I’m cranky. I’m tired. I wanted tea more than anything tonight, and had little patience to find something I really, really wanted without caffeine. So, I grabbed this. I actually grabbed a few others prior, because I wanted to try something Della Terra -ish tonight as I made an order with them. This was the only decaf that smelled like something other than the seemingly standard maple syrup -flavored pancake syrup smell I’ve come to associate with many of DT’s rooibos teas.
Dry and steeped, I got little from this other than perhaps some carrot and rooibos. It’s an okay blend, however I’m still getting that pancake-syrupy sweetness and little else. Cream cheese? I wish I tasted some. Carrot cake? Well, maybe. A little, teensy bit?
I feel like I’m doing something wrong with these teas, as all of the DTs have basically tasted the same to me, so far. Not going to rate it, as my crankiness has now taken over.
