Another of the three teas I purchased in my first Della Terra order.

My thoughts for this are mostly the same as my opinion on Classic Apple Pie. The flavoring is REALLY good (this was my favorite of the three I had) but the base tea is just too low quality for me now. I’m too snobby for this tea in other words, as much as I wish I liked it more.

The flavoring was incredible though. It legit tasted like oatmeal raisin cookies. The raisins included in the leaf really popped in the flavor, it had that cinnamon OVERLOAD flavor that I love, and I could actually taste an oaty-pastry flavor.

This would be a keep-in-the-cupboard-forever tea if the base tea was better. That said, it still prevented me from eating a bunch of cookies I otherwise would’ve had to sate my Fall-sweet tooth.

Hello! I’m a 24 year old Canadian, currently working at Starbucks while I figure out what I want to do with myself in life, haha.

Like most everyone else, I grew up with teabags, and then discovered the grass really WAS greener on the other side with loose leaf. Nowadays I drink nearly exclusively loose, but will drink a bagged tea if I don’t care what I’m having.

My favorite kind of tea is black, and unflavored, although I do enjoy an occasional dessert black. I like whites second best. I’ve recently been dipping my toes into honeybush tisanes, greens and oolongs.

My favorite vendors are Butiki Teas and Verdant Teas. Both have fantastic teas, above and beyond customer service (especially Butiki), and fair prices for their very high quality teas. I can’t recommend them enough.

Purely for tasting notes references, I don’t use any additives for my teas. Older tasting notes for blacks was with milk+sugar, and then with just milk. Whites, oolongs, greens and herbals are all drunk straight unless otherwise specified in the notes.
