The aroma of this Strawberries and Cream Green Tea from Della Terra Teas is best described as Mmmmmmmmmmmmm. Both in the steeped and dry form the smell is nothing short of perfection. Not only the strawberry and the cream scents, but the tea leaves themselves smell amazing!
Now I already knew going in that Della Terra has some of the best flavored teas on the market. For me they are right up top with Butiki Teas, and a handful of other places. This tea, is just indulgent, lovely, delightful, and about another twenty or so adjectives all adding up to bliss!
To be honest, I really am not even focusing on this review right now, this cup is that good! I keep getting sidetracked by the cup, sitting back inhaling in the sweet creamy aromas, enjoying the aroma of the tea leaves caressing my senses with their delicate, but attention grabbing nature. If they made a perfume that smelled like this I wold wear it. People may say I am too old to wear a scent that smells like a carnival, but put me in a pink tutu and parade me around the ring, I am all in with this tea! It reminds me of the fair, or a circus, and all of the sticky sweet smells that go along with it from spun sugar cotton candy, to kids blowing giant bubble gum bubbles, or the smell of funnel cake filling the air. Yet, it is not really all that sweet at all! The flavor of this tea is nothing close to sticky sweet! Its so natural, so pleasing with the grassy buttery tones of the tea, that while I may be taken into this sweet intoxicating world in my imagination, I am not putting that junk into my body! What could be better!?
Sorry I must end my review here and really sit back and lavish in the rest of my cup.

Premium Indian CTC black teas blended with organic flavoring. Amazing tea with a great bubblegum finish.

Well, this is the eighth and final tea for me to try from the Southern Boy Teas series, and I am kind of wishing I had made this one earlier, and maybe saved one of the others for last. I’m not saying that I dislike this tea – I am actually really enjoying it – but, it’s not my favorite.
However, I will say … this delivers exactly what it promises! This tastes like black tea and bubblegum. If someone were to liquify pink bubblegum and mixed it with black tea – the result would probably taste very much like what I’m drinking now.
The black tea is smooth and has a brisk, satisfying taste. Any bitterness or harshness that this tea might have had has been softened by the sweetness of the bubblegum flavor. The bubblegum flavor is very authentic tasting – this tastes like the pink bubblegum that we all know and that the child within loves, even if we don’t want to admit it! I taste creaminess to this, which enhances the overall “bubblegum” experience.
It is really very refreshing and tasty. It isn’t my favorite of these Southern Boy Teas, but, it is certainly good and I am enjoying it enough that I’d order it again!
