I am grateful to know that I now won’t have to charge out and buy an oz of it (which I couldn’t do anyway LOL—the site is out).

Thanks so so much, VariaTea! Your package goes out Tuesday!

VariaTea is amazing! She’s done the same for me where she just goes through my shopping list (for a while I was keeping it very small so that she wouldn’t send me more stuff) for stuff to send, or takes notice of companies I really like, finds things for comparison with what I already have… Best tea swap partner ever!


She’s incredible! and of course I only have like three things on her shopping list, so I’m like scrambling around to find stuff, because that kind of generosity can’t go unchecked! LOL

Roswell Strange

Haha, bombard her with ALL THE TEA because before you know it she’ll be under 100 again…


I got some of the Queen in the EU swap box yesterday – it’ll be like we traded places on the dash!


Anna, you must let me know what you think of the Queen! she’s exquisite! and roswell, I’m going to see if I can’t find a few extras to pad things up a bit. No way I’m going to let her keep her cupboard down while the rest of ours skyrocket out of control! haha


Hehe, yeah – but don’t get your hopes up, it’s exactly the kind of tea I tend to avoid. You know, black and very tea-y. But I must try it!


Thanks guys. And I am just very happy to share. So many people have been so generous to me that I am happy when I can do the same for others.
