My Della Terra order arrived today from my Black Friday frenzy purchase. Just in time really because I had a few Christmas themed teas to try, including this one. My stomach has been a little off recently so mint teas in general have been my go to teas when I stick the kettle on. I’m lucky that mint especially peppermint reminds me of Christmas so ill as I may be at least I can still participate in some Christmas frolics.

Opening the packet I can smell a beautiful candy cane medley with subtle hints of chocolate. A candy cane coated in chocolate ….. oh my! Genius! The peppermint is sweet and thick but also fresh and creamy, definitely candy cane…more so than their (Della Terra’s) actual candy cane tea actually.

It’s nicely balanced in flavour, the peppermint is smoothed out by both the vanilla and the chocolate which gives a sweet, refreshing and rather light blend. More subtle than the scent but still packed with delicious flavour. The chocolate is the most subtle but it does become present in the after taste briefly.

Such a lovely blend, glad I picked this one up.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

I’m 34 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
