Evening decaf cup. This one was included for free in my Della Terra order (thank you!). It has a really strong aroma of spices – mostly cloves and cinnamon. The tea brews up a pretty very dark reddish purple color. The flavor is clove with a very tart finish. There is a musty and tart fruit aftertaste. I didn’t care for this tea at all until I added sweetener, and then suddenly it became a cup of smooth clove flavor with a sweet fruitiness to it. Still not a favorite, but I will be able to finish the sampler pack with a little sugar in each cup!
The fiancee and I went on a major cleaning spree today. All of the Christmas decor is tucked away for another year and the house is organized and sparkling clean. We kind of went a little overboard at the Yankee Candle clearance sale, so the house has candles in every room and smells so good. The candle nearest me is ‘Daisy Fields’ and it smells like fresh grass and pretty white daisies. I think I have a candle addiction.
