Holy cinnamon! Definitely that’s what I get from this tea (sample graciously provided by MissB). Lots and lots of cinnamon.

As it cools, it gets sweeter. Must be the “bits”! A bit of creamy icing comes out, and perhaps a bit of breadiness, but it remains kind of thin and lackluster in flavor. I mean, it’s drinkable, it’s decently tasty, but it just doesn’t do it for me. I can think of so many nice bready black teas that would be awesome with this (or maybe a bready, moderately roasted oolong!) instead of this tasteless black base. As before, my experience with Della Terra is all flavoring, no tea. Well, this is why I wanted (small!) samples of a bunch of them, to try a wider range of them without committing to their (rather too large for me) samplers.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
